@SamDaOgre

The AZT is not all "desert". I believe there's a good 8,000 feet of elevation between the low and high points-- so think versatility.

@foxhazel
What I've learned about hammocks is that people like me who don't "hang" are always surprised at how successful experienced hammock folks are in areas that would appear impossible at first glance.

Maybe a pro like @te_wa will respond with some good info.

Re: SPOT 2

I use the ACR ResQlink. You can find it for under $300. No subscription, 10x's stronger than a Spot, and the battery is good for 7 years. It's only an SOS beacon so it won't send out messages to your loved ones. I'd rather have signal strength than messaging. If you want the messaging capabilities, ...

Re: Possible AZT thru-hike in Spring 2019

Response: I understand that the Southern area is a network of trails because of undocumented people streaming up from the border and going different directions like fan--thereby confusing those wishing to stay on THE AZT. Some hikers have gone off-course even with the app. Sounds like excuses for p...

I'm surprised that has never been republished at least as an ebook-- it's an essential title. I believe Puma Press is actually Michael Ghiglieri-- I wonder what the story is.

The Red Cross would show up to the dorms about once a month when I was in college. We'd give blood and then go do shots. It was awesome :y:

That seems to be changing. You can get growler pours at quite a few convenient stores now and microbrews at chain restaurants. Craft beer has been mainstream for a while now-- I love the accessibility of quality beer.

Yup... you can access 300 from the 260 if you want to hike anything up there in Apache-Sitgreaves-- except Promontory.

Re: 2018 Fire Season

I just wish jerks would stop lighting things on fire. Then everyone could enjoy the outdoors even when it is dry. It's not that simple. All sorts of things can set fire when it's dry enough. One fire this year started because a chain from someone's trailer threw a spark when it hit the road. A mont...

Looks open to me.

Call the ranger station to be sure but from the closure maps it doesn't appear that the Blue Range is part of the closure area.

Re: 2018 Fire Season

Glad to see them announce the exact location of where the fire began-- they might actually catch someone. Looks like it must have been backpackers camped below the Sycamore Basin Trail about a mile NE of the Junction with Dogie-- about 2.5 miles from the Taylor Cabin (by trail). 34°58'21.0"N 112°00'...
