Yaak River Rd. heading north to Yaak, MT. Off the beaten path. Small town with two bars. One has a little store and restaurant. Lots of wildlife.

No cell service, but when I headed north up Porcupine Pass and started the descent my phone, which was on in case I needed the camera, started blowing up. Stopped to check it. Saw a message that I was on the Verizon of Canada network and got two daysí worth of texts messages.

we did a lot of camping last year in national parks and had similar experiences. Cool to be disconnected for a while.

Snap!! Thats my current setup too. Great pump although I had to replace my original one when its gauge became brittle and cracked from sun damage after a couple of years.

I made sure the new one didn't have a gauge as despite when I bought the original, there was lots of spares available, there was none to be found online the month the gauge failed.

Maybe I need to put some 303 protectant on my gauge before my next tour to protect against the UV. I mostly use the Lezyne pumps for touring, lighter weight and size. Thus they are stored indoors out of the sunlight.

When riding near home I lean towards the Road Morph G for the more convenient chuck. I picked up a couple cheap used Road Morph G pumps at swap meets, etc. Cleaned the dust and dirt out of them, now work as well as new. And since I picked them up for a cheap price, I am less concerned about theft for everyday use.
