Re: 2020 Presidential Debate

Watched a little of their last one, reminded me of two old guys arguing over the last box of Depends at a WalMart.

Re: Favorite Multi Tool?

Still have the original ones from when they first came out, both were Christmas Gifts from coworkers at the fire department. One of them left in a ruin in the Sierra Ancha's and recovered later.

Re: Horse Fire

The night before the fire started, I observed a meteorite fly by overhead from a ridge South of Payson to the direction of where the fire first started.

Re: Headlamp Alternative - Waist Lamp ?

I utilize a headlight and sometimes use a second light attached to my shoulder straps with velcro. This light may be another headlamp or an angle head flashlight.

Re: Sears Fire

I think the smoke is from the Sears Fire that was taken this evening up near the Payson Airport.

Re: Hanging Up The Spurs

Not there yet, just hang up retired packs though I will admit that it helps to use glasses when reading the compass dial.

In the past I would leave early enough to get a short night hike and have breakfast at first light but lately my appointments have been in the morning.

I have encountered to many folks (thirst buster hikers) asking if I have any extra water so I usually have a couple of bottles of water in the pack.

Re: Monsoon On The Way!!

Cicada's are singing in the Payson area, not sure if they are looking for a mate or serenading the Native Americans harvesting acorns. Quite cloudy in the early afternoon. Going to miss driving up Mount Ord for the storms.
