    Heck, a pony tail would be cute. And safer :)

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    He probably looked at the map, saw the trees and rationalized that it was all downhill, then, when it got rugged, felt committed. Sorry for the couple.

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    I agree, that for them, it was a viable option. Probably not much else to burn out there :-). Just as a general precaution about what to do when lost - maybe the best advice is to think long and hard about your choices - before making them. Looking at Willow Creek on GE and in the NPS...

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    Might as well add my opinion to this thread. Disclaimer: I'm not a cartographer or a former Marine and I don't even know where the Holiday Inn Express is. I do, however, have many years of experience traveling in rugged country. I too, live in the desert and whenever I venture off pavement...

    HUMAN FECES

    Honestly, lower Sycamore is already so trashed, they should just charge access fees and build some outhouses, but no, they will likely just close it, then the crowds will just move on down the road to the next party spot.

    HUMAN FECES

    I'm not sure that I would be willing to confront someone in the backcountry about their sanitary activities. If I saw something blatant, I'm more likely to record it, then turn it over to the forest cops. I'm fully convinced that adults know exactly what they are doing, and their children...

    Pictures of Food Cooked in the Great Outdoors

    Dang. My problem is that there is little time to take pictures of my dinners - I'm more focused on eating it... NY Strip and Ribeye cooked on a rock. (somebody forgot the grill)

    HUMAN FECES

    I see that as compounding the problem, not solving it. Much like how people deal with animal feces in a local mountain park. Oh, sure, they bag it in a nice little sack. Some are even designer colors. You know this because they leave these bags prominently displayed along the trails.

    HUMAN FECES

    Have to agree with the above. I have started practicing LNT camping lately - what I mean by this is that not only do I not leave a trace, I also pick up other's trash. I have always either properly buried my waste, or used a porta-jon. With me being the only man in my family of four, the...

    Freeze dried hash browns - who else likes them?

    Okay, well, I'm doing a solo couple of days in the desert next week. This thread revival got me to thinking about those dang hash-browns. Ima pretend for a couple of days that the word "diet" doesn't exist. Hash browns and sausage gravy is on the menu. So is steak, whiskey and beans :-)

    Freeze dried hash browns - who else likes them?

    IMHO, With raw potatoes you have to grate them, soak them, drain them and cook them. They can still turn up soggy. When I use raw potatoes, I typically bake them first, then slice them thick with some onlons and peppers, cooked in bacon fat is the best. The box kind is lighter weight, stores...

    best swamp cooler location

    Swamp coolers do not recirculate air. They need windows cracked to work most efficiently. They also need water. Think of a fan blowing air through a wet towel. Higher humidity kills efficiency. Maybe you mean A/C? I would suggest rooftop for that

    Abandoned/derelict sites

    I believe this is some sort of burning tower/furnace for maybe a sawmill ? https://mapio.net/pic/p-15315282/ Also called a "teepee", "wigwam" or "beehive" burner - for burning scrap/wood chips...
