Re: Bush Fire

@The_Eagle Are you referring to the building/container up the short road from FR 626/FR 27 intersection? (Which I would characterize as the NE ridge of Ord anyway) 33.924392 -111.403335 Or the buildings just north and below the FR 626/FR 1688 intersection? (Owned I believe by the folks Tracey and I...

Re: Bush Fire

Wasn't there a few structures about 1/3 of the way up? Yes. There are some folks who we met in person last year who live there year-round, and based on what we saw from the other side of 87 yesterday their home MAY have been saved but without driving/hiking up FR 626 it's impossible to say. There i...

@sam_hikes The Jeepers in the video are an embarrassment to true Jeepers... such terrible spotting and even worse driving they gotta be newbies. :M2C: {Edit} They weren't newbies, they were idiots and the lack of both driving and critical thinking skills reared their collective ugly heads. At the b...

Re: COVID Ruined our Plans - Need helping finding an out-of-state "Cabin Loop"

@big_load Well, a month or so ago a guy drove from New York to LA in something like 25-1/2 hours in a rental Mustang... of course with three gas tanks inside the car and another in the trunk he had no room for luggage or a family.

Re: Bush Fire

there's a map on az511 Yup, great site, I've used it for 3-4 years now. One curiosity I noted last night, based on the 511 site it appears there may be another fire between Usery Pass Road and Water Users parking lot... At the Usery Pass Road/Bush Highway intersection AZ 511 site states: June 22 12...

I believe that means a single lane northbound from the AZ87/FR 627/FR 626 (Mount Ord) intersection to the AZ 87/AZ 188 intersection.

@ShatteredArm
Boulder Mountain is in the center so yes, it is likely the Mount Ord, Reno Pass area.

@chumley
Current NASA fire map shows it has crossed west over AZ 87 just south of Sunflower, looks like it's headed up Diamond Mountain and toward Indian Spring Peak. Must be real change in wind direction.

Re: Bush Fire

It actually may be interesting to inspect some of these areas after they burn and open up In my experience hiking in areas not long after a fire (one within days, one a week and the other a month), by accepting it as a natural process (all were lightning-caused fires) I sought out and was rewarded ...

Re: Tobacco Chat

no longer have the gym Last year we started looking at it like this... add up the monthly cost for a year and see how much equipment we can buy for that amount. We started with weights, then various low-dollar items like stretch bands, a small bench, and now we just ordered an exercise bike. (No ne...

@SuperstitionGuy My one-and-only attempt at smoking went pretty much the same way, only it wasn't quite as embarrassing because I didn't try it in front a friends. Kind of like my experience with beer... one-and-done and never again. (pretty much goes for all alcohol due to family genetic dispositi...

Re: Bush Fire

I probably wont be hiking my frequent go-to trails along Bush until the fire is out and/or we get some rain to knock the smoke down. This morning I hadn't reached the Granite Reef picnic area on Bush Hwy before feeling a raw throat so I quickly turned around and headed out to Apache Junction, where ...
