Re: Route Scout - GPS Topo Mapper

Joe,

I see in the change log that...
- added mtn => mountain to audio abbreviation conversions
...and...
- audio waypoints now convert a few abbreviations ie: nw th ft

Is there a list of all the recognized abbreviation conversion?

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 ...

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...

Now, I've never "hammocked" before, but I have hiked much of the AZT. There are miles upon miles with no "tree" that I would consider good enough to strap a hammock to. Possibly up north above the rim, and on the sky islands; but down south? Nah, I wouldn't plan on it.

Re: FR 4 Road Conditions

Well... A follow-up. My son and I hiked in almost all the way. @ultrazona 's description is correct. Short wheel base, off-road tires, and a lot of patience would be required to drive out there. There's a lot of sand, loose rock, narrow passages, and drop-offs.

FR 4 Road Conditions

All,
I'm planning a hike Memorial Day (Observed) on the Alamo Canyon segment from the FR 4 crossing down to PicketPost.

Has anyone recently driven that road from Superior out to the trail crossing? What are my chances with a stock '96 Chevy Suburban 4x4?

Thanks for any advice,
Gary

List of AZT cache boxes

All,

Is there a publicly-available list of the AZT water cache boxes? You know, those brown, metal, latched boxes, usually near accessible locations?

Thanks,
Gary

Trail Angel Extraordinaire and I are hiking the two AZT segments just east and west of Patagonia (#3 Canelo Hills West and #4 Temporal Gulch) today and tomorrow. I hope the rain hasn't messed things up down there.

Re: AZ Trail Thru-hike SOBO on Sept 30

Before I hike a section, I try to e-mail the section steward, to ask if there's anything I need to be aware of, i.e. hard-to-follow parts, tricky spots, etc.; or anything I can do for the trail while I'm out there.

Re: Short Hike with kids

Might I suggest Pima Canyon TH at South Mountain? There are lots of "easy" trails, some more demanding than others. You can pick and choose, depending on your daughters' level of comfort. As they get better at hiking, you can easily choose the more demanding trails.

I have 1,001 questions about RS, and how to use it, and I hate pestering Joe and/or this forum. Has a manual been written? If not, I'd be happy to volunteer. After all, the best way to get to know something, is to write the manual for it! I only have an Android phone, so any differences to the iPhon...
