Re: layering strategy for legs

i have down pants by montbell. i wear them around camp, after hiking long days, and find the 6oz is worth dragging along in temps below freezing. western mountaineering also makes a version. and i'm an ultralighter with a 3 season base weight around 8lbs. winter, its' about 10, due to larger tarp, a...

Re: Looking to go backpacking for a night...where do you suggest

getting away from the heat requires that you go UP, which direction you drive according to the compass has no bearing on this . so, go UP to mt. lemmon. wilderness of rocks trail is a good area. water in the creek about 3.5 miles in. and a good campspot or two can be had. although, there will be ppl...

Re: Summer HAZFest 2017

buy a new cooler my old coleman extreme is decent. of course, it does not have a "bear proof" claim. they are priced low tho, not insane like Yeti. coleman x-treme beat Magellan and Ozark for temp control in a few tests i've seen. there's a bunch out there. Rtic, Gatorbox, etc.. https://www.youtube...

Re: Bought a new pack, Deuter ACT Lite 60+10 SL

my second pack was an Act lite 40 + 10

felt much better to carry than the arc'teryx bora 65 that it replaced. it was half the weight, for starters.

decent packs. at par with osprey, imho, and much less $$.

Re: Flash Flood Fatalities Near Payson

man. this is horrible. i was just at wcc today, and as i saw the clouds rolling in @ the upper reaches of wcc, i told my hiking partner we need to be cautious. we left at around 2:10 pm. looking at the doppler on her phone, it was clear the huge storm system rolled right across the upper reaches of ...

Re: Damaged bu repairable Gear - Free

just throwing this out there, regarding tent zippers. there are places in the valley that will repair for a small fee. i believe REI "used to" do it.. but maybe hiking shack still does.

Re: Humphrey's Peak Backpack via Inner Basin Trail

the only reason i have never hiked this route, and camped at the saddle, is the lack of water along the route to Humphreys.
it's kinda odd, to me, now that i think of it.. Humphreys is maybe the only peak i can think of that does not have a reliable spring somewhere along it's trails. huh.
