Re: Bag Me a Peak!

@RWStorm What are you doing wasting your clairvoyant talents on this distinguished forum? You should be pickin' stocks, or horses (or your nose?). Both Karen and I were really shocked when P balked at the first scramble. Why did you naturally think of Paul? Given that Paul has hiked thousands (hund...

Re: Bag Me a Peak!

Yes, let the records show that Samba is far more advanced than those who hike peaks, with his snide comments and superiority complex. May sounds like a wonderful time to BAG those PEAKS, Hippy. "SNIDE"??? I prefer "SNARKY". "Superiority complex" - NO! But if you read my "Cat Mountain - ABORTED" tri...

Re: Bag Me a Peak!

Thank you for giving new life to this discussion. It's the reminder I needed to do some of the household chores that have accumulated over the last few (many?) months whilst I'd wasted my time doing non-peak bagging hikes.

Yo Lil' K,

I appreciate your "Oops", but it may be a little late unless I can figure out a way to rescind a curse. Know anything about witchcraft?

Re: How do you carry your handgun while backpacking?

Sorry fellow HAZers. Although I've been a big HAZ user for the last few years, I'd basically used this site for viewing and uploading photo sets and GPX tracks. I didn't even pay attention to the forums (fora?) until a couple of days ago. You can thank the annoying "Antennas On Peaks" banner at the ...

Re: How do you carry your handgun while backpacking?

Backpackin' Heat??? WHY??? I've mountain biked, hiked, and backpacked a fair amount over the last twenty years, and I NEVER had a reason to "draw down" on anything or anyone. To re-iterate - WHY do you pack heat? Oh yeah, Is there a one of yooz guys who's alive today, because they ventured into the ...

Yo JM,

I believe I addressed the "Because they're there!!" issue in my original post which kicked off this whole Mindless Competition firestorm.

It appears that this thread is "on life support" at this time. I'd like to thank all of yooz guys for participating in the discussion.

Yo BL,

Ya got me! So I'm a little given to hyperbole. Are you going to hold that against me? Even Mitt Romney has been know to stretch the truth a bit now and then.

Re: Mindless competition

@chumley I need people to "like" my comments, triplogs, and photosets. You claim you hike for noble reasons, but we can see through your charade. We know "It's all about the Babes". It's so obvious the babes go gaga over guys in hiking boots, trekking poles, hydration bladders, and all that "hikin'...

Re: Mindless competition

There is no better hiking in the whole world than in Utah. I did Grand Gulch via Collins Spring. Nothing but a bunch of boring old Indian stuff. Thank you rirjamy. Your "Indian stuff" comment was the slap in the face I need. "Boring old Indian stuff" makes "bagging peaks" seem worthwhile to moi. Me...

Re: Mindless competition

I guess it's time for me end this discussion with this one question. Have you ever hiked in Utah? There is no better hiking in the whole world than in Utah, and that statement is incontrovertible. But there are no peaks in Utah south of I-70, yet Utah hiking is the BEST.

Re: Mindless competition

We all get different highs from different things, whether it's biking to various bars around Tucson, :sl: My efforts in "bagging" bars in Tucson had nothing to do with knocking something new off of an arbitrary list. I was simply doing HOMEWORK. As a matter of fact, I may be re-visiting one or two ...

Ohhh. that reminds me I still need to do a hike starting with an X. You can scratch an "X" into the dust at the TH. It would be sort of like Winnie the Pooh living under the name of Sanders (literally). Why bother? Vape, et.al. have already saved you the effort of scratching an "X", http://hikeariz...

BTW (computerese for "By The Way"), when did hiking transition from a recreational pursuit to some goal driven compulsion? Pursuit?

Mindless competition

I'm fine with the antennas, antennae for my non-American brethren (http://grammarist.com/usage/antennae-antennas/); my objection is with those who MINDLESSLY seek out the peaks in the first place. The notion that "bagging" a peak is a worthwhile endeavor just "because it's there" is INSANE. I could ...

Paria Canyon - From ABOVE

A few friends of mine are headed up to the Vermillion Cliffs for a couple of days of exploration atop the VCs before they embark on a day-long kayaking adventure on Lake Powell. I have no interest in kayaking on Lake Powell, so to make a trip to the North Rim worthwhile for moi, I'd need someone(s) ...

I'll be joining some of my biking buddies from Scottsdale for a long weekend of biking and hiking in Sedona, http://www.meetup.com/mtbike/events/78196692/ . My focus will be on hiking, and I may or may not even bring my bike with me. My main reason for going is to spend a day hiking a loop off of Sc...
