Re: Tent pole repair

I brought my Half Dome poles to REI and one of the reps showed me how to replace the cord (while selecting a slightly larger gauge of cord that ended up being less than optimal). Even after watching a YT video, marking all poles to insure proper reassembly, etc., I still goofed it all up. Learned an...

Re: I-17

I fail to understand how the flex lane option was deemed to be the best of the alternatives for reducing congestion and increasing safety in this corridor. I wonder what other options were seriously considered? This feels like a half-assed compromise solution driven by budgetary considerations. I c...

Nothing up yet on Inciweb. Does it only become an "incident" once there are resources committed to its management?

Re: Possible hike in the winter?

Whether it will be too cold is largely dependent on how well prepared you are. In my opinion, no passage should be avoided. Navigate your way over to the Arizona Trail Association's website at aztrail.org, become a member, and get access to all the information on the trail you will need. Armed with ...

Re: Good hikes near Dallas

I spent six weeks camping at Cedar Hill State Park. I know they have a trail system there but, as I was there during a particularly wet winter, they were all under water. Nice respite from the city, though. As I recall, it's about a 20 minute drive southwest of downtown, on US 67.

Awesome! I hope it's an enjoyable hike for you. Just this week, I assumed stewardship responsibility for the section of Passage 23 that runs SOBO from Red Hills Divide Tr Jct to Barnhardt Tr Jct. Additionally, I work with other stewards responsible for several other Mazatzal segments of the AZT. We ...

Re: Bear bagging

I agree with nonot regarding bear canisters. In my opinion, the weight they add is negligible when compared to the utility of having them. In addition to keeping all critters (not just bears) away from your food, it's a great place to store things you want to keep dry. In camp, it makes an excellent...

@joebartels Wowzers! That's awesome! :app: It didn't occur to me the junctions could be added after the track was recorded.

Or did you go re-hike those over the weekend? :lol:

My year on-trail didn't pan out quite as I had envisioned. For the second time in a row, I signed on for the 52 Hike Challenge. For the second time in a row, I came up short. I wound up stuck at home in the valley over the summer much more than I had anticipated, cutting deep into my outdoor time an...

I was on a Southeastern Arizona trip last month. Love that whole region. 360-views of mountains are a real treat. Only being half-aware of the geography, I attempted to reach Sierra Vista from AZ 83 but turned around when I saw the guard shack at the west gate to the base. Thanks, @RedRoxx44 . Now, ...
