Hi Teri,

Thanks for the report.  I like your involvement with Special Olympics.  I teach emotionally challenged kids to ride horses. 

Your description of growing up camping resonated with me.  We grew up that way and never stopped.  Now I am trying to figure out how to visit a resort, but it is not easy.

My pale skin hurts just looking at those pictures of the desert. Good call on wear big hats and lots of sunscreen.

Congrats on being Reviewer of the Month!

A parasol for sun and rain - I always tell people it is the most essential, nonessential piece of equipment, with only my boots, sunglasses, and hat getting more use.

Thanks for posting about the Arizona Trail. I visit my folks in Arizona on occasion and your description of the trail has given me something new to look forward to in the future.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I hope anyone who gets to Arizona can check out the many beautiful and diverse outdoor opportunities here. We have heat/desert and snow/pine trees within a few miles of each other, so there's a full spectrum of fun things to do. 

Special Olympics is available in almost all states, and runs almost completely with volunteers. I started as a volunteer at an event, and loved it so much I became a coach.  It's a very rewarding experience for sure!  

I really appreciate the information I've learned from Trailspace, and will be sure to add my review on the amazing cool products I received in the Reviewer of the Month prize package!!

Thank you again!!!  Teri
