Push the button and the locker light would still be lit, sometimes had to stop, slowly creep forward or back to get it to release. Getting into and out of 4-lo is going somewhat better now that is has...

Re: Upper Fish Creek Vandals

Yes, many morons in the world. Also you could contact one of the local caving grottos in Phoenix, CAG, members have done multi site clean ups usually using a wet sandblaster type thing but I am sure use other things. They have done multiple clean ups in Peppersauce, a loosing battle IMO, but a worth...

Re: looking for a challenging multi-day backpack trip in S. AZ

The Galiuros can get snow and a lot of it under the right conditions. Just check the weather of course. And take good cold weather gear, the Garden can be a cold air sink in Feb.

Re: Gila Wilderness Backpacking in Spring

Years ago did a Turkey Creek, Granny Mtn, Gila River loop that was pretty nice. Trail was a bit vague on Granny mtn, Side trip up or down Turkey with a day pack is recommended ( above the hot springs, but that area is nice too). According to guide book about 46 miles recommended 6-8 days but I think...

However maybe clutch or an idler bearing issue or both. Took it to Parashant but I was worried enough had a clutch kit I purchased a while back and ...

Re: What do you do for a living??

If all goes well I will be retired by Nov 1, 2019. Then look out!! Actually I plan to join the local historical society, and take some community college classes on Archeology and Geology so I can be a little more cognizant of my surroundings. But not if it interferes with the hiking! And, I would li...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Wow , just got home about a half hour ago and a microburst or something here. Hail piled up all over, the roads flooded and the main wash with brown rapids in it. Going down to mom's house to see how her place fared. I have some vegetation around the yard that looks pretty beat up with the hail.

Re: Tent pole repair

Actually I am trying out my winter, wet, sort of bad weather set up to see how it does. If it doesn't work, I'll not be too far from car or just get in a mine tunnel with the snakes.
