I think it's an IT 490 kind of day.

I plan to join in on my KTM 300. I'm out in Lake Pleasant, if anyone wants to carpool? We could maybe meet along the way.

Alas, not street legal. After reading the roster, looks like a KTM kind of day

Anyone scared to do the in & out? With this small of a group & the talent level that's what i'm thinking we should do to burn off Thanksgiving Day groceries...I can e-mail the basic route to anyone that needs it. PM me your e-mail address & I'll send it to you. I say basic because there will probably be side trips
wherever you guys are going I'm following. Best thing to do is play it by ear.

I'm coming with my buddy "Jumper Dave". He'll be riding my DRZ.

I too have a last minute entrant. He is not active on this forum but a Husky rider with an itch .

Not sure about the route (in that I'm game for anything do'able) so I'll probably hew towards my guest's comfort level unless he is (like really) bigtime slow AND finds a comrade-in-crawl to track with him. If the group gets big enough we may want to consider pairing off with the fast riders out front and groups of two-to-three staging each leg with a timed-release mode of travel to keep us spread out and the dust eating minimized.

BTW here is the the route we did last week in Google Maps (ignore the start and end points as I staged at a different locations from the others)

Got new rubber this week so I'm ready for some fun!

I'm planning to go counter clockwise to the Ovens/River then turn around & go back the same basic way we came in. Possibly stopping at martinez cabin on the way back..

I like the out-and=back plan.

Here is an alternate route for the return trip north from Martinez Canyon:

http://goo.gl/maps/0KMiO

Of particular interest (to me) is a road not available to map on google but clearly there. If you look at the satellite zoomed in you can see a road tracing north/northwest from point B to point C. Looks to be a firly tame two-track from the images running a ride and drooping twice or so into canyons (couple of very short wash runs).

That trip back north from Martinez canyon (point C) would run east of the southbound Mineral Mountain Rd/Box Canyon Rd route we did last week on the way in.

Another interesting option is that at point C one could continue to travel up Box Canyon rd (which you've just re-joined) to its terminus (according to the map and (presumably?) rip the wash up to the pint where Yardstick had us on his alternate route last week. Not my thing but the single trackers might dig.
