Re: Bell on a Bicycle

I prefer a warning...but on a recent SoMo hike i had a biker and later a runner pass me so fast (from behind) that all I could do was freeze and hope they knew what they were doing. Made no sense to be moving at that rate on a busy weekend. Frankly I can't remember if either gave a warning but they ...

Re: A Refreshing NPR blurb

I heard part of that story yesterday...and I wondered if it was the same pot he'd written about before in Canyonlands. I was sort of puzzled by the whole thing since it sounded recently recorded but I thought his kids were older now and he and his wife had split. Was it an old story? Google didn't a...

Re: The Hike Book

Yeah local hiking books can be fun to thumb through and/or fun to make fun of. But if you know how to use HAZ you don't need 'em.

Re: FR 41/FR 37: New River Mountain HP

I've also pondered that area (there's gotta be some ancient stuff up there). I've picked around the edges (from the north and east) but it's a long way to the high point. Cook's Mesa is big! ASU Aviator's route using a quad made a lot of sense or, as I suggested at the time, a Topohiker-type 30mi wa...

Re: Should ruins or caves on public land be secrets?

As someone who spends a lot of time looking for "obscure" ruins and petroglyph sites I'm attuned to what google searching can do. If I can find directions to the site or a location with an internet search then it's not really obscure (and probably already "over-exposed" and hence not so interesting ...

Re: Looking for interconnecting trail maps

Joe I also use and really like that feature to find hikes or routes in a selected area. But just this weekend I was looking for the old summary maps with trails I remember seeing (e.g. Superstitions, SoMo, etc)...but I couldn't find them. Obsolete or am I not looking in the right place?

Re: What's the best GPS?

A vote from another phone luddite: Garmin Etrex20. Simple and fairly cheap, it easily uploads and downloads with HAZ without an intermediary. When mine wore out (buttons) recently, I bought another. Batteries last several trips...just carry a spare pair of AAs.

Ran across this in my Google News feed and thought it was interesting, and maybe not just to me.

Hayduke Trail documentary

Watched the new documentary "Figuring it out on the Hayduke Trail" on Amazon Prime. Includes sections of the northern AZT and a couple Grand Canyon routes. I'm thinking a lot of HAZzers would enjoy it too.

That wasn't me, I was just off-stage....I'll be curious if the word "zipfizz" (which I'd never heard of before ) brings these guys to mind to everyone on this thread (as unfortunately it does for me!).

Re: Hiking vehicles

I'll get my 3rd Outback soon. For recent daytrips I've been doing (400+ miles and "substantial" off road challenges) I really think it's a good choice. I had about 6-7 yrs of tire griping (available tires couldn't stand up to rocks) until I got a tip from ssk44. Continental TerrainContacts solved th...

Re: Jet Crash Death Valley NP

wow that's some video...dangerous stuff but what are the odds that a crash would injure bystanders in that big desert area? I have a clear memory from 40 yrs ago, standing along a road in that area while hitchhiking to DV, and noticing a couple fighter jets across the valley. They turned and came st...
