Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

@sandyfortner
Sandy,

How would you get money to a trail angel? Say you ask for water to be cached at a trailhead down the trail. The angel supplies the water in advance of you getting to it. Where is the transaction?

Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

Too bad, as I'd buy you lunch if you were near flagstaff or something. Thanks for all of your help!

Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

@sandyfortner Gardener jumping in. A question about water caches. I notice on the facebook page that trail angels (I assume they're trail angels) seem to always be resupplying water caches, especially on the southern portion of the trail. Is this what they do (as opposed, say, to the Appalachian tr...

Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

@sandyfortner
Sandy,

Do I need to cache water? When I look at the water situation coming from the Utah border it, frankly, looks pretty grim. And, if I do need to cache, how do I go about that?

Sara@ssthomas19

You posted that you had a website that helped you navigate your thru hike. I didn't see it listed. Can you include?

Thanks,

Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

Is Lyme disease a big issue on the AZT? It's huge on the Appalachian Trail.

Re: Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

@sandyfortner Thanks for the response. On the Appalachian Trail I averaged 20 miles a day. Frankly, I can't imagine terrain more difficult than that, so I hope to match that on the AZT, maybe with slower going around the Grand Canyon. Will take your advice on the sun umbrella. Do you think I can re...

Fall 2019 SOBO thru hike

Hello, I've done a search on this forum about the SOBO experience and am not finding a lot of information. That easily could be my fault. In any case, I'm planning to do hike around October 1 and I've got some questions: **How's the water this time of year and how much water do people usually carry....

Best Northern Airport for the Arizona Trail

Can someone suggest the best (most reliable, cheapest) airport to use to get to the northern terminus trailhead? I would need to take a shuttle from there, obviously.

Thanks in advance,

Gardener
