Jim Devel worked on worm snakes today. Took dummy back to F S today.
Accounts tonight.

(June 9 Continued from Feb. 6)

The interference from truck lights, the difficulty of stopping safely, and the high speed we undoubtedly passed up many COR's and DOR's, we had no means of knowing how many. Never had a better illustration of the objection - able features of heavily traveled roads. Certainly lost one large snake near the Riverside County line and another near Valerie. It was very disappointing after the wonderful going in the Borego area.

1 Sonora |COR| 3 mi. NW of Kane Spring, 10:55, 76°
1 Arizona M. |DOR| 2 mi. SE of Oasis, brushy desert
1 Leaf-nose L |DOR| Oasis, Saved
1 Desert Gopher L |DOR| Oasis

Arrived at Indio at 12:10. Warm and windy. Cognaturs heard at Oasis, Valerie and Indio. 1/2 moon arose as we landed. Pickled specimens until 12:40. This was the best evening hunt I have ever had. 31 life snakes including the injured worm snake and Sonora.

Notes

I can't figure out what he's wrote on "difficulty of stopping soply"? And the other I was a little confused about was towards the bottom regarding Cognaturs heard at oasis?
