Re: Superstition Ridgeline Snow Hike

I'm pretty sure we ran into each other up there. I would have mentioned something when we talked if I had thought about it.

It was rather incredible up in the mountains!

Re: Superstition Ridgeline Snow Hike

I'm planning on going up Superstition peak 5057 on Thursday from Carney spring. Perhaps we'll run into each other up there! I'm looking forward to seeing some good snow and hopefully some clouds to hike through! :y:

Re: Rug Road 'West' drive/hike 12/5

Do you have any ideas on when you might get back into town? I do have plans for later in the afternoon (5ish), so that will determine if I can join or not.

Hooray! I don't think Jim will like this news though.

Re: Bears In The News

I've seen a few Bears, though it's been a few years since my last sighting. I saw one at Reavis charging up a hill which was pretty cool. The other's I've seen were in the White Mountains...one of which got in our campsite at night. :scared:

They are pretty awesome to see.

I can't make this, but you'll have to let us know how the water levels are.

Re: 2014: Rain, Snow, Wind, and Sun

We live in Arizona, we should be glad for the rain. Today was fantastic! Great weather with a bit of rain to keep it cool is always a plus in my book.

Re: HAZ Tracks - GPS Hiking App

Apple is in the spotlight, and there's no excuse for a company like it to release software that has major problems. Almost every time apple releases an update, or new version they have some sort of issue with it. They usually fix it pretty quickly, but the following update sometimes then has its ow...

Re: "Okay" camera vs. "GREAT" camera

FYI --Sony has come out with a 50 MP chip for I think video cameras only at this time. That's a pointless amount of pixels for video. 5 MP is more than 1080, and 18 is more than digital 4k. The only reason to have more than 20 MP would be for doing high quality prints or for freedom to crop. Anyway...

Re: What motivates you?

For me it's a few things. It's about getting away from the noise of "civilization." It's to find and explore new places. It's to live out the adventurous spirit. It's to reflect and look into my own life to see where I am in life, where I've been, and Where I'm headed.
