Re: What do you do for a living??

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.

I have Mon off and have to get a permit for the upcoming fall winter stuff in the western part of the state. Think I'll drive to Ajo to get it and hope to see some rain.

Re: Tour of the Borderlands

Well, nobody wants to hike with me, not that I blame them. Heading out in a few minutes, High temps Nogales predicted at 82 degrees 50% chance of t storms. Got spanked down here last night. Should be awesome in several places as to water, hopefully not too much flooding on the road to get there.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Got slammed last night briefly, but standing water in yard and streets were running. Approaching was quite beautiful, the setting sun turning the rain orange and a weird rainbow/ sun dog in it briefly. No pics as roofs of houses obscured part of it.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

All it needs is for a nice rainmaker to park itself over one area. Fri nite Nogales calls for 1-2 inches of rain, not a lot as dry as it's been but I can hope. I'll just be glad to get wet!
