Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

@Alston_Neal
Our two cats, who I feed everyday, jump for joy when they see my wife and one sits on her lap 24/7. They both avoid me.

Re: Overheard at the Outlet Shoe Store

@Alston_Neal
Yep...new pair of Merrell Moabs...seem OK. I still hold Merrell responsible for some clearance shoes I bought a couple years ago which caused some annoying foot damage until I found the right insert. I might take 'em out to try K3-K8.

Overheard at the Outlet Shoe Store

Salesperson: " So you're going to Nepal...that's awesome" Customer: "Yes we can't wait....do you think these shoes are good enough?" S: "Yeah...I mean you're not doing Everest or K.....or K..."

I'd add that the last few miles the rocks get worse - tough on tires -take it slow and try to miss the sharp ones.

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

@Oregon_Hiker OK I see....you use Basecamp but transfer to GPS manually via File Explorer. I used to do that but would usually send information between Basecamp and the GPS via Basecamp interface (it can see both your computer's and GPS's storage areas). But having switched to "no Basecamp" (all fi...

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

@Oregon_Hiker Reads a little ambiguous Larry....you've not had a problem? The question of purging the old tracks is definitely tied to this. If you (or I) only carry along "the hike of the day" then it is easy to verify in advance that the GPS sees it in Track Manager, without the long list problem...

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

Thanks for all the ideas and comments. One correction to my OP...I do put then in the Garmin's memory (not external microSD....I don't even have one...I was confused by the greater memory of the 20x over 20). I can say it's not a problem with too many tracks (I know that one...have hit it before). A...

Annoying Garmin problem

I know this a Route Scout zone but I don't use a smart phone so I rely on my Etrex 20x (recent replacement for a worn out etrex 20). Last weekend, I copied 3 official HAZ tracks into the gpx folder on its microSD card, but at the trailhead they did not appear. This annoys me, in part because it's ha...

Re: New Book: Chasing Centuries

That's excellent...congratulations. I need to get that book. I have little faith that I can assimilate enough that it would help, but I often find myself noticing agaves and wondering whether they are descendants of ancient cultivated ones, unusual for their location, or just pretty.

I look at my numbers as often as I look at my weight (never). Judge it by the notches in my belt and how my knees feel. ;-)

Re: Bobcat sighting

@DixieFlyer I'm guessing you live N or E of downtown PHX? I've heard that bobcats are more common that way. In SE valley where I live (Ahwatukee) coyotes and javelina are common and I have seen a fox on my back wall but I've never seen or heard of bobcats around here. I'm curious if anyone has ever...

Re: Hiking vehicles

@chumley Well that's complicated decision based on how many $$ you allocate for your car indulgence. Until recently I had company lease cars that never went over ~50K. I was surprised that blue book for an Outback with 120K is not bad and would make a pretty good dent in the price of a newer replac...

Re: Home owner yelling at hiker on Hawes Trail Loop Mesa AZ

My take is a little different from most here. If you perceive this guy as a bad guy who needs to be put in his place, sure, do it. But if you perceive this guy as someone with a disorder that he's handling poorly then trolling him could end badly for everyone.

Instagram and fatalities

I've seen various comments on this site about social media publicizing cool outdoors places, which then attracts the masses - sometimes with bad results. I just read this article which shows an interesting example of it. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/14/nyregion/kaaterskill-falls-catskills-deaths-...
