Weekend of Jan 25. Someone else has the route but it is in the low 30 miles with significant X-country.

I had to pull out due to the wife having surgery but my 11 year old son is on the trip now. They left last night. 3 adults, 5 boys and 1 girl. They plan to cover 6-8 miles last night in the dark, 15-18 miles today, and ~8 miles tomorrow. I provided my son a camera but we will see if he actually uses it. Water is always a concern in the desert on 3 day trip. Rattlers a little less concern. I wish I could have gone.

What kind of trip? Kind of a confusing post.

The trip is a backpack traverse of ABSP (Trans Anza). They should finish today (Sunday) in the late afternoon. The car shuttle was established at the start of the trip (1.5 hrs to setup) so the drive back to one car is on the way back home.

Maybe I should have titled it "Trans Anza - A backpack traverse of ABSP".

Can you provide any details? I have a few loose ideas already about a traverse of the park of my own.

Yes please give a route. ABDSP is huge so you know why I am asking. Water will be the number 1 concern of course.
Please post pics of their adventure and best wishes to your wife.

The TH was on the Overland Stage Route in Earthquake Valley (Topo quadrant 12). They started on the Pinyon Mtn Valley trail and camped at trail end. Went through Pinyon Canyon connecting with the jeep trail near the Split Rock Petroglyphs. Followed it through Hapaha Flat and Fish Creek Wash. They camped near the confluence of North Fork Fish Creek Wash. They continued down Fish creek wash through Split Mountain to the boundary of ABSP. Mileage is estimated at low 30s. They did not see any rattlers but they did kick loose a large boulder that bounced over one of the children. They also had a few run-ins with cholla. My child indicated he did not need to use the chop sticks much (but did need them a little) and never needed the tweezers.

He had no issues with water but accidentally lost a 1 gallon empty that he had tied (obviously not very well) to the outside of his pack.

He took a few photos - maybe 15 which was actually more than I had expected. Seems I missed a great trip but there was no way I was able to go.
