Bell on a Bicycle

I'd much rather hear someone's podcast or ebook than a bell on a bicycle. Those cyclists must be ding-a-lings.

If it was me, (or if I had an accomplice), I wouldn't have half-assed it and left any of it up there.
It wouldn't be that hard to just chuck it over the edge.

How many decades was that mailbox up there?

Re: FR 41/FR 37: New River Mountain HP

The closest I've been to it is the 4234' peak in the section 2 just west of section 1 where it is. I planted a geocache there and really eyed that peak, thinking it really deserved a cache too. At the time, I had a dirt bike I rode out from Moore's Gulch off of Table Mesa Road. I've also been SSW of...

Re: Should ruins or caves on public land be secrets?

Well I was wondering if this was in response to my recent trip log with photoset where I mentioned an ancient fortress and a nearby hill with lots of petroglyphs. Maybe it's just coincidental timing. I stumble across ruins quite often, same with petroglyphs. There are such a huge number it's really ...

Re: Off Trail/Route finding skills - how to learn/where to start?

Personally, I rarely ever take a map or compass and rely on my handheld GPSr. If it breaks, I may continue on. I wouldn't be too concerned as I know how to get back where I came from. Navigating out here really isn't too bad as there tends to be lots of landmarks with open views to track one's locat...

Re: What's the best GPS?

I have a handheld GPSr, it's a Garmin 450T and is old and scratched up now. I use it a lot but I geocache and like to record my trips, something handhelds are currently better at than phones. The latter, just because of the battery needs. When I hiked the PCT and the CT, I left the handheld at home ...

I carried a BV 500 through the Sierra. I was mostly able to fit my resupply in it. The BV 9500 must be huge! Oh, I also carried a Samsung Galaxy S7.

Re: Accident on Piestewa Peak

Well, I for one am glad the child wasn't injured worse. Frankly, I think those baby carrier backpacks should be banned and using them is asking for heartbreak. That's something I would never carry a child in.

Actually I do that already. She just likes for trails to have names which can help local SAR groups not have to depend on just a GPS track.
If the names aren't known, why would SAR know what the names are?

Re: Illegal outfitter guides convicted, banned from national forests

@wildwesthikes Probably not any effective way to deal with it. However, if you know the youtube channel, you could flag the videos as illegal activity. Interestingly enough, youtube doesn't have a policy statement about creating content illegally, at least none that I could find. You could also rep...

Re: Missing hiker in the Mazatzals

Seeing how I met him on the trail the day he got lost I can chime in and say there was about a zero percent chance he would make it out on time. I could explain more but rather not. Very nice guy though. Perhaps he stopped off at the White Mountains first and was green blazing his way along the tra...
