SPOT should really add a "NEED WATER" button. And that fat blue line, that's a river, right? Looks like it forks near the top. Which do I take? :-k Is the purple one safe to drink?
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

What about a water delivery service ...

"Four hikers in a remote part of the canyon pushed the emergency help button on their SPOT satellite tracking device. When rangers helicoptered in the next day, the hikers declined evacuation, saying they were worried about running short of water. The next day the hikers pushed the button again. Another copter team arrived, to hear the complaint that the water the men had “tasted salty.” On the third day, ...

I'll start working on the "Water Access and Quality (WAQ)" DB after I'm done with the "best fishin' spots" DB.

Have we learned nothing from Bear Grylls? If you run out of water, just look for whatever goat/bear/elk/marmot/pika droppings you can find, and squeeze the moisture out of it.
As long as I see mountain goats near the trail, I know I won't be dehydrating any time soon. =P~

I have a hard time imagining what a winter fish icon should look like.

But I'll work on it.

It's a little rough but I could polish it up nicely.

I'd be interested in locations for gold and silver deposits, and mushrooms.
