Camping spots in central and northern Arizona?
Topic: Arizona research guide
June 19, 2019 / By Trina Question:
I'm still going to do some research on where the good spots are but it's always nice to hear from someone who has been there what the area is like. My husband and I are going to be taking a camping trip in March, not sure yet what part of the month. I would say more towards the middle. We want to camp for maybe 2 nights and be there 3 or 4 days. We are going all out on camping gear, we are taking some of our tax return and buying everything we need. (I lost all my great camping gear in my divorce)
Any spots you can recommend? I do want to stay in AZ going close to the boarders is ok but I would rather stay close to a main high way. My car is not in good shape and don't want to take it some place it can't come back from.

Havasu Falls is superb. I highly recommend it. The area is part of the Grand Canyon and has some of the most fantastic waterfalls out there. The hike is 10 miles down. So be prepared. OR The local Havasupai tribe also offers guided horseback trips, luggage transfers by packhorse, and helicopter rides to the canyon floor.Do a google search for all the info and pictures. Man the pictures are awesome! I can seriously go on and on about this place and everything I like about it. Good luck and have fun.

I take it that it more than a camping trip, it sounds like a long hike. How far can you get your vehicle to the place to where you will be camping.
One person can go back to the vehicle every other day to pick up some food for them.
Has both dogs gone on these type of hikes? Are they trained to stay near? Are the capable of killing their own food?
I used to go camping for a few weeks to a month up in the Rockies of NM. I had a Dobie was always went were ever I went. On one long hike she had rallied about 5 squirrels. two chipmunks to the truck. She had them in a neat little pile & put each one in the truck. She would disappear out of site as she ran ahead & up & down each side of the canyon. Some times she was way in front some times way in the back but she kept coming to us & then would go on with her own business.
I have to admit that she was a well trained dog for city or mountain. She was trained as a Police dog but was my companion also.
If the dogs are not used to hiking you may loose them as they run about. I don't think that you should put any weight on them at all. They couldn't run & enjoy the trip. With weight on their backs they could get all tangled in the weeds & trees & hurt them selves.

Hi, My name is Tucker and I am an Australian Shepherd.
A mature dog can carry about 20 to 25 % of their body weight.So, even the smaller dog could set out with about a 10 pound load. Look into buying dog food that requires the least weight for each day. But remember that they are working so you can't cut down their food.
I haven't gone on any hikes that long but I do have a pack - sometimes I wear it just for extra work on a walk. Sometimes I carry things my stuff for short hikes. You can read more about it on my website (the first listed below. The second is my blog - just for fun.)
You may try the white mountain's in eastern AZ they just opened a new camp ground up there .
Flagstaff ,Williams,Prescott, AZ. Try doing a search for camp grounds in AZ.

Water dripping out of your unit into your apartment is not normal. Usually it means that the drain is stopped up. While you may change your filters as you should, A/C's need to be cleaned fairly often. When they clean the inside unit properly the drains are cleaned out too. Stuff grows in there and they stop up. There are pills that are usually put in the pan under the A frame and that stops the goo from building up. Tell them in a letter and send it return receipt that the a/c unit is not draining properly and is dripping and causing damage to the apartment that you will not be responsible. Mention that the constant moisture can cause mold and you would like the a/c unit clean and the drain functioning properly. It isn't a big deal to clean the drain. Actually you can dump a 50/50 water bleach into the pan and it may kill the stuff in the drain. Sometimes you have to blow through it to force the gunk out. You have to be careful to not spill bleach anywhere important. . .like on your clothes or the rug. Yep, I'm one of those landlords but the drains from the a/c lay flat under the floor boards and go to the bathroom drain. Whoever thought that plan up should have been shot. I can assure you I have dumped bleach in the pans and it works. Blowing through the pipes is a real treat. Don't inhale. Don't forget to rinse the bleach out.
OH and you can tell if your unit is dirty because you will notice dirt on the registers where the air comes out. It is costly to you to operate a dirty a/c. Get tuff. . .
