Sometimes if you get a good swarm around your head, you can walk over to a companion, bow down real close to them, and transfer the swarm to their head.

Assuming that this is a paddle trip, if...

Thanks again, Jeff. It sounds like the planned replacement bridge for Mosquito Creek hasn't yet been constructed?

The more I compare the two the more I think I'm leaning towards the 65S. The added memory and built-in battery of the 66SR would be nice but a lot of the added cost also appears to be justified by...

Hmmmm.... I just noticed the 65S, which has multiband technology yet is $100 cheaper than the 66SR. It's also got slightly more limited space (5000 pts vs. 10000 pts, 200 tracks vs. 250 tracks) but...

I've been using older-generation GPS units for years without complaint. However, I'm also starting to feel extremely limited by the storage space (or lack thereof) on older GPS models- 1,000 points...

Yeah, Callahan Brook is neat. On one of my trips through there I spent a little bit of time poking around upstream of the crossing. Seemed like maybe there was a faint herd path along the north...

Thanks, Jeff.

I should be able to grab my copy of the Quehanna Trail Guidebook this weekend; I'll probably spend next week pouring through it.

It's not so much that the forest gets "thick." There's a few brushy spots but generally it's not too bad in this regard.

Rather, it's just that the trail simply doesn't exist in spots. In...
