Re: FR 172 & 172A to Rogers Trough TH

Ok. That's helpful. Thank you. Just waiting for anyone to say: don't do it. I hate to say it, but since I drove out-n-back today on FR172 for ~6 miles to hike in from https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=739 , I have never seen FR172 in such bad shape (imbedded raised rocks, some sharp rocks, su...

Consider yourself extremely lucky if you do view a bear within this Cabin Loop "hiking/camping area" of our Mogollon Rim.

Re: 1-night backpacking near FR300

It would be awesome for more foliage in the area, but beggars can't be choosers! One question regarding driving from PHX. I need to approach from the 87 as Hwy 260 does not connect to this parking area via Rim Road 300, correct? If you would like prime Autumn colors (Big Tooth Maple/Aspen) the last...

Re: Have you lost or almost lost your GPS?

I purchased my first Garmin GPS Receiver in Year 2008 , a new and then very popular 60CSx. I lost it on an eleven hour Mazatzal Wilderness Bushwhack Death March with HAZ- topohiker in May-2009 attempting to hike the then impossible "Davey Gowen Tr / Deer Creek Tr" Loop. Assuming it was lost for ever...

Re: Have you lost or almost lost your GPS?

Every time I hiked with him he carried two. Interesting. He must have discontinued carrying two sometime before I started hiking with him in early 2010. I know the day he disappeared on 11/8/2010 hiking in from the Mount Peeley TH, that he had his then newer Garmin 62s with him. His son later gave ...

Re: Garmin GPSMAP 64

I know that a cheap Android phone could do the same (and more), but I'd like to understand the travails of the transition. Dang, I wish I had thought of that line "travails of transition" as it sounds much more positive than my being just "resistant to change" :) I actually use both Garmin "BaseCam...

Re: Garmin GPSMAP 64

I've never used anything except my 62ST & loaded it with 24K maps, WEST & SOUTHWEST. You can answer a question I could not in my last reply message 9/11pm: Since you own a GPSMAP 62st, it came with the Garmin 100k USA Topo Maps. Does Garmin load these maps into the device memory or did they provide...

Re: Garmin GPSMAP 64

I'm having trouble ascertaining which model doesn't require the $100-$200 additional cost for maps. Their website is very vague. Which one is good to go as-is in your opinion? I did not want to leave you hanging on this since you asked but my previous reply message/comments still apply. My recommen...

Re: Garmin GPSMAP 64

I recommend an android phone. For less money you get a larger screen. You can download all the maps you want for free. Plus it comes with a camera! You can play music too. Plus other useful apps. You don't need to activate it as a phone. I spent 3 seconds researching, this looks great. I'm sure the...

@LosDosSloFolks The vanilla GPSMAP 64 does not come with any topo maps installed: "Adding more maps to GPSMAP 64 is easy with our array of detailed topographic*, marine and road maps.
