    I'm hoping the roots take on this one it calloused nicely. I followed the directions I had but I've never done cacti from cuttings so here's hoping.

    It's real easy. If there are any big cacti nearby, consider looking into grafting, since it is a way of cheating the slow growth.

    Have you been to the saguaro national park is it worth the trip and what kind of boots do u recommend to keep cacti from going thru the sole of them?
    I ended up stepping on cacti by accident at Big Bend n it went straight thru my cheapo hikers.

    Best way is to not step on the spines. :D I usually wear work boots so the solid 1/2 - 5/8 inch sole usually does the trick. Cheaper shoes have hollow soles. So maybe that's your problem. (But they have to be really broken in before any real walking is done in them.)
    Work boots are not really hikers so they are heavier and less flexible. So two pairs of socks is recommended. So yeah thick and heavy soles. Stay away from el cheapos.

    Saguaro national is really not worth the trip if that is all you are doing in Tucson. I mean after two hours and you're done. It's little more than a couple of big hills with some cactus on it. Though a lot of them.

    Saguaro's drop their spines if the cactus gets damaged or gets really old. The experts say it takes 80 years for a Saguaro to grow a arm. And the spines have round cross sections, so it's like trying to pierce your boot sole by stepping on a round toothpick that is lying on its side. All the other stuff is pretty fragile, though barrel cactus, yeah those definitely look out for. Those spines are like bakerlite. :D. Those will definitely got through the sole of your boot.

    Had to dig a bunch of these things out the previous owner planted by the pool. :picard: Don't ask. I don't know why anyone would want to plant 16-20 inch balls of 3 inch spikey death, each weighing in excess of 200 lbs when fully hydrated, right next to a place where you are going to be mostly nekkid. Tried to push one over with my foot after digging out the roots, and the spines impaled my foot, and stuck it to the fucking cactus. I had to pry my foot loose with the shovel and try not to back flip/flop into the pool at the same time. Good times. :|

    You'll see teddybear cactus. NO HELL NO. NO STAY THE FUCK AWAY. THESE ARE MAGNETICALLY ATTRACTED TO HUMAN FLESH.

    Goat head spurs.

    Largest are about an inch across. Evil sons of bitches. Thick soled shoes are good protection but if you are walking through and feel these accumulate on the soles of your shoes, just know you can't really sit and rest anywhere without really being careful. Yes they are as painful as they look, and they kill bike tires.

    Spines are from 1/2 to 4 inches long. Yeah. As they say at the taco truck, "No fucking bueno."

    Teddy bear is a deceptive name for a bastard, I pulled a bunch out of my jeans on Thursday.

    Barrels look neat but yeah not near a pool. Prolly nice in containers.

    We have the goat head Spurs here and I made the mistake of wearing my sneakers into my bedroom with a couple stuck on my shoe, fuckers hurt barefoot.

    Our mesquite thorns are a lil smaller than AZ.

    I will try to get the rest of my stuff from big bend converted over Tonite, and I went to Hueco Tanks yesterday, less cacti there but more climbing n Indian wall pantings.

    Ok no saguaro park. Thicker boots ty.

    I think it's great that for the first 2 minutes, nobody did anything. Just watched the guy screaming in agony until he told them what to do.

    He's butch like that.
    Yes. It snows in the Coronado every year. There is a ski resort there. 1/2 day lift tickets are 40 bucks. But, I'm going to buy some used equipment. You pay that much in rental. :|
    Flagstaff and Utah are known for snow. Really good ski resorts in Flagstaff. And Utah well besides skiing what else is there to do?

    It can be classified as a universal constant at this point.

    Depends. Most violence is constrained within a 6 block area in the Southside. Though gun violence and crime generally have been on a decline for a while now.

    It's been awhile but from what I remember, westside was rough and anything south of Division you should watch your shit.

    I personally never had a problem though. Chicago violence is overrated.

    Westside is better than it used to be. But Garfield Park/lower Humboldt Park is still kind of rough.

    Past 47th is where you need to watch yourself. Don't make eye contact, keep your valuables out of sight, don't go outside at night, watch what colors you wear, etc. I don't go anywhere near there, especially Englewood.

    Chicago is not as dangerous as it seems, but it'll never stop being sensationalized in the media and a conservative talking point against gun regulation.

    People assume violence is all random. Not that it doesn't happen, but usually mother-fuckers are getting shot for some convoluted reason that would boggle a logical mind.
