  1. Right now crampons. I would say trail runners over boots but I'm not a big boot guy for hiking. Regular sneakers prob not a great idea if planning on going below the rim
  2. Haven't posted in a while but things finally starting to turn for the better. Still dealing with a ton of lower body stiffness and lack of range of motion. Been stretching daily it's getting good enough to start ramping up into my gym program again. Knocked off a few short sections of the AZT. Trying to gear back up to knocking out a few flattish sections in the low desert this winter. Planning on doing a 120 mile backpack from the mogollon rim to Flagstaff late spring over a week. Over the next few months I'll be helping a friend of mine build out a hiker hostel type setup on a piece of l

  4. > @fore_life said: > If I never played it, then I wouldn’t have seen Matt hit driver putter wedge on a 600+ par 5. Easy 5 Haha Such an awful golf hole. Course is so bad it's kinda fun with some of the wonky shots you need to hit.
  5. Great series Ken Burns did a fantastic job overall. Feel like leaving Chris Ledoux out was a big let down for me. Almost felt like needed one more episode to discuss the modern revival of classic influence modern outlaw type guys like Stapleton whiskey Meyers Tyler Childers whitey Morgan etc.
  6. South Rim GC a couple weekends ago. Dispersed camped right outside park boundaries. ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQB3OXVUAAv_ZR.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQB4EpUwAAiaiD.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQB2dzU8AEor2h.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQBmxiUcAAvfz0.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQBlMAU8AATtN3.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EGQBlxPU0AAIRXB.jpg "") Oh and some of my hiking friends ran into this guy on a seldom used trail kinda near Prescott AZ.

  7. > @fore_life said: > We miss you Matt!! Thanks buddy. Once I can start swinging again maybe we can hit up mountain shadows or the other short course by you. Right now if I swing a driver I might blow out every single ligament in my foot. But easing back with irons wedges might be a lot easier on me
  8. Man just realized Wednesday marked the 1 year anniversary of me actually making a golf swing. Good news is my latest round of PT is making more progress. Hopefully I'll be able to support a golf swing on my lead ankle soon and actually get back to playing some golf.

  10. Moab, arches and canyonlands is an entirely separate trip for me. That area needs at least a week just on its own with all the 4 wheeling and hiking available.
  11. Spent a long weekend in Utah, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, a quick drive through of Bryce Canyon NP and a more thorough exploration of Capitol Reef NP. Grand Staircase is pretty frigging epic I can't wait to get back up there and explore more around hole in the rock road etc. I was able to knock out 3 hikes totaling 13 miles pretty much flat walking over easy terrain although walking in super soft dry beach like sand is hard work. I'm back in PT we're working on lower back/core/chest to tighten everything up in hopes that it brings the ankle muscle functionality back, but thing

I'm thinking of adding a lift kit on my Tacoma and then get new [xd wheels](https://4wheelonline.com/XD-Series-TruckWheels.1180 "xd wheels") and Wrangler Duratracs. > > > >
  13. Cleo's Bath, Pinecrest lake. Brutal day that hurt way more than it should for a 7 mile hike with a little class 2 scramble. Got a later start than I would prefer. Ended up being a little over 90 degrees and the heat took it's toll on us. Ankle swelled up bad and back was killing me, pretty clear that I should not be hiking until I can get all this sorted out. Was absolutely beautiful though. ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EBFWCd5VAAASNrd.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EBKH6fBU0AANMUM.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EBKH-BfU0AAELWD.jpg "") ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media
