Re: AZT Segment 1 in July

Just be careful not to find yourself in a wash or, God forbid, a slot canyon during monsoon season, or the next time anyone sees you, you might be in the Gulf. :D
But seriously, be careful. Should be okay up to San Jacinto day, generally.

Re: Dumb N00b Question about Water

Wow, Chumley, those are looking like the Bellagio Hotel of water tanks compared to some of the back-alley-No-Tel Motels you had in the other pix. :D

Oh, and yeah, he was a weird French poet dude -- but I think he and the other folks in his general set might've understood the drive to go out to the edges of places, if you know what I mean.

Re: Dumb N00b Question about Water

Tanks? You wanna talk about Tanks? Son - there is a drought out there and there ain't no extra water. Many tanks are depressions ranchers have excavated to hold water for their cattle. Ranchers haul water in trucks and fill tanks for their cattle. Ranchers make their living from cattle drinking fro...

Re: Dumb N00b Question about Water

Depending on trail angels seems really dicey. What do people do who hike Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon?? Do they carry 77 miles worth of water with them rather than trust to the kindness of strangers, or what? What if you can't cache??

Re: Dumb N00b Question about Water

How do you know where they are? Aren't ranchers pissed off if you drink out of their cattle tanks?? Also, looking at this report http://www.fredgaudetphotography.com/aztrail/watercurrent.pdf, it looks as if there's basically not much water at all from mile 614 in passage 34 all the way up through Tu...

Dumb N00b Question about Water

Okay, so what is the deal with the tanks? Like, assume I am an idiot who knows nothing. What does this mean? If there are tanks along the trail, are they enclosed, as in a water tower or something? Aren't they private property? Does anyone have a picture?

Thanks for your patience.
