Damn; did this involve two people? Think I may have seen something about it through a friend of a friend if so. Any details on the trail/off-trail excursion?

@azbackpackr My brother has lived in Jacksonville for the last 8 years or so; usually visit him there once every two years. For a lot of the reasons you said, it's a fun place to visit, but I don't know why he claims it's so damn great to live permanently. We grew up in coastal Virginia so are used...

I'm wondering if I fell asleep for a year here and you guys had a dry one compared to the last year I experienced? I've passed out before but don't usually lose THAT much time

Has anyone done this drive since the monsoon season? Particularly looking to see about Woodbury TH as I've read that tends to be a bit better to access than Rogers Trough.

Yeh, seems somewhat "harmless" but seems pretty clear he's already admitted to the fraud but trying to make it... less bad. His argument appears to be, "Hey, I won't charge you for this but when you need a real tow, let me know and I'll put in a claim for that, wink wink, nudge nudge....

A "shoe repairman" is a cobbler, as an FYI. It's a legit specialized field so think they deserve the title.

Re: one night in the Superstitions

"Less Deserty" really isn't going to happen in the Supes. A little less on the Eastern side but I wouldn't be recommending that to anyone right now; those trails are often overgrown in normal years and with this monsoon season, they're probably super special. What do you consider higher mi...

Starting to email a week in advance would be fine and they should be able to figure out something for you; they take care of thru hikers. I've only ever heard of people having to take one zero/nero before getting a permit and even that is pretty rare. As you've read, they'll just put you up stock si...

@The_Eagle They claim it's in 47 languages which I suppose is easy enough/possible since they're not making sentences. Bet there are still a bunch of "dirty" words in some of those, though, as they say the word lists are scrubbed by humans to remove words that might be controversial/probl...

@Magna Welcome; you may also want to joing the AZT Class of 22 facebook group. 1. The lows can vary greatly, with the potential of -8 C in the areas North of the Mogollon Rim in March but the more expected range would be -4 to 2.
