The White Sands Crew #1, was assigned to "Division R" (Romeo). If you follow the road from H-5, SW to where the road enters the fire, thats where we started. We built line south of the road, working east, and Laguna Hotshots, started where you start hiking UP the mountain. (the first 90 degree elbow to the right)
