Re: Foot gear survey - What are your favorite's?

I can confirm that wearing my neon lime HAZ shirt near bee swarming water fountains attracts 'em. I get stung a few times a year. None have been random. Rather when I unknowingly disturb them.

If the hiker has a fauna username, is the hunt fair game?

Add 3.2 miles to the approach for large group permits. Virtually impossible to enforce; like all.

Re: Route Scout - Downloaded map issue

kill it
App switcher - swipe RS up

However, that only helps if the maps are initially viewable as previously mentioned.

Re: Route Scout - Downloaded map issue

Older tedious issue; Maps working off-line for the beginning of the hike then mysteriously disappear mid-hike. - Swiping RS closed and reopening works first try most of the time. No loss of recording. Obviously not optimal. There is a future fix in the works. andrewp iOS issue ; iOS 100% loaded, dir...

Re: Route Scout - Downloaded map issue

Debug in the lower right, immediately when experiencing would be helpful to resolve.

I've heard about it from several. Closing and reopening the app works for some but not all.

Re: Need Advice: Coming to Arizona

Shoshone looks impossible to beat it you do not want to go a quarter mile down a rim trail and prefer a dirt trail. I enjoyed arbitrary miles on https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=15770 from Bright Angel Trailhead then east but most here would rather die than admit they stepped foot on it. A fe...

@lancelyons1234 Midweek, you can probably get into the Bell Rock Trailhead. https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=8 is busy, but that's because it's pretty damn cool and not difficult.

Re: Brand new to HAZ as a member, Route Scout app question...

Dan, welcome to HAZ! Importing routes in RS auto-loads off-line topo-maps. The last imported route auto sets as the follow-route, which has a pin-to option to warn if off-track. The last 5 imported routes retain off-line maps. If going on multiple hikes, preload all and manually set the follow-route...

Oops, I am getting behind on my socklog journal. Darn tough keeping track. While one could triple-up for outdoor slippers, I've worn and used as intended. Four returns to date and the style occasionally changes. The past two batches were my favs. Thick, fluffy soft, and every use for nearly a year d...

Re: Drive time on FR143 from Hwy 87 to Lone Pine trailhead?

@herdbull
About an hour from the turnoff.
Thought the west was 15 min more + more miles, the trade-off is less nerve-wracking, but I couldn't find where I jotted that down.
