Re: North Rim Grand Canyon 2018

First, I'd like to thank Dave for planning and orchestrating a great expedition style trip! I have been wanting to go on one of his trips for years and finally made this one. The initial impression was that the trip wasn't too different from the usual 3 or 4 day trips I generally do with the differe...

Re: GENERAL PLANNING

All,

It looks like we'll have an opportunity to do a comparison test and write up on shower tents for a future net.

Re: GENERAL PLANNING

I plan to bring my shower tent. I've started using a converted pressure garden sprayer as a shower. I fill it with warm water heated on the stove. I find that it's less hassle than using the Zodi and uses much less water. I can get a decent shower and wash my hair with about 3/4 of a gallon of water...

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 same...
