In response to whereveriroam's reply: Coffe Flat Mountain loop does sound like the appropriate name for this one. Dripping Springs to Hoolie Bacon (Red Tanks trail) is very nice and scenic. We are planning a future trek for an overnighter to check out various side canyons that look way too cool. Th...

Killer Loop Hike

We did an awesome killer loop day hike in the superstitions yesterday. I was wondering if this hike has a name, if not I'll right one up for a new hike. Here it goes: From Peralta TH, Take the Ducthmans Trail to the Coffee Flat intersection. Take the Coffee Flat trail to Dripping Springs. From Dripp...

Tortilla TH

It's a shame we have to factor in punks ruining a place that the rest of us treasure and take care of. :x As I said I wasn't prepared for that kind of offroading so the next time I go I will be. I'm still thinking of putting a few rocks in key places to make it a little better though.

Tortilla TH

So what are we supposed to do? I'm game for fixing it, and i'm not talking about making it into a super highway but at least so people with a high clearance vehicle can make it. How does this sound? Anyone game for this kind of "trail/trailhead" repair?
How is the rest of the road to Tortilla TH?

Tortilla Trailhead road

I'm sorry but this road sucks the big one. I've driven several backroads in Arizona class 5 and below. I have a 2003 Tundra 4x4 and I only made it half way up the second "step". You could say I was a little bitter at the fact that we got up early and drove from Prescott Valley only to be stopped by ...

Re: Need pack

In response to napalm's reply: The Kelty Moraine sucks, I took two back to REI both with the same problem, stitch busted in the same exact place. I only used it once on both occasion with very little weight. I then went to the Gregory Stinger, good for canyoneering. I primarly use my Camelback H.A....

Re: Crossing the line

In response to overrocked's reply: Indian Lands: Get a Permit Private Land: Get permission or Don't go. There's a reason it's private. Switchbacks: Don't do it, it's what gives hikers a bad name and gets areas closed! Closed Areas: Well let's think, it's probably closed for a reason, maybe it's bec...

Not always, but sometimes, I carry my Ruger P89 DC 9mm. The ammo you use is somewhat of debate as well in some cases. I use Federal Jacketed Hollow point 115 grain. Too much grain will make the bullet go straight through a person with little effect. A lower grain will give the bullet time to "mushro...

That's good, I wouldn't want to think anyone on HAZ would be that careless.

In response to 'Cakewalk' "I like to hike alone, I never tell anyone where Im going, and I often go off trail - If something tragic should happen, I suppose the authorities will have to look for circling birds to find me."

Good, Let them keep thinking that. :wink: As for me, when I moved from Texas to Arizona in 97' I thought the desert was awe inspiring to say the least. :) Some people are very narrow minded on what beauty is and looks likes. It's sad that a Governor would say something like that but like always, pol...

I use the Pre-Mac MWP. It's a british military design. It's lightweight, kills everything including viruses and has a flow rate of three minutes per liter. It has been tested and approved by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It is also safe to use in cold conditions. The down side ...

Matt, just like Glenn said every folder has a "pin" and when put to the test will break and then your SOL. This is one of the main reasons, besides strength that I don't carry a folder. In fact my backup knife is the same knife I carry as my primary, a Frosts-Mora sweeden. They're fairly cheap, arou...

Ever since man walked he has needed a good cutting tool. Yes, I agree rambo type knives serve no real purpose in the bush. I carry a Frosts-Mora Sweeden, nine inches total length, four inch blade. Good basics you want in a knife are: A full tang, comfortable handle, wide sharpening bevel, straight p...
