    The only reason I'm familiar with the iron problem is a book I read about the development of the vermilion iron range in MN. All of my spouses family came to that region to work in the range from Slavic nations. The book stated the guys would carry a compass into a area and if it didn't work, they had found a iron formation.

    if in doubt about your map, while using it, but sure to have your gps app in “breadcrumb” mode so that you can backtrack even if visually disoriented

    And based on occupancy last year, Oregon needs 1777 available campgrounds.:shocked:
    Honestly, we are blessed with a lot of camping/outdoor opportunities. One is awaiting you should you ever get a chance.

    We buy a new DeLorme about every 3 years, look for copyright date first.

    onX offroad, Avenza and Gaia all three have offline map features. I’m also a paper map/chart junkie so like the backup.
    If you are adventurous in Oregon there are so many wonderful NFS & BLM places to camp that aren’t in campgrounds. The agencies call it dispersed camping. Nothing better than a blow up mattress and sleeping bag under the stars in the middle of nowhere! Still love my popup.

    Ive been using Gaia GPS on my ipad & phone for a few years. Excellent maps, works great offline. $20. It's worked well in very remote parts of Wyoming and S Utah
