In response to olesma's reply: You are sick! :pois: I love the feeling of having completed a big, long research paper, but the process drives me crazy. I have to admit though - writing papers for my masters is a lot more enjoyable than those for my B.A. - For example I've really enjoyed researching...

All this talk about school reminds me that today is the last day of Summer school at ASU and I have a paper to turn in by 5:00pm today.

20+ pages on outdoor recreation programs for adolescents. It's been really interesting to research.

I hiked it on friday and had a great time. I came back and tried to describe it to my wife and in-laws and they insist that we all go back and hike it again on Saturday. (My wife is 5 months pregnant and insists that she can at least make it part way) This time I'm thinking of going in the back way ...

I own a 1971 Volkswagen Bus named "Ginger" I know they are supposed to be the easiest car to work on but I'm a novice. I do some stuff myself and have friends show me how to do the stuff I don't know how to do. If I really screw something up I send it to Richard down at German Autotec. Maybe someday...

I just hiked 8 miles on Friday - 3Qt. water, a camera, beef jerky, dried fruit, pb & j, tp, and a small first aid kit. The only thing I wish I would have brought is rain gear (maybe just a small emergency poncho). But since it only got dark and didn't rain I was fine. That is pretty typical of what ...

Re: Spanked by a Monsoon

my son has ever seen - pretty pathetic seeing as he's 3 yrs old. He was a little scared. But he didn't cry - he just kept asking me if I was okay. Candy made it all better though. He told me so. "Daddy, I scared. But candy make it all better." Count your blessings. While we were getting lit up by a...

Horton Creek - This Friday or Saturday (Aug 1 or 2)

I was thinking of going up and hiking Horton Creek this Friday or Saturday. I want to hike from the all the way through from the campground to the fish hatchery (or visa versa). I was wondering if there is anybody out there that would be interested going so we can shuttle back to the trail head.

I went to Philmont with my family when I was just a little guy. So I don't think I will be much help, however I know several people that have been recently and I might be able to find out some information if you can't get any first hand stuff.

I was raised jewish. As such I have the same basic set of morals as christians. When I tried to become a scout I was, to say the least, shunned. I am asking; Why? To tell you the truth I am surprised that you were shunned from the Boy Scouts because you were raised Jewish. To quote Olesma - "don't ...

Does the tall club teach a set of skills that might be valuable in your life or hobby? No, it is a purely social organization. If the boyscouts were a purely social organization then that would be a true to life anology; since they're not, it isn't. The boyscouts teach a set of skills that is hard ...

So do people who don't meet your standards of morality not deserve to be scouts? Here is an true life analogy: Did you know that there is a Phoenix Chapter of the "Tall Persons Club" You must be at least 6' 5" tall to join if you are a male, 6'1" tall if you are a female. I personally don't meet th...

Heck, they still use metal canteens! Ha! Truly a sign of the times :lol: For me, that's my concern, that the children are not being taught state of the art ways or using state of the art equipment. For example public schools, they have antiquated computer systems, older text books, etc. Will the ba...

My favorite time to start the hike in is between 3:00 - 4:00am. That way you can get to the village about 8:00, check in and your good to go. You'll be at the campground early enough to get a great spot and You'll be swimming before noon. If you leave that early you will also miss the "great havasup...

Boy Scouts - Good or Bad?

From time to time I have read some forum posts that make reference to Boy Scouts - mostly in a negative manner. I was wondering how everyone feels about them. I know that it can sometimes be a downer to be out on a trail and come across a herd of noisy teens, but on the other hand I am in full suppo...
