Shawn, if it was a thumbnail, I wouldn't be able to read it! I liked it just the way it was.

Whoo Hoo! Only two more months to Popping Christmas Lights! Ah, that's the life, sitting with an eggnog in one hand and popping Christmas lights with the other! It doesn't get much better than that!

Re: Any siblings here on HAZ?

Attach a picture, huh?! Challenge accepted! : rambo :

(rummage, rummage, ah HA!)

I'm in the center back, in the blue shirt; @neight33 is sitting on Mom's lap. Guesstimating the picture was taken in '75.

Any siblings here on HAZ?

As you may have noticed, @neight33 and I are siblings.

Do any of you have siblings here on HAZ? Maybe I'm getting senile, but I don't remember anyone "claiming" someone as a sibling.

Just curious.

My wife and I prefer the route through Payson when going to/from Flagstaff - even though to/from Mesa it takes an additional 45 minutes. The difference in stress level and scenic views is well worth the time. (Plus, we get to drive over the AZT - twice!)

Re: What's the best GPS?

For short 2-5 hour day hikes, I use Route Scout on my Samsung Galaxy J1 (yeah, it's old, but then, so am I). Anything longer, I bring along my Garmin eTrex Vista HCx. It's got great battery life, and a couple spare AAs aren't heavy. My only complaint about the Garmin is: when following a track, I ha...

...and...
- audio waypoints now convert a few abbreviations ie: nw th ft

Thanks,

Old Man vs. Corona del Loma Trails

Using Route Editor (Thanks @joebartels !), I was building a loop route on South Mountain, starting at Pima Canyon trailhead, going west on the Desert Classic Trail, then back east on the National. I found the Old Man Trail (aka Corona de Loma East), and used it to connect those two. But then, I saw ...

Re: Hiking with dogs

Maybe it's a Colorado "thing". I've never seen it here in the Phx metro area. I know as I get closer to the car, my daughter's Black Mouth Cur starts pulling harder and harder on the leash! Even after a 6 mile hike. Get-Home-itis? (look it up, it's a real breed!)

Re: Not backpacking Columbus Day wknd

@chumley I apologize. I wasn't clear. We're driving them up on Friday, camping overnight outside the park boundary, getting them up Saturday morning at o'dark hundred, driving them to the North Kaibab trailhead, dropping them (and a few adult leaders) off, then driving around to the South Rim, and ...

I just finished entering the last few hikes for 2018. My annual total was... 189 miles! My 2019 Hazolutions are: 1) Hike 200 miles. 2) Meet and hike a few miles with some of you.

May I point out my mistake? For years, I presumed that by "Public" it meant that others could modify my routes. I was mistaken. They can see them, but can't change them. :oops:

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Wouldn't you know it! No rain for... EVER, and I plan a two day hike down by Vail on the AZT. Guess what? Rain! Oh, well. I'm certainly not made of sugar, so I'll just plug along. : rambo : Unfortunately, my daughter and son-in-law aren't so ambivalent about hiking in the rain.

Re: Route Scout app question

A plausible scenario could be: My wife and I both have accounts on HAZ. We both create tracks in Route Cloud. We both go hiking together. She forgets her phone (I never forget mine; of course, not!) We decide to hike her track, not mine. How??? A possible answer would be - IF we had flagged each oth...
