Looking for AZT section hike partner(s)

Hey all, I hope this is the appropriate place to post this. I live in the valley and I am looking for other HAZers who are section hiking the AZT and looking for partners or to share rides. I am less than 10% done with the AZT and I can already tell my wife and kids are tiring of shuttling me to "Go...

Re: Non-potable water availability in GCNP

@Tough_Boots Thank you-- I am planning to bring one or the other. If I am going light, I may opt for the drops/tabs just as a precaution. I will probably opt to bring the Grayl purifier at this point though since I just upgraded my pack last night to a 60L internal frame (after many years without a...

Re: Non-potable water availability in GCNP

@DixieFlyer Thanks, Dixie-- that is sort of what I had figured as well. I think I am just being overly cautious because I am taking my 8-year old daughter with me. I have no concerns about her being able to do the hike (and I am by no means the ultralight backpacker type) but am also obsessing a bi...

Non-potable water availability in GCNP

Hi HAZ Community-- My daughter and I are going to be doing a 3-day backpacking trip from the South Rim of GCNP this October (down South Kaibab on Day 1 and up Bright Angel Days 2 & 3) and was wondering if anyone can help provide some general advice from your wealth of experience. I recently bought a...

National Parks ban e-cigs

I don't know if I agree with this. I don't really want people blowing that vapor nonsense in my face while hiking in our national park system but, what are the odds of that ever happening? Certain people are going to attempt to smoke one way or the other and, if the method by which they are permitte...

I didn't read everyone else's comments so if this has already been noted (as it seems pretty obvious to me) forgive the redundancy. It seems to me that renaming (which I thought took place a couple years ago) this mountain has long been the mission of the those who believe that 'squaw' is an offensi...

I also took the Outdoor Survival class offered by ASU and can honestly say that I got far more valuable knowledge out of this class than I did in any other during my 4+ years earning a degree there. The prof was (and I imagine still is) a guy named Kozac (this was an abbreviation of his last name, s...

I just learned about geocaching recently. It seemed intriguing at first but then the more I read about it the more it seemed kinda childish to me. It looks like something that spang from the log books often found at trail-heads that could potentially strengthen the hiking community but has turned in...
