Hi Dave, I think I'm NEVER gonna live that wrap down. You are the second person this week to bring that Shit Pole incident up!
The other was aren't you the one who wraped on that pole! Hey when I F*ck up I do it memorably!
I can laugh about that shit show now. Yes finally got all my gear replaced with good gear. Took a while and have been back at it. Doing West Water next week.
At least I can't hit a shit pole there!
@ Avatard - not a chance in hell am I giving up this spot! Nice try!
Thanks for all these suggestions. I wish I still had the AA battery camera. The cost of the batteries is high. The battery charger is either car lighter plug or electrical. Neither camera charges via USB, I should see if there is a conversion. I'm gonna look into these ideas and figure out what makes sense. Keep them coming. I like the idea of the inverter or the UPS.
Those that used the solar panel, how did you get enough day light in the canyon? Were you charging on the boat. Part of the problem I had was by the time we got to camp the canyon was shady often, so other than lay over days, I didn't get enough sun. Do the newer panels charge faster?
