Re: Idea for a two night overnighter in early December

Welcome! Default recommendation is probably this: https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=1441" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, especially if you're looking to experience some sweet, sweet prickly desert. If you're looking for something a bit tougher and higher elevation (thus lower t...

Re: Checklist Items

ZOMG HAZ has a pack planner too? Good grief this site is awesome.

@Terry123 here's one of my packs from earlier this year. It's under 10 lbs and was only for 1 night, so it's a bit barebones. lighterpack.com/r/1 ... 3kvq

Re: Mazatzals: #850 and HK Ranch

@mazatzal Was hoping / betting that you had some experience here :) Thanks for pointing out the 1930 layer. Love checking out the old trails that used to criss-cross the current wilderness boundaries, possible explorations for future years :) Did you find the old foundation? And, by any chance, do ...

Mazatzals: #850 and HK Ranch

On several topo maps I've seen a trail stretch south from Dutchman Grave #22, cross Sycamore Creek in the center of the old HK Ranch, and then dead-end a short distance later. It's labeled #850. Haven't been able to find anything about a Trail #850 in the Mazatzals and only a few mentions of HK Ranc...

FOUND: Glasses in case along South Fork #46

Found a pair of glasses balanced on a rock along the South Fork Trail in the Mazatzals, maybe four miles up. In an eyeglass case and everything, looked like they hadn't been there longer than a few days. Shouted a few times, didn't hear a nearby owner. ... though I really hope someone isn't stumblin...

Re: newbies going on first desert hike

Depending on the heat and terrain I've consumed as much as a liter an hour during the afternoon hot hours. This is a bit much, some outings don't get close to this, but I feel a lot better when I'm pushing large quantities of water through my system. Recommend doing every-other-liter w/ electrolytes...

Re: Pogo pack exoskeleton lightens your load

I'm just waiting for the day we'll be using BigDogs to haul our 200 lbs of camping gear up and down the mountains while we skip around and smell the flowers.

Re: Trekking Poles

Trekking poles are all for aesthetics though, right? I usually carry mine in one hand until I hear someone coming up on the trail, then hurry up and clank them around a lot for show.

(In all seriousness, thanks for the youtube link @azbackpackr. Never really 'got' the straps thing.)

Re: Project Help

+1 water sources. Even something like rejuvenation of wilderness sources and up-to-date information on current conditions. For example, I'd like to pretend that Whiskey Springs is dependable, but the trough is so filled with grass and dirt that it's hard to tell.

Re: Camping near Brown's Peak

Should have clarified - campers are of mixed experience. Only two of us are planning on doing the 'Lode, the rest are there for the campfire and stars. Thanks for the info :)

Camping near Brown's Peak

Howdy howdy! So, planning on messing around on Brown's Peak (Mother Lode, mayhaps?) in a few weeks. Been up there twice, once to Brown's and once to Amethyst. Vaguely remember an exposed campsite in the saddle before the mountain, was planning on bringing a crew of mixed experience up and spending t...
