    Garmin BaseCamp Organization

    Since I'm on a Mac I have to use BaseCamp and it's generally workable. But the "My Collection" catalog is frustrating. My main issue is that you can't have objects of the same name in multiple lists, e.g. you can't reuse names for waypoints since they are really just pointers in the lists to...

    Swivel Hoist Rings

    I've seen swivel hoisting rings used on bumpers, wondering what people think of them as a recovery point? It looks like typically a 7/8" ring is rated for 8,000 lbs W.L.L. and they are often overhead lifting rated, which makes me feel...

    Tablets with robust power connector

    Looking for tablets that have robust power connectors, either improved USB or ideally something dedicated. I know about the Toughpads but $1500 isn't anywhere in the budget. So any recommendations or tablets that have proved not to develop power connector issues? I'm not super pleased with...

    Garmin Basecamp and GEO JPG

    I've been trying to figure out a problem with Basecamp that when I import a KMZ that is a collection of geolocated JPEGs they lose resolution. If I import the KMZ into Google Earth it looks fine, all the detail is present. Wondering if there's a setting or something I'm missing about Basecamp...

    Old Warn XD9000 Rebuild

    Starting to tear into a needed rebuild of my old XD9000. Ran into some questions that will require Warn help I think, but wanted to throw it out to see if anyone has any info. Winch works fine but it needs grease and some paint. So I'll potentially need gaskets, o-rings, that sort of thing...

    Vehicle Wire Color Standards

    There are many standards for low voltage wiring and even some that specify the color used. As far as I know, though, there's not a unified SAE for vehicles. But the convention for accessories is red is +12V and black is battery return. The British BS-AU7 depreciates red to a switched use...

    Boring Hams Talking About The Weather

    In a now closed thread several times it was derisively mentioned about crusty old hams just talking about the weather. This does happen, but it's no different than sitting in a bar talking about the NFL or around a campfire talking about lockers or at the coffee machine at work talking about...

    Joshua Tree UClimb

    Got this link in a Mountain Gear email. Don't known anything about UClimb, but they have a beginner's clinic in Joshua Tree in early Feb. Might be a good event for some of you in SoCal to learn to climb...

    Moab Trails Put at Risk by Drilling Leases

    In the interest of being hit full force, there are trail conflicts out in Moab but this time it's not the evil environmentalist. Rather it's the evil oil & gas interests. Write letters everyone! Action Alert For Immediate...

    USA-ALL and SUWA

    A member of my 4WD club (Rising Sun 4WD of Colorado) posted this today on our club mailing list. I thought it is poignant and so I wanted to forward it here. Not to force the political issue, but the honest truth is that with a Democrat-controlled government we really do need to watch groups...

    IPF 200mm Headlights

    I've been running Hella Vision Plus headlights and I've been happy with them. But one of them got a big crack from an errant rock and needs to be replaced. A couple of people now have told them that they love their IPF 7" round headlights and both of them have used the Hella housing...

    Tour de France coverage

    So what are you guys doing about watching the race? We don't have cable or anything, so I usually watch the other races via or event feeds (the Tour of California had excellent daily live web coverage this year, but then again I don't personally have a problem with Frankie as a color...

    Local Repeaters

    Finally got software to program my radio. While setting up the file from the ARRL repeater guide for SLC, Utah & northern Nevada, I remember how many are listed for Denver and of those the relatively smaller number that I would consider heavily monitored at any time. Say there's 40 combined 2m...
