I know, maybe a bit (or a lot) excessive, but it's worth asking for those willing to tempt the fates of winter in the ditch. Thoughts.
Why not? Maybe you could lash it to your ATV that doubles as a 100KW generator, that way your disco balls will spin at the right speed during your dance contests....... just because you CAN have fires doesn't mean you're supposed to deforest the canyon. Do HUGE chainsaws serve the same purpose as HUGE pickup trucks????Can I bring my HUGE chainsaw on the grand?
Bring a Dura Flame log for every night. Definitely worth it as they burn for 3+ hours and don't make bad fumes, especially in an open fire pan. Essentially they are made of sawdust pressed together with wax (I think). A whole trip's worth will fit into a big dry bag.
As of September, there was a ton of driftwood at the South Canyon camp. I think it is South, the one right above Vasey's.
you have any good advice for anything special to bring that time of yr. this will be my first winter trip in the grand this yr. launch jan 17th, solar power for a camera or ipod? big ass army tent? ok I got the bow saw thats great to know about and to bring a little wood huh... will you leave some wood behind for my trip........ I have a great lead on a 12'x14' tent for rental w/ stove I thaught this would be good for crappy weather when cooking and a place for everyone to hang out in if its absolutly horrible, my only deciding factor is enough space in the rafts.. and room for it at camps. also there is one person still without a dry suit do you know of any rental places in Flagg. thanksA small folding hand saw is all I brought last January. I landed another launch this January 12 and I am going to bring one big dry bag of split Juniper from home to help with those camps when it is pouring down rain and the camp is scarce of good wood. I own a dozen chainsaws but even if it were legal to bring one down in the winter, it wouldn't be necessary. Enjoy your trip!
