Deep Springs info: prospective students have to score 100% on SAT to even request an application, we had students at DS from all over the world, avg.# of 40,000 applicants yearly, 12 students enrolled yearly (w/2 alternate as backup).
Hey! I don't know where You guys 'found that stuff on DS'? Seriously! though... I Laughed Soooo Hard!!! "I Peed myself a little" Bwaaah! Hah!Hah! 'Really Guys Thanks for the Entertainment! But if Y'all visit the area You Really NEED to RIDE Hwy168E. into the Valley, @the Top O' Westgard Pass is the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest (the Oldest Living thing 'Bristlecone Pine tree' In-the-World) there's a FS-campground there.
I had several ADV/Desert bikes & DS had ATVs for the students to ride, "and we Rode the S##t! out of them.
"I Wholeheartedly Believe Pro-Wrestlers Are The Greatest Athletes in The Universe" LOL!
FYI: there are some unique animals inhabiting the Valley (not found elsewhere)
ps: our student Cowboys (students have to learn 'Cowboying to tend the Herd & Ranch + Farm) we were 'Totally Off-Grid/Self-Sufficient' w/Cattle & Farm livestock, Hydro & Solar + Wind power. (the Cowboys would have to stay-out some nights to tend the Herd & they would sometimes come back in the morn' Spooked @something they saw 'Out There'. But they Never would Tell me What IT Was. Afterwards several students Refused to Go Out into the Desert after Dark. (so might be there's Truth in some of the Conspiracies)???
Thanks Again! I'll be looking further into DS Lore... Aloha & Mahalos! booter
