HAZIVERSARY

Postby cactuscat » Nov 16 2016 9:03 am

With the upcoming 20th anniversary of HAZ, I got to thinking about how I discovered my favorite website 14 years ago - before it was everywhere :) ... I think my story is kinda cool and I am wondering if anyone else found HAZ in interesting ways?

I literally found HAZ while hiking the Flatiron - I picked up a piece of paper on the side of the trail, which turned out to be someone's printout of the hike description from HAZ. I went home, looked it up, and have been here ever since! So glad that I picked up that piece of "trash", or I might have missed out on years of good hikes, and some really good hiking buddies!

Happy Anniversary HAZ! :app:

I'm pretty sure I found it through an Excite! search in my Netscape browser when setting up the hiking part of my Geocities page.

I was googling for information about the Arizona Trail, and this website kept popping up in all the search results. After a month or two of lurking, I decided to join. I've never regretted it, and I tell everyone I can - go to hikearizona.com! (Maybe one of these days, I'll even get one of those window stickers!)

@chumley
If you are ever in Chandler or North Scottsdale stop in to Juan Jaime's Tacos and Tequila and a meal and a drink is on me for all your efforts. Thanks again.

Thanks for pointing that out. I still need to collect :lol:

"Seriously? 2.5 miles in those conditions is an eternity. Who drags a nice benz up that road ... in the snow? I'm thinking somebody who can't afford the payments, reports it stolen and collects the insurance before the cops find it a few months later? :-$" -- @chumley

LOL.

@joebartels
This guy hasn't contributed at all, but has hiked with 110 people over the 47 year history of HAZ! And I thought it was only the 20th anniversary! :)
