Re: Best Burger in AZ - Let the Debate Begin

The Chuckbox kicks pumpkin. Big Juan will set you up! It's so classy that you get to watch your burger grilled right in front of you. I know they have The Habit in the Valley now, and that place is dirty in a good way. Unfortunately my neighborhood location has become a weekly habit so I know where ...

Re: Bay Area Camelback

That place is a mess. No way I'm going back unless I hike from a trail head on the other side. I can certainly see why the locals are pissed.

Re: Pele will have her way: Lava flow heading for Pahoa

The 3 most spectacular things I've ever seen are the Grand Canyon, the north coast redwoods and Kiluea Volcano on the big island. Hawaii is a special place, and part of me always stays behind whenever I visit. Maybe part of it comes home with me instead. I live with the constant threat of an earthqu...

Sedona 5 Story

The 'Sedona 5' tried to do a rim-to-rim on mountain bikes during the federal shutdown in 1995. I thought it was an interesting story. While I admire the cojones to attempt such a thing, I also think that they got off relatively easy. The government could've made an example out of them, but the odds ...

Re: 2014: Rain, Snow, Wind, and Sun

What we need is a monster El Nino to wallop the southwestern quarter of the country with a deluge of precipitation. I don't care if the sun disappears until April if it means we get a ton of rain and snow out west. It looks like an El Nino is indeed on the way, but no one knows how powerful it's goi...

I know potash is cool and all that, but just imagine the ramifications if this thing spilled into the Colorado River. Perhaps potash isn't that dangerous.

If you include stops at the Bambi, Kon Tiki, The Bomb Shelter and Bay Horse I might have to come down. The old Asian lady proprietor of the Kon Tiki used to take our watches and credit cards as if our watches were nice, which they weren't, and we had money, which we didn't The Bay Horse was the fir...

Re: Looking for my 100th HAZ hiking partner

Just remember # 1, buddy. I thought I was a tough hiker before that trip.... I still remember the story you told me about making a bonfire out of the boots you and your classmates used to run in. Burning boots seems so much better than burning books. I can't believe I only have 4 trips with you and ...

Re: That one hike.

Its the one I'm looking forward to the most and it sometimes keeps me up at night thinking about it...but alas I still have several years before I can go and a lot can happen before then. The mountain rises almost 25K feet from its base.

Re: That one hike.

Icehouse Canyon, March 29, 2008. I had spent most of 2005-2007 in Tucson for work before being transferred to the Valley. I remember almost crying on my last hike in the Santa Catalina as a Tucson resident, and worrying about not having easy access to a mountain that soared from cactus to pine. I ch...
