  • Hi folks, This is a request for help from David B, a member of the Central Arizona Mtn Rescue, and devoted friend. He and his friend Darol need our support. Please read his message and think about how you can help these two men on their amazing mission. Thanks Jamie D ---------------------------------------------------------- Friends and Family, Some of you may have heard me speak...

  • You are very welcome. Reeds water has a big mesquite bosque near the windmill so yes, you shouldn't have any problem finding a suitable hammock spot. The creek is now flowing though, so you wont be able to hike in the wash as per my earlier suggestion. The good news is with the creek flowing you wont have to have a dry camp at Reeds water, which is not a reliable spring, usually...

  • Hi Robert, Sounds great. I will be heading up to Reavis Ranch in late April with a group. If you want to join us for another outing let me know. I've done this loop but we camped a La Barge becuase it was a large site for tents. There will most definitely be water in both Whiskey Spring, La Barge Spring and Bluff Spring after all the rain we've had. I went a few years ago in much...

  • Yep, a copious amount of clean water used to flush a wound (at pressure if possible) is really all you need. some studies suggest it's even potentially more destructive to the injured tissue to use peroxide or other anit-bacterial cleaning agents. Huh, good old mother nature provided H2O, how about that. Another thing I find really interesting is that according to the rescue peeps...

  • Hi Robert, I don't know anything about this particular hammock but the least expensive solution I have found for staying warm in my hammock is to use a couple of blue foam pads under me with a nice lower temp range than needed sleeping bag on top. Sythetic is cheaper than down of course. Now, if you are concerned about weight then down is better. Jamie in AZ --- In hammockcamping...

  • Thanks for the list mahem. If you decide to go with some water treatment I would suggest iodine instead of the chlorox. Other than treating water the idodine can be used as first aid to help bandage material stick to the skin better and as a flush mixed with water for an open wound. Also, you could probably get rid fo the 4 alcohol pads since you carry a bottle of alcohol hand...

  • Anyone that ventures into the backcountry, hammocker or not, is a potential survivalist. I think it's perfectly relevant. jamie in AZ --- In hammockcamping@^$1, "nessmuk15" wrote: > > Haven't we gotten a bit off topic here?

  • Probably wont have this with me, I would say that's a definitely. THat thing was certainly not invented with the hiker in mind. hahaha! In the Sonoran Desert, unless you are near a wash the chances of a person, that mind you is trying to conserve their energy, digging a 3 ft hole without a shovel is almost nil. The ground out here is quite hard, in fact they have issues getting...

  • Hi Rick, What's the book you are reading, if you don't mind sharing the title. I really enjoyed Cody Lundin's "98.7 Degrees, the Art of Keeping your Ass Alive". I think he mentions something about the solar still not being worth it too. jamie --- In hammockcamping@^$1, Rick wrote: > > Best idea is to try this out before deciding to rely on it.
