20 Mule Team Kits Available Once Again
This is just to let you know that the 20 Mule Team Model Kits are once again available. I just returned from a trip to death valley and much to my surprise, there were the 20 mule team model kits again. They were being sold at the Borax Museum in Furnace Creek.

The kits are available on-line at: http://www.muleteamkits.com
and also at: The Furnace Creek Resort

It is great to see that these models are once again available.
