Sorry for the delay in getting back - I had to work overtime last week and was beat... needed today to recuperate!
Nice pics Dusty!
Well, I ended up biting the bullet and getting the Zumo 660. I found that, power cord issues aside, It is very similar to my old 2720 and a lot more user friendly for me... tracks and mp3's are loaded.
I called Kernville USFS yesterday for info and left my number, haven't heard yet... but if you've been watching the news, it ain't looking good.
like the idea of Mammoth area, and the 20th will work for me.
I can leave Thursday and stick around Monday too. As far as camping, I remember a nice staging area just north of town and another just north of Mammoth turn-off along the 395 (Deadman's Pass).
Nitro - are you in?
I was able to cobble together all the tracks I have for Mammoth area - including a really cool 120 mile loop that goes up to Bodie on the west side of Mono and comes back along the east side (red route
). And a clockwise loop route north of town (blue route
). See attached - you can load them in Google Earth to get a better look.
