Solo Adventurers | Three things you shouldn't leave home without

Adventuring solo can come with consequences, are you prepared?

There is nothing like getting together with a bunch of friends for a fun weekend in the backcountry. It brings people together from all over the state to create wonderful memories with each other. A lot of people recommend you never go alone. But for some of us, it's a necessity.

Solo adventures give you a chance to travel at your own pace, see what you want to see, go where you want to go, and camp where you want to camp. It removes the obligation, worry, and need for a strategic plan. You can spend your time focused on the beauty, quirkiness, and curiosity nature provides. 

Along our journey, we find ourselves in another dimension. No cell phone, computer screen, or fellow human to distract. No bright lights, police sirens, or pavement to remind you of day to day life. We do it because sometimes, we need to get away from it all. However, adventuring alone can come with some major consequences.

The historic Mogollon Rim Road | 25 miles PERMANENTLY CLOSED

532 mile proposed trail closure threatens Rim Road

Yup, you read that right. A large portion of the Mogollon Rim Road ( Forest Road 300 ) is under threat of closure upon completion of the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest Travel Management Plan. A section that spans the distance of approximately 25 miles from US 60 to SR 260 may become inaccessible. Its a beautiful backcountry drive along the northern border of the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.

120,000 acres of pristine wilderness burnt | Woodbury fire

A look at the destruction of the Woodbury fire


I took a drive to the Reavis Ranch trailhead yesterday. The destruction from the Woodbury fire is immense. It looks like a completely different place.

Although wildfires are a naturally occurring thing, we should do our best to mitigate human-caused fires. Because those who need to hear a lecture, will not listen. We will not even go there. We will be ready next year with an all-new approach to wildfire education.

Public commenting open for Apache Sitgreaves National Forest Travel Management Plan


The Apache Sitgreaves National Forest is asking the public to submit comments concerning a travel management plan in northern Arizona. These changes will affect access to our public lands. It's important that the public gets involved. 

In this article, you can find links to review documents, view maps of the affected areas, and submit comments online.

Gold Tooth Pranty | The Arizona pioneer who was lost in history

The story of a lonely Arizona pioneer named Gold Tooth Pranty


Fred Pranty was a rancher, prospector, hunter, and Arizona pioneer whose story was lost throughout history. He lived a solitary life in the Sierra Ancha mountains and was known as the greatest mountain lion slayer in the territory. He was said to have graced everyone's dinner table ad was a cheerful, joyful man who never bothered anybody. He was described as a medium built, fair complexion, finely educated man and nobody could understand why he was out prospecting.

Parashant National Monument | Episode 1 Day 1

Before I made the trek into Parashant, I had no idea of the beauty that was just hours away from my home. It's easy to underestimate the Parashant. I personally have seen so many pictures of the Grand Canyon, I feel like I've been there a million times. But there is nothing like camping right on the edge of the canyon.

One can easily travel to the north or south rim by passenger car if you wanna immerse yourself in the crowds. I personally prefer solitude. The Parashant National Monument provides just that. So we took the opportunity before summer was in full swing.

GPS | Your best friend on the trail

An important tool in the Arizona Backcountry


I'm a huge fan of the Backcountry Navigator apps. It's got to be one of the best GPS programs available. I'll be honest, I've never used anything else. Having a GPS is important for many reasons. Knowing what type of land your on will help you understand what rules need to be followed. 

After fooling around with Backcountry Navigator Pro for about 2 years, I won't even consider any other program. It does exactly what I need and then some. After purchasing the app I went out and got an Android tablet A. Using the app on a tablet provides better visibility and you can see more area on the map. With the tablet secured to my suction cup windshield mount, it serves as a great GPS unit.
