- Feb 6, 2008Thanks for the input MS Bridgman, Jamie, and billybob
To MS Bridgman---use a search engine and the name "Ron
Bridgman" and UAAC as your search terms. Strange that
there is so little online about a person who saved the
National Speleogical Society from fading away. But,
that was over 40 years ago.
It is a small world online. One book I sold on
amazon.com went to someone named Butterbaugh. My
father's best naval aviation friend was Johnny
Butterbaugh---a fellow chief at the end of the war who
accepted a "promotion" to ensign after the war when
enlisted pilots started to be phased out. The
Butterbaugh who bought the book claims all
Butterbaughs are related.
Another book I sold went to a professor in California
named Lougee. One of our hikers is named Lougee. As it
turns out---all Lougees are descended from Huguenots
who fled France after the St. Bartholomew's Day
Massacre-settled on the Isle of Jersey for a few
generations (where my ancestors lived) then came to
America in the 1600's.
Jamie: the one place I have never been (besides the
Frog Tank Trail) is Reed's Water on Coffee Flat Trail
past Dripping Spring. I would like to camp there the
night before I go to Peralta Trailhead to meet the
rest of the group and replenish supplies. If I found
the area unsuitable for hammock camping---I was going
to retreat back to the Dripping Spring area. I know
there are nice trees in the Red Tank area. I spent a
lot of time here when I was updating ARIZONA TRAILS by
David Mazel into SOUTHERN ARIZONA TRAILS by both of
us. If you think backpacking is enjoyable---try tax
Can you tell me is Reed's Water is suitable for
hammock camping, please????
billybob---your neighborhood around Chesire is one of
my favorite areas for yardsales----I even bought a Red
Chinese twin lens reflex there for $7. The seller
thought no one would know what it was. When I picked
it up---looked at the Chinese characters, and asked,
"Is this a Chinese Seagull TLR????" she looked dizzy!
Can you tell me if those two streets in your old
neighborhood, Eddy St. and Nelson St. are named after
Nelson Eddy---the movie star????
After passing Reavis Ranch you get into nice
ponderosa-but, they are singed a bit.
Next fall I hope to hike to Reavis when the old
orchard is producing ripe fruit to supplement what I
can carry in and extend my stay!!!!!
