Why not do the Canyon if you've never been to AZ?

You might be able to pick up a walk in permit for some campgrounds, I can't imagine they're sold out during a cold holiday weekend. Even if they are you could just do a rim-river-rim hike...you said you liked the intense stuff right?

Rock Climb / Rappel Class

At different times, people have posted questions about learning to rock climb / rappel. Well, the Arizona Mountaineering Club has its Fall class starting up next week. This is a great group of professionals to learn the proper (and safe) techniques from: http://www.azmountaineeringclub.org/main/clas...

How coincidental that you just posted this. I just got a day hiking permit for next Tuesday. I'm going to show up early and see if I can snag an unclaimed overnight tag, if not I'll try to do the summit in a day hike (weather permitting).

One thing I never forget to bring is a large brimmed hat! Behind Australlia, Arizona is second in the world when it comes to skin cancer. If I've got an early morning start or late evening finish, I'll just put it in my pack, but any other time during the day I've got it on my head. They don't weigh...

You're side stepping the issue Matt. Read line 2 and line 6 of the Scout oath, it's very clear.

Great web page Billy. I believe you've gotten to the heart of the matter...do you believe in God's Word or do you not. If you do, then the Word is clear on the subject of homosexuality. The Scouts are specific in what their value system is, as evidenced by the Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my be...

Should hiking nude be allowed in public lands? No. Should walking down the street nude be allowed? Why not? Same thing. It all boils down to "when do your freedoms begin to infringe upon mine". I contend that you walking around naked offends me. Do I have a choice in whether I see this? Not if you'r...

We don't agree with the Scouts policy toward gays. It's not right, and it's discriminatory. I know, I know, they are a private organization and can set their own rules, and that's their choice. But I have a hard time with the idea of supporting an organization with that type of attitude toward peop...

All this talk about who's "knowledgeable and responsible", and who's tip toeing on dandy lions is beginning to sound a tad elitist.

On a side note, check this from the paper yesterday:

I'm surprised that this even comes up as a topic. Are the Boy Scouts a good thing? Have you looked around the country lately? These are some of the few groups left that teach kids such lofty life principles as: integrity, leadership, honesty, trust, goal setting, respect, teamwork, leadership (have ...

Re: Off-Trail

If you are a knowledgeable and a responsible hiker, Get Off Trail. If you're a knowledgeable and responsible hiker...please stay ON the trail.
