Ahhh yes John. That makes more sense. I know the meadow well. It's a beautiful area, but well used. If you head up the road further, there are also some great "stealthy" spots, but they take a little reconnaissance to find.

I don't know where Google Maps gets the name Lost Creek Road. It's more commonly called, and signed, "Pole Creek Road". We were up there snowshoeing a few weeks ago.

Ice Man,
In Google Earth, you can change the coordinate system under: Tools - Options. I don't think we've established a standardized coordinate system for AirForums. I post stuff in Decimal Degrees because that's what I've seen most people do here. However, I have to convert my stuff to get to that because I usually use UTM's (Universal Transverse Mercator). I do GIS stuff at work, and our stuff is all UTM's. Of coarse none of this really matters. It'll all get you to the same place.

There are lots of coordinate converters on the internet that'll get you whatever you like. Just Google: Coordinate Converter.

Yep, I didn't recall the sign saying Lost Cabin Rd either. If you follow the road far enough it then changes to Pole Creek Rd for awhile and back to Lost Cabin later on. The meadow is well used by OHV types but we found them to be well behaved. When we go back we'll look for another spot a bit stealthier. There is no shortage of great spots in the area.

John

Ten day Boondocking Dream trip

Ray, Brent, Maggie,
Any chance in tagging along with your group for this 2017 trip?
We live in the Boston area are excited about traveling "out west"!
We have solar and two Honda 2000's and would be able to contribute
to the "Power Grid"

Brent can take my locations, place them on a map and get mileages already for the Wyoming Adventure. A magician with a computer.

This information will be on a SECURE government server in Brent's garage for added security, do not ask for a copy.

Colorado High Country will be not be any different in 2017 with information given over time. There is enough Colorado for three separate Adventures, so expect more of this to follow over time. When the time comes, the Airforum is the source of information and binds all of this stuff together.

Annie & Bob: Post onto the 2017 High Country Colorado thread your interest in attending. If there are enough bold individuals interested, there is a good chance of two Adventures of Ten Days, each. You may want to report your trip from Boston... that should be a good one.

Nancy and I are now... leaving Nevada a couple weeks earlier than "planned" to ready ourselves for a fun and exciting Summer. I expect THREE High Country Colorado Adventures, as Colorado like Wyoming... is BIG. IF you flatten Colorado...it is the size of Texas. Wyoming... the same, but for a different kind of experience.

Right-- good catch!

In our younger years we also backpacked into Virgin Spring on the San Rafael River and Saddle Horse Canyon (this one 3x-- including one memorable flash flood experience) but now we are old, sedentary, and have an Airstream.

Ha! I think my days of "slot canyon with a chance of flash flood" days might be over as well. There are still some pretty amazing canyons in S. Utah with little flash flood possibility. Some wonderful hiking in Grand Staircase Monument.

P.S. Hi Lucius and Danielle. We met you at Alumaflamingo last year!
Lucius and Danielle: we're Alexa and Jim

Ray: is there another thread I need to be looking for?

Thanks!

If you guys are ever in the SW, let me know. I'm working on a documentary photography project between San Diego, Tuscon, Santa Fe area for the next 18 months or so...

Lots of boondocking planned.

Since I've been a car-camping boondocker for years, having an AS is a dream come true.

Heading to Phoenix from LA tomorrow...I'll boondock somewhere I'm sure.
