Re: Mountain Biking

On the dirt I was a regular in Chino Hills, it's a great place with lots of average fire roads and awesome technical single track. I've run into mountain lion, bobcats and a large pack of coyot's. out there. :lol: Last time I went to CH, I was riding down the trail and a large coyote was loping up....

Mountain Biking

OK, guys, you know I had to start this eventually. I figured this was the best place. Anyway, my first choice for mountain biking is good old Skyline Drive in Corona. I can ride there from my house, one of my geocaches is up there, and it's a great ride down. I've also taken the Scouts riding in the...

Even a tree-hugging*, bike riding, backpacking, scuba diving, dutch oven cooking, Scout leader such as myself is welcome!

Map & Compass

Well, when it comes to backcountry navigation, I'm a traditionalist. Map and compass! Now, I like my GPS, but the only direction you are guaranteed of finding is down. Do you know how to find north and south at night? Star power. East-West during the day? Stick a stick in the dirt. There's even a wa...

Re: Little Corona Dive

Equipment? I went as cheap as I could, which is a relative term with digital dive cameras! :lol: I use an Olympus FE-280 in a dive housing. It's almost neutral bouyant, and very easy to handle under water (unlike the FLOAT my last camera was). Battery life is quite good. Not a bad little camera (I u...

Re: Little Corona Dive

These photos were taken this morning, 10/10/08. The viz was variable but typically pretty good. About 10' on average. I've found the best viz in Laguna is at Moss St. But the waves were so big there today we decided on plan B, which turned out to be a great dive! Hardly any surge at Little Corona. G...

Re: Dutch Oven Practice

I am a huge fan of the Lift-n-Grill. http://www.lodgedutchovens.com/products/stoves/liftngrill/liftngrill.html I use this device almost exclusively now. It reduces my cook time about 10 to 15 minutes. Most dishes take about 45 minutes. It's especially important in the desert, where it can be...uh......
