Re: Nikon D40

I had a friend buy one about a month ago, he likes it so far. There was a deal post on slick deals but its expired now. If you google " slick deals 1279209 " it will pull it up. 2 lenses and the D40 and a 4gb card for like $479. Expired though, I watch that site pretty frequently and there are some ...

Re: Cathedral Rock...Hutches Pool

Well I didn't own a GPS when I climbed Cathedral. But when I did the window I came up with 4900' AEG, Cathedral is 500' higher than that and I believe A LOT more up and down than the window. I haven't done the loop itself to add Hutches pools, but I wouldn't be surprised with 7,000' AEG.

Re: the awesome hike....

I stay away from Sedona as much as I can. Sure it's "only $20" for a pass. But guess what, $75? for a NP Pass, AZ State Parks Pass, Catalina, Madera Canyon, Red Rock, Tonto Pass, West Fork....all those little passes and fee's add up to a lot of money. Sedona is a tourist trap in my book, having to p...

Re: the awesome hike....

The grand canyon has never disappointed me in 20+ trips there. Although some places I've seen in the Sierra's equally as nice just a further drive away.

Re: Scout leaders! - Check weather & gear before heading out!

Not exactly easy to leave in the middle of the night. Didn't they call for help in the morning? Kid was probably in his own tent and looked bad in the morning.

Re: Road to Table top and Road to Quartz Peak

I'm normally pretty open to taking my car places, but I wouldn't go to either of them in a passenger car. Quartz I did a few years back but I had a buddy in a Tahoe that went a few months ago, he said there were some nice dips now. Table top I wouldn't do either, partly because if you do get stuck, ...

As far as I know dogs are allowed on Echo Canyon. I couldn't find anything that says otherwise.

Re: A good Challenge for someone...

Well I've hiked them both in one day. Rim to river and back then straight over to Humphrey's and climbed it in snow most of the way. It was a long day but a fun challenge.

Re: Hiking etiquette with dogs

Some of the people I've came across hiking on trails should be on a leash before my dog. I can take a mule down in the Grand Canyon but I can't go for a hike with my Dog?

Re: Dry bags

If I did a two layer it would be several smaller bags inside one large trash compactor bag on the inside of my pack. AZ is rough, any plastic on the outside will tear. Plus you don't want to mess with the bag that much it will slow you down substantially if you have to take it on/off and put it in a...

Re: Dry bags

If your really going to be in the water a lot and doing some swimming to, I would get a Sealline boundary bag. I used one for a 3 day trip down tonto creek a few years back and it worked great. Not a single drop of water inside. If you really want to be safe, get the boundary bag then throw all your...

Re: Vehicles

My Jeep has been my trail vehicle when I needed to get to remote places. It hasn't let me down yet. Coincidentally is for sale now since I'm moving to Italy in 2 months.

Re: State Parks

I still don't understand what happens to the park when it's closed. Does it revert back to BLM land or State trust land? Do they close off access for good or just quite having services available there?

Re: Looking for a GPS

I love my Garmin 76CSX. I'm not a computer wiz and found it pretty easy to use. Even downloading the haz maps and getting them loaded wasn't that hard to do, might have taken 30 minutes to figure out. I haven't used my GPS for thru hiking purposes. But sure did use it this weekend finding the roads ...

Re: Reavis Ranch

Congrats on your first backpack. Reavis was my 2nd and 3rd backpacking trips, once from each direction. 20 miles in a 2 days is a good distance for a beginner, I'm still sore after those kinda days.

Keep the snow coming, I don't have an open weekend to climb Humphrey's until April 4-5th. I might need to take a day of leave and just climb it during the week one day.
