Re: New Mexico Bighorn Sheep

@Tough_Boots
Bighorn are a little more nimble than an old heifer. I think they’ll be just fine.

Is it still considered monsoonal when rain in September taps tropical moisture?

Re: Shelters with no zippers

I have had a bad experience with the zippers on my tents only lasting 3-5 years Arizona's dust is brutal on zippers. I will say that despite the zippers failing over time, Big Agnes has fixed my tent and fly zippers on several occasions now. They charge a whopping $5, which I consider reasonable fo...

Re: Aravaipa Flash Flood & Rescues

I was elsewhere that weekend, but I did get 11 separate notifications of Aravaipa flooding (I've signed up for them), with the highest at 5950cfs. That's an impressive flow! For the better part of two days it was around 1000cfs. It flashed at around 6pm on Sept. 1st, and was back below 100cfs by 9am...

How else am I to know if I'm on one of the GC Corridor trails?
Simple. You'll be knocked over by an endless line of people with no regard for the incredible scenery and majesty of the landscape, but primarily concerned about their quest for some FKT or personal "race" instead.

Re: Route Scout - GPS Topo Mapper

@garyc57 The highlighted direction letter and “cone” should indicate that the map turns depending on the direction you go. Non-highlighted direction letter and no cone and the map should always be facing north. The letter will change to indicate which ordinal direction you are actually moving. I do...

In the lower left corner there's an N for north. Tap it and it will orient the map the way you are moving rather than north/up.

Re: Route Scout - GPS Topo Mapper

Does RS have the intelligence to know that I'm "on-track", and doesn't care if I miss a point or two? A lot of info in the replies above! :lol: Short answer: yes. You can set how far off track you go before it notifies you (e.g. 100 feet). It doesn't care how you get back there, but once you're bac...

Re: Lightning safety when hiking

@trekkin_gecko I’ve read about instances where DEN shuts down completely due to lightning and the requirement for any ground crews on the ramp to go indoors and wait 30 minutes from the last strike. Puts a huge crunch on an airport when that happens!!

Re: delorme inreach

My one experience with the weather reports that inreach provides was less than impressive. Unlike a NWS pinpoint forecast (like you can get on the HAZ map), inreach gives the forecast for the nearest town/city rather than where you actually are. So, when you're backpacking in the Sierra Nevada, you ...

And that's why you probably shouldn't buy a Subaru!! That's about half of what I would expect a more reliable vehicle to deliver before you start contemplating a possible replacement! :M2C:
