    I was looking at Schamberger's book last night. He has one image, of a small headstone. The verbiage alludes there is little left. That was in the late 60s to 1971, when the book was published. So it may be very difficult to find anything.

    Cemetery marked on topo map. Thanks for the pdf, Chris. I have it on my computer, now I can curl up by the fire with a bourbon and my iPad and enjoy!

    Looking at the Google maps satellite view I see some patterns along the lower north slope of the small notch it sits in. There is one short trail and what appears to be a fenceline running north and south. At the end of the two track looks to be something, like the size of those 5’ stone monuments with E Clampus Vitis plaques and in such a spot that it doesn’t look natural to me. Though it could very well be a boulder that rolled down from above in the earthquake in the ‘50s.

    Awesome.. I was out there a while back, salvaged the remnants of a cotton sample bag that had 'wonder' and some numbers stamped on it. Figured it was going to rot away anyway.. I'll be back this summer, explore deeper up into the hills and the like see if there's anything interesting.

    Winches

    Until gravity wins and you end up in a hole that wasn't there 500 milliseconds ago. Then the winch is pretty much non-optional.

    Winches

    I've never been stuck that a shovel and jack couldn't get me out. A winch can certainly be convenient. I tend to turn around before the going gets tough enough that I think a winch would be handy.. then come back on my motorcycle where a winch wouldn't be much use anyway.

    Winches

    It think it really depends on the vehicle you have if you need a winch or not for me I have never gotten stuck I have an ATV so it's very rare for me to get stuck but I still carry a shovel just in case I see people out in the desert going offroading without any kind of winch or shovel etc and that's plain stupid because if they do get stuck what's going to happen ?? there's no cell service and it's very rare to see another person on the trails so there basically screwed.

    Never owned a winch. I just don’t get stuck in the first place ...

    Boot recommendations

    The subject has been touched on in various threads here. Not much follow up.. and considering how important a good foot covering is when exploring....and I'm probably going to be buying a new pair this year. My usage is both hiking and motorcycling. Need at least a modest heel, around 8" height with fairly stiff/tough uppers. I can also suffer from swamp foot, so something that breathes is nice. I'm leaning towards these Danner gritstone 8" I don't think they'll breath much though.. i might have to look for something in a mix of materials vs. all leather. However my current carolina work boots are all leather and seem to keep my feet plenty dry so maybe a quality liner is the key?

    Boot recommendations

    That 'gritstone' model is plain toe. I'm not against steel toe but not really looking for it either... I think they have composite and maybe alloy toes as well..

    Boot recommendations

    Those are better than both of my boots. The only waterproof pair is not steel toe and the other pair only lasted three years before they got warped. It's near the point that I can't milk them anymore and have to buy a new pair. They have size 14. So my size 13 1/2 clown feet should not be a problem.
