... and as a member of BBARC, I and others monitor the Christmas mountain repeater.   Get your 2 meter license and you can chat all day on our repeaters (but please don't!)

Don't be shy about yelling for help if you really need it.  I may do nothing more than turn your info over to the Park Ranges or the Sheriff but at least I'm step in getting you the help you may need.

I don't know for sure which waterfall you heard was flowing along the Pine Canyon trail. I'm guessing it's the pour off at the end of the trail.
Depending on rain there is a strong chance that pour off will not be flowing in five days. It may trickle for a few days after a major rain event, but, the waterfall period is short. The forecast doesn't call for much rain between now and the 26th.
Whether the pour off is flowing or not you should go and hike Pine Canyon it's beautiful. If you want to see a waterfall go to Cattail Falls

I'm going to be arriving to Big Bend on Wednesday the 26th in a Lexus Rx330 (SUV) and I'm wondering what the conditions on Pine Canyon road are. I've heard there is a waterfall currently visible from the trail which is what inspired me make my return visit.Just hoping I can safely get to it.

Big Bend on the Web / Re: Anthony Bourdain in Big Bend

Apologies if this was covered elsewhere--

According to what I've read there's a remaining Parts Unknown episode that was filmed in the general "Big Bend area," which I know is an awful lot of territory besides the park, though it's clear he was there as well. My understanding is it was filmed but he was no longer with us to do the production commentary but the episode will be completed nevertheless.

Some of the ads running for the remaining episodes make it look like he's sitting somewhere in the park but impossible to know for sure.

Guess I might have to change my screenname to badknees2 :D  Found out that I've regrown numerous bone spurs in both knees, and that is what is causing my issues.  Especially on uphill sections, since the knee compresses more when pedaling.  Got a cortisone shot in each knee to help for now, and will regroup to see what my options going forward are going to be.

Sorry to hear this, when the body parts start to rebel it is hard to get a handle on it!
