Re: Water. Flagstaff to Pine

i hiked these sections, but several years ago. so, i'll follow this thread.
there were def. sections of trail (south of bargamann tank) that were dry. or fouled by livestock.

best bet is to follow AZT class of 2020 sobo's on FB, or AZT website links. you can watch reports in real time.

Re: Trademarking the term, "backcountry"

Backcountrygear.com - i would have thought those guys were in the crosshairs, as it seems very easy to confuse the two retailers. i think BCG might put up a better fight.

that's the one. may have deer hunters around. but they're good folk, usually. not there to blast Rap till midnight and not there to introduce screaming kids to the misery of camping.
there's only 5 sites. pack it in, pack it out. have a blast! it's a pretty spot.

Re: GCNP Backpack Trip Questionzzzz

if you get the permit to stay at one of the TWO group sites at Phantom, you can hang there. the poles that are used for pack hanging (critters) are perfectly spaced for straps. four of us hammock veterans went down to educate the rangers and staff on hammock use, there is no hanging from trees at ph...

Re: Backpacking Thompson Trail/Black River area

no greater thrill than landing a 12" smallie on a fly rod. use a 3wt with a hopper variety. or floating, jointed minnow. or just about anything that moves. browns and rainbows in there, too. take rain gear.
