Re: USGS Survey Markers??

@rcorfman I may be wrong, but based on my experience locating Reference Marks I've always used the number after METERS (in this case) as the direction in degrees, like so: U2086| CH5529 SUPERSTITION RM NE 1.760 METERS 04312 | = 43.12° (roughly Northeast) DU2086| CH5531 SUPERSTITION RM 3 6.053 METER...

Re: USGS Survey Markers??

How does one find the datasheet with the above info? Go to the link YOU posted above: (https://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/ds_desig.prl) 1. Enter the name of the Station Name (in this case "SUPERSTITION") 2. Pick the State (in this case "Arizona") 3. Select the Data Type Desired (I usually choose "Any...

Only from the north.
As long as the creek wasn't running excessively by Ellison ranch I've never had any issues from the south.

Re: Basecamp near Reynolds creek

@BRichard I'd settle for Honey Creek Divide. There are many hikes within a 10-15 minute drive of there, and best of all, there are numerous hiking options right from the campsite. When we camped there in June 2018 one of our hikes was to Reynolds Creek along Forest Road 3222. On another hike we wen...

Re: Snake Gaiters -worth it?

I agree... seems to me strike-proof is a great deal more important than strike-deterrent.

Re: Did the "4/6/19 GPS rollover" affect your device?

Got any ideas how I can? Time/Date: Check it against the calendar and known accurate clock. (Computer or phone is good) Quick check for location: At a known location, does your GPS show it correctly?

Did the "4/6/19 GPS rollover" affect your device?

The date/time field for GPS systems was originally a 10-bit number denoting the number of WEEKS from the start, so... the GPS week started January 6, 1980 and it became zero for the first time midnight August 21, 1999. Since that was before many devices were in the hands of the public it was just a ...

Re: Doll Baby TH to LF Ranch, River Route

The road is fairly easy walking and not much further than the shortcut but it is a road, I guess I would be interested in how easy is the short cut? Does it involve a lot of brush? It would save one mile of hiking, .9 mi vs 1.9 mi. At one time it was a road down to Tub Draw and based on the satelli...

Re: Doll Baby TH to LF Ranch, River Route

@Sredfield
Not sure about following the river, especially with a backpack... while we followed it in April 2015, we very likely would not have been able to do it without getting wet when we were there last month.
I'd just follow FR406W.

Re: City Creek Trailhead?

Drive another 1.3 miles west of City Creek trailhead and you'll find the Doll Baby trailhead is a better choice with plenty of room.
Not sure I'd want to leave a vehicle there for 2 weeks.
I'd recommend contacting the Tonto National Forest Payson District Office for more information: 928-474-7900

What route? #1. AZ 288 south to Board Tree Saddle then FR 203 down to AZ 288? #2. FR 54, south to FR 329 and connect to FR 203 just south of Board Tree Saddle? Having driven Option #2 you'll rack up 55 miles and 4300' AEG as you DESCEND from 5100' to 2300'. Plenty of fun, beauty, rough & rocky 'road...

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

Needed to occasionally empty the trash folder to keep it working. That is a possibility... if you delete files (windows) or send them to trash (Mac), unless you Empty Recycle/Trash bin, the space is not there for use. Which is why I always empty trash whenever I delete files from my GPS... and that...
