    US West Bodie Ghost Town and Cooper Mountain- Eastern Sierras

    I came over 108 yesterday after some days at Cerro Gordo, Pleasant Valley dam Campground, Alabama Hills etc and I somehow fried my brakes halfway across. Right front stopped engaging. Smelled some brakes, slowed down to take it easy but too late, felt like rotors warped or pads stopped engaging...

    BaseMaps app

    Anyone play around with BaseMap? Super cool IMO after a few hours for playing around today. Many layers and 3D options. Hunting and fishing overlays etc as well. I paid $30 for the Pro version for a year subscription. Looking forward to using it more.

    Trailsoffroad.com has a new feature with Gaia GPS

    It’s awesome. I added everything to my GAIA so I don’t have to go back and forth every trip and find something

    Too Much Information will destroy what we do.

    I use my Gaia to plot coordinates on things I find from old maps like mines, struck tires, cabins etc I scour the internet for and Google earth. So I have some interesting waypoints. CA has over 70,000 mines alone. Most of the coordinates can be found online. I don’t really use it as road map...

    Garmin Overlander

    I run a combination of the Overlander and Gaia on a IPad with a side of InReach bluetoothed to the IPad if I need GPS overlay. I also use the Eathrmate map and usually upload GPX/KML/KMZ files to all and sync. And then I run the ZOLEO for text messaging when out of mobile service areas through...

    Death Valley

    Thank you for this! Headed out in a couple weeks. Do you know if any dispersed sites have steel fire rings? Or is that only for developed sites? I know you cant have wood fires unless it has the steel ring from what I can see. Also is there an emergency HAM frq in that area?

    Gaia/Garmin Overlander

    yes, I run both as well. I find the details better on Garmin with more waypoint info and not just a flag when you upload GPX files etc.. They compliment each other.
