Re: GCNP Backpack Trip Questionzzzz

if you get the permit to stay at one of the TWO group sites at Phantom, you can hang there. the poles that are used for pack hanging (critters) are perfectly spaced for straps. Nice, that's what I hoping for and to possibly do. You guys have a nice variety of setups, what degree TQ and UQ did you u...

Re: GCNP Backpack Trip Questionzzzz

Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate it. I will definitely do some more research on the HAZ site for some other trails. I was pretty much going off of Chums recommended South Kaibab / Bright Angel Corridor Loop. I will checkout that youtube channel for sure, the more I can learn the better. Than...

GCNP Backpack Trip Questionzzzz

Hey HAZ People, I'm moving back to AZ this November (I live in S. KOREA) and wanted to do an overnight into the Grand Canyon. Im thinking Kaibab trail in and Bright Angel trail out. I saw online that you need to apply for a permit at least 3 months out to stay at the camp grounds. I also saw that yo...

Re: trail running hydration

I would look at Ultimate Direction gear very good quality and well thought out for long distance running. I use their vest for hiking/trail running and it is awesome.

Re: Hiking vehicles

Actually, until the service manager told me today that this was a normal vibration as he detected it in another car, they have been pretty good about taking care of this. It was the reversal of their opinion with no change in the car, that was so troubling. Thanks for the tip. That is BS it has wor...

Re: Boiling water in a plastic bottle!

I have tried the suspended method many times with some success. The easiest way is to heat up stones and add them to the bottle bringing the water to a boil. It also doesn't require any cordage.

Re: Hiking vehicles

Two of the best 4x4's for the money ever made are the ISUZU TROOPER and Mitsubishi Montero SR aka the Full Size model. Both are light years beyond anything available domestically in the price range. For some reason they just never really caught on in popularity here. The Troopers rear axle is rated ...

The packs are a little heavy but the bladder is what really sets them apart from anything else. Easy to clean easy to fill and no sucking involved.

Re: Hiking vehicles

I miss my '91 Skylark. As junky as it was, it was a tough car, with a fair amount of clearance and it did well off road, at least back east on sandy flat areas. Got hung up on some old abandoned rail road tracks, though. My civic was never as comfortable to drive, as the Buick was. Civic is way bet...

Re: Hiking vehicles

Searched the thread and only found 2 mentions of Subarus, none for the Forester. Curiously, one considers their Subaru to be a female. If that is the case, anyone know of where I can find a suitable male Subaru to mate with their female? Stud fees can be negotiated. Seriously though, anyone have an...

Re: Devils Canyon Still Open?

Don't let a little thing like leeches stop you...Just pull them off when you get out.... :D No way am I going to let a few insects stop me from completing this trip. Rick might know more on access as he was there in March. You might send him a PM as he may not read the forum. No gear is required, t...

Hello Everyone I figure I would start off my first post with a question. Any help advice or ideas are greatly appreciated. I have been wanting to visit the pools for several years now but something always seems to come up. I have made the attempted visit twice. The first time I went to far and took ...
