Those that want to do pavement only can just take Hwy 80 to Portal and meet us there. We can then find a good campsite low on the mountain close to Portal and set up camp. It'll still be cold, but we won't be camping in the snow. Those of us with knobbies or less common sense can then go up the mountain to play in the mud and snow for a while. If Onion Saddle is passable we can return that way in the morning, or alternately take Rucker Canyon to Leslie Canyon back to Douglas.
Any of the Sierra Vista folks interested in meeting in town and riding to Bisbee together? 0800 in Bisbee requires leaving here by what, 0730 or slightly earlier? Looks like we should have good weather for the ride and camping.
