Re: Fires along Superstition Ridgeline

@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...

Re: For GPSjoe - 5 yr Anniversary at Mt. Peeley TH

Me too CactusCat! I smoked tobacco cigarettes for 35 years and finally quit with the help of e-cigs. It was the only thing that helped me quit.

Re: Hikes Near Farmington CT

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...

Re: Your ideal hike length?

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
I drove through Star Valley three weeks ago and the cameras were still there.

Re: ACL Tear

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...

ACL Tear

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...

Re: Broken Ankle

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 ...
