Re: Grand Canyon Bucket List

I'm amazed that you made a video to better explain the process. HAZ does indeed Rock. Today every time I click Areas it does exactly what it's supposed to. The two arrows must have become bored chasing each other. Now I just have to update my GC completed - I'm not sure why it only shows the Deer Cr...

Re: Grand Canyon Bucket List

@joebartels I've tried a few days in a row, but all I get is two arrows chasing each other in a circle. I've been able to navigate to the GCNP areas list several different ways, and the map option works, but that's it. It looks like what you are describing would work great, I hope it's something si...

Grand Canyon Bucket List

Has anyone put together something like an Excel Spreadsheet that lists all of the Grand Canyon trails, with distance, AEG, difficulty, water access, etc.? I think it would be a great tool if you could sort and rearrange all on one document. I'm considering putting one together, and would share it he...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline Loop

@Tough_Boots I thought I replied to this days ago, but now I don't see it. Is that what you want to do? I don't understand what you are suggesting. The Battleship and the Ridgeline are on my bucket list, and our shop closes for a week during the holidays - I take what I can get. I also am not a fan ...

Superstition Ridgeline Loop

I'm in the planning stages for a 2-3 night backpack around the end of the year and was hoping to pick the collective HAZ brain. So far I'm parking at the Lost Dutchman, hiking to First Water, bagging Battleship, camp, heading south on Boulder Canyon, then to Peralta to Fremont Saddle, camp, then off...

Re: 6th Annual New Year's Day Hike

Some things have come up, and I was on the edge of cancelling - the rain forecast just made it a little easier. I can blame the weather. :oops: I'm sure whoever makes it will find the company warm and the bubbly cold - unless someone thinks of hot chocolate! Thanks again Pam for the effort - enjoy. ...

Re: Weighing weight miles

The Hiking Science formula posted by lindaagm using calories burned seems like a good way to measure effort.

Re: Bucket List

maybe he'll take me on my first Trip below the Rim! Unless you beat me there I certainly will. I know you love water, but that requires a lot of AEG. I recall suggesting Horseshoe Mesa - easy by GCNP standards, but it has ruins, a mine, Cave of the Domes, a very comfy latrine, and views that will e...

Re: Bucket List

Wow, I only waited 24 hours and the thread is already off course. ;) The vast majority of the partners were the result of one HAZfest and Pam's New Years Day hikes. I've tried to be social, but am not particularly good at it. Of course there are exceptions - James and Pam both seem to tolerate me pr...

Bucket List

When we moved here 15 years ago, I was sure I would get to the Canyon at least once a year. I've only managed 9 trips. (I was going to insert ](*,) , but changed my mind - 9 trips are priceless.) But it did occur to me that I'm somewhat behind schedule on hiking all the major trails. I'm 52 and feel...

Re: On what hike in AZ have you been the most nervous

Also my first time up Brown's Peak - in the snow - once on top, I was pretty freaked about having to descend what we had just climbed Same here. I solo'd up Brown's and on the way down I got off course on the wet, cold, slippery rock. I decided to try climbing back up the increasingly steep slope f...

Re: Rain Gear?

I'm with Joe on umbrellas - my Go Lite is both light and strong, and most of the time it allows you to do things rain gear would never let you (photography, cooking, watercolor paintings, etc.). The downside is high winds, when it can yank you around and still not keep you dry. It also gets as much ...

@Outdoor Lover
Unless your cookies are exceptionally heavy, I plan on bagging the Trio for those interested.
The amount of bubbly that will be left for the final high point is not entirely certain. :GB:

If you don't want to go early, Barrett has already offered the back of the Taco Widowmaker got shotgun, so we'll be arriving at the pavements end around 8:30. We'll hang around till maybe 8:40 for anyone wanting an open air shuttle to the "trailhead". (Unless I hear from Pam whether 20 minutes is c...
