That is what I thought and why I haven't ridden there, but the supes sure would be fun!

I've seen tire tracks on second water trail and have been wondering if it is legal. Sure would be fun (of course while respecting hikers, horses and everyone else)!

My opinion.. The North Face has some great low cut "trail running" shoes that I have had great success with. No problem with a fifty pound pack. The only problem is longevity... new pair every year because of tread wear. I'm on my second set after trying the Merrils and some ACG's. Check 'em out at ...

Try Revis Ranch in the Superstitions.

Not many shades of brown... Lots of different greens and if you are lucky, some of apple red!

In response to Daryl's reply:

Sounds like its time for Joe to step in... how about a table showing in descending order, miles logged vs. posts, per year, of the HAZ participants?

My dog wears the Arizona bandanna when we hike, I guess I'm kind of like Joe and not a bandanna sort of person. I do have a HAZ sticker on the back window of my truck, but have never had any comments about it. I sure would think that by now I would have come across one of you guys in a parking lot...

If you are worried about your wine becoming too airy due to bouncing, try a 1-liter plastic Platypus container. Pop your (wine) cork just prior to hitting the trail, funnel into the container and squeeze the air out and your good to go. The first time I used this method I put two containers into a l...

In response to agregc's reply: The Discovery Trail is a small, short trail that runs through the Lost Dutchman State Park's camping areas. It has plaques along its way showing visitors what a saguaro cactus or a mesquite tree is. If you enter the park, try to stay to the right as far as you can. Th...

There is a difference between going off trail and bushwhacking.

Bushwhacking, or randomly upsetting the balance of nature by being reckless, is what offends people (in my opinion).

Exploring off trail is fine as long as you don't trash the environment!

CindyC, DoFear kind of got it right... stock Tacoma TRD with mud TA's. Kind of cool that you can buy a truck with a push-button rear locker straight from the dealer. My biggest fear is inflicting more damage than I owe on the thing. I also have an '84 Toy w/ dual Webber side drafts, off road only, s...

the Crown King trail isn't all it's cracked up to be. Any other trail and I'm game
How about thinking about some of us with stock Toyotas.

I like car camping, but love backpacking. Which way I go just depends upon what is on the menu... literally. Wine tasting on the rim requires vehicles. Perfectly quiet solitude requires doing things not everyone else can or will. Backpacking. I haven't seen the need to R-V, besides I don't think I c...

Thanks Matt,

Grew up around REI, but have never seen these animals before. I think that the upcoming winter will be much warmer!

Okay, I hate to say it, but I own a synthetic North Face Big Fella. It fits myself and my 65 pound dog nicely. The main problem is that my toes get cold because it is made for a 6' 5" person. The idea of a silk liner sounds like a great idea to keep the toes warm. Glen or Rick, where would one look ...
