Dave,

THANK YOU for the great trip report.
Would a 9'6" hard side be able to negociate the route you took?
For flats, I have a tire plug kit that has worked well for me. A couple times, fix a flat didn't work for long. Where did you find the places you visited? In a book or from others in the forum?

Again, wonderful pictures.

Jeff

Yessir, a hardside could indeed make it everywhere except maybe the Tuckup trailhead. Mostly due to tree overhang and 1 area where the road is washed out and there is a bit of lean. And I've been needing an excuse to go to Toroweap for years now. Being in Arizona and hiking a bit in the Grand Canyon you just get to know about those places. Shamans was a bit harder to research as there's not much on directions to it. Lots of reading, mostly old books and some internet. Kelsey, Ron Adkinson and Sandra Hinchman have fantastic books on the area. Hope you make it. And both flats were un-repairable. Un-believable!

Hey Cal, I'm hoping you will show off some new areas for me to go, as well as your new camper upon pickup.

The photos, looking down into the canyon, gave me that dizzy tingly feeling. Yikes!

I wonder if there is something about donuts and road trips. My DH doesn't eat them at home but as soon as we get out on the road he wants a box of crumb donuts and a bottle of chocolate milk.

Dave:

I ran out of superlatives to describe your reports a long time ago...[emoticon]

I'll post both parts to TR at the same time.

The rock art photos are well framed, from the wide perspective context down to the macro. Tremendous!

I see a t-narrative book in the making for you soon [emoticon]

Cheers,

Just one little observation, Dave.
You call that dust?? That ain't dust. Now THIS is dust!

And this is the stuff they use to keep the dust down!!!

Hey Birdsong, I like your husband! I only eat Entaminns donuts on the road also. I don't even know why. I'll have to try the chocolate milk with.

Thanks Silver, you got me going on the ancient places. Pretty awe-inspiring aren't they?!
