Re: Tule to Peralta

Lots of stuff going on at the end of the semester and such. 2 projects due the the following week and the start of finals means that I can't spend 18 hours hiking in the supes that weekend. Add recovery time to that and I'll get nothing done and my grades will suffer. That is unless one of you guys ...

Re: Tule to Peralta

I am considering wussying out. I hiked 23 miles in the everglades in one day and that was super tiring, I dont think I could have tacked on an extra 14 miles that day. Don't want to jeopardize my own or the groups safety. Man I will feel like a wuss if I cancel, plus I havent hiked with you guys in ...

Re: Tule to Peralta

Is someone going to start a separate event "Rescue the Tule to Peralta dayhikers" leaving on the same date? Might be a good idea.

Re: Tule to Peralta

Tule Trailhead is accessible by car isn't it? Jeez, adding mileage like its nothing. You guys can add mileage to meet up with the campers, but I'm continuing to trudge along towards Peralta. I'm not going out of the way on this trip for anything. I am all for taking the route with the least AEG, the...

Re: Tule to Peralta

I'm in.... ugh dude. 36 miles in the supes is far different from 36 miles anywhere else. I will be hiking in long pants for a change. Hello catsclaw. Hopefully I'm capable. FYI I plan on sleeping the entire drive to the trailhead and napping HEAVILY all day Friday. Unfortunately Prop 203 didn't pass...

Re: I Voted Today!

I voted early... some of the most important votes I cast were for ballot initiatives. Happy to see that 75% of voters shot down an attempt by the legislature to raid the conservation fund, and 70% of voters voted to keep first things first. The question is Why do AZ voters always shoot down these ri...

@chumley

So now NPR is the devil?

Comeon though, NPR is the most non-offensive, non-partisan, non-exciting forms of media I've ever heard. They specifically hire people who cannot physically become excited or enthusiastic about anything.

Re: Four Peaks Mother Lode (10/24)

You may be in for a rude awakening if you think this is a "hike". I really have to agree with Tough Boots on this one, do Browns Peak first before even considering the Mother Lode. Once you start you are pretty much committed to a very long day with very few escape opportunities. Great advice. I am...

Re: Four Peaks Mother Lode (10/24)

Is there a better date that works for you guys? This is just a generic date, if needs be we can push it back to November or up a week or two. Keep in mind this was going to be in the supes, so thats why I put a late october date, we will now be up at 7000 feet for a good portion of the hike. Althoug...

Read the description and triplogs for the lode... this hike definitely isn't for everyone.

Re: Tule to Peralta

Should we post a separate backpackers trip following the same route? Truthfully that is what I'd be most likely to sign up for.

Re: Tule to Peralta

Since this is thanksgiving weekend most should have Friday off. The overnight group (if somebody wants to start one) could go west to east starting Friday and the mentally unstable day hikers would go east to west starting early Saturday. I'd give a key to the overnight leader in case somehow the 2...

Re: Trans- Supes (south to north day hike)

I was thinking maybe, Dutchman to Whiskey to Red Tanks, and then making our way past La Barge and Charlebois and maybe finding the master map before heading out to Canyon Lake. That would be around 18 miles. Any other suggestions for routes? I haven't done Black Top Mesa so we could also go stright ...

Re: Tule to Peralta

Why don't you all stop being sadistic and make it an overnighter? I mean come on guys, I don't want to sit in a car for 4 hours after a 35 mile dayhike. And thats what it will end up being with that shuttle and then driving back home. Leave house at 4AM; get back at 4 AM the next day. Maybe I'd be i...
