Re: Outside Magazine article on missing hikers

I think it's a major lapse of good sense for avid outdoors folks not to have one.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

@chumley Seems you are not the only one wondering about this swing and a miss by the weathermen... The National Weather Service is denying accusations it knowingly misled the public with its blizzard forecasts this week. On Monday, before the storm hit the East Coast, the agency forecasted up to a ...

Re: 5-day backpack in the Superstitions

@gardel As for a Plan B, any suggestions? And any guidance on what counts as hot? I would just disregard that warning about heat, you are going at the end of March, average day time highs are mid 70s and just below 50s at night. You are already going pretty far east as it is, Rogers Trough TH is at...

Re: Cherry Creek Rd FR 203

@joebartels Thanks Joe, that's about all I needed! Ya my suspicion would be that boulder is not being removed, if it is in fact past where they want to close the road. Does not really impact hiking in area, car camping on the other hand...

@Grasshopper Why do you care? I thought you were one who was looking forward to forever walking it! I am looking forward to that and feel free to hold me to that statement, as my opinion has not wavered. In fact, if I were FS, I would just leave boulder in road, as it is after Devils Chasm and the ...

Re: Found: Blue nylon stuff sack on Frog Tanks Trail

@The_Eagle This stuff? Been there at least since early 2014 Since May of 2012, Jim and I were probably some of the first few to come across it I imagine judging from some dates on the bread and other perishable items that were dated about two weeks before we came across the scene. Whoever the horse...

Re: It's time for Wilderness quotas

@chumley To echo Joe a little as well, the Supes still feel like wilderness to me and seem to fit the above description/expectations of a wilderness area pretty well. Yes a couple of trailheads area a little busy, but its people on foot and that beats mechanized machinery, or the encroachment of ci...
