that's awesme! i posted this on Bears thread but:
(talking about harlan)i was thinking it would be awesome to do it down there. i know the area kinda well and know the mountains even better and my family is from and lives down there. i was thinking for a summer trip get some money or donations from people and give it to my family in advance and have them go throughout the mountains and place it, logging their location with each "treasure"

One of the Offroad Magazines used to do a geocaching type game and hide the coordinates in various places in the magazine. Some were pretty hard to find. Then you put them together to find the location. It was a national thing so most of them were too far away to get but they had pretty awesome prizes for the first person to find it (like winches and lights etc). Then they randomly stopped doing it. That was the only reason we subscribed to them. :\
The girlfriend and I searched some local ones out for a couple weeks and then kinda got over it. It was good for a bit but I think it would definitely be more fun to do somewhere away from home. We have about as many finds as showstop, without all those zeros, but zeros, by definition, are worthless anyway!
Can someone give me pointers on where to go tomorrow at Rowher Flats? I’d like to make my way up to Bouquet but I’ll be alone in the 4Runner. Just tires and sliders. I need a detailed trails map if anyone can offer one.
