    Any hikers here?

    Hmm... I think I mentioned earlier I wear Wright Socks. I'll have to look into Smart Wool socks when I'm next in the market.

    I wear just regular T-shirts for short sleeves; if it is warm enough to wear short sleeves here I know I'm going to sweat heavy and nothing will stop it. But there is often a large temp gradient here because of the dryness, and if I start in a long sleeve, odds are I'll be sweating a lot by the end. Plus I mentioned the Nathan water backpack, that adds a big sweat source. OM, you should try a Smart Wool. The one I have is a little heavier than the two Lulu shirts I have.

    Interesting. I grew up in PA but have lived in Phoenix 30 years. When I go back now all I see is a bunch of trees blocking the view. Or grass, but grass all looks the same. Here, a few weeks ago we drove through Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument on our way to Mexico and had views like this: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x80d5588a70508043:0x6358b8129694d4a0!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4shttps://lh5.googleusercontent.com/p/AF1QipMj_R_fBiXIhEkbngLt7FF4iP1VZvdWlB95tSfa%3Dw320-h240-k-no!5sorgan+pipe+national+monument+-+Google+Search&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipMj_R_fBiXIhEkbngLt7FF4iP1VZvdWlB95tSfa&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjO4q-cm5vhAhVdCjQIHWBODXsQoiowFHoECAwQBg

    Mueller Time is officially over. Predictions?

    Well, there are "supporters" like people on her team, and there are "supporters" like people posting from their mom's basements wearing bagina hats. I presume Politifact meant the latter, because the former still implicates her.

    1-3 hours is a stroll through the woods if you are strolling through the woods. These are steep trails which are often as much climbing as they are hiking.

    This is one of the dumbest posts I've ever seen here. Thank you for setting the bar so low, and may god have mercy on your soul.

    It seems like the difference is "supporters." So politifact's position is that it wasn't Hillary's camp but rather supporters who weren't officially affiliated with Hillary. Got it.

    Mike or others, can you help me to understand the bolded? I don't follow these words. She circulated the rumor but didn't promote the theory?

    As I recall our AT hikes were day hikes only. We camped but I don't associate those with the AT. Current hikes have been 1-3 hours, but most of the trails we hike are double black diamonds so they are challenging. As I mentioned I can see us adding a camper to expand out to other mountains in AZ. There has been so much rain, the plants are amazing. I don't know the Altra style. I just looked, they say TMP, Gaiter Trap, Inner Flex, Zero Drop. Camelback and Squaw/Piestawa are hella crowded; one of the things I like about South Mountain is that it is relatively empty other than major trail heads.

    Wife (32D) and I have gotten big into hiking in the past year; we live just off of the Phoenix South Mountain preserve which has tons of trails. I grew up a boy scout in NE PA and hiked the Appalachian Trail many times, great hikes. If you ever get the chance to do some desert hikes I highly suggest it. As far as gear, wife and I both use: - Altra trail runner shoes. Shoes are a personal preference but we both like the lighter weight trail runners which allow us to build ankle strength. - WrightSock socks. Double layer, these socks are awesome for tough trails. - Nathan water backpacks. Hydration is critical in the desert. - For "winter" wear I like Smartwool (REI) and Lululemon long sleeve shirts. I quoted winter because one of the challenges of desert hiking is the temp gradient -- it can be fairly cool when you start but you build up a sweat quickly. Both brands keep you warm but then let you breathe. Someday soon I can see us getting a camper and branching out to other locations.

    I think I have a working account, but I've been too busy to troll them. I'll look into it tonight.
