So, wouldn't you know it.  After sending out my plans last night, I
received the following reply email from the NPS Capulin Volcano folks:

 "Hi Marvin. Thanks for contacting us.  Our planned re-opening is June
  15, however we are in the office and have opened earlier than
  expected.  We may still need to close to "retool" some of our
  procedures, but I am fairly confident we will be open on the 13th."

So, my newest, most current'est plan is to start the contest in DM86as
on Capulin Volcano.  From there I will move on to several locations in
DM86bx on the Colorado/New Mexico border.  Next, a wee bit further north
for DM87ba.  Then a long haul to the northern edge of DM87 and then the
southern edge of DM88  ---- all on Saturday.

IOW, a lot like my earlier plans -- just with Capulin Volcano inserted
at the front.

Sunday will see me doing my old, time proven grid sequence of DM78xa,
DM77xw, DM87bw, and DM88bb -- circling the 38°N, 104°W conjunction.

I'll be operating Rover Limited: 6M SSB-CW, 2M SSB-CW, and 432 SSB-CW.
