Thanks again everyone for all your help!!! By the way Abe, I love your stick :) I just think it might be too cumbersome for me…??? Thank you Nay_Nay. My stick is my best friend on the trail. On steep trails a pole/stick is very helpful; in addition, the one positive thing I did note about poles men...

I agree, but I sure wouldn't try taking Abe's stick away! Ahhhh, come on, I ain't that bad. I just love my stick, had it over 10 years when I bought it at a army surplus store in Prescott before I went on a backpacking trip into the Grand Canyon. It ain't pretty, it ain't high tech, but it's the be...

Try the Lynx Lake Recreation Area just outside of Prescott. Plenty of short trails, picnic sites, and fun.

Which reminds me: Lake Wobegon is still a "no fee" lake. The other 9999 will cost you a boat sticker fee. :lol: Really! I was not aware of that. Good points bigracket1. However, simplistic as I am and a lover of Edward Abbey's work, I cannot help but wonder what the true roll of the national forest...

I can go to a city park and feed the ducks for free. Good point on several counts nasbond;however, I would counter that feeding ducks is a low impact use and some other uses, say baseball, football, soccer, and perhaps swimming pools may have charges to maintain O&M costs, electric bills, ect. Yes,...

A couple of thoughts/questions/comment. 1) Is it best to air those grievances of "fee demo's" to the forest service, 1 of 7 agencies under the United States Department of Agriculture? http://www.usda.gov I do not recall anybody mentioning the USDA and they are after all in charge of "192 million acr...

Well, after posting this Staurday, a nice hike Sunday, and reading all of your comments, I think I will keep it my secret. Yesterday's hike in the Granite Mountain region, my first believe it or not, after avoiding it all these years, reminded me there are plenty of other trail write-ups to be done ...

Trail Dilemma

:? Disclaimer. My dilemma may sound silly. First! Is there anyone on HAZ that penned a trail write-up for a summary, thought about a write-up for a summary, and then hesitates to submit or do not submit because they are afraid of the impact in the area from folks? Boys and girls of HAZ I face this d...

:lol: I remember the shelter half. Last time I used them was the summer of '96 at Camp Navajo. Each Marine was issued a shelter half, three wooden poles about a foot long that you would put together to make one pole, guide line, and five stakes. Heavy stuff to carry around, tight squeezing in and no...

I carry my BIC lighter. Nothing like flicking my BIC starting my campfire. Also, overkill, I do carry matches as well. For fire starter I carry a few small squares I cut from an old bike inner tube.
