Later in the day I visited See Canyon after a hail storm and heavy rainfall. I just went to the first crossing and did not go further due to potential of flash flooding

You had 5 inches so far in Payson? I still don't see how there can be that much and no rise in Roosevelt. Perhaps the winter snow and rain will bring more storage this year.
The Payson basin drains into the East Verde and or Verde.

Re: Tent pole repair

I have a friend who bicycle tours that uses a Delrin one piece rod for his Eureka Solitaire tent. When riding he attaches the rod to his rear rack and attaches a bright orange flag to it.

Re: Car/Overland camping set ups

Looked at various campers and preferred a popup when I replaced my popup a couple of years ago. Wanted something that I could take into the back country unlike my previous camper. I use the camper as a base camp and its a Jumping Jack 6' x 8' model. Had it out the past week.

Tent pole repair

Used a small crochet hook to remove the knot at the end of a tent pole so I can replace the elastic cord in the tent poles. My backpacking tents use 1/8 " cord and is sold as bungee cord.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Expected more rain mid morning so opted for range time target shooting the Bear 64 Kodiak and the Bear 69 Grizzly. Nice breeze with a very light sprinkle and explored some jeep trails later in the day with light showers.

Backpack the Arizona Trail from Flagstaff South to AZ 87. If you night hike Sunset Crater turn off your head lamp, it attracts the park service police :D .

Re: Printing Arizona Trail topo maps

I utilize USGS 7.5 min topo maps and make copies of them and then draw my planned routes that I may obtain info from several sources. I then make another copy of my edited map and leave a copy with trip plans with someone.
