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

hmmm... I went in and checked for updates. I have an old Etrex Venture HC. An update became available last month but I can't get it to successfully update-- I'm sure because its a dinosaur. I'm always amazed it still turns on. Back to the junk drawer it goes! There are no new updates available for m...

Re: Death Valley N.P. enlarged

@SAMBA CAC profits from oil drilling-- regardless of the great things their homepage says about themselves. I didn't vilify them. They're doing what most businesses do when allowed-- nothing especially evil there. Time will tell-- maybe protecting this other land will outweigh the damage of more dr...

Re: Death Valley N.P. enlarged

This type of legislation is theft and its embarrassing that people fall for it. The CAC buys some dirt cheap land anywhere they can find it and trades it to the American people for some extremely valuable land. Then Washington throws some completely unrelated shiny things into the legislation to mak...

@chumley Compromise is great but unfortunately this is not that. The devil is in the details-- in section 1493: "(iii) identify not less than 500,000 acres of economically viable Federal land, being managed by any Federal land management agency, in or outside the State that can be made available to...

Re: Death Valley N.P. enlarged

This same bill hands over "at least" half a million acres of pristine Alaskan public land to the Chugach Alaska Corporation and also allows for more freedom in the route of a new oil pipeline.

There's your catch. This bill is not a win.

Re: Superstitions in a Winter Storm

I was getting so many naysayers in the facebook post, but few seemed to be speaking from practical experience of hiking in the Superstitions. That group has 23,000 members, many of whom have never actually set foot outdoors. That Facebook group is a prime example of how much bad information, ignora...

Or stick with the iPhone. They'll slow down your phone to let you know when it's time to buy a new one. 🤣

Re: Wilderness Group Size Limit

Then again, the premise of the Wilderness Act is to NOT manage the land. Incorrect. The Wilderness Act of 1964: A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man...

Re: Wilderness Group Size Limit

@JVFurniss I appreciate you making that effort but interpreting legislation does not fall under the authority of a ranger. They can merely ensure and enforce compliance and I don't think anyone has accused the AMC of not being compliant. With that said, we will likely not agree but I think your org...

The AZT is not all "desert". I believe there's a good 8,000 feet of elevation between the low and high points-- so think versatility.

@foxhazel
What I've learned about hammocks is that people like me who don't "hang" are always surprised at how successful experienced hammock folks are in areas that would appear impossible at first glance.

Maybe a pro like @te_wa will respond with some good info.
