Re: Joe Bartels hiking injury

Sorry about the accident Joe :( I'm sure it will have its setbacks. However, I have no doubt there will be more epic bushwhacks going in the archives in the future. Hope the mend goes smoothly!

What do you suppose came first?? Mining roads from the late 1800's/early 1900's or federally designated wildness from the 30's and 40's? I assure you it was the roads.

Re: Fossil Creek spillover

Im opposed to the permit system for this very reason. The trash Fossil Creek attracts infuriates me but at the same time it was mostly limited to fossil creek. The 'trash' is sure not to pay to play and since there are other options, why not go there? As you say, it wont be long before other canyons...

Re: Hiking Vehicle Tires

Nice! I've pushed mine hard over the past couple months of hunting season. Many trails I wish I had my quad for... And they've continued to impress. The tires have been on for 15k, show no sign of the abuse, and have maybe lost a 1/16 of tread. Good choice!

Re: Obama Changes Peaks Name To "Denali"

It's the right move. When I was up there everyone called it Denali. The only time I saw it referred to as mt McKinley was on various signs within the park.

Re: FS to remove Salt River wild horses

The Salt River Horse's are a small part of a much bigger story. I first learned about it years ago while fishing with my uncle at lake pleasant. No matter which cove you spend a couple hours in, you are sure to hear the grin inducing noise a burrow makes. He explained that they were introduced throu...

Re: Fire in the Catalinas

This reminds me of a couple years ago when I was at reach 11 watching a good storm lighting up the McDowells. Pretty quickly I saw the glow of 3 spot fires along the range. watched them grow a bit and fade out over the following hour. Pretty cool

Re: West Clear Creek during Monsoon Season

Just got back from 2 nights at the hanging gardens and we got 2 30+ min rain and thunder shows. Neither did anything to the water level which was already lower than prior trips. I would think theres enough vegetation around the drainage to prevent most flooding with typical monsoon storms.

Re: Hiking Vehicle Tires

That's cuz you went from KO's to KO 2's. I had stock tires before which was about a 15lb jump per tire. Adding 60lbs to the tires is far different than adding 60lbs to the bed of the truck. They require more torque/power to get them rolling which created a change in acceleration and overall fuel eco...

Re: Hiking Vehicle Tires

I did my homework and was torn between the KO2 and duratracs. I put the KO2s on my truck a couple months ago and have been very happy with them overall. Performance wise they handle great and are quite for a deep tread AT tire. Like you said, the thickness of the side wall and tread bring peace of m...

Re: Camping in Moab Memorial Day weekend

Ran into this problem on our way back from Alaska. As we drove down through moab it didnt seem like we were going to find anywhere to disperse camp. We pulled off on a dirt road by hole in the rock to just pass out for the night. I think the best thing to do is know where youre camping before it get...
