on 2 thought I just added a 24 buck in line water filter from sports mens warehouse in gand junction to my line up for four wheeler camping but its going along with the tear. you can also get them at wallworld for 19 bucks just take a pop bottle and fill it from the lake and sqeeze the water though it.......takes time but it works great if your on atvs. I suppose with teardrops it could be handy as I camp on the other side of the winderivers from where walk the winds is all my life.

good chance we will be undr fire bans this year landers distcit forest servie fire sign is pure red and the fire danger is exteme its 90 degreas in pavillon with 35 mph winds. we are having a ton of local grass fires and the big fire is up the hoback from pinedale only 20 miles from us. and its got 191 shut down to Jackson they are evacuating bonderatant its not looking good we may not even be able to do our coleman lantern light off..............I was out fishing today so I got to make sure and call the bridger forest office in pinedale tommrow and see what fire banns we are under. not sure where the smokes headed but we are pretty clear in pavillon. we are over the moutian drictly from pinedale. the big hoback fire and the one by dubois on union pass is all over facebook today. slow its a bummer.

Mike, if you remember we had a fire ban in 2012. Because we were in the group site and were using the provided big fire ring we could have a fire. But those across the road in the New Forks CG could not. Also as long as you use the BBQ grills they supply we could grill and do Dutch Oven cooking. So don't stress about the fires till you have to.

we got two twin fires on ether side of the mountain they are not going to effect us at pinedale other than the smoke like 2012. they are huge 191 is still closed from pinedale to jacksn. due to the cliff fire..........that's the largest one they are in old beetle killed trees thanks to the no logging rules and no fire wood rules. an both are zero containment. we are miles from them and like 012 we just will have to deal with the smoke and try to get some photos. both are up near Jackson one is over the moutians from us on uion pass by dubois. theres no danger to us by pinedale. other than rats the smog stuff.........we have dealt like steve said in 2012 with this and have had okay great gatherings............no problems........its why will and me or sage brush and slow decided to start having walk the winds in july instead of august..........last year we won great blue skys gaterin this year got to way hot in june so no cigar.....any ways..........like steve says we should have no issues. I got to take time from farming today to call the bridger forest in pinedale to ask questions.

not looking good for you on facey book by Friday don they are now 7678 acres on fire and by tonight zero contamnet. I would get moving pronto and run down to alpine junection and around by star valley to big piney and over...........they don't think it will be open by Friday and they don't know when its going to be open they don't have the fire even started to be contained yet. even consider moving tomrow down to rivrton or lander and come over south pass..........I don't think it will be open by Friday...........hey got to many acres of dead beetle killed trees on fire and they are not even close to getting it under control..........slowcowboy

the fire by dubois is lot litter so the pass to dubis is open but that ones also out of control. theres one by lander but its small. you should be fine to come down to moran junection tommorw and run down over the pass to dubois and then down to lander and over south pass you can do that and by tommrow afternoon be in pinedale and new forks by frieday. forget 191 opening up they pretty much stated on facebook its not got a chance of getting opened up any time soon.

For me and Rob it looks like the rout around the closed road is only 20 miles longer. And a lot of road I have never been on before. So no real problem for me.
