Re: iPhone or Samsung?

Tracey and I have had Samsung S5's for 4 years and would go with another Samsung if/when we need to replace them, which may be a long time. Battery life? Far better than expected, with only Tracey's starting to lose a bit in the last month or so, yet not bad enough to replace the battery over. (And ...

@Sredfield
Yup... Also, the scenery is different depending on which direction you hike it, so you must hike it both ways as well. :stp:

Re: Route Scout for Dummies

But when I get out on the trail do I need to record my hike? Yes. When you start hiking, just click ' begin activity ' and it will begin recording. When done hiking, click the white circle outlined in red in the top left corner to stop the recording. will it show where I am at on the route? Yes. It...

Re: Goldfield Mountains Hikes not found

Part of the problem is that in the Goldfields there are no "official" trails... and on USGS topographic maps the only named peak is Dome Mountain. Also... CalTopo, FS and a number of other maps label TWO Dome Mountains, 3381 in the Stewart Dam Quadrangle and 3269 in the Apache Junction Quadrangle. ...

Re: Government Shutdown

I vowed to myself not to comment further as it would just be like wrestling with pigs... we'd just get all muddy and only the pigs will be happy. However... I thought it wouldn't hurt for others to know what kind of 'representation' we are (or are NOT) receiving in DC. 1. I called Senator Sinema's o...

Re: Government Shutdown

@Jim_H
Agreed on both counts.
Right now the politicos don't have enough incentive to end the shutdown, something I don't see changing until practically everyone is affected... only then will our 'leaders' feel the pressure to get it done.

Re: Four Peaks amethyst mine theft

Surely MVD has a searchable database which could have found a "black Toyota Tundra with a possible partial Arizona plate of GYO65" within 6 months? I'd be very surprised if there was more than a single Tundra matching that description.

Re: True Confessions of HAZ

@skatchkins I'm a bit curious... Did you park somewhere where a pass is actually required? I can't believe how many folks I meet who think a pass is required for just about anything in Tonto NF... like simply parking at a Bulldog gate lot, or even at wider pull-outs along Bush Highway. I usually te...

Re: Help build new Hawes Trail 12/22/18 8am-noon

The shutdown did take effect so all volunteer work should have ceased. However... with the event being scheduled so far in advance as well as such a great turnout (50+?) the trail construction went ahead as planned and the 'Scorpion Alley' connector trail was completed in under two hours. About half...

A new trail running west from the mid-point of the 3-week-old Scorpion Trail will be constructed this coming Saturday, December 22 between 8 am and noon. This trail will be a 'connector' as it will connect Scorpion with another soon-to-be constructed horseshoe-loop trail. This loop trail will eventu...
