It was nip-and-tuck for a bit there. Lizzy had a ton of courage to climb into that cab! My family have enjoyed all of Matt's videos. Good clean fun!

Re: CDT - Crazy Cook Monument access

@rcorfman The guys I'm shuttling are bringing their own water to cache. I'll probably buy several gallons and mark those public to help other hikers. Quarantine? That's the first I've heard of a New Mexico quarantine. The shuttle isn't until April, so I have some time to check up on that and see wh...

CDT - Crazy Cook Monument access

With the CDT shuttle companies shut down because of COVID, a couple of friends reached out to me, asking me to drive them to the Crazy Cook Monument - the "official" southern terminus of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT). Are there any GPS tracks or driving directions on which dirt roads to take to...

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...

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!)
