Day Pack Weight

"That's why my day pack always weighs 20 pounds or more" Now I don't feel so bad about my day hiking pack weighing about 20 plus pounds. It seems like no matter how hard I try to lighten it up, all those little what if I need safety items keep getting put back in and the weight just stays the same. ...

Arizona Summer Hiking Safety

In response to salish's reply: The aluminum foil foot print is recommended for hikers with children but also works great for adults. A good flash lite is something else that everyone should have in the event that a day hike turns into a night hike back to your vehicle. If you have a GPS, mark your ...

Summer Hikes in Arizona

It sounds like you are going to be more prepared than most out of state hikers that we deal with. I am a member of the Cochise County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue Team and I doubt you will have any problems, but try to stay above 7000 ft for most of your hiking. The heat in late June is ab...

Sorry to come across so mean or negative, you guys. But I did meet and talk to the guy, and the thing with those poor ladies he was guiding, especially the heavy-set one, did rub us the wrong way, and basically prejudiced us against him. I'm sure he has a lot of really good tips--which is why I did...

Re: begining hiker looking for female or group partners.

In response to yoadrienneaz's reply: If you want to try some day hikes in Cochise County, just get in touch with us. I know that is a bit far from Mesa, but when the weather starts warming up in that area, it is still quite cool down here. My wife and I and one of my female Search and Rescue team m...

Re: Missing Cesna

Most small planes that are lost in remote areas are found in thick wooded sections that are off from trails or roads and at times not all that far.... The sad truth is that these planes can stay missing for many years. A plane of similar size went down this year on a little mountain near my home in...

Missing Cesna

Most small planes that are lost in remote areas are found in thick wooded sections that are off from trails or roads and at times not all that far.

Bassett Peak 11/05/06 Hike Joe Bartels Finds Cell Phone

Joe, Thanks for finding my friend's cell phone. We enjoyed meeting all of the people that were up there and although I was in the canyon below Bassett Peak all day with a friend looking for some WWII aircraft wreckage, my wife and her friend enjoyed everyone that they met on the trail. I have spent ...
