Hoka One Speed Goat 4 My wife and I love these shoes. They have a knobby Vibram sole, great traction. We get a couple years out of them.

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

@LindaAnn I'm not going to argue with you over your opinion. But let me tell you from first hand knowledge no human should be out there when these heat related rescues happen. I maintain Phoenix's rescue helicopter and have seen it launch more than once above 105. Last rant why would want to hike a...

Hiking Hoka Speed Goats. These babies have a legit Vibram sole
The best for water is a breathable shoe. Then put on aqua socks with a pair of wool socks over the top. This comes from canyoneering community.

Re: Royal Arch Route, AZ. Rappel and upclimb options.

My 2 cents, we used the knotted rope the rafters left there. That was in 2018, I would still take 20 ish foot of static rope and maybe a light speed harness. No need to over kill it

Re: Hiking etiquette with dogs

Please put your dog on a leash when hiking on an established trail. Very few people have voice control over their dog, so don't even bother telling me you do. Unless your a licensed K-9 trainer or had formal training, it takes months of practice to train a dog and owner. Ask your self, have you done...

Re: FS 211 - Reavis Trailhead - North

I'm assuming every one knows you can't get to Reavis north from Tortilla Flats. You have to come from the other direction. If I'm wrong, please correct me.

Re: East Desert Fire

So the airplanes drop retardant or preloaded water. The helicopters drop water, we have a bouy wall or we find a resource to get water. Maybe your pool.
Our helos can drop 130 gal at a shot.

Re: The Jug Salome Wilderness

James Canyon is a good primer. Off trail approach and exit,plenty of water (cold as sh**), easy rappels. It will give you a real sense of what canyoneering is all about.

Re: What's your jam?

Listen to music when exercise hiking is fine. But not when in the wild or hiking with a group not such a good idea. Hear is my story: I was leading a group backpack several years ago, I was very clear that if you come to any intersection to stop and wait on me. A young lady in the group had her head...
