Re: looking for a challenging multi-day backpack trip in S. AZ

Is Superior Az. south enough for you? If so, it seems to moi that section 16 & 17 of the Arizona Trail is exactly the backpack you're referring to.

@azbackpackr
If you want some company, then give me a few days notice, and I'll be only too happy to join you for whatever you might chose. IT'S ALL GOOD IN THAT AREA.

Re: utah favorites

@azbackpackr Yo ABPer, On reading your post I had one reaction, "WHAT"? As long as you've lived in Arizona you've never been to Utah? NOTE to ABPer: there are adventure opportunities (make that "unbelievable adventure opportunities") north of the Grand Canyon. IMHO, everything south of I-70 could/s...

@trekkin gecko
Yo tg,

Still lookin' for ideas? For what it's worth, the following are links to the two spots I think are "final resting spot" worthy:

Re: utah favorites

@trekkin gecko YO tg, Is there any chance you might post your planned Utah adventure as a HAZ Event? I ask, because Utah is my favorite place in the WORLD , and I'm always looking for an excuse to return. If you'd like some ideas, feel free to check some/all of the Utah photo sets I've posted on Ha...

That's why Joe B invented the HAZ Events Page. As the James Earl Jones character said in "Field of Dreams" , "If you post it, they will come".

Re: Rosemont Mine EIS

There was at least one other attempt to mine the same area as the proposed Rosemont Mine back in the '90s. And as much as I'd like to believe that effort was quashed over public concerns, the reality for that venture was the same faced by the current Rosemont Mine, the price of copper tanked.

Re: Route Scout Gaps in GPS Data - Android

For what it's worth, the half hour boot up (Android upgrade?) of my phone on Saturday has me on Android 5.1, not the Marshmallow version of Android (version 6.0).

Re: Route Scout Gaps in GPS Data - Android

Did Google push out a major upgrade to Android a couple of days ago? When I turned my phone on Saturday morning I waited 20 or 30 minutes for the phone to boot up (the message said something like "activating 87 apps"?). If other HAZers have mysteriously started having problems with RS recently, then...

Re: Route Scout Gaps in GPS Data - Android

@Widowmaker Until my wireless provider, Republic Wireless, upgraded my Android operating system to version 5.1 a few months ago I could never get HAZTracks or RouteScout to record a GPS track in any Location mode other than "Device only". After the upgrade I was able to record in "High accuracy" mo...

Re: Route Scout Gaps in GPS Data - Android

@joe bartels Joe, I'm aware of those problems, so I made a conscious effort to close all apps (I only opened Chrome), except RS, brought RS to the foreground, and then locked the screen so no other apps would inadvertently open and compromise RS tracking. NO CIGAR! Check my latest track, "RS Fails ...

@Widowmaker
Do you ever stop for a few minutes? The last three or four tracks I ATTEMPTED to create quit when I stopped for a few minutes (hours?). Every one of the problematic tracks stop when I first stopped?

Re: Route Scout Gaps in GPS Data - Android

I believe I'm experiencing the same problem as cdeperro. Every time I stop for even a couple of minutes, e.g. I stopped to take something out of my boot yesterday, and RS FAILED to restart. Is there a RS setting that shuts down after a two or three minute pause? If so, How do I change that setting? ...
