They need to pull the trigger on that retardant. Labarge and Whiskey are thick with grass right now.

Sorry, I assumed the "@" next to my handle meant you were replying to my statement and not the comments from 2011 that you are apparently responding to.

Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

@LindaAnn
That's a bummer you've had bad experiences with dogs but I don't see what that has to do with whether or not a dog on a lead could get bit or not. I'm not making any assumptions-- I'm just saying another scenario is possible. That dog may or may not have been on leash.

Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

I’m guessing the dog that was bit by a rattler near Wave Cave last week was probably off leash too. None of the articles I read said one way or the other, but I’m assuming the dog was far enough ahead and was able to stick its face in a bush that it wasn’t on a leash. I've almost stepped on a dozen...

Well there really is no tread from General Springs cabin east. I think most just follow FR300, but that's not the trail now is it? Following the blazes (diamond metal on trees) is not easy.
The trail parallels the road-- route finding problem solved.

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.

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.

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. 🤣
