Re: HAZ Window Decal: Whose looks best? (-:

The batch is too old. The overlay mask isn't easily removable without destroying the decal. Good to know! I was going to offer @DixieFlyer my spare HAZ decal from your original HAZ batch from Aug-Sept'09 but maybe not a good idea :) (in the original mailed envelope at USPS 1st Class Postage $.44)

Re: Mazatzal Wilderness Info Sought

@stevebo Depends on conditions: https://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=176662 I recommend high-clearance. You wouldn't need 4wd unless the road is damaged or very muddy or snowy. It can be done in a sedan sometimes, but I wouldn't count on it being in sedan condition at any given time. This same sec...

All the forest roads on the east side of Highway 87 were blocked or posted "keep out", but all the roads on the west side looked to be open. The Rim Road (FR300) is not presently closed for driving access, correct? MRRD Press Release UPDATES (copied/pasted segments) at 6/9/19: Current closures: Non...

OK, reporting back! I got gaiters for like $50 and they're no problem at all to wear -at least for me. I cinch them over my boots at the bottom and keep them loose at the top. That's it. I wonder what the snake strike deterrent difference is between a $50.00 pair and Oregon_Hiker's recommend $150.+...
