In the past I have hiked/backpacked alone for many years. Up until a year ago this July when I found an awesome partner willing to share the experience. Nevertheless, Cass, as joe pointed out you're one of the few, perhaps, really the many who share this experience. Really none like it in my opinion...

[But in no way, shape, or form am I going to make fun of Abe's sandals. I've seen pictures of that stick he carries] :oops: Ah man, I'm into peace, love, and Bob Dylan. 8) But when it is all said and done, what matters is what is comfortable, functional, and partical for the individual.

I wear Teva's. No socks. I do have a problem with those who wear socks with sandals. Unnatural. My wife don't pick my outfits, she just knows when we go out, in the summer it's shorts and Teva's with a nice polo shirt. And in the winter it's poor man Rustler Jeans, Hi Tec's, and a nice long sleeve s...

Wow! Been keeping an eye on this post sinced it resurfaced. Reminds me of that ol' Timex commercial, "Takes a lickin', but keeps on a tickin'."

Or perhaps the movie I watched with my kids, "A Never Ending Story." :D

So I hear Preskitt is Home of the Scorpion. :) We have a few. I've always liked what Edward Abbey wrote; "Arizona is the native haunt of the scorpin, the solpugid, the sidewinder, the tarantula, the vampire bat, the conenose kissing bug, the vinegarroon, the centipede, and three species of poisonou...

The worst animal around Prescott is the large and dangerous Humveeous Californicus. :lol: I love it! Don't see rattlers often, last one I seen was last year in Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. Made me jumped as usual when it buzzed. Scropions on the other hand; well, in our home I've step over 'em a tim...

Where is Enchanted Canyon, more specifically? Has the land already been sold to the developer? The development is west of Prescott off of Iron Springs Road or as you head to some Granite Mountain trails. I do not think it is a name of the canyon so much as a name for the development. If I recall it...

Of course, my favorite is the atrocity is that resort deep in the Red Rocks Wilderness at Boynton Canyon in Sedona. Nothing like hiking along a trail that has NO HIKERS/NO TRESPASSING signs all over and a barbed wire fence. They want to keep us wild eyed, long hair, miscreants out, (or are we wildl...

Pretty much have the same gear with the exception of my tent, which is a Coleman Peak II. I'll preface by first saying I don't camp when it is less than thirty, cold weather and I do not get along and if I do, I will generally bring a poncho liner to go in my sleeping bag. However, two suggestions p...

Never been one for an umbrella; however, be interested in reading your comments Joe. Will be backpacking next week with my sister-in-law on the rim and when I briefed her told her to water proof her gear with trash bags and bring an extra set of clothes. Monsoons you know. Seems you can never count ...

When you're up Prescott way sometime with the grand kids, Lynx Lake Trail is nice for youngsters. And for a little more of a challenge there's the Lynx Creek Ruin Trail.

Good, awesome, excellent comments above. Cannot add to what has been said. I remember during my youth I would sleep on the ground all the time. However, at my age and the fact I generally backpack alone I use my tent. It gives me a small feeling of security, of course with my walking stick next to m...

Yep, I seem out and about much like the above mention; however, I've never seen 'em during the heat of the day in the middle of the summer.
Clearly smart.
