  1. I'm trying to plan a short backpacking trip with my boys and am thinking of heading down the Samaniego Ridge Trail up on Mt Lemmon. I'm curious if anyone here is familiar with that trail and knows if Shovel Spring and Walnut Spring are reliable water. Planning on hiking to Walnut Spring to spend the night and then back out the next day. Thanks in advance!

    Samaniego Ridge Trail

    Yep, I've backpacked plenty and will filter the water just need there to be some to filter. Guessing on a year like this there will be just curious if anyone has been there and familiar with the springs.

    Sold

    Good deal, on a side note, would love a review of the Outdoor Vision Bino Harness.

    And how is that different than ASU (or any other team) fans? Just go back in this thread to see ASU fans flapping their gums after losses.

    Do we really need a border wall?

    Do this and Mexico might build a wall to keep all the lazy butt Americans out.
  6. If you have meat at WGP in Tucson, go pick it up and don't delay. I haven't been able to drop my elk off and they are turning away others because people are slow to pick up. I'm not aware of any other good options in Tucson so I have my second fridge crammed full of boned elk meat.

    Shed season

    In more northern states the deer and elk are much more stressed from winter and pressure can be detrimental. Our animals in AZ live a pretty leisurely winter and are able to recover just fine, so pressure isn't that big a deal. Pressure in the fall is way worse with the absurd number of tags given out.

    In search of Civil engineer

    Most of what is said here is spot on, except for the last part. If it is a publicly funded project then the engineer is selected based on qualifications, not price. If it's your money you can do whatever you want with it. Not all civil engineers or architects are know it alls, I certainly don't think I know everything. Make sure you get a PE, every single one registered in the state can be looked up on the state board of technical registration website. Make sure they know the permit process for your jurisdiction. Most good engineers are slammed right now so you will likely spend a premium. Good luck!

    Swaro 12x50 or 15x56HD?

    I think the 12x vs 15x comparison depends on use. I have extensively reviewed both side by side as I own the 15hd and my brother in law owns the 12el. The 12s are slightly brighter and clearer but there is a difference in magnification that my bro in law and I both agreed is noticable when looking for details, and not just at long range, we noticed it at closer ranges too. If you plan to continue to use your 10s and don't mind carrying both, get the 15x. If you want to carry only one pair and are willing to retire the 10s, get the 12s. I plan to buy the 12s at some point in the future and will use my 10el, 12el, and 15slc hd all depending on the situation.
  10. There are even more details in that People magazine article that is referenced. Scary how the brain can just flip switches like that.
  11. Ask your brother, he deals with surveyors on a regular basis.

    Apache-Sitgreaves Forest Closures Imminent

    Not sure why they would close the Wallow Fire area. It needs to burn again badly!!! Plus there isn't enough fuel for a big fast moving fire.

    Bad Neighbor

    Is he uphill or downhill? Remember, $hit flows downhill!
  14. As long as you aren't being stupid, like firstcoues said 300 yards is a good number. Closer than that you really need to go into ninja mode
  15. My camper fridge stopped working and I believe it has an ammonia leak. Any recommendations on where to take it for repair in NW Tucson? Thanks!

    Did Hurley give up on his team? Awfully calm on the sidelines. Two different possessions in the last minute with a chance to tie, chaotic offense, and never called a timeout. Weird!!!

    At 20-11, and 8-11 in their final 19 games, is there any way ASU makes the tourney?

    Hurley was classic tonight. He still hasn't learned that when you aren't at Duke, the refs don't give you every call.

    Does ASU know how to spell NIT?

    ASU has their work cut out for them. Currently 4-5 in conference. Let's say they go 5-4 down the stretch to finish 9-9. I don't see a 9-9 ASU team making it this year unless they do really well in the conference tourney. If they go 6-3 to finish 10-8 they might have a little more wiggle room in the conference tourney. Tonight's game at Washington could be a turning point. Lose tonight and it will be hard to recover from a 4-6 start. Win tonight to get back to 5-5 and that 10-8 record starts to look more feasible. The computer might give them a 76% chance but I don't see the committee giving a 5th or 6th place pac12 team a bid even with their non-conference resume.

    How bout them Devils!

    All this hype about Arizona's fall from #2 to unranked. Arizona has only lost 1 game since. ASU got all the way up to #3 and has since gone 3-5 and will be unranked next week. Tough when other coaches actually put a game plan together to beat you rather than overlook you.

    Another home loss for ASU. They were firmly a tournament team but that bubble is getting bigger now.
