  1. From the National Weather Service: Very hot temperatures through Wednesday have prompted an Excessive Heat Warning for the Grand Canyon in elevations below 4,000 feet. Phantom Ranch could experience daytime temperatures up to 113 degrees Fahrenheit (44 degrees C). Stay hydrated during these hot next few days.

  2. Hallo Manuela und Peter,

    in Eurer Situation würde ich auf Herbst verschieben oder wenn das nicht geht halt in nächstes Jahr rein.

    Derzeit ist es so, dass landesweit wieder die Wirtschaft am "Anfahren" ist, so dass sich die Einschränkungen vor Ort wohl jetzt auf Juli hin gesehen in Grenzen halten. ABER: es wird sehr unterschiedlich gehandhabt, heisst ihr müsst euch vor Ort ständig über die Öffnungszeiten informieren von Nationalparks etc. 

    Des Weiteren ist es ja so, dass ihr in das Land derzeit gar nicht rein kommt. Wann die Einreisebegrenzungen wieder aufgehoben werden, steht noch in den Sternen. 

    Bei welcher Mietwagenfirma habt ihr gebucht? Hertz hat vor ein paar Tagen erst Insolvenz angemeldet. 

    Desweiteren würde ich New York City als Hub-Airport vermeiden wollen derzeit. 

    Meine Einschätzung wäre die, auf frühen Herbst reinzuschieben oder auf nächstes Jahr. Juli halte ich etwas zu früh. Aber natürlich ist das alles der "Blick in die Glaskugel". 


  3. ALERT: Grand Canyon National Park is CLOSED Tuesday May 19, Wednesday May 20, and Thursday May 21, due to public health concerns (COVID-19) These closures are in effect 24-hours a day during this 3 day period.

    During Memorial Day Weekend, beginning Friday, May 22, through Monday, May 25, there will be limited access to portions of the South Rim. Details will be posted at https://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/grand-canyon-national-park-public-health-update.htm as soon as they have been finalized.

    Information about rescheduling backcountry permit reservations can be obtained by emailing grca_bic@nps.gov

    Due to the closure of Grand Canyon National Park, backcountry permits are not being issued, and staff are instructed to deny any permit requests they receive.

  4. Grand Canyon's water supply comes from Roaring Springs, a natural spring located approximately 3,500 feet below the North Rim. Water is delivered via an aging pipeline that suffers multiple breaks a year. When the pipeline breaks, water stops flowing to the North and South Rims and sites along the way. Although large storage tanks provide ample water to rim locations, while the pipeline is being repaired water may or may not be available below the rim in the cross-canyon Corridor. Please remember, when hiking below the rim a method to treat water must always be part of your hiking gear.

    The list below shows if water is on or off (if the pipeline is undergoing repairs water may be off temporarily)

    • North Kaibab Trailhead: water OFF
    • Supai Tunnel: water OFF
    • Roaring Springs Day Use Area is CLOSED: water OFF
    • Manzanita Day Use Area: water water OFF
    • Cottonwood Campground: water water OFF
    • Bright Angel Campground: water OFF
    • Plateau Point: water OFF
    • Indian Garden: water ON
    • Bright Angel Trail, Three-Mile Resthouse: water OFF
    • Bright Angel Trail, Mile-and-a-Half Resthouse: water OFF
    • Bright Angel Trailhead: water ON
    • South Kaibab Trailhead: water OFF

    Seasonal water stations are usually turned off for the winter sometime between Oct 10th and 30th dependent on location and associated temperatures.

    Water available (year-round) on the South Rim at the Backcountry Information Center in the lobby. Water available (year-round) on the North Rim outside the Backcountry Information Center. Additional water bottle filling stations can be found on the Go "Green" and Refill Your Water Bottles web page.

    Plan Ahead and Prepare: A backup method to treat water, should the pipeline break, must always be included as part of your hiking gear. Backcountry hikers should always carry extra water.

  5. The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is CLOSED until further notice - due to public health concerns (COVID-19). All visitor facilities, trails, and roads on the North Rim are closed. The North Rim closure is in effect 24-hours a day/7-days a week. Information regarding reopening will be posted at https://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/grand-canyon-national-park-public-health-update.htm

  6. After heavy summer rain (July and August) or winter snow (December through March), expect impassable backcountry roads. If clear skies abound after the rain or snow, then it is often just a matter of days until the sun dries everything out. Sometimes, heavy rain or melting snow can lead to flooding, which can cause erosion of the roadbed and can delay access.

    Other considerations for visitors travelling on remote backcountry roads include high clearance, such as may be needed on Forest Road 328 to South Bass Trailhead (limestone ledges) and on the final approach to Toroweap overlook (sandstone knobs and ledges).

    Finally, consider elevation of the road that you will be travelling on, especially during the winter months. Roads in the 6,500 to 8,000 foot range may be impassable due to a snowpack, where lower elevations roads (below 6,000 feet) will see deteriorated road conditions due to rain.

    Always check road conditions with the Backcountry Information Center before heading out to remote trailheads, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back, and be adaptable and prepared for the worst. High clearance, four-wheel drive is usually recommended for roads to remote trailheads.

    ------------------------------------------

    It is not uncommon for trees to fall and block access to remote trailheads. When you encounter a road blocked by fallen trees, what should you do?
    • Report the location and diameter of the tree to Grand Canyon park dispatch (928-638-7805) as soon as possible. The park will assign staff to clear the road.
    • If an appropriate (not blocking the road and not damaging vegetation) place to park is available, park your vehicle and continue to the trailhead on foot.
    • Do not drive off-road attempting to bypass the obstacle, doing so can cause resource damage.

  7. Due to damage, Ribbon Falls Bridge is closed until further notice. The wood and steel bridge is located approximately six miles north of Phantom Ranch on a trail which takes hikers from the North Kaibab Trail to 120-foot Ribbon Falls.

    Check in with the Backcountry Information Center for the latest trail conditions prior to starting your hike. For information about vehicle access to remote trailheads, contact the Backcountry Information Center.

    ------------------------------------------

    Check in with the Backcountry Information Center for the latest trail conditions prior to starting your hike. For information about vehicle access to remote trailheads, contact the Backcountry Information Center.

    Hiking the Corridor? Be sure to visit the Trail Courtesy Practices That Leave No Trace webpage.

    Hikers without a permit can stop by the Backcountry Information Center to request a last minute permit. Last minute permits and waitlist numbers are issued by the Backcountry Information Center, located inside the park. The South Rim Backcountry Information Center is open daily, year round, for walk-in visitors from 8 am to noon and 1-5 pm Mountain Standard Time. The North Rim Backcountry Information Center is open daily from mid-May to October 31 for walk-in visitors from 8 am to noon and 1-5 pm Mountain Standard Time.

    Organized Group Rim-to-Rim and Extended Day Hike/Run: Any organized, noncommercial, group conducting rim-to-rim and extended day hiking and running, including rim-to-river-to-rim, and rim-to-rim-to-rim in the inner canyon is required to obtain a Special Use Permit from Grand Canyon National Park. The inner canyon is defined as the area below the Tonto Platform (Tipoff and Indian Garden) from the South Rim and below Manzanita Resthouse (Pumphouse Residence) from the North Rim. Any group, regardless of size, which has advertised to the general public, required individuals to sign up prior to participation, or that has an organizer who has been compensated for their services (including subsidized participation in the activity), is required to operate under a Special Use Permit.

  8. Hallo ihr Lieben, 

    Step 1 haben wir bereits getan und das Ergebnis sollte in so 14 Tage im Ranking des Forums sichtbar sein. Wir haben die schlechten Backlinks gestrichen mit dem Ziel, dass wir weiter nach oben kommen. 

    Alles andere ist bei der Suchmaschinenoptimierung ja ein längerer monatelanger Prozess. Ziel ist es wieder mehr neue User in unser Forum zu bringen. 

    Neben dem Konto bei Facebook 

    https://www.facebook.com/usatalk

    gibt es nun auch weitere Social Media Kanäle bei 

    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/usatalkde/

    Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRRDJuR9Y1Yk5zhdPFpxHKQ

    Bei YT werden wir Playlisten erstellen. Des Weiteren darf jeder gerne selber seine eigenen Aufnahmen schicken über wetransfer an mich unter michael.freyermuth@gmx.de. Ich stelle dann eure USA - Videos dort ein. 

     

    Wir werden dort auch immer wieder Topics quer auf diesen Kanälen posten mit dem Ziel, wieder mehr Leute in unser Board zu bringen. 

    Euer "admin-Mike". 

    :)

  9. Danke Frank :)

    Mit der App bin ich derzeit am überlegen, ob wir nicht was komplett eigenes machen. Weil Tapatalk die Entwicklung der Stand-alone-Apps wie das von uns einstellt. Ausnahmen bieten nur noch Kandidaten, die ein eigenes Entwicklerkonto bei Google oder Apple haben. Durch mein Engagement in meinem Heimtort ist das gegeben (weil wir hier eine Art Dorf-App betreiben).  Ich lasse derzeit prüfen, ob wir das Forum nicht 1:1 in was Eigenes packen. Heisst diese Seite würde in eine App eingesperrt werden mit denselben Funktionen. Ich glaube der Push bei abonnierten geht eh nicht. Insofern hat die TapaTalk App keinen Mehrwert im Vergleich zum Forum. Ich lass das derzeit prüfen. 

    fb und das Forum sind leider unterschiedliche Sachen, wir können nur versuchen hier Leute rüberzulotsen, in dem wir ruhig auch Beiträge und Fragen von hier dort teilen und das ein wenig "synchronisieren". Ich starte gerne mal einen Aufruf, wer da mitmachen will. 

    Ich habe gestern auch mal testweise und vorübergehend Google Analytics im Forum installiert um zu sehen, was hier noch an Traffic da ist.  Das muss aber erst mal ein paar Wochen laufen um zu sehen, was Sache ist. Ich muss mal schauen, was sich hier weiter machen lässt. 

    Das war eigentlich meine Hoffnung an Steffen, der ja im Internet-Marketing tätig ist hier sein Wissen für das Forum zu nutzen. Leider kam da nicht viel; ich habe auch seit Jahren keinen Kontakt mehr zu ihm.  

    Ich schau mal was man hier machen kann um hier das Board wieder weiter nach vorne zu bringen. Die Konkurrenz ist halt auch mit Facebook sehr groß geworden, weil die auch das Gebiet der Communities abgrasen und auch groß bewerben. 


  10. Hallo ihr Lieben, 

    ich hoffe, dass es euch allen gut geht und ihr gesund und munter seid. Leider sind derzeit ja Reisen in die USA nicht machbar. Ich wie viele andere hoffen jedoch, dass wir bald wieder in unser heißgeliebtes Land reisen können. 

    Ich habe die Werbung nach langer Zeit wieder aktiviert, damit sich die Lizenzkosten des Forums irgendwie akklimatisieren.  

    Ich wäre allerdings auch jedem zu großen Dank verbunden, wenn jeder vielleicht ein kleines Scherflein über an Paypal mfreyermuth@mf-media.tv dazu beitragen könnte.

    Tabatalk, dessen Framework die Basis für die Smartphone-App bildet, hat leider angekündigt, die individuellen Foren-Apps einzustellen.  Das betrifft uns jetzt meiner Ansicht nach noch nicht ganz so hart, weil ich ja im Rahmen meiner "örtlichen Reiseführertätigkeit" Apps in den diversen Stores habe, was heisst, dass wir zumindest auf der Android-Plattform eigenständig bleiben. 

    Seit rund einem Jahr arbeite ich auch in einer Webagentur, wo ich so einige Sachen was Social Media und Internet Marketing angeht, viel mitbekomme. Ich bin immer wieder am überlegen, ob wir auf den Social Media Kanälen nicht auch für unser Forum werben sollten!? 

    Was meint ihr dazu? 

     

    Euer admin-Mike

     

    P.S.: Ich werde in Kürze auch das neue Plugin für die App installieren und das Forum auf die neueste Version updaten.
