Doc,

This wasn't you on the Colbert Show, was it? Or maybe LDF?

agreed 100%. Eddie98 & I are heading west this summer...I'm wondering if the things I see will even compare to yours and LDF's shots. Amazing.

Dr. and LDF,

I've been following this thread for several months. Between working full-time and taking college classes, etc. it's taken me this long just to catch up. I include the above picture because I just found it so breathtaking. I pulled it for my desktop on the big monitor at work (I hope you don't mind) and I've had several people admire it and state how it looks more like an oil painting than a photograph. It truly is an excellent shot.

I've enjoyed this report immensely. Thank you so much for all the trouble you go to in order to share all this with us. I'm a pavement dweller myself (Victory Kingpin) as my poor back couldn't take unimproved roads and I can't lift more than 30 lbs. after the surgery I had a couple years back, but "riding along" with the two of you has been a close second. Thanks!

labels?

MTrider, assuming that image is from a City Nav or other MapSource file, I'd sure like to know how you do those placename labels. Could you please explain?

1,000 thanks.

This is all F800GS navigable, but was occasionally challanging.

DR & LDF,
Welcome back to Nevada. It has been a dry winter and there should not be much to slow you down. Just ignore that crap about eastern Oregon getting snow, nobody got appreciable snow. RenoDeano was at Fields Station 3 weeks ago and they had gas.

You are riding right past two choice hot springs, well, a lot more than two but these are right on your route; as in on the same road... I don't know about the water chemistry at Trego Hot Springs, but it is also called frog hot springs and if it doesn't kill an amphibian you are probably good to go. Lots of trees there too, a great place to kick back. I have seen lab data for Leach Hot Springs and all I will say is "I would drink it if that were all there was." Don't know about bacterial bugs though. The 105 degree pool (4 ft deep) at Leach Hot Springs is fed by springs that range from 130 F to 192 F, so you are probably good to go there too.

NAD83, UTM Zone 11 Meter
Trego Hot Springs: 321350E 4515582N
Leach Hot Springs: 444927E 4494984N
The gas station between them is Mill City; but with your recon skills, you probably knew that already. Have a most awesome adventure.

crap. dragged and dropped a screen cap and it did not stick... double crap ... just read that image attachment has been turned off as of January.

Yes, it is a mapsourse file. I pull the screen shot into a program called Snag It and then output a JPG to publish.

http://www.techsmith.com/snagit.html

The full version is $45 for private individules.

Looks Like;

You two are just traveling in a large Loop, instead of covering a large distance......

I get it.....you're trying to enjoy a large amount of scenery, right? I am so envious; have a GREAT Trip......

I Look forward to the report!!!!

Fourth would maybe be how to splint/immobilize, but even that's not really critical, unless you've got to move before EMS arrives. Everything else is gravy -- clean water to drink and wash out wounds, dressings, antimicrobial ointment, a big needle to decompress a tension pneumothorax, benadryl for an allergic reaction, something for pain. When you get right down to it, it's not much. #'s 1 & 2 above are the big impact items.
I know this post is nearly a year old, and someone may have said something similar, but oh, well, I guess.

1) This post is where I am in the RR, and it's flippin' awesome. I don't ride dirt, but ya'll make me wish I did.
2) I'm a medic in the US Army. The kit you've described? That's what I would pack, and trauma is basically all I do. So many other things to know and watch for, but not much you can do in the grass with minimal help, huh?
