  1. Check out these trail listings (with GPX tracks) around Kingman and Lake Havasu. I've never heard of many of them like Tyro Mine, Devil's Dip Parallel, McGuffie Cabin, Cerbat Crest? Maybe some candidates for the proposed winter run in that area? https://www.jeeptheusa.com/kingman-jeep-trails.html https://www.jeeptheusa.com/lake-havasu---parker-jeep-trails.html
  2. Thanks for leading that George and Diane. That is a fun trail day or night!
  3. Picture thread started: https://offroadpassport.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5714 Thanks.
  4. I don't have any pictures, but I though I would kick off the thread anyway. I just wanted to say thanks to theksmith and Chris and Sarah for mounting a search and rescue mission to find me! It goes back to this spring when I ran this trail with theksmith and George and Diane. I was recording the track when my GPS overheated. When I got back home I got the bright idea to just complete the track using Google earth. Unfortunately, what looked like a clear route that I had mapped out through the second creek crossing was actually completely blocked off by overgrown trees and vegetation. I was no more than 1/4 mile from the group and we could communicate on the cb, but out of site and cutoff nevertheless. I was finally able crawl back up the two foot ledge I dropped off earlier to get down into the creek. Chris and Sarah were then able to find me. The ksmith said that my GPS navigation license is suspended until further notice!
  5. I have one but don't recall the brand, however there are tons of options with reviews on Amazon..... https://www.amazon.com/s?k=recovery+straps&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
  6. Awesome! Thanks to George, Diane, and Kristoffer for all their effort and planning!
  7. I would head over to REI and ask them for help and check some out, even if you don't buy there. I do think bags are something where you don't want to try and save a few dollars since they are so vital, but that is just me. Here is a guide to insulation and a link to a North Face bag. I would just make sure you can return for free if you don't like......good luck! https://www.bigskyfishing.com/camping/sleeping-bag-insulation/#synthetic https://www.als.com/Product.aspx?pf_id=northc-s-bag_wasatch_0-18&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o22&scid=scplp47463&sc_intid=47463&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiaP40JSP3wIVpB-tBh3r4AuTEAkYFiABEgIT__D_BwE
