Re: Backpacking Trip in August - 2 night - not hot with water???

@Watauga Oh ya, I guess if you moved here two years ago, you probably would be wondering, what is this monsoon thing I keep hearing about, lol. I think the likely hood of the rim being closed because its on fire or closed due to it being a tinder box would be more likely scenarios to plan around wh...

Re: Arizona wildlife sightings

@Nighthiker Oh really? That’s cool. We actually saw them on the drive in, just before Parker Canyon. Honestly, I wasn’t even sure if they were in the Ancha until I saw them.

Re: Arizona wildlife sightings

Nice day of wildlife sightings in the Ancha yesterday. We saw bighorn sheep on the drive in, (which was a first for me in that area) and this guy.

Re: Recent death & rescue in Death Valley NP

Agreed. They also left their dogs in the Subaru? WTF! Wow is that true? I saw the same pic and its in both articles I read, but I hoped it was just a photo of the couples car from another time, I thought the background looked like somewhere in AZ, yikes if true, even more perplexed by it all now...

Re: Recent death & rescue in Death Valley NP

I read something else about this incident too, its perplexing. I just can´t imagine leaving that car with three days worth of water for some cross country trek like they did.

Re: Hiking vehicles

@Jim_H Yup. That was one of the final factors in getting the new vehicle. I think I paid for one more repair on the Xterra and then bought the 4Runner. It’s no fun having an unreliable vehicle with my hobbies. I learned that night that if you break down in the woods, even on a moderate dirt road, y...

Re: Hiking vehicles

I once had to get an “off road” recovery. Waited all night in the woods until driver finally showed up, he was drunk and high and there was a baby in the cab with him. The driver started falling asleep as he was driving and we were getting pretty uncomfortable and worried about our safety. Eventuall...

@Barrett I was out there this weekend to do Marion Point. No water seeping near Marion Point camp and no pooled water, generally very dry out there.

Re: Mapping and surveying GC through history

@sam_hikes
I am going to go out on a limb and assume Powell's response would be, "What is R2R2R and what is a FTK?"
