Re: delorme inreach

Just wondering... does anyone make sure their spouse who stays home gets their own device? If your spouse has the need to know where you are at all times, shouldn't turnabout be fair play? After all, if they don't sit in the house all day waiting for your return, they are probably out and about, sha...

This site says the Anchas or at least part are closed.

Re: Best Rim For Full Moon Hike

@SpiderLegs In July 2008 my one-and-only Grand Canyon hike was a fabulous full moon hike on the South Kaibab trail. However, since I haven't even hiked any other GC trails,full-moon for not, I can't say if it would be better or worse than other hikes. Tim (davis2001r6) put this event together and h...

Re: Tonto Forest Fire Restrictions--Vehicular Traffic

@TannerF Yes, for Devils Chasm you are correct. In reference to: cliff dwellings in the Tonto Area I took that to mean Tonto National Monument. If you meant in the Tonto National Forest , that covers a HUGE area. Upon your mention of Devils Chasm, that would dwellings in the Sierra Ancha/Cherry Cree...

Re: Tonto Forest Fire Restrictions--Vehicular Traffic

@ddgrunning I believe the reference to 'spark-arresting' devices came about due mainly to ATV's & dirt-bikes, many of which had practically nothing for a muffler, and thus the possibility for sparks to exit the exhaust system. When it comes to road-legal cars & trucks of today, it's really NOT an i...

Re: Changing Hands & AZW Brewing present Craig Childs - May 15th

Why do people ask for/cherish autographed items? My top two votes would be: 1. Bragging-rights 2. Another excuse for hoarding Due to the smart phone boom I believe written autographs will soon be a thing of the past, replaced by the ubiquitous autograph-by-selfie , which IMO, are simply about raisin...

Re: Changing Hands & AZW Brewing present Craig Childs - May 15th

@tibber
In my mind Chumley's question boils down to: "Why do people seek autographs?"
So while your reply is certainly interesting, no, it doesn't help much... :doh: :lol:

Re: Compasses

I simply can't duplicate by scrolling this way and that on the small screen. Agreed... which is why I do my planning in advance using Route Editor's fine choice of maps on a 15" screen. I first use the Topo maps to get the lay-of-the-land , then switch to Satellite for the fine-tuning. Of course, d...

Re: Compasses

I prefer a map over a GPS because I can review a map and determine where I want to go while a GPS will tell me where to go. I agree maps do offer many benefits over a GPS, but there are benefits of the GPS over a map as well... it's up to which is best for the individual. In my case, a GPS is the b...

Re: AzTrail Passages 16-17

@Preacher If you have not already done so, get the AZT app . While it may not always be up-to-the-minute, it IS a worthwhile resource as there are folks constantly providing updated water reports. If you have the app and look at the notation for the water box at FR4 (where #17 crosses it) you will ...
