Re: Cerro Rd Off of 60 Near Top of the World

@pixelfrog (PM sent) To go all the way through safely will require a 4x4, preferably one with high-clearance and at least a rear locker. It is one rough and nasty road. I've driven it a half dozen times over the last 4-5 years and while some areas are easy, others can be quite challenging, especial...

@Sredfield
Wasn't there a gal through-hiking the AZT with her young (9-10?) daughter last year?
If so, do you know if they completed it?

I agree there isn't enough revenue in it to justify paying some outside company to provide the 'technology & equipment'.

Re: Bear bagging

The only thing that was eaten by some animal were the thick nylon straps of my trekking poles! I never leave my hiking poles out overnight for that simple reason. They are either inside my tent with me or in the car when car camping. And for those times I might forget, I the possibility by thorough...

Re: Scary Individual at Peralta TH

The first person we came into close proximity to, immediately began to inform us, “dogs must be on leash at all times.” Seeing that Ozzie and Leo were leashed I was taken aback as to why this person was telling me the law, and using very aggressive body gestures and tone, to do so. Adrenaline began...

Re: 2017 Hazolutions

Due to recurring early & mid-year foot issues, 2016 was such an 'off-year' for me I didn't bother to set any goals for 2017 other than to bounce back a bit. Three months into 2017 things were looking good and it appeared I'd equal my 2015 levels of 1,041 mi & 311k' AEG. By October 1,200 miles & 320,...

Re: Bagging all peaks along Superstition Mountain

Not sure if that list includes every bump that has an elevation listed on the topo map though. In general , LOJ sticks pretty much to peaks ...

If not more, I'm sure it is quite a few.
I've seen many summit logs with entries by the LA area Sierra Club as far as eastern, so they do get around.

A six-pack of camo paint cans and some camo appliques on the windows could work wonders for you on that.

Re: Best Air Quality In The Phoenix Area

@SpiderLegs
The sheer amount of vehicles traveling the 'I-17 corridor' probably have more than a little to do with that.

The 'front' ridge of the Supes may just provide a bit of 'cover' from the worst of it, so I'm thinking you'd be better somewhere to the East.

@SpiderLegs When I first moved to AZ I had 'weak' ankles and came up with the same 'ankle brace' thought... until clued in it would be counter-productive long-term. So I went the opposite route, hiking with Teva sandals and sure enough it worked. IF I still hiked regularly ON trails I would still b...
