    Shaver Lake Dispersed Camping

    Yes, I was there last week. There were a couple of spaces available for Friday night at Camp Edison so we grabbed one. There are lots of spots along the road into Dinkey Creek but most of them were taken by large groups with RVs and trailers for their crawlers and other toys. Once you get...

    Shaver Lake Dispersed Camping

    Yes, you are correct. We went to the top of Bald Mt. on Saturday and talked to the ranger there. They are still working on many of the other trails and should be open soon. We had to go up and back from Dinkey Creek because the north route was still closed. The trail was super busy due to it...

    Shaver Lake Dispersed Camping

    Yes, we went to the top last year during the OB event. I wasn't sure if that is all BLM land and camping is allowed. Great views but it was partially clouded/fogged in, windy and chilly. I heard most of the snow is gone and it should be good this weekend.

    Shaver Lake Dispersed Camping

    I was wondering if there are any recommended trails near Shaver Lake that have nice dispersed camping opportunities. I wanted to take some newbies down and thought we’d spend the first night at Camp Edison then find some more remote camping for a night or two depending on how they do. Are any...

    Sorry if I missed it, but what time are you targeting?

    Ditch lights, Amber or white?

    I have the white with the yellow covers. I would say the covers hold condensation and it reduces the amount of light output significantly if you don’t remove the covers and clear the condensation.

    iPad Mini or iPad

    I bought the new 10.5 Air last week. My RAM mounts were supposed to ship on Tuesday and would have been here by now but they shipped yesterday and will arrive tomorrow about 6 hours after I leave for a 4 day Death Valley trip. Figures................

    Sorry, I meant iPad pro is almost the same dimensions as the Air.

    iPad Mini or iPad

    I'm still up in the air between the Mini 5 and splurging on the 11" Pro which is almost the same dimensions as the regular iPad. I have all the RAM mounts coming next week so I have to decide soon.

    Friday Night HAM Radio NET

    I happened to be in Phoenix yesterday on business and stopped by the HRO location there. They just got a shipment of FTM-400s so I picked one up. I think they sold out again during the time I was in the store. Now I need to get an antenna and mount and get it installed!

    Yaesu FTM-400XDR vs Kenwood D710G

    I've been researching this decision but, due to my limited experience, can't seem to come to a conclusion. I live in the Bay Area and my trips are West Coast centric. I know the Yaesu is $100 cheaper on sale right now, but is also on backorder and I'm not too concerned about the price...

    HAM Radio Call Sign Check-In Thread

    KN6AET - Todd checking in from San Jose, CA. Just got my license last week. Still need a radio. Considering the Kenwood 710G or the Yaesu FTM 400 since I am interested in APRS. I , too, am a bit overwhelmed with figuring out how to get started.

    Bed Racks

    I bought a flush mount from 589 Fab to hold me over since it was low cost and I needed something for some upcoming trips. I am still planning to get the Relentless modular rack when it becomes available. I do like the 589 in that the RTT is tucked flush/below the roof so great aero and lower...

    5lb vs 10lb Propane Bottle

    Does anyone have any recommendations on propane bottle sizes? I'm running a pickup with modular 12" bed rack so I could mount it in the rear corner of the bed (with an AT Overland mount) and feed my 2 burner stove and, when needed, a heater for the RTT. I was thinking there may be a way to...
