Re: Camping this weekend or next week

my car doesn't have 4-wheel drive No need for 4x4... any part of Young Highway (AZ 288) that isn't paved is hard-packed dirt/gravel so a car is fine. If I recall correctly the campground is within a hundred yards of the highway. While there are a number of other camping spots nearby (like Honey Cre...

FR 403 - Sycamore Creek closed

All entrances to Sycamore (Bush/Beeline, Sugarloaf and Mesquite) that lead to lower Sycamore are closed through the weekend at least.
Lots of serious erosion issues at the creek intersection with FR403.
A road crew is expected to effect repairs on Monday 9/30/19.

Re: Hydration - Water isn't the best

More contradiction... "The more you drink, the FASTER the drink empties from your stomach and gets absorbed into the bloodstream , where it can dilute the body's fluids and hydrate you." Compare that to this... "For example, milk was found to be even more hydrating than plain water because it contai...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@chumley
Radar for last few hours looked like a ton of rain hit the Supes. Just noted a weather station in AJ at the foot of the Supes already at 2.54" for this morning.
In east Mesa we're already at 1.25" since 3 am.
Nice for us... not so much for flash flooding & erosion in the Supes.

Re: Need a ride

Don't worry my Osprey has built in whistle. If you ever do happen to encounter a bear, I would recommend bear spray rather than blowing the whistle... when we encountered a bear ambling toward us last year, blowing my emergency whistle just changed its amble into a full-speed charge. Thankfully yel...

Re: Hiking vehicles

the new RAV4 and similar Honda CRV is that they have steadily made it more passenger car like and less capable off-road. I haven't paid much attention to what's changed on RAV4's but each successive generation of CR-V has gotten lower. I'm not sure about any changes to how the CR-V does it's AWD ch...

Makes my blood curdle. Personally, I don't cry over spilt milk. I've only experienced curdled milk, not blood. However, on the numerous occasions I spilled blood I have yet to cry. While I may have uttered a cross word or two, looking back on it I can recall a number of times when I spilled blood m...

Re: What kind of mileage are you getting

Love my Tevas, just don't trust them for hiking as in the past. Same here... on the first part. As for the second part... I've lost no trust, I just changed my hiking from ON-trail hikes to mostly OFF-trail. So... when I got tired of spikes in the feet I switched to low-cut boots. And when they did...

Re: Non-cotton active sports shirts

We've been using organic Sapindus Mukorossi "soap nuts" for over a year with great results in fighting odors. We make use of the 'recycling' side benefit by draining the wash water (both wash & rinse water) directly into the tree-wells of our orange trees.

More than half the days in June were at or below normal, and 27 out of 30 were no more than 5 degrees above normal. That's a pleasant June in my book. While I agree June was quite pleasant, I'm either missing something or I must question your math... More than half the days in June were at or below...
