 MAPS:
      Its been a long time since Ive been out in the back country, last time Ive went we didnt have cell towers. Just had our compass and our piece together a local topographic maps, then laminate all them in one section. Now the the internet and cell towers and smartphones are the norm. GPU's, Smartphones are nice and all, but where Im going, there are no roads, ok Im kidding some roads and some trails, but not cell towers.  I dont feel like packing lbs of extra battery either.
      So, whats my best option or options here for maps?

    Hey, maybe you will run into that Mick Dodge fellow.....or bigfoot. I really enjoy camping and fishing. Not much of a hiker in my later years. I bet it will be beautiful scenery.

    Camping pro tip make coffee at night and put it in a thermos. It should stay hot over night even in an old thermos and really makes waking up and making breakfast a lot happier in the morning to have a warm cup of coffee. Also plan to get lost I know it sounds silly but it does happen and having a plan for it can make a difference. Mostly what direction to travel to find a road or a river since if you find one of those you will find civilization. Also remember to bring water to kill any fire you start and then enough to pour over the fire 10 minutes later to make sure it's out since it's fire season.
     
    Also keep in mind fishing is a great camping activity depending on the river you could get bass, salmon, trout or steelhead. Great thing about Oregon is you are within 2 hours from about any landscape type on earth so keep that in mind. You can camp in snow, forests or sand dunes, beach, or desert  all within just a couple hours. If you haven't been Crater Lake is worth going to and has a lot of trails around it.

    Really not all that bad unless you start putting 700gr rounds through it. If nothing else, the noise is always interesting.

    Jerry Miculek had enough after 8 shots. Slow motion at 1:52 is very impressive.

    Smith and Wesson make good guns! Me and the boyfriend have two. He open carries and conceals his m&p 40 cal and I carry a bodyguard 380. Fun to shoot indoors and out!!

    Have you been going out doors this summer Knight? I have been fishing a lot this summer and just chilling at my local lakes and ponds "swimming"(I cant swim but still fun to get in the shallow end lol). Also I go on a hike every now and then when its super hot. I climbed a tree the other day and took a 45min power nap in it. I honestly can say these past three months I have been REALLY HAPPY going out in the sunshine.

    Been in Central Oregon a month now. Havent had much free time for outdoors yet, just got a job "Prep Cook" a few weeks ago in Bend "Hour drive" to the In-laws sucks, but its free rent for the summer "House sitting" Dad just retired, and Mom/Dad went gold panning in East Oregon for the summer.  Theres all kinds of trails, back roads, lakes, camping right in your backyard here, I cant wait......
     
     Looks like September, wife and I can start getting outdoors, we'll be seeing 100F temps here in the high desert this weekend.

    That's how it's been out in Utah. 100F while trying to camp/hike is painful. Fortunately there's this trail nearby that's shaded by trees almost the entire way.

    NICE!! The 2.0 trigger has fixed alot of the complaints that peeps had. Still no APEX trigger but I love it as is. They took away the "self  loading" feature were it drops the slide thats locked back when you insert a new mag. Well I would not say it was an actual feature but thats what happened once you inserted your mag in really hard though.  I bought S&W's new AR 2.0 MP15. Got to say I LOVE IT! But yeah the only complaint my fat freind has with his M&P 9mm 2.0 is that the new grip texture is too rough on his love handles when carried IWB.

    The metro Boise area sucked eggs, my asthma went from OK to Crap, but out in the mountains was fine.  Being in Central Oregon has been a god-send, other than keeping hydrated and no sodas your fine.  Too bad you cant aford to live on the land anymores, like the old days.....

    Well I went fishing again today. Not too shabby. Got this 5 pounder bass. At least its something. I though I was going to leave empty handed today. But even if I did, just being outside and enjoying the sunshine is rewarding enough.

    Thanks! Too bad I did not catch anything today. Well I also was not out there for that long anyways because the weather was poor.

    So Knight have you at least done anything yet? Well hopefully you have. Summer is almost over brother. We have about a month and two weeks left before fall. Got to get out there man and stimulate your mind with some good outdoors, nature, and sunshine.

    buy yourself a cheap lightweight portable solar charger and find away to attach it on outside your pack
    (make sure the cable plugs actually fit and work)

    Went fishing again today and caught these two bass fish. It took awhile of course. Both are not as big as that one in my recent pic on this thread. But hey at least its something instead of nothing. 
     
    Here is one of them still on the hook.

     
     
    And here are both on a plate that I was preparing to season and cook for my father to eat. Boy let me tell yall, he was REALLY excited to eat them. Its been a while since he had fresh caught fish, especially bass. Just watching him eat with joy and happiness felt so rewarding.

    that last post, was super cool
     
    my dad absolutely loved fishing.
    we used to go salt water, so caught some monsters.
    he came down with alzheimers.
    every so often would mention fishing,
    but last time we went, he's drift off from it.
     
    in the future, you'll come back to that memory
