Re: MEALS

Here's the start of a meal planning spreadsheet for Group 1, using a format similar to that started by Group 2. This was originally created in Google Sheets, but I've attached the spreadsheet in Excel in case you want to fill in your meal ideas. If you use the spreadsheet, update it and then re-post...

Re: MEALS

JumpingCholla - Nice Chart! Dave - The dates should be 5/3, 5/4...5/12. Group 2 - I'm OK with the assignments. In the spirit of full disclosure, I'm traveling with Ice Chest and not refrigeration or freezer, so I figure I can cover fresh eats through the 6th, and after that, it will need to transiti...

APRS for a Beginner

I have just installed an APRS-capable radio and it is now up and running. The radio is the Yaesu FTM-400XDR/DE. I'm using the following software to program the radio: Advanced Data Management System ADMS-M400-RSD with data transferred to the radio via a MicroSD card. Fortunately, the radio interface...

Wavian Jerry Cans

JerryCan.com has a deal on Wavian Jerry Cans. The first can is 10% off, the second and subsequent are 20% off. Two cans cost me $135.34 including shipping and tax. I have never dealt with this company before, but they ship from California, so at least the shipping "should" be reasonably fast. https:...

Temperatures and Rain - General

I did a little looking into the average temperature and rainfall for the Parashant area, and did not find much. Here are some tables for the Grand Canyon, including the North and South Rims and in the Inner Gorge.

Re: GENERAL PLANNING

I'm currently installing an APRS capable radio, and may have some questions once it is up and running. As far as a generator or refrigerator, I don't have either in a size appropriate to carry in my Jeep. Working in pairs on meals sounds like a good way to go. Not having cell phone coverage signific...

Fuel

I'll be in a Jeep TJ, so carrying more than about 10 gallons of extra petrol on the racks will be a challenge for me, and I'm reluctant to carry fuel inside the vehicle. I will take a look and see if there is a safe way to expand that capacity.
