Going back to Tarzan


The Husband and I plan to hike back to Tarzan Falls this weekend, but this time we will join the boonie stomping group that ventures out to a different site every Saturday morning. The boonie stomps are led by Dave Lotz, the author of several hiking on Guam guides. Neither of us has been on one of his guided hikes, but we own a couple of his books. It’ll be cool to meet the man whose books have guided us on many of our adventures in the jungle and caves of Guam.
We want to go with the group this Saturday because they’re offering a choice between two hikes: one to Tarzan Falls, and another going from Tarzan Falls to lower Sigua Falls. I’ve never been to Sigua. The hike from Tarzan to Sigua is long (it says to allow 8 hours!) and is rated very difficult, so we’ll kinda just see how we feel once we get to Tarzan to decide whether we will continue on with the group or call it a day.

Have you been on one of Dave Lotz’s boonie stomps? How did you like it?

    if thats the same group as the Dept. of Parks and Rec. then yea its a good group…i saw alot of guam that i didn’t know exsisted, even though i was born and raised there. another great, fun, and freespirited group is Agana Hash House Harriers http://www.hashguam.com
    “Drinkers with a running problem!” its a good and fun way to keep up with running, although you can walk if u wish. AND the best part are the trails, you never know where its ends!

    Thanks Thomas!
    John it is the Parks & Rec one. Nice to know they’re a good group. I also have a few friends who have tried to get me to go on a hash, but first I need to develop a drinking, I mean RUNNING, problem. haha

    My sister and mine’s first boonie stomp was at Sigua Falls, and our friend whom took us there, laughed in our faces when we told him that. We made it though. Hope the weather stays fine when you do go. :]
    P.S. Beautiful shot.

    Yes yes Donovan and I have done hikes with his book. We went to “double reef beach” and there was enough detail to navigate the lush limestone forest and find the secluded treasure of a shoreline. If we were on Guam, we might just tag-along with you guys on your adventures! We have done Sigua but years ago and it doesn’t seem to be the difficult one that you’ll be embarking on soon. It took about 3 hours to get there and I remember jumping off the cliff at the falls into the water. In fact, I still have that picture somewhere and I can’t believe I did it because I can’t even swim that well.
