You guys are killing me! What a bunch of goofballs! I need to figure out how to make this happen. I think I'll ride the 990 adv just to add to the entertainment value. Or maybe not.

I know a great route there that should add to the misery factor if you are interested. Just keep going north in Box Canyon until you get to a really narrow spot between two walls just south of where a road from the NW ends at a cattle tank. Not too long after that the wash ends at a 30' waterfall so you can't ride all the way to the road which was my plan that day. I turned around to try another route. Just S. of the narrow spot take another drainage that heads east and follow that through boulders etc until you can escape on a road on the N. side of the canyon back to the Ajax Mine Rd. There was some evidence that it had been done before but it was an adventure.

The fork to turn to the east is at 33deg, 11' 36.33"N 111deg 10' 53.21"W If I could figure out how to post a Google Earth kmz file I'd do that.
