@sidhayes

That’s exactly what I plan to do when they close all trailheads down. :)

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

It will be interesting to see what the trails here will look like this weekend with the closure of popular trail heads and one trail. FS and Law enforcement will be patrolling those areas supposedly and will issue citations. I’ve thought about the closures a bit more and I hope they shutdown the res...

Re: AZ National Forest Closures

@DixieFlyer I wonder the same. The last thing our first responders need is a rescue at Bear or Wilson. My heart skipped a bit when I saw the headline. Overall good choice of trails that are certainly heavily trafficked. It will be interesting to see how the trails will look like this weekend.

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

“Sedona Mayor advocates to close most popular trails and trailheads” https://www.sedonaaz.gov/Home/Components/News/News/5087/473 That will certainly prevent tourists from continuing to pour into town. I must admit I will be very unhappy if locals cannot use the trails, most of us can walk to a trail...

Re: Put On Your Freakin' Headphones

Today after a peaceful 4 mile loop I was subjected to Kelly Clarksons “Since you’ve been gone” on full blast about 0.3 miles from the trailhead. I’ve had the song stuck in my head since then *insert vomit emoji*. I don’t understand at all the need for boom boxes on the trail and I like listening to ...

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

Last week I thought people were taking the pandemic seriously, only would see a couple of people on the trail. Wrong. By the the end of the hike after close to 11am.. it was business as usual..tourists everywhere, no regard for physical distance or even basic trail etiquette. Didn’t matter if I holl...

Re: Smart Outdoor Watch-What do you wear?

These days it's the Garmin 6x Pro Solar for me. More comfortable on the wrist than the 5x and with the solar, charge infrequently vs. the 5x. (even though I use the former to log more activities).

Re: What's Your Favorite Color

For hiking/trail running attire? Orange. I just realized that color might not stand out too well around where I hike/run. Whoops.

Re: Hiking etiquette with dogs

Very old thread but for the past few months I've been hiking with our new pup so i've been interested in hiking etiquette when it comes to dogs. Around here there are leash laws but I see quite a number of off leash dogs on the trail. My pup is leashed on the trails but there are times I put the lea...

Re: Anyone else a trail runner?

Haven't posted here in a while..

Hi Travis! trail run on the weekends on the local trails. Running stories?
Yesterday a javelina (slowly?) blasted in front of me and before that I was lunged at by 2 leashed dogs on the trail, surely kept me on my toes! :)

Re: delorme inreach

I have one, on a monthly subscription although I only use it once or twice a year. They have different subscription plans, maybe it's time to change mine. I used to take it with me a lot when I first started hiking but as I've started becoming familiar with the trails, and started trail running I do...

Re: Smart Outdoor Watch-What do you wear?

@Pivo I've always used a Garmin for my outdoor activities, started out with the Fenix 3HR and now using a Fenix 5x. I have a vivoSmart HR to wear everyday (on my ankle), for step count. Outdoor activities that I do and track are trail running, indoor bouldering/climbing, hiking, indoor rowing and s...

Re: What's your least favorite?

West Fork Oak Creek Trail - - boring and too flat of a trail for me, we turned back probably half way through the hike. Also not a fan of stream crossings... unless they lead to a 14er. :)

Re: 2018 Hazolutions

Seeing as I was only able to check off 2 out of so many 'hazolutions' last year I will keep it simple for next year.

- Hike more! - - - since i've started trail running I've been pretty much just doing that instead of hiking
- Complete my first class 3 hike.. Wetterhorn!

@chumley
I have not read the article but perhaps they are referring to a new women's record? I think Jim was there that day for Cat's record breaking run.

Re: Climbers! - Reel Rock 12 at Pollack /Tempe and Sedona

We were there for the early screening, the film was great! I was a little bit concerned about the venue (after seeing the reviews online) but it was all good. Enjoyed the film by Cedar. :)

Re: Investing in Gear

Get most of my gear (clothing, shoes) online: Summit Hut, Sunny Sports, Mountain Steals, Mountain Gear, Camp Saver, Back Country, Moosejaw, Amazon and if I can't find the gear I need I go directly to the brand's website i.e. Fjallraven, La Sportiva, Arcteryx, Salomon.
