Re: Hikers left 'uncomfortable' after encountering man jogging in pink thong

Comments from some of my contacts watching surveillance cameras near the border---one 24 hour feed sped up. Cows, drug dealers with huge packs, some general illegal traffic, naked hikers. The norm for that area.

Re: What's in your first aid kit?

Might pick a couple of those up. Got into a wasp nest about a month ago and got 8 stings, I am not allergic but it really hurt enough for an hour or so to get my attention. I didn't have any benadryl with me either, my usual go to. One bite irritated me for a week or so after too. So sucking out tha...

Re: Water filters/purifiers

Aqua mira for the bladder, boil if using for morning coffee or preparing rehydrated meals. On longer dayhikes if I can remember I'll throw a Lifestraw in the pack just in case. Haven't carried a filter/purifier in years.

Re: Hiking vehicles

Traded in my long suffering 2007 FJ for a pretty 2014 FJ mall crawler. Wow, forgot what a clean well cared vehicle that doesn't see dirt looks like. It's quicksand color, I like it. Got a pretty good deal since my old one needs a clutch, a windshield, a paint job, having issues with a possible leak ...

Re: What's Your Favorite Color

Tie Dye with mainly a red base with brown, rust then royal blue mix. seriously thinking about painting the white jeep to look as if it's been paint balled. Would take it to the south side and pay, turn loose a bunch of taggers on it but I am afraid it would get all kinds of gang symbols and I would ...

Re: Need a ride

It's not for everyone, but I enjoy my solo hikes, backpacks, drives, etc. For me it's the freedom to move at my own pace, and if something draws me I go see it, or stop, or take a picture. If I want to camp early and read; I can. I had a partner at one time I enjoyed my trips with, but solo is reall...

Re: Need a ride

I've hitchhiked all over southern Utah with no problem, dirt roads a lot better for no nonsense rides than pavement but it works. Just don't get in if you get that "feeling". Or great conversation pieces " oh, I just got off from deployment with special forces" or, " gosh, this shoulder holster is s...

Re: Hiking vehicles

Get a 4wd vehicle that will be a beater but is reliable. Then you also won't worry about leaving it at a TH. Toyota's are generally good for that, and will last for many years with just routine maintenance. Unless you are really rich-----spoke to a Jeep owner today who estimates there is a 150K in h...

Jet Crash Death Valley NP

Unfortunate to say the least loss of pilot and some onlookers apparently slightly injured by debris. Crash occurred in Rainbow also known as Star Wars canyon beneath an overlook, a common flight area for training. I've watched quite a few jets fly by there. Here is a link for an incredible Sidewinde...

Re: Hiking vehicles

My Jeep is going into shop next week for lift, suspension mods and 37 inch Cooper STT pro tires ( 10 ply). I've got some really bad mining roads in my near future and I plan to drive the majority before I put on the pack.

Certainly monsoon like but not gaining traction with the weather folks. Fires near Sonoita and one near the Hellsgate north of Nogales. Thunder yesterday evenin...

Re: Tucson backpacking

Galiuros are the best for some nice backpacking loops without crowds if you avoid hunting season. FYI, make sure and bear proof your food. They just relocated another black bear to there from south of here that was getting into peoples garbage near Rio Rico I think. So it's habituated to "people" fo...

Re: Gila NF near Alma, NM / Mogollon mtns

"Hiking New Mexico's Gila Wilderness" is the Falcon guide by Cunningham and Burke. It's pretty good but as has been said pre- fire. I hiked a few years back in the Whitewater Baldy, Redstone area that was heavily impacted by fire. Besides being ugly in part, some rough trail conditions and lots of d...

Re: Backpacking supes solo, 1st time

You will probably do fine as long as you don't let your mind mess with you and just relax and enjoy. I've hiked and backpacked and driven many a lonely dirt road solo. It's not a lot of people's cup of tea but I thrive on the areas I go that I see no one, sometimes for days. It's the most free I hav...

Crater area is cool, lots of areas adjacent to DVNP that are pretty darn neat, and fortunately not overrun nor featured on Instagram.
