Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Superstitions hike anyone???????
- Thanks 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!!!!!

I guess being in the Midwest (Chicago), that is why we have have both flea markets and swap meets. The famous one here is the Maxwell Street Market which has been around for better than 100 years.

I tried living in Ft. Lauderdale-- teaching at Broward
Community College and Florida Atlantic
University-- --but, allergies drove me out.
At that time the Nicaraqua Contra war ended-lots of
supplies ended up on the market. I found a person
selling at the Plantation Flea Market--what is called
a swap meet out west---a pirate's wharf on the Gulf
Coast. He charged $5/#10 can. I bought many cases. I
wish I had bought many more.
Starting to run low exc. on scrambled eggs---so,
recently bought a case of freeze dried cottage cheese.
The instructions say to mix with water at at least 72
degrees F. That wasn't available-so, after using a
steripen I tried mixing with Superstitions creek water
and found the curds just floated. You can eat
dry---sort of a sweet/sour taste. Very light for its
