@friendofThundergod I totally get it & I don't post much on the forums anymore but the Superstition fire really left me heartbroken for the beautiful wilderness of rock, saguaros and cholla. I've been hiking in the Supes for almost 20 years, so when the Woodbury fire came through in 2019 burning 12...

Hank, Thanks for putting this together so we could all in our own hearts & together as a group bring closure to this sad event from 2010. We honored a respected & well-loved member of our hiking community this past weekend with his son Christian there as well. Walk on with God's angels Joe & be at p...
I lived in CT for 40 years. There are several regions that offer up great hiking. The first is the Kent area in the western part of the state and the AT runs 52 miles to the border of Mass. I backpacked this section of the AT in 1982 and it is gorgeous. Something a little closer to the Hartford area...

In the past, 9-11 miles has always been my "comfort-zone" although I've pushed the limits on several trips to 18-20. However after I blew out my ACL in May 2014 that has drastically changed. I'm managing 5 or 6 miles after 4 months of physical therapy and daily exercises.

How about Star Valley, east of Payson? I know that one's nailed more than a few HAZers
Thanks to all who replied to my post about their experience with ACL injuries. I know each person and situation is different and there are many factors for me to consider. I especially liked Letty's frank remark of "pay me now or pay me later" because I know (having worked for orthopedic surgeons fo...
@Trishness So when are we going hiking? I am limbing around pretty good right now. :) Me too! Actually I'm heading to Alaska in July for 2 1/2 weeks so I'm not doing anything to screw my knee up further before I go so maybe when I get back we can "tear those trails up"....ya know just limpin' along...
I'm just curious if any members of the HAZ community have completely blown out their ACL and how many of you opted for ACL reconstruction and how many just let it be and modified your activities. It happened to me when I was hiking in CT on 05-17-14 and got my foot caught between some tree roots and...
FMLA is 12 weeks
@Widowmaker Talk to your Human Resources Dept about filing for FMLA. There are guidelines that will protect your job: Essentially FMLA protects you from being fired due to your injury, Your employer must grant you 12 weeks unpaid leave and they have to provide you a position (maybe not your original...
Sorry to hear about your fractured ankle..... :( I work for an orthopedic surgeon and have worked in ortho for almost 15 years. The ankle joint is complex so much depends on what was fractured (was it the lateral malleolus, calcaneus, distal fibula, distal tibia, talar dome or a combo of these?) as ...
