Re: 2021 Fire Season

@rustyshackleford135 Her, meaning the mentally ill woman or the HAZ poster? Ill means ill. If you haven't been around someone who gradually became mentally ill, you wouldn't know how insidious mental illness can be. It often does present itself in late 20s. The person goes from being a loved friend...

Mental illness is not the same as being stupid. I really take issue with this. This woman is possibly very sick and probably on drugs, yet you wish to pass judgment on her IQ.

If someone has colon cancer we feel sorry for them. If they are mentally ill we scorn them?

I read that as well. I think there are several points. She worked very hard for those college degrees, yet threw her career away. Why would anyone do that? Probably due to a mental illness of some kind.

I eat that combo all the time, although I've mostly switched to kayak or bike travel. Also, Annie Chun's noodle bowls, plus a chicken packet. (Get rid of bowl.) Very tasty.

No, I went there for a WFR recert. One of the best instructors in the field, Darren "Daz" Stokes. As for fun, I paddled in a lake, rode my bike through the railroad tunnels, and did a very short hike.

I've heard about that. I was in Buena Vista just before Memorial Day, and managed to escape west just in time to avoid the rush.

Re: Tent pole repair

@tibber
According to Dave Baker of the Summit Hut, the shock cord will last longer if you begin your folding of the poles in the middle of the pole rather than on one end. This will not help your current problem, but could prolong the cord function in future for you.

@garyc57 These are probably the most notable tornadoes I've heard of in Arizona. Bellemont, Oct. 2010. They are not the only ones that have caused damage. But I don't feel like doing a big old Google search. https://azdailysun.com/news/local/bellemont-becomes-tornado-alley/article_5572745f-2d40-5bd...

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

@Canyonram You should have said shuttle bus. Tour companies are not allowed to take their guests hiking without a specific permit that comes with their concession contract, with stipulations. A tour company is not allowed to drop off a bunch of people and tell them to walk down Bright Angel Trail. ...

Re: Benham Trail closed through January 22

@chumley Ach! I missed my window to hike it this year. And last year it was pretty much closed the entire summer. There might have been a short time when it was open but I missed that too. When I used to live in Williams, a few times I saw how a huge thunderstorm could flood that town. If that wate...
