I share hangar space with the Brits when they're out here and recently they've been using water cans for load weight instead of sand. Less intrusive and easier to fill.

Your Escape should do just fine. The road is in fine shape. The alluvium at the bottom is a little rough but if you take it slow you'll do OK.

Your choices will likely be influenced by the towing capacity of your tow vehicle. That will at least give you the weight class of the vehicle. Your search will begin there.

There is the same type of set-up for binoculars at Cabela's. You could look there.

Check your fire extinguisher for service and pressure. Every once in awhile turn it over and tap it with a rubber mallet to prevent the drychem powder from packing into a solid. You DO have a fire extinguisher, don't you?

You can rent Subaru Outbacks, and Jeep Libertys at Dollar. Avis has Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos. National has a Jeep Commander and Nissan Muranos.

During the New Year's '06 blizzard which left 72" of new snow at Mammoth proper, I attempted to snowshoe that ridge. Attempted. The wind was blowing upwards of 100mph across the ridge line and I made it about 3/4 a mile before I was throughly chilled to the bone. I'd love to do that some sunny summ...

I read a story in the Reader's Digest and then heard a story from an old desert rat wherein electric shock was used to treat venomous bites. The Reader's Digest story came from the marketin...

I've never even met someone who has actually met their representative outside of a press-the-meat type event. Has any...

That reminds me of a Geocache I once found, quite ingenious really. The cache was a "micro" and the container was attached by a keychain to the ignition key which was in the ignition of an old abandoned car, such as the one in your photo. After too much time hunting for the thing, I finally found it...
