Sometime after the pandemic closed everything down, they sold mail-order through a lottery system. I was able to get two that way.

Re: Backpacking Stoves.

Hmm, and I've just used a 16oz Talenti jar for the past several years. It's light and I don't need to worry about fuel. It doesn't work too well in the cold though, maybe that's why I tend not to winter camp?

Re: Midlayer

I have very little redundancy and extras. But it still stays at 40lbs. I would say for backpacking, any redundancy is probably too much as you should be able to manage without for a few days. Generally, my motto is: if you're not sure about something, don't take it, especially for a long-distance t...

Re: Really?....REALLY?

I'm fine with the name change. Personally, I really don't care either way, but I will say, I'm not going to rush out and buy an updated Grand Canyon map.

Re: Thanksgiving Suggestions for sections

I'll just suggest what I've done with 2, 4-day trips. Both starting the weekend before Thanksgiving. The first, in 2014, I hiked from Patagonia to the Gabe Zimmerman trailhead. Seems that was about 62 miles. The second, in 2019, was from Tiger Mine trailhead, near Oracle, to Picketpost trailhead. Th...

It appears that the remaining closed portion is open to foot, horse, bicycle, and UTV traffic.

I just looked at the satellite view of my route. The construction on the first night was for the 202, so no houses, just cars, lol.

Re: Maricopa trail... where can one camp?

@runnr_az The end of 2017, I hiked about 85 miles of the Maricopa trail, clockwise from Guadalupe to the Trilby trailhead just off Grand in Surprise. Camping was tricky, so was water. The first night I had to move my campsite about 400' to get off tribal land into a construction area. Loop 202 is t...

Ya know, he probably saw a lot more those 15 days than those smelling roses would see in a year. Just saying, going slow, doesn't mean you see more. On the contrary, it means you see less.

Re: NoBo or SoBo?

I don't know where you are kit-wise, but here's a video where I discuss what I had on the PCT, during the PCT. My kit changed very little throughout, so I think it's a reasonable example of a thru-hiker's kit. I forgot my hiking poles so had them sent to me before entering the Sierra along with a ne...

Re: NoBo or SoBo?

Like xsproutx said, sobo in the fall. I section hiked all of the AZT, with 4 sections around 100 miles each. I've thru hiked several trails, all in the west, including the PCT so maybe I can answer some of your questions there. Personally, I recommend keeping your kit reasonably light, that's what I...

It was definitely signed a month ago when I went. Even without the sign, it would be hard to miss as that is where all the people congregate. Just make sure you keep it Ooh Aah point and not Ooh Aaaaiaaiiiiiiiih point.

Re: Guilty plea for man who led outsized Grand Canyon hike group

Sad as no one should want a group of 100 doing a R2R as wasn't the limit supposed to be 11 but instead I wouldn't be surprised if NPS requires day hiking permits on SK & BA. R2R Special use permits are needed for groups of 12-30. Groups greater than 30 aren't allowed. Groups of 11 or less don't...
