It was in the AZT app that Tracey showed me an icon where AZT 17 crosses FR 4, which is where it had the water info I mentioned.
NOTE: The supply box used to be
at the AZT#17 TH (at the end of #16) but it was so remote and rough on equipment driving out there it was moved to FR 4, which was the same reason I quit driving out there as well.
While the driving conditions on FR 4/Telegraph Canyon Road are far better than the drive to 16/17 TH, it does have some pretty rough areas. If one is willing to drive slow and carefully, it can be done in a stock AWD SUV or a 2WD pickup... I've seen it done a number of times and my first time was in stock Nissan Pathfinder. (Of course it WAS better suited to my Samurai or my Cherokee)
I hear what you're saying about being 'one-sided' when it comes to water stashed for private use in a 'public use' supply box. However, at times it's offset when the water is marked 'for public use after
' a specific date... which is what we will do if we have water left over.
That said, we rarely cache water in public boxes or conspicuous locations, usually off-trail and well-hidden.
