Re: Grand Canyon Summits Book

@SpiderLegs
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.

Re: Blood Donation?

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...

That's closed.
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.

I think anyone who was legitimately attacked by a jaguar would have reported it first-- not skinned it.

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'...

I'd rather know to expect closures and be able to come up with alternative plans than be blindsided I guess.

Re: 2018 Fire Restrictions

Tonto has announced that they will close "two areas" starting Wed. morning, May 23rd ... but when you click on the link there is no map of the closure. The wording on their Facebook is all future tense leading me to believe their closure order isn't ready for release yet-- same situation as Apache-...

Re: Changing Hands & AZW Brewing present Craig Childs - May 15th

I don't think these two things are mutually exclusive. Not always but quite often they need to be. Trying to understand is fine but if you have to understand someone else's "whatever" to accept it then you're really just making it about you. You shouldn't have to "relate" to someone to accept them.

People like different things because different things resonate with different people. Signed books, antique fans, typewriters, stamps, Pyrex, Instagram likes, numbered peaks, benchmarks, sports. Who gives a poo? Being able to accept often shows more strength of character than trying to understand. C...

There's some stoned 19 year olds in a dorm room somewhere having a very similar conversation and doing a much better job at it.

Funny thing about understanding others-- you need to consider viewpoints outside of your own. 🤣
