That's awfully close. I haven't talked to Wade for quite a while now.

Probably not a lot of vitamin D to be had between 8pm and 5am. Just saying.

Re: East Desert Fire

@LosDosSloFolks
I saw all the smoke from it last evening winding up my MC ride. I was on Dove Valley Pkwy. I was wondering if Spur Cross was burning up, or even Cave Creek itself. I figured you'd post the scoop here.

Well, the obelisk is an actual border mark, are you proposing moving the border 25' north? There are many others along the border too, one I've seen by the northern terminus of the PCT.

Re: What's your jam?

The responses to my OP have really taken me pleasantly by surprise. I more or less was expecting a rant on, "The world's lightest, loudest, longest-lasting wearable Bluetooth speaker" and the follies of subjecting us to your pumpkin music. Cool. I will admit I don't listen to music hiking. While thr...

What's your jam?

What do you like to listen to when out hiking? Saw an ad for the noxgear 39g advertised as, "The world's lightest, loudest, longest-lasting wearable Bluetooth speaker." Currently offered for only $79.95.

That and bike tour companies offering a few hour guided rides, or however long a battery lasts.

Re: Motorized Electric Bikes On Trails

@sidhayes I really thing this is more about one's expectation than anything else. I rarely have any issues with cyclists on trail, yet others seem to have issues all the time. I see a lot of hikers that go out of their way to cause conflict with cyclists. Are you one of them? I have an extensive ba...

I suppose I could have written, none were not nice. But it still remains that all encounters I had with cyclists on the CT were fine. :)

Re: Motorized Electric Bikes On Trails

Hike the Colorado Trail through a section that allows mountain bikes and you will never want to see another one on the trail, Apart from the weird bravado mountain bikers seem to come with, the trail becomes trash, picture walking foot over foot on a 6-8 inch deep five inch wide rut all day, I disa...

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

Trying to make the best of it - been taking lessons learned from backpacking and trying to apply it to general daily living. Such as only washing hands when getting to town for resupply. Bathing and laundry maybe every 2nd or 3rd resupply. Pouring water down your crack and rubbing when things get r...

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

I don't understand the whole toilet paper hoarding thing. Kleenex would make more sense as it will be our noses that are running, not our asses. :-k I always use TP to blow my nose, then throw it in the toilet. If I'm on trail, I just use the single or double barrel technique depending on my situat...

Re: Bell on a Bicycle

@CannondaleKid Warnings are fine, ringing a bell is fine, hearing a jingling bell when the rider is 200 yards or more away is just annoying. I'm talking about the bells that ring whenever the cyclist goes over a bump or a rock, which on the trail is constant. I'm not talking about the bicycle bells...
