    Camp Muir!

    Camp Muir is usually just a grind up with hiking poles. But, it does happen. That one time in high winds it was good going up but coming back down that highest section had turned to hard glaze ice and even with the ice axe (no crampons) it was a nasty bit to descend. Not that common but just saying always be ready, even for Muir.

    I've done it before in high winds (50-60mph) and low temps. Just be prepared with wind protection and possibility of glaze ice. Ice axe highly recommended, and crampons would be best, but just be careful and descend if you do run into glaze ice without those items.

    Oops! Looks like I can't make it after all. Family obligations and a trip to prepare for. Enjoy the hike. It should be good this time of year.

    June 23rd? Hey I'm in! I'd love to do this again.

  6. Cleared my cache and it was still there. Hit the refresh and now it is fine.
  7. I saw your post. Amazing how it has melted out in 24 days!! I love the photo of your daughter sleeping on the rim on google+
  8. Went up Pilchuck today and replaced the cache with a new ammo can. The trail is snow free until you get close to the open north slope. Probably about 1 1/4 mile into the hike or so. Once on the ridge about 50% of the trail to the lookout has snow on it, maybe a bit more. Treking poles are a plus. Weather was great on top. A mix of sun and blowing fog above the cloud layer. No one up there but me.

  10. I don't even want to say! Totally disgusting!

    I'd love to do Muir again and with company it would even be better. Problem is getting an odd day off from work. I'm just on a week vacation now. I'll see if there is some way I can get a saturday off though, but it is unlikely.
  12. Yes they are! Congratulations!
  13. Slow but steady One of your's was my first find. It took years but I finally passed you. Thanks for all that you added to this sport. ...And a whimper. Yeah, we're not very far apart are we? On finds, posts, or start date.

    I think you can do it here although it looks like they don't have the latest one up. http://garminmontana.wikispaces.com/Software+Versions

    The other night I disconnected the cradle power cable from the cigarette lighter socket and it still drain the unit so it must be in the cradle.

    Opps. Had a white screen today in the cradle on start-up. When left in the cradle and off the unit's battery drains for some reason. I wonder if the crashes have anything to do with this.

    So far it seems the mount problem is fixed. No crashes. Thanks Garmin

    Downloaded it. We'll see if it is a fix.
  19. You can use your forest pass at Johnston Ridge.

    Fixing the mount problem would be good.
  21. Just to warn you! If you want to do a St Helens climb you need to get your permit NOW! The calender fills in fast! I just grabbed a couple of the last ones for July 1. Most weekends are already taken around that period.

    I'm also still having the auto cradle problem where it does not power back on and crashes in the cradle. Also a problem with the wireless sharing to another unit, it selects caches that are far away instead of the closest and assigns a rediculous milage to them like 7961 miles away. You have to try 5 or 6 times before the nearest caches come up.
  23. 1)Still having crash issues wioth the Montana 650t Soft version 3.80 in the automotive cradle. Power off, won't power back on. You have to hold on button down till you are past the white screen and then put it back on the cradle and it will come up. 2) "share Wireless" to my other unit, it will come up with geocaches that are far from where I am at instead of the closest and assign them distance of 7691 miles away ( they are not that far) it will take maybe 4 or 5 re-tries before I can tranfer the closest geocache.

    I think changing the HIGHLIGHT color does that.
