Re: MEALS

Dave, 1. Are there any restrictions where we are going regarding the use of open fires or charcoal (for Dutch ovens)? 2. Are we planning on having campfires? I wasn't planning on bringing any Dutch oven equipment due to the weight, need for charcoal, and not knowing about fire restrictions. The sam...

Re: OAUSA Net - April 19, 2018 - 5 Minute Destinations

DESERT WILDFLOWERS Much of the American Southwest has desert areas, whether the Mojave or elsewhere, and spring time bring out the color. Every year is different with something new to offer.

Re: GAS CANS

REMINDER i recommend 6 Jerry cans of gas (5 gallons each.) Water is not availabale in the Parashant, with the exception of natural springs. Relying on springs is risky and we should not depend on them. The only other exception is the Bar 10 Ranch where we will be able to resupply. The Bar !0 Visit ...

Re: GENERAL HAM RADIO & APRS

There are a number of reasons for using APRS, One of the more important ones is to keep track of the other members of the group. If we are spread out for any reason, we will want to locate the lost or injured member. While we should be able to receive simplex beacons from everyone without the benefi...

Re: MEALS

All 1. On the beverage question, It seems like a compromise may be a good approach. While I plan on making coffee and orange juice for my breakfast, not everyone will do so, (which is not a problem.)
