Re: OAUSA Net - 8/28, 2014 - Wilderness Navigation

First and foremost I want to say there is no substitute for: 1) doing your homework or pre-trip planning to include calling the local agency that is responsible for the area(s) you are going to visit and 2) understanding how to use a map and compass and then being able to use that knowledge in conju...

Re: OAUSA Net – 8/21/14 Trails in the Inyo and White Mountains

Mazourka Canyon: http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/bishop/suv/route_8_text.print.html Both lode and placer mining claims have been worked in Mazourka Canyon for over 100 years. Tunnels and shafts, many quite dangerous and unguarded, are found throughout the canyon. Bonanza Gulch, a side canyon to the ...

Re: OAUSA Net - 8/14//14 - Keeping Food Fresh in the Wilderness

Another technique we use for these trips is our common family recipe marinades. We have, just like most families, our favorite marinades for BBQing. Why change that while you are camping? We marinade with the same special ingredients without the mess of bring all that kitchen stuff with us but we fr...

Re: OAUSA Net - 8/14//14 - Keeping Food Fresh in the Wilderness

I have heard the several nets and discussions concerning the 12v cooler/freezers and I just wasn't up to spending the money for one of these, although they are really nice units and well worth it if you get out there and use them. For one weeklong camping trip/year with the family and the considerat...

Re: Handgun Class

A big consideration I have when looking at the 9mm, .40 and .45 choice is magazine capacity and the reason to pick one over the other. Most semis come with high capacity magazine capability in other states. However, for legal carry in CA you can only have a 10 rounder. So, if you can bump up in cali...

Re: OAUSA Net July 31, 2014 - Camping Repair Kit

BTW: Knowing a few good knots always helps. Rope and paracord management is very important because sometimes the wrong knot is just a tragedy waiting to happen. From my Ranger days: " MONGASSO Knot " Enough of the wrong knot in order for it to hold and meet the intended purpose (if you don't know th...

Re: OAUSA Net July 31, 2014 - Camping Repair Kit

I recommend (not in any order of priority): 1. 550 Paracord 2. Shrink Wrap 3. Bungees 4. Hockey Cloth Tape 5. Self-Adhesive Sport Wrap 6. Spray Cooking Spray/Petroleum Jelly (leaves an oily film but it works good on pine pitch) 7. Various Sized Snap Links 8. Waxed Dental Floss (in addition to the se...

Re: OAUSA Net - June 12, 2014 - Wilderness Communication Options

I am a real big fan of the Garmin Rino line. I have not yet got into the APRS system but for a one on one, one on many communication product, without a license, the Rino line transmits the location of one GPS/Radio to any of the other radios monitoring the same channel/CTCSS setting. Your specific r...

Been pretty busy over the past few weeks but I thought I would post a couple of moon pictures for sharing not necessarily for the banner.

Re: OAUSA Net - March 13, 2014 - Vehicle Maintenance

In case someone besides me needs some help picking the right glove. I am always confused about it because I may not be allergic, but there may be others who can't tolerate latex. I tend to buy a box and put them in various kits as personal protective equipment (go bag, medical kit, etc.). slide-1-10...
