Re: Photo Radar

Drivers who exceed the 45-mile speed limit by 41 miles an hour will not only get a $510 ticket, but likely face criminal charges, according to Star Valley Traffic Enforcement Agent Dick Baranzini. I thought one of the limitations of photo radar and red light cameras was that it could only legally b...

GPS software

I just got a Garmin eTrex Vista HCx for christmas, and am anxious to try it out. I was wondering what software people use for analyzing their routes and creating waypoints for their gps? (I know I have to use the Garmin software to upload to it, but maybe there is something better for routes/waypoin...

Re: Winter Camping

I used a ridgerest & prolite 3 with a 15 deg bag, no liner, and was fine on snow with temps to the mid teens at night. Make sure you keep your feet dry, probably put an extra pair of socks in your bag to use at night so your feet can dry out if they get damp during the day.

Re: Winter Camping

Make sure your tent can support the weight of a night's snowfall on it, unless you want to have to wake up every hour to clear it off during the night. I'm not sure how wet the snow is around here, I would think it would be rather powdery. If you use 2 sleeping pads, you can't even tell that you're ...

Re: Fall Colours 2007

Escudilla trail was beautiful on Saturday, but rather crowded. Extremely windy, the leaves were dropping fast in the wind. The wind was insane at the summit, I didn't want to risk getting my camera out up on the fire tower. The wind ripping through the pillars of the tower sounded like a jet engine....

Re: Trans-Supes hike, November 2nd-5th

I hope there are more hikes like this soon, I can't make this one. A friend from back east is going to Death Valley that week, and I can't pass that opportunity up.

Re: What size pack would you recommend for 1-2 nighters?

I started out with a Gregory Palisade pack, and have been using it for 4 years now. They're very comfortable, but on the somewhat heavy side. The only thing I could see myself replacing it with is a lightweight pack, but "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I'm a big fan of the divider for the sleepin...

Can you show me where it's illegal to have empty (and cleaned) fuel canisters/stoves. It isn't listed on the TSA website as restricted, not could I find it anywhere else. I'm not saying your going to get thru 100% of the time with them, but I can't find where it's prohibited. Every airport I've bee...

Most airlines have plastic wrap or a large plastic bag you can place your pack in. Make sure nothing sticks out from the pack, if you have trekking poles cap the tips and strap them to the side of the pack, making sure they don't stick up above the top of the pack. If you're taking crampons, either ...

I tried Flatiron on sunday, but had to turn around at the "waterfall" because ice was building up on the rocks. That area of the hike got around 1/4 inch of snow in the 15 minutes that I was hanging around there, and the puddles were turning from slush to ice rather quickly. It was actually pretty n...

Humpreys trail conditions

Anyone know the condition of the Humphreys summit trail and the Weatherford trail? How much snow did the mountain get this past week?

http://freezerbagcooking.com/ is a pretty good source for a variety of lightweight recipes. We took a lot of ideas from that site on our 7 day Alaska hike. We got our food down to 12-14 lbs per person for the entire trip, including snacks. Everything was cooked by boiling water and pouring it into ...

Flatiron this saturday

Anyone up for a flatiron hike this saturday morning? I'm relatively new to the area, and from the descriptions it sounds like a great hike. I'm asking because also from the description it sounds like it's probably not the best idea to try it solo for the first time. I'm not worried about the difficu...
