Desert base camp

I’m considering the establishment of a “base camp” at the site of a deserted mining camp which I discovered just inside the southern edge of the Deep Water wilderness. I think this location would make a good place to slowly build up a permanent camp to use as a launching point for exploration into the deep wilderness beyond. The only down side is the fact that the camp is located on the lee side ‘beach” of a small and rugged island, which itself is smack in the middle of an enormous flash flood basin. If I were ever there when the flood came then I’d be trapped, and in for quite an experience. Still, the fact that the miner’s camp is still intact after more than 100 years may indicate that the location is relatively safe.
