I'd suggest finding a hike similiar in length and altitude gain and testing yourself before you go. A canyon hike is much different then a mountain hike. In a canyon, you can't turn around if you get too tired. At that point it's too late. The out trek is 2-3 times more difficult then the in trek. T...

Paint balls on state land?

Does anyone know if paintball guns are legal to use on state trust land? I'm pretty sure it's not. I'm looking for the ARS or law stating it.

Thanks.

If you haven't been to boyce thompson yet, it's worth a trip. It's touristy this time of year, but it's a nice walk with a lot of different plant life.

Also consider Jacobs Crosscut, or an out and back on the dutchmans trail from firstwater trailhead.

YES, for fear of being shot.

Indian lands

YES for fear of having them take away everything I have on me (legally).

It takes a little bit to get it lit (it took me two matches when I tried it), but once lit it burns nicely for awhile.

I've never used any other fire starter so I'm curious how others would compare how well it works.

You can also take the dutchmans trial to bluff springs and bluff springs back to the trail head. About 9 miles total, a great loop hike.

I carry a mini bic and coleman water proof matches as a backup. Never had a problem with either. I've tested the coleman water proof matches and they work fine when wet. I was impressed. For fire starter I carry a few small squares I cut from an old bike inner tube. I think I got that tip from someo...

Most hikes you can bring your dog, but most places you must have your dog on a leash at all times and all places require you clean up after them. I take my dogs on just about all my hikes. They love it. After a good rain there is always plenty of water in the Supes for a week or so, so you don't hav...

In response to ajcanable's reply: Good point. However, I doubt that anyone goes up to Brown's peak just to find the cach thus I doubt that cach draws extra traffic to Brown's Peak other then the people that are planning on going up there anyway.

In response to DoFear's reply:

I think the people at the geocaching websites need to put their GPS down, look at a map, and remove all the illegal caches from their websites. It's very irresponsible to post the illegal ones.

I did one once and it wasn't all that exciting. I followed my GPS and found a box full of junk next to a tree. It's kind of like a treasure hunt but with something telling you exactly where to go and no treasure at the end. It is good practice on how to use your GPS though. I agree with azhiker96, I...

I've seen a lot of people do the wrong things and usually not make it. Bring plenty of water and be prepared for just about anything. Knowing what to do is more important then having the right stuff with you, but having the right stuff helps. As Pete said, keeping calm and thinking straight is the k...

Great job getting out of that mess. Once you were lost you did everything right. Please post this in the articles section for others to read once this post dies out.

My $.02, research prices on what you are buying very carefully and always remember to add the shipping price. I check Ebay all the time when looking to buy something and it has been more and more common lately that I find other web retailers that sell the same thing cheaper then it goes for on Ebay.

Remember, high of 55 is going to be at about 4pm, and you should be done by then.
The coldest time of day is just after sunrise, about the same time you are starting. Expect it to be about 30 degress the first few hours.

Yep, I get mine at a sporting good store. My thoughts: if the cut is minor enough for a band aid to take care of it, it probably doesn't need to be covered. If it needs to be covered, gauze and a wrap work better then a band aid anyway. As for moleskin, with comfortable shoes you don't need it. Waxy...
