RE: New Q And A with FF on MW
@anyone - 1600 miles at 35 mph for 4 days equates to almost 12 hrs of actual driving per day. That does NOT even count the breaks for meals & peepee. Add in water times & store-shopping ... that's a lot of bull. I mean, ... a lot of driving.

NOT calling FF out on this, but I do NOT see how it was done so efficiently.

Notice also how FF works into the mix that he sat "in the middle". Is that a hint? It is a definite one to me. But those searchers without TTOTC wouldn't know that, would they? Get the book ... everybody!

I have been pushing Hell's Half Acre for years! Even asked RahRah to search it for me. The old driveway formed two omegas, by the way.

OH!, yes the closed minded idiots on CC just don't see the marvelous 43 109 connections... Smile

Seriously, there's good comments there. Read dejoka's query to you and think about it. Do you ever stop to wonder if these numbers do not apply to coordinates but to something else?
I want this to be a fair fight. I'll shoot him in the back myself. That's the Code of the West!

At a certain point it would have made the ol’ “It’s not too late to turn this car around!” threat a moot point...
The right blaze..

New Q And A with FF on MW
Alright, a couple things about this:

1) Evaporative cooling only works well in arid climates.
2) The thing is called a Desert Bag
3) What is the climate like in Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico in June and August


This premium flax, collapsible water bag was designed to provide cold drinking water for our troops in the original war in Iraq, Desert Storm. It holds about one gallon of water and keeps the water cool via evaporation. Works like the old radiator bags from the glory days of route 66. Built to rugged military specs it will give years of service and will pay for itself many times over by providing cold water without ice, in any type of weather. It includes a pair of straps to hang the bag and a string to close the neck at the top of the bag. The bag is 20 inches long and 8 1/2 inches wide.

History: In the "olden days", before air conditioning and modern coolers, people used to hang canvas water bags in front of the car's radiator. This helped prevent the radiator from overheating and also provided cool drinking water.

Vintage water bags routinely sell on eBay for upwards of $50.

Note: these canvas water bags are not designed to "hold" water - they are meant to slowly drip at first, and then become damp, so evaporation can work to cool the water. You will want to soak them thoroughly before first use - it may take anywhere from a few hours to a full days to completely swell the fibers of the bag and seal it. Once done the bag should not drip too often but rather maintain a damp surface. Cooling performance will depend on the relative humidity in the air. The drier the air is, the faster the evaporation and cooling will be, just like a swamp cooler.

In my opinion - if I need to say that. Smile - and apologies in advance to those searchers who already knew all about what I'm about to say. The same goes if I've made a mistake regarding the information below, but I believe that it's correct.

I rarely post on here - and I'm in Oh!'s camp about the 109/43 - although maybe not 100% on Kirwin (at least not "downtown" Kirwin) Wink - that said:

Hell's Half Acre isn't in the Rocky Mountains.

Is Shoshoni? Nope. Lander? No. Ft. Washakie? No. Crowheart? No.

Thermopolis, Dubois (barely), Meeteetse, Cody, and yes, Kirwin all are (and many others). But the search can and should be narrowed using this information and a "good map".

In fact, only a few sections of Hwy 26 (if you're following that route) cross in and out of the border of the Rockies.

Also note that Denver is not "in" the Rocky Mountains, but is in the Great Plains, on the eastern edge of them.

I've posted this idea elsewhere - that everyone should get the Rocky Mountains physiographic map overlay for Google Earth and look real close.

A "good map", to start, is a physiographic map of the Rocky Mountains. If you don't understand the defined borders of them, you're not even close to beginning in the right spot. There are other helpful maps once you've discovered wwwh, etc... - but that's a different post.

Check the physiographic map. The 66,000 links (8.25 miles) north of Santa Fe was a hint for this as well....that's the border of the Southern Rocky Mountains.

The last thing that I'll mention here is that, in my opinion, Me in the Middle, and the sitting in the middle comment both refer to the "Middle Rocky Mountains".

That might narrow the search for some who have an open mind and might be willing to abandon their "special spot" if it's outside of these borders...feel free to disagree if you'd like. The Rocky Mountain borders can't really be questioned - and that might explain the whole "borders" story too. The "middle" part - well, you decide.

Lol - did I sound tense? Just trying to be helpful.
