Re: Mindless chit chat

When I walked out I caught myself saying "it's almost freezing" and quickly realized the idiocy of that remark, even if it was under my alarmed breath :lol: .

Re: Mindless chit chat

@chumley Omg. I did a ShowLow run last night. It was my first time seeing the aftermath of the fire. The mountains above Slate creek look lik a hairless cat! That’s gonna be a mess when it rains. Also the amount of Saguaros we are gonna lose between the Ballantine Trail and Bush Highway is going to...

Re: Bush Fire

I swear I can now see the smoke from my house up on the 101 and Cave Creek. I saw the plumes this morning and then after my gym class the plumes had flattened and spread out across the sky along the McDowells. But now as I look out my window to the NE at home, I see what appears to be smoke as it's ...

@LosDosSloFolks
Ya, they just posted on Facebook too. Let's hope they can nip this one in the bud quickly. From here it doesn't look too breezy so hopefully that will help a little.

Re: Cave Creek Takes First Step To Expand Spur Cross

I just wish they could reach some sort of amenable agreement/price with the current landowners. What a great legacy those landowners could leave to all of us. Let's hope.

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

and very sadly, so far it looks like only walk-ins for Glacier Park if at all, which doesn't make a bunch of sense either. We think it's partly a staffing issue (can't put as many folks in the dorms) to do trail work as well as all the other duties. I had just figured out how my hiking partner could...

He's backpacked a couple areas we are hoping to do this summer. Anyway, I thot the Grand Canyon backpacking video was a great backpack and h...

Re: Harmony Hollow Land Parcel in Cave Creek

Thx for sharing. Interesting about the 1/2 cent sales tax diversion after it paid for Spur Cross. Technically it should have ended once the purchase was complete thus it seems reasonable to divert it long enough to pay for Harmony Hollow. And I'm all for making money but it seems the owners of Harmo...

12 Day Grand Cany Backpacking/Float Video

I'm to South Bass beach around Day 7 of this video. Those of you have hiked from Hermits to Royal and out via North Bass will really appreciate it. I'm watching it over time and have found it very good and the quality of the video is top notch. I'd like to know how they make it so smooth. Anyway, it...

Re: American Prairie Reserve

@Jim_H This is the first I've heard of this. I haven't heard any Montanans complain about it. Maybe I'll put it up on Facebook and see if I get any reaction. However, most of my Montana peeps are not from the area of this park. Even from Gt Falls it is a 4 hour drive and then they suggest using you...

Re: Mindless chit chat

Just got my new rain gutter installed but let's just say the handyman has to come back as it leaked at the seams on the downspout. I'm hoping my additional guttering will alleviate the build up of water in my porch area. And to chime in here for my Montana peeps: Great Falls broke their overall snow...

They sure blew this Forecast. I opted not to go on a 4 Day Camping Trip over Thanksgiving. On Monday they were predicting Rain every day, so I cancelled it. Pretty Disappointed in how things didn't develop. This was my only chance to get away for the next couple of months.... When the storm rolled ...
