Ian

You had a sat phone and you didn't call me! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Although...I guess I didn't call you from Kenya with my sat phone either.

Re: Beginning to gear-up for Colorado

Yes, Dave. I am out there....sulking. Here I wrote all about my doggin trip and you didn't post on it. So to you I say...carry a 17 lb rifle!!!!! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Seriously, we talked about a LW 308, what about a 06 or maybe a 7 WSM. A little more punch but not as much recoil as a 300...or a 338-06? I don't know... lots of ideas....

Re: Beginning to gear-up for Colorado

Len,
There was a bunch of sat-phones in our camp, one in the boat, one in each guide's pack etc. The Brunton solar stuff is the answer for keeping the batteries going, I used both the roll-up solar panel and the one that looks like a three-fold case.

Brunton is making some very nice camping stuff, you have to see it to believe how light and well designed it is. Good binocs too, used their Epochs on this trip. Only binocs I kow of that come in their own Pelican case. Optics give the Euros a real run - no idea who is making them but they are good.
