    I am going to hike down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and then hike back up. Who wants to go?

    At one time I would have liked to have hit the bottom of Christy Canyon and then gone back up and then repeated this process until I was satisfied.

    Been there done half that......you are being strongly warned against trying to complete that trip in 1 shot. I walked down and caught a boat for a 5 day rafting trip. The same season a guy who tried that round trip in 1 day day died of exhaustion. The park rangers will advise against it. There is a water point halfway down but you will have to carry more than you can imagine. Ain't no joke. Be careful out there.

    I thought this was a thread about Beef's brain.

    Well, I'm planning on making it a one day trip down ... and a two day trip back up. And I know it's a serious trip down and back.

    Be careful man. On another note, I'm looking at cabins in Crown King. How far is the drive to Prescott on Senator Highway?

    I think it's about 30 miles ... you know, on dirt FS roads. I've made that trip on my quad and in my Honda Pilot a few times. Plan to get there early though, as the "town" shuts down around 5:00 PM! LOL! I think there is a bar, but I've only ever been mid-trip when passing through. Will you be riding an ATV?

    I used to make the trip the back way from lake pleasant but never went up to Prescott. Will be driving my truck, unless I buy something to keep up there.

    I live in Prescott and I only make the trip Down from there! It's a great trip. I usually park my trailer in Dewey. I'm sure it's just as good coming "up" from Pheonix! Give yourself a couple of days, otherwise you'll be rushed. PM me and we can get together in Prescott. It's a really cool place!

    Helicopter tour is fun! I've done that.

    Would be fun to get dropped off by a helicopter and hike back out.
