Re: Kendrick Peak lookout and helicopter pad

@The_Eagle fato would most likely not come into play here and there were probably no guidelines in place for building a helideck in 1979. Even in the Gulf there were no minimum helideck standards until 1994 or 1997 when they required the minimum size to be 24x24'. The older ones particularly in the...

Re: Backpacking Stoves.

@azbackpackr A wide diameter pot rather than a narrow tall jet boil shaped pot works much better with the cat tin design along with a wind screen. An offshore worker makes penny stoves out of the soda pop cans he drinks while watching tv. They are a little more time intensive, but I have to test th...

It takes less than 5 minutes. You could have made it in the time it took to write the previous post. Ha!

Re: Route Scout - Never Stops Issue

@joebartels
I just noticed the update I've been out of town. I now know how many miles it is to fly from Lafayette to the Springs. :) I'll check this weeks as I have a little leaf peeping to do.

Route Scout - Never Stops Issue

Any idea why my route scout gives me 1 mile updates after saving and closing app on the drive home. Also have noticed when I go to use it that it evidently has been tracking in the back ground even though I haven't started an activity since the last time I used it.

Yep that would be Bernat the kom pup 10 weeks 30lbs. He is going to keep the mountain lions from eating our kids when he gets bigger. Doesn't seem to mind hanging on the deck in the rain with 40 degree temps this morning.

Highest forecast temp for the next two weeks is 75, but mostly in the 60's. Now if Galveston would just cool off and dry up a bit I''d be golden.

Re: $500 EpiPen

I'm not looking forward to replacing my next set. I paid $100 dollar copay earlier this year. Up through 2004 I had no copay on them and they generally good for two years. Now they always have a one year expiration and who knows what my next copay will be. Requiring them to be replaced every year in...

Phoenix Rock Gym. Climb a couple days week to stay in shape. Bingo. That's how I met someone who puts up with me. She even likes to hike. Devils' Chasm isn't a good first hike or second hike.
