    That's true! I know I had a few times in past were I had 20 plus hours between sheds! Scary!

    These are all approximate miles but are pretty close.

    2014 - 31.3 miles and 23 sheds
    2015 - 24.5 miles and 5 sheds
    2016 - 8.1 miles and 0 sheds
    2017 - 4 miles and 5 sheds
    2018 - 5.9 miles and 7 sheds
    2019 - 4.5 miles and 0 sheds


    I really want to get my miles to 20+ every year. Early spring for planting and my son sure dropped my time spent out there those last 4 years.

    What have you seen as far as battery and data usage?

    I sometimes walk 11 or 12 miles in one day shed hunting to find 4 or 5 so to find 23 with only 31 miles walked is pretty impressive.

    I feel this on a personal level. Some days/spots are fantastic, averaging probably over 2 sheds per mile. Other times its 0 sheds in 25 miles. That's when I start to lose it a little bit.

    Well I just had one of those days. Walked for 6 hours and found nothing! So depressing! I did come across this today, spring is on the way![​IMG]

    I use MapMyRun. Doesn’t seem to drain my battery too much. I usually go out for just a couple hours. Just keep it in a pocket next to your body so the cold doesn’t contribute to the battery loss. For some reason my replacement battery on my iPhone 6 drains in no time in my coat pocket.

    Just picked up #4!

    This sucks because I need to leave soon and don't know if I will be back here anytime soon.[​IMG]

    Mom was gone so little man and I took a quick walk this afternoon. Didn't go where I was real confident but it was a good easy spot to get to with all the snow we have yet.

    I used MapMyRun yesterday for 2 hrs. Only used up 20% of my battery. Mid 30’s outside and phone was in my pants pocket staying warm. Didn’t find anything. Still a good foot of crunchy snow in our woods. Should have brought the snowshoes wasn’t a fun walk.

    Just picked first one of the morning. Old one, stepped right on it. I looked back to see what I stepped on, and sure enough a shed![​IMG]
