i'm looking for other people interested in exploring the Mazatzals and doing a few overnight trips here in the upcoming 2020 spring season.
i'm 25 years old, AZ native, and have been backpacking since high school but all my buddies are lame and don't enjoy it anymore so looking for new people.
Ive done 100+ miles of AZT segments, lost cost trail, 45 miles in the High Sierras, few overnights in CO but really want to get out more in the Mazatzals as i live in Scottsdale and can make weekend trips out there pretty quick.
The heat/cold is not an issue to me and can do 15+ miles a day on trail and probably 8-10 off trail if need be in both extremes. Have all my own gear and don't complain. Don't mind carrying gear for friends too.
i would also be open to do trail maintenance as i don't mind working while out there.
Send me a message if interested or know of someone that is looking for similar situation.
