    Getting to Mount / Washington without a mudder vehicle or dirtbike?

    :D Thankfully the SAR officers stressed a map and compass (essential gear) for our kits. GPS devices were optional, their advantage being a faster way to determine the coordinates. In fact our team captain told me I failed the bushwhacking exercise because I never took out my map and compass...

    Getting to Mount / Washington without a mudder vehicle or dirtbike?

    @Boyd: Now I'm scratching my head. Why in the world were the external antenna types recommended? The only other reasons coming to mind may be the map types available, buttons on the device or larger screen size since the internal capabilities were the same. Difficult to remember the details from...

    Getting to Mount / Washington without a mudder vehicle or dirtbike?

    I concur. The chipset should be the important component. Years ago when I volunteered for the New Jersey Search & Rescue teams a gear list was distributed to us. I'm almost certain we were told that the best GPS devices to own for SAR missions were the units with a MGRS datum selection for...

    Getting to Mount / Washington without a mudder vehicle or dirtbike?

    Getting to Mount / Washington without a mudder vehicle or dirtbike?

    Possible solution - Avenza Maps (PDF). During a 2 overnight backpacking trip in the Dolly Sods Wilderness in WV the Avenza Maps mobile phone app kept us on track when signal was lost. The PDF map was download at home then referenced several times while on the trails. The arrow icon on the lower...

    Still Trying To Solve Issues With My Car One Year Later

    A long long long time ago I would take my car to a mile stretch of smooth roadway rarely traveled. At a speed of close to 60 MPH or higher I would shift the transmission into neutral. If the vibration or noise stopped then the drive train was suspect. If the vibration or noise continued, then...
