You might try something with a wider band for your head or I like the Petzel Bindi ( 200 lumen max) which I tend to wear like a necklace as a back up to my main headlamp. I've even used it on my arm or wrist in a pinch. The only drawback is it is so small that I tend to misplace them. I have 3 I thi...
That is nice to learn about a smart phone that I did not know. My phone is definitely in some aspects smarter than me. I still find all the screens on phones, etc too small and too fiddly to navigate on. I still have trouble sometimes with "fat finger" just unlocking the thing. So, if I need a map i...
19 years ago I was leaving for work when the first plane had hit one of the towers. At first everyone was like, " what a terrible accident" . I don't remember my commute time but I did not have the radio on in the car. At work I was the first one there opening up and turned on our little background ...
I don't consider myself "old" I guess, but I do hope my best hiking days are not in my rearview mirror. I have a lot to do and see yet. When I get to where I can't walk then I plan to do river trips ( with other people--boo) and maybe horsepacking trips to get into places like the Winds. Assuming I ...

There should be a small single propeller plane following with a banner " Forget your college fund; a portion of mom and dad's paycheck garnished for their lifetime for a token payment of what this will cost".

Never cleaned it. Using mainly MSR bladders, simple valves, I like them because not as thin as some. I just throw the thing into the bin in the refrigerator then put it in a cooler to take in the warmer months. In the cooler months just out of the frig into the pack, water warms enough to not be too...
I know once I post photos I consider them out of my control at that point. That is why I post a lot more carefully now; and quite a few of my photos do not see the interwebs. A sunrise or set, an interesting rock, critters, cool. Other things, uh, not so much.
Well the nearby Griffin fire is over 60K acres and merged with the Champion fire (?) with parts of Hwy 60 closed over from Hwy 70 junction. Also now the Medler Fire ( may have misspelled that) over on Cherry Creek with concerns in the Rockhouse area, Dagger ranch and Coon Creek ranch areas. It's sma...

I want an electric quad. Yeah they make them but most look like crap and have very limited range for what I want to do. And are expensive for what they are.
Who names these fires?? For a feature I suppose. I think the next duo needs to be named Smoking and Weed. Can see ADOT signage now=== "do not report smoking weed" and " hwy 87 closed due to smoking weed". Or Area 51--- " all activities such as camping, hiking, driving, even breathing are prohibited ...
Also nearby to the Salt are the Gin and Griffith fires--- they missed naming the latter shoulda' used lime or tonic for that one IMO. Also two small fires in Rincons' Spud Rock and Mica, at this time the AZT is not impacted but that could change, multiple trails closed I believe on the north and wes...
I think all of these funds should be audited yearly in a surprise audit from an unknown CPA firm from outside the US selected by a random committee at the last minute. I trust that money will get there like I trust any politician that says " we must support the middle class" or " we have to do it fo...
Yes, it all sounds good whatever. WTH are we getting that money. Why doesn't the government just let us have our own printing presses and according to our life averaged income then add 10% for being a good little boy or girl, we print our own currency and go our merry way. Or send everyone a debit c...
