Re: Havasupai Falls

I was there last weekend. The falls are swimmable. They have rebuilt the "dams" holding back the water. The campground is the worst of the damage, the creek now has 4 channels running trough it, so there is a bunch of islands everywhere. Lots of uprooted stumps amd roots, and most of the trees are d...

Re: Ok This may get tempers going!!

Are we talking about the same place? At the springs or at the bridge?

Re: I need a new gps

If you wanna go cheap, check into the magellen triton 300. I know a place here in the valley that has them new in box for 49bucks. Alot of people knock em, but ive never had any problems with the vantage point software or natgeo topo. Battery life stinks, only about 8-10 hrs. Just a thought. ;)

Re: Socks and Sandals

Joe, he's been hiking for about 6 years. 2 weeks on, 5 days off. I thought about it, but it only pays about 90 bucks a day.

Re: Socks and Sandals

Ive looked at those chaco's too, but as you said, pricey! A friend of mine who hikes for a living wears only those, and swears by them.

Re: Arizona Backpacking Club

Actually I do use a hammock from time to time! Made it out of an old parachute that was no longer "airworthy". Basically it started to pound me into the ground at a high rate of speed! Some of the best nights sleep ive ever had!

Arizona Backpacking Club

I,ve been thinking about joining this club for some time now. I normally do solo trips, and would like to start mixing it up again. Is anyone on here a member? Or is it a waste of time? For $15 bucks a year, it doesnt seem like a big loss. Also, are the trips they do challenging, or are they more fo...

Re: We are so lucky!

I work outside every day here in Phoenix, so I know all about the heat! I just tell people you do get used to it, by about October or so! Reminds me of a time I was up around Moab hiking and came across a group from Jersey or something.(Guessing by the funny accent) They looked like they were having...

Re: Man survives 100ft fall in Zion

Helmets are important! I had a close BASE jumping buddy who never wore one. Had a wall strike in the superstitions, hit his head really hard. He lived, but he's a bit slower now and his balance is waaaay off. He wears a helmet now when he jumps, but its a little late.

Re: drinking water at campground

Your right about filters, they dont kill viruses. I use on occasion sweetwater purifing solution kill viruses , but only if im taking water from a not-so-great source. Again tho its rare that I add chemicals to water, unless my life depends on it!
