    and a good lesson to learn while only 1/100th the way to Patagonia, would have been a much harder lesson over much of the remainder of the trip.
    I really like you photography, I love taking shots of fungi and rivers.

    Hey bud,
    GPS has saved my ass a few times. If for nothing else, it gives you a snail trail to follow back out. It gives you a coordinate if you need it for emergencies.. I started with a garmin GPSmap 62st and it was good but the power connection is a USB cable (WTF Garmin?). Now I am using a Garmin Montana and its been working nicely.

    I'm glad you made it back to Moab. Safe rather then sorry is always the better option when traveling. Keep on keeping on man!:clap

    After having Hessian42 at the house for the last few days he is heading out north from LA.

    If any of the ADV'ers out there along his path have any reservatiosn about putting him up for night or two I can vouch he is a stand up person and has some pretty good stories to tell.

    You will just have to put up with the fact he smells like a camp fire.

    :lol3

    Or course the dogs will love it so you would have that going for ya...

    If you need to make some cash, I could put you to work for a week. You'd just be hump'n pipe and drilling holes for labor wages and you could stay in the motor home if your interested...
