Re: Sandy River Canyon (upstream from PCT)

It takes some nerve to set out for a route like that! This leads me to wonder: have you attempted to get to McNeil/Muddy Fork falls?

We spend the night in a sort of creepy Airbnb in Wenatchee—the bottom of some dude’s swanky house
Probably not what you were expecting someone to comment on, but whatever, why was this "sort of creepy?"

Re: Lolo Pass Road

Driving east from the PCT trailhead old NF-18 is now signed: Road Closed 1 mile ahead due to storm damage. The gates on both ends are open and the ditch is still easily passed in a 4x4 however. It does continue to erode and I suspect it may be impassable after spring melt-out.

Re: Missing hiker on the Timberline Trail

Not that anyone asked my opinion on this sad matter but I don't find it surprising. They say getting lost starts with a false assumption. It can be hard to correct that even if one is thinking clearly, and if one is also hypothermic it may be impossible, with judgement too impaired to recognize the ...

Re: Gifford Pinchot Road 4109 to Silver Star Trailhead

I think this is a great idea and I wish you luck with the project. Unfortunately I am unsuited to that kind of work. The old saying "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission" comes to mind, and I think the FS would have to be jerks to punish you for improving an existing, open, an...

Re: Best Trails for finding mushrooms

I have never gathered wild mushrooms and it seems really hard to get started. I wouldn't try it without careful guidance, and those with enough experience to provide that are so clammed up! :|

Re: gpsfly.org gone

Can you attach files to private messages? I didn't think so. A simple attachment here isn't too much mess, is it?

Re: gpsfly.org gone

I shouldn't be surprised that someone else here thought of this too. Incidentally I have 7,240 tracks, along with the HTML page for 7,168 of them, which I believe has the author/description embedded. I have the entire thing down to 193MB with the use of 7-zip, and I could probably take it down a lit...
