Re: Hydration - Water isn't the best

Who cares where lager falls on the list, I want to know where a good ale lies. I'm also curious where spring water is ranked. Also, what about stock tank water, I'm usually pretty darn thirsty when I need to drink it?

Re: Water filters/purifiers

The Grayl bottle/filter weighs 16.25 oz when empty. Today I purified 48 oz of water & wound up drinking 42 oz of that water. The maximum weight of the Grayl Purifier & the 16 oz of water I added was 2.25#. What I especially like about the Grayl Purifier is, No pumps, hoses, chemicals, or batteries ...

Re: Water filters/purifiers

@Mountain_Rat For back flushing the Sawyers, I recommend just using a Smart Water Bottle sport cap. They come with the 700ml bottles and fit the clean end of the Sawyer filters perfectly. I keep one on the end of my filter and my filter on a 1L bottle for dirty water. Works great, actually much bet...

Re: Water filters/purifiers

I have an MSR Mini Works also but it's heavy at a pound, as is the Grayl Geopress. Currently I use a Sawyer Squeeze . It's light, about 3 oz., inexpensive, and effective though it doesn't remove viruses but those really aren't an issue anywhere in the US. I got the Sawyer Squeeze after I realized I ...

Re: River Fire

Black Mesa is connected to New River Mesa at the southern end with a saddle. Yep, I've been up Black Mesa and over the saddle: https://hikearizona.com/x.php?x=137922 . I've been on New River Mesa a couple of other times too, once from the 41 near West Point and another up the road from the NE side ...

Isn't Black Mesa pretty small and just off New River Mesa which is much larger?

Card transaction fees for government agencies in Arizona are only 1.5%.
But a lot of times there is also a per transaction fee on top of that, such as 39 cents or so. All this is per agreements with the financial gateway. So who knows how accurate any of this speculation is.

Re: What kind of mileage are you getting

Someone with some level of maturity will steer this thread back in the correct direction. Or not. I've been using Altra Lone Peaks for the past four years. I have to say that I'm not seeing the mileage with the 4.0s as I did with the 3.0s and 3.5s. My current pair has just over 400 miles and is sho...

Re: Proposed fee changes for Mogollon Rim campgrounds

a fee increase and fee implementation is needed to continue site improvements
What improvements will be continued? I kind of doubt any improvements have been in progress for awhile now.

Re: Where to park and ride in Apache Trail

Oh come on people, there's no issue with riding a bike along the whole length of the Apache Trail. Fish Creek hill wouldn't be a problem at all; taking a bicycle on it doesn't even compare to pulling a boat along it. What is the purpose of throwing out stupid ignorant comments instead of trying to a...
