    Make sure your tire pressure is optimal

    Hot roads

    also batteries fail more in summer than winter

    my exactly 5 year old lawn tractor battery died a week ago from heat

    Despite my constant usage of a Battery Tender

    Or perhaps because of that.

    My practice 40 years

    Modern batteries are designed to fail

    I replace a car battery at 5 years regardless

    Tires age also, check the date of creation before buying any tire

    Before auto tire sensors that also fail, I checked my tires several ways

    Sabotage also occurs

    often

    I have made reservations to go backpacking in the redwoods June 6 to the 10th. Just me and my cute little 5x7. If I survive the hike, I have another planned for the first week or so of July (but a longer crazier hike in rougher country, so perhaps just the Rollei or the 4x5).

    So I should be here in civilization when you pass through.

    Thanks Darr! Vaughn, I'll message you when I'm out in CA. Not sure my schedule past about June 14.

    I just booked a campsite Fri June 10 and Sat June 11 just outside Yosemite's East gate. There's a ton of first-come-first-serve sites but since I found the Fri/Sat opening I figured I'd rather be safe than sorry. June Lake area.

    Also Death Valley is forecast now to be at 113 F when I'm passing through .

    but it's Dry heat

    carry a lot of water and drink it

    Burning Man requires 1 gallon water per person per day

    I will never go BM again

    I've got a 6-gallon tank, plus two more gallons in jugs. I bought some tubing and can actually sip water out of the 6-gal tank from the front seat, or siphon it as needed for my water bottles. The 6-gal tanks are used as weights for festivals sometimes.

    I don't plan to be out in DV past 7 or 8am. I wish I could do more but I guess I missed the balmy 80 degree days this past week. I found a cool AirBnB just outside of the park, really cheap, will have to come back with my wife in the future (perhaps a bit earlier in spring).

    I will spend the rest of the day around Mono Lake.
