Re: Arizona Trail 800 Mile Showdown Light VS McKnight FKT

@big_load A lot of ultrarunners prefer high-fat, low-carb diets specifically so they can optimize fat metabolization, so it doesn't seem like a huge stretch for someone to get to a point where they can metabolize fat at a high enough rate (see: https://ultrarunning.com/featured/success-with-ofm/, a...

Re: Pima County Trailhead Break-Ins

Do you feel good? I bet you do. You side with crime. You victim blame now, and you side with murders and drug addicts. That speaks volumes about you as a person. There's a lot to unpack here, but - when you start a thread about a "rash of break-ins", make an off-hand incendiary remark, an...

Re: Pima County Trailhead Break-Ins

That said, while certain actions or behaviors can help minimize the risk, the blame falls on the criminal fountain cleanser, not on the victim of the crime. Yeah, I'm not implying the blame for the crime belongs on the victim, I'm merely pointing out that there are basic precautions people can foll...

Re: Pima County Trailhead Break-Ins

I still say do not park at any of these trailheads. What were the odds it would happen to me today between 930 AM and 1030 AM? Who cares, it happened. This is probably a good example of the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, and people still generally don't need to worry about this, provided they take the ...

Re: Pima County Trailhead Break-Ins

This has been an issue for years and years in Pima County, based on posts in the local trail running groups. I think it's a bit extreme to say avoid parking at these THs altogether, as the likelihood you'll get broken into is still pretty low, even at the THs with a reputation for break-ins (like Do...

Everything south of the Superstitions would be dangerous in summer, and a lot of water sources wouldn't be available by June.

Re: New record summiting all CO 14er’s

Love the gatekeeping. You know what? I've done things fast, and I've done them slow. Somehow I found a way to enjoy myself in either case.

This Dan Hobbs guy has almost certainly summitted many 14ers at a more reasonable pace before setting his speed record.

Re: Best place to start a hike to Reavis Ranch?

Another option is to start from Miles Ranch, the shortest route to Reavis from there is about 12 miles and two climbs each way. It's pretty scenic, and the road in wasn't too bad the times I've driven there.

Re: Capitol Gorge Flood Video

@big_load Yeah, the parking lot didn't look high, but based on google street view , there's an easy 20 foot berm on the south side of the lot that would've been easy for anybody to just walk up, and one could get even higher with minimal effort if necessary. Absolute safety would've been easy to ac...

@rwstorm I disagree that he made good choices, he really just got lucky that he didn't make it 100 yards further up the road. If I see waterfalls coming off the side of the cliffs like that, the last thing I'm going to do is get in a vehicle and start driving across previously-dry washes, I'm going...

Re: Flagstaff RD to discuss camping ban

Honestly, I don't see the problem with closing areas to camping if the consequences of a fire are particularly bad. There are plenty of areas to camp up there that aren't within three miles of the peaks, so closing that particular area wouldn't really be that big a burden on people who want to go up...

Lake Como Rd was exceptionally dangerous this trip due to heavy rain, high chance for rockfall and extremely slippery rock, Wait, what? Rockfall?

Shouldn't be too hard to find water in the Tushars, Blue Lake is pretty (especially the view if you're coming down from Mud Lake), I'd also recommend Bullion Pasture and Copper Belt Peak, there's a social trail from just north of the Bullion Pasture TH that follows the ridge to Copper Belt.

Sometimes you can't predict it. A couple years ago I was in the Gila Wilderness, the Cub Fire actually started while I was out there (I heard the lightning strike that probably started it). My route took me right through the area it burned, so if I had started the trip a couple days later I might ha...

@chumley
Keep in mind that, if recent permit lotteries that have been implemented are any indication, a permit system would probably mean they charge $3 just to apply.
