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...

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.

Re: Your workout hike?

30 minute drive to Bear Mountain trail here in town, short and steep (ish) hike, and a 10 minute drive to Cathedral Rock trail, if I want Cathedral Rock to be a work out hike I do laps (and run down). I don't do Bear when I know temps are going to be above 80, can't do laps on Cathedral when it's th...

Re: Schultz Pass Road

Nice heads up! It was my first time running Soulstice last weekend and it was very well organized, by the time we left the race there was still a lot of parking at the trailhead. Only saw a couple of hikers near the end, saw about 2 mountain bikers (that im sure wished they picked another day to be ...

Re: Hikes With Scrambles At The End?

This summer I am hoping to do a 14er with a class 3 section to the summit, so interested in finding hikes here in northern AZ that have class 3 sections/stretches. This will be my first class 3 14er, I've been on one with a class 3 move, but not a long section. I have not been able to find any pract...

Re: Free pizza promo results in SAR on Mt. Elden

Love their pizza and Elden is certainly a favorite in Flag (just did it last weekend when it was too hot it Sedona).

From the article: ' The man was reportedly unware of the cold weather forecast at the time of the hike.' -- I know who I'm voting for. :D

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Put some snow melt down yesterday, I guess I was being overly optimistic. We did not get any snow last night and so far still no snow today, just rain. Supposedly some rain overnight tonight down in Phoenix, possibly rain (or just overcast?) tomorrow and winds around the 20s...should make for an int...
