First Aid Fun

Let's learn some essential backcountry (and front country) first aid skills! We have already put in the time to learn this stuff and we want to share some knowledge so you have some skills in the event of an emergency. We will tape ankles, create an arm splint and sling that splinted arm! While this is a not a class for a certification, it will be taught by a certified Wilderness First Responder.

There is a $10 fee for this class to cover the materials - athletic tape, slings, bandages. etc. To save on transaction fees, we just ask you pay upon arrival at the event (cash or credit). This also means there is no cancellation fee, but do please let us know 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend. Please arrive 15 minutes early to pay and sign waivers - just in case we want a real life scenario and need to break an arm or two.

When: Wed, Feb 7th; 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Where: 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

How to Get a Grand Canyon Permit - and other logistical tips!

Learn all the tricks of the trade from people that have to go through the convoluted Grand Canyon permit system on a monthly (sometimes daily) basis. Since Just Roughin' It is a Grand Canyon guide service, we know and sympathize with the challenges of getting a permit. We will also discuss some other planning tips like logistics for a Rim to Rim, alternatives to the main trails, off-season tips, what to expect when on your trip (like the flesh-eating Grand Canyon Rock Squirrels) and more!

This is a free event.

When: Wed, Feb 21st; 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Where: 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

McDowell Sonoran Preserve 1/2 Day Hike

Join us for a half day hike at the Gateway Trailhead at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Yes, you can totally hike for free - by yourself, but for a $30/person fee, you get to hike with a professional guide that knows the area, has extensive wilderness training, and will make sure everyone on the trip has someone to hike with. So no meeting up with a group of strangers to have them all take off on you! Plus, what a great way to get together with like-minded hikers.

A portion of our fee goes to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

We do require payment in advance. Please visit us at our Scottsdale location or give us a call at 480-857-2477 and we can get you set up over the phone.

When: Sat, Feb 24th; 8:00am - 12:00pm
Where: 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

Learn to be like Bigfoot, leave no trace!

You will learn the 7 principles of Leave No Trace all in one packed hour of fun! This class will be taught by a LNT Master Educator. Class highlights are, but not limited to, respecting wildlife like bunnilopes and sasquatches, how to be considerate of others in the backcountry, how to dispose of trash and waste properly, and maybe a bit about how not to get lost - your corpse left in the backcountry would be leaving a trace. This class is free but we do ask you to RSVP no less than 24 hours in advance.

When: Wed, Feb 28th; 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Where: 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

How to Prepare for a Rim to Rim in a Day Hike

Rim to Rim season is approaching and many of you may be contemplating your first, or tenth Rim to Rim day hike. Let the experts - that would be us because we hike Grand Canyon so many times that we have run out if toes and fingers count. Let us give you some tips about getting prepared, what to bring for food and drink, proper footwear and clothing, what to expect (climate, trail, other people, etc.) and how to hopefully make it through in one piece.

This is a free event but we do ask you to RSVP in advance if possible. Or just show up - we aren't going anywhere.

When: Wed, Mar 7th; 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Where: 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

Our Scottsdale store is located at 8658 E Shea Blvd., Ste 175! We just opened (Grand Opening is November 11 & 12, 2017) so we are still working out some kinks but we have a lot of great gear for the outdoors and indoors. Fashionable outdoor clothing and footwear so you can go on a hike, climb a rock or two and then grab a cocktail (or beer) - we are more of the cocktail types but you can't go wrong with a great local brew!  We are local owned and operated (this means we are not a franchise either) by a AZ native. We know, AZ natives are hard to find. Established in 2006 as a guide service in Grand Canyon, Havasupai and Yosemite, we know what the deal is with the best gear for the outdoors - whether out for the day or in the middle of nowhere for a week.  So come on in a say hey!  And since you are coming by, if you don't mind bringing us a cocktail (or beer), that would be super cool as well.
