Re: Changing Hands & AZW Brewing present Craig Childs - May 15th

But that definitely doesn't explain how it's more valuable to other people. Why would somebody pay more for your "memory". It gets pretty far out. I've sat through quite a few discussions that started: "This was so-and-so's copy of [other person]'s book". For people who care about relationships and...

Re: Changing Hands & AZW Brewing present Craig Childs - May 15th

It depends on the kind of book. Some of it is just a reminder of having met an interesting person. It's interesting how much signed books mean in other areas of interest. Mrs. big_load has quite a library of weaving books, and people care more about have a signed book from somebody that they know or...

I can't remember how many times I've come across campfires that were just left burning, some very close to water, including one that had begun burning into the duff and the roots of a tree.

Grand Canyon ringtails can use most simple hand tools and some are licensed to operate heavy machinery. I've seen them unzip unattended packs in broad daylight and pull out the contents one item at a time until they got to the food. (The unzipping part is true).

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

It's been a crazy few days in NW NJ. The high Saturday was 82F. The high Sunday was 37F. There was ice on the roads early Monday morning before a 4" downpour with tropical storm-force winds and temps increasing to 60F. It's in the mid to upper 30s right now, about 20 degrees too cool again. Big swi...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

It's hard to fathom. We had snow again in NJ this morning. March was almost uniformly 10F below average, and April is closer to 20F too cool. It may hit the 70s this weekend, though. ETA: Now they're saying we could hit 80. It doesn't seem real. We've barely cleared 45 so far. It's been a crazy few...

Re: Haunted canyon/ Tony's ranch

I can believe that no one found the entrance to the cave. There are a lot of partly-filled holes out there. More than a few of them are bear dens or home to other large critters. Here's one in that general vicinity, probably an old prospect, but now somebody's home: https://hikearizona.com/photo.ph...

FWIW, I couldn't find it. I'm not sure I'd believe anyone who says they have, except for Tom Kollenborn.

Are the dates on those signs more reliable in AZ than elsewhere? We're lucky if they're within a year of the actual start.

Thanks! Big party last night, good times! ! They actually put 65 candles on my cake, and I blew them out with one giant puff.
Has it been that long since your last big birthday? Time sure flies. Happy Birthday!
