3 Days in "Paradise" with The Hippy

Post by Hippy »

November 9/10/11 2012 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

I'll be leading a troupe into the Supes for 3 days of fun, hiking, exploring (and cartwheels, can't forget the cartwheels!) So of course everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us.

Day 1 (friday)
Roughly 2 1/2 hour drive from Peoria (where I live) so we'll plan on a 4am depart from home for an early start.
Depending on who all will join us I may opt to leave the night before (because I love night hiking : rambo : ) but we'll take a vote.

We will begin at Reavis Trailhead (Reavis Ranch Via North #109) it's roughly a 9 mile hike to Reavis Ranch, there we will set up base camp

Day 2 (saturday)
From our base camp at Reavis Ranch we will head out to visit Circlestone and finish it up with a group bagging of Mound Mountain's peak at 6,266 feet. Shouldn't take the entire day to do this but we'll use the entire day to explore.

Day 3 (sunday)
Lazy morning of exploring the area followed by the 9 mile hike back to the vehicle(s) at Reavis Trailhead and home in time for supper!


3 days in the Supes, doesn't get any better than this....well, unless you're Elisha Reavis a century or so ago... :D

Meh.. I just got back and things didn't work out like I had planned.

The trip was fantastic but the flask I packed to leave you all leaked. Sorry no goodies stashed.

I will tell you this. There are still a ton of apples, as you walk in from the south stay to your right by the stream bed. The reason I say this is because I ran into some guys that were coming out that told me there were no apples. TONS still there.

The road in is in great condition.

I didn't want to leave and am trying to suss out a way to join you all.

Thanks Scott. Hope you can make it. At least for a simple overnight. Looks like we will have a good group!

THAT is just so cool! Take a pic!
For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

I tried to charge her for them. My sales pitch was that they were the most organic apples she will ever get...

She told me to shut up, took the apples, and walked off. :)

:stop: that takes too long to do when i'm HAZing (is that the correct term) at work from my phone ! although i'm at a computer now and I DID check so...yeah...


@squatpuke as one of the youngest members of the group....and the only (?! :o ) female, I can personally guarantee that you will have your hands full should you accept the mission of "keeping us in line" :lol:

I'm personally hoping that the next week and a half will give them just the time they need to properly ferment. Then we can really enjoy them! Moose, elk, deer, bear, javelina, and now there's also gonna be squirrel in the mix?!

SG, pretty sure I just had a mental image of SquatPuke & Chumley doing that...not pretty!

Chum, we can always pack them apples out and let them ferment in our backpacks for the next trip :sk:

Oh I just realized... you are going in from the north... Just so you all know.. I went in from the south (Rogers Trough) last weekend so the road conditions that I mentions is a bunch of bull.

but that makes me really want to go now.

I did get my 60s VW Karmann Ghia to the trail head there 10 years ago if that helps though. :)

the worst part of coming in from the north will be the washboarding and boat trailers on the Apache Trail... its doable for any car.
