    Sacramento - can you look at a used Jeep for me?

    I have a friend looking for a Grand Cherokee Overland. He found one in Sacramento that is a cream puff according to the salesguy on the phone. But you know how that goes when you are coming from 1100 miles away to buy it. FWIW they will pay for his plane ticket to come and get it. Can you say...

    Chaco Canyon

    The epicenter of an Anasazi culture spread across 30,000 square miles of high desert was located in NE New Mexico. I had read and seen quite a few interpretations of what is there. Almost everything about the Chacoans is debated. Only 2 things are clear- people lived here 1000 years ago and...

    How do I calculate airflow of a supercharged engine?

    I'm helping a friend figure out an air cleaner solution for his JK with a supercharger and need to know how much airflow is necessary. The Donaldson catalog specs airflow at 6", 8" and 10" of H20 of restriction. The engine is a 3.8 running 8 psi boost with a maximum RPM of 5500. Also, which...

    Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx $250

    Here's a photo of the GPS and all of the stuff that goes with it. The Topo map program is the old 1:100,000, non routable map version that I don't recommend you use anymore. You should still get the new routable 24k Topo map for whatever region you are exploring. I can fill the included 64mb...

    Midsummer Hole in the Rock Trip

    It really started out as the usual midsummer San Juan Mountains trip because there is no more pleasant and wildflower-rich location to spend a 4 day weekend in August. Adam (Gokracer1) and I had the trip planned for a month or so but neither of us could get excited about another trip to the...

    First time whitewater kayaking

    Last weekend I took a whitewater kayaking class on the Rio Grande Racecourse, near Pilar, NM. It was a BLAST! My wife and I had previously kayaked at Lake Powell. In order to get the boats I wanted for Powell trip I had to buy one, which ostensibly was to be my wife's. With a kayak sitting in my...

    Experimenting with off camera flash

    A couple of years ago I got a speedlight to mount in the hotshoe of my digital camera. This got a lot of use as fill light for backlit daytime photos and I was pretty happy with the results. It gave me detail in shadow areas that would otherwise be underexposed. Unfortunately, mounting a...

    Time lapse video: night sky over Lake Powell

    One of the things I like the most about getting out in the backcountry is the spectacular stargazing. Unfortunately out of 3 weeks or so of camping I did this year most of the nights were either cloudy or washed out by the moon. Not so for a 3 dayer to Glen Canyon a couple of weekends ago. It...
