Re: Best Backpacking Libation

I was really into brewing beer a few years ago, but let it go after seeing that the brewing of beer and the growing of the stomach as not conducive with hiking, camping, and outdoor life. I still drink beer, but when you are brewing beer the quantities you end up with are staggering. At one point I ...

Re: Hiking with "tunes"...

I'll agree with the last few people that the "music" of the trail is in itself pretty nice. It's funny but you really have to get away from the headphones and pay attention to hear the sounds and things you are supposed to on a trail. It's quite at first, because we are used to louder things in the ...

Re: Tabacco products on the trail?

As hard as that is for everyone to believe, yes I only use them for tobacco. I have a nice English Blend called North Sea that is a custom blend at Blew Smoke tobacco shop in Gilbert. Even though you don't inhale the smoke, the nicotine hit from the pipe after a 30 min smoke is all the buzz you need...

Re: Verde River Trail

@kevinweitzel75 That doesn't sound good...I wouldn't think that people with horses would bushwhack either, but who knows with the effects of dehydration setting in, lack of food, lack of sleep too possibly, they could have been making bad decisions the whole way down the trip. It happens. Especiall...

Re: Tabacco products on the trail?

@Alston Neal That's exactly it, assuming you mean the Native Americans split the stem lengthwise. I split vertical grained pieces off the end of a flat sawn piece of wood that are about 18" long and 1/4" thick. I take one and run it through my table saw with the depth set to 1/8" so it cuts a chann...

Re: Verde River Trail

Thanks for the info, I wasn't able to find the articles you linked on my own, the only thing I found was a single posting by a member who never actually hiked the trail, just the first few miles of it. I'll check these out, I really appreciate it. I'll also look into travel times. I really don't wan...

Re: Best Backpacking Libation

I've brought 5th of Captain Morgan with me before on a trip. The problem was my friend and I split it on the first night. In all fairness it was a friend I hadn't seen in a while and our trip was as much of a good hang out as it was a hiking trip. We had a hell of a night around the fire, we ate, we...

Re: Tabacco products on the trail?

@Alston Neal Thank you very much. I was watching Lord of the Rings a couple months ago and I became interested in how they the pipes were made. I was trying to figure how they got the long hole through the bent stem and so forth. Long story short, I figured out a way to do it, so I cranked out abou...

Re: Guns on trails in others' hand.

I saw my name, and had to reply to this one. I carry a gun while I hike. It's heavy, odd shaped, cumbersome, the holster rubs my thigh raw sometimes, and in a good sun the black metal gets hot, which follows me around like a little heater I don't need. All that being said, it's still worth it. I don...

Re: New Prove-You're-A-Citizen law

@berkforbes I'm replying to you about your post for 2 reasons. One, I agree with you, and two my name is Forbes as well. I'm Brian Forbes, pleasure to meet you. I absolutely agree that being asked when stopped by law enforcement to show ID makes sense. And the guy who opened this thread has it wron...

Re: Tabacco products on the trail?

I hear everyone talking about smoking cigarettes, but no one has talked about pipe smoking. I have no objections to smoking a pipe on the road or on a break on the trail. In comparison with cigarettes, you aren't going to destroy your lung function by inhaling smoke since pipes are not meant to be i...

Re: Hiking with "tunes"...

I used to hike with my i-pod until I was tapped on the back by another hiker that I didn't even see or hear come up from behind me (and I was in such a remote area that I really and truly thought I was alone). I popped off my ear buds, and said I was sorry that I didn't hear him, and to have a nice ...

Verde River Trail

I saw the older threads on this, and no one that I saw actually did the trail route in question so I am re-posting this to see if anyone has any experiences to share on the Verde River Trail. I am thinking of making the trek in October/November, starting at the Twin Buttes Trail Head (the one outsid...
