Re: Superstitions in a Winter Storm

I once hiked 10 miles on the w. pinto trail at 34 degrees and raining, in a windshirt. don't do that, and you'll be ok :D

Re: Goldfield Mountains Hikes not found

I've heard about the confusion written in Tenny's book. I have a loaner sitting on my counter. have yet to open it. Sunday I did Black Glass via the road walk from the 88, and found it to be decent enough. Alex, there are IMO a few good gems located in the Goldfields. I've only done what.. three hik...

Re: Beginner 2 Night Trip Nearer to Phoenix

get permits for aravaipa. the leaves should be coming in, and it is a nice place to explore some nooks and side canyons, provided you will have an extra day. come in from the west, stay near booger canyon. look around. settle in. have some wine. live. just live.

Re: NOBO Early March Night time temps

that's kinda the PITA with the AZT. you might spend Monday at 2,300 feet in a valley, then Tuesday at 8,600 feet at manning camp. I have 2 sleeping bags (quilts) but supplement my 35° quilt with down jacket and pants, if I know it will be colder. for me, even worse than being cold, (which I control ...

Re: Wood Burning Stove

I use a 12" iron skillet, and a huge fire. for those who think it's heavy... a simple fix: leave your tent behind. sleep under a bush like a real man. anyway, I have neglected my firefox stove for too long. I used it about 15 times in the past. just the pleasure of sitting in front of it, feeding tw...

Re: Thru-hiking NOBO

dude.. SOBO. you're looking at temps in the 30's for a HIGH and the lows into the single digits as of this weekend (in flagstaff). 4000-10000 feet is cold. get off the Colorado plateau asap, and down into the deserts. you really won't even get to sonoran desert until the southern mazatzal range, and...

Re: Thru-hiking NOBO

I agree - SOBO if you are in low elevations, sub 3000' and NOT a riparian area, prolly slim pickin's on trees. the kind of trees YOU are prolly used to, that is. if you are in low elevations and you ARE near a stream/creek, there are usually tons of cottonwood, boxelder, willow, sycamore. careful of...

Re: Backpacking in Sedona

I fell in love with Secret Canyon. it's a fairly short out-and-back hike. but the scenery is great, and not as wet as West Fork.

Re: Aravaipa in late December

get knee-high neoprene socks. usually sold at places that carry duck hunting gear - or diving / scuba socks. there are really good 2mm neoprene compression socks sold for less than $25. last time I hiked there, a few areas were waist deep pools, but can be avoided with some out of creek scrambling.

Re: Late December backpacking for an out-of-stater

Do you think this area will be well travelled nope. it's not ever "well traveled". the trails out here are mostly clear, a few brushy spots here and there, and some cairns will guide you in tough areas. if you have hiked on narrow (1' wide) trails before, and have a good set of maps (the beartooth ...

Re: Late December backpacking for an out-of-stater

the Supes have Loops! lots and lots of loops.. you could stay busy for weeks there. a nice 4 day trip would be: drive out of east phoenix (the airport) and take the I 10 to the us60. go east out of town until you pass superior, about 30 miles east of mesa. stop and get an eyeful of what a struggling...

i was always interested in the signage there, something along the lines of "drink at your own risk". uranium or radioactivity contamination? i don't recall. must have been the water i drank from there..
