Big Bend Conservancy
Peter, this is an excellent report, and I hope to be able to use your detailed descriptions one day if I can even get down to that lower portion of the park. I'm learning some things too, including the name and source for glochids and the duct tape idea, and that the park has an emergency email that InReach users could use. One question about your InReach. It sounds like you used the InReach for tracking for both trips (although it sounded like you also used your phone for the first trip?). How did the battery hold up after nearly a week logging tracks? What interval did you use? And did you use any sort of charger to recharge it in the field? I've not used this functionality on mine but I seem to recall, in reading about it, that the battery life in tracking mode was less than for dedicated GPS devices. I would not want to risk having the batter run low in case of an emergency. Curious to know your thoughts on the matter.
