I can do any late afternoon or evening from Wednesday on. Let me know we can do the loop to Cave Creek and grab a bite to eat if you want.

I will try to run and grab it mid week early evening if anyone wants to tag along let me know. Cheers

That's a little frustrating...

I just kept looking for rocks, as if any pile of rocks would do. That was a lot of pavement to say jtwest and I turned around not 5 miles from the tag. I bet he gets it today without me...

From the rock quarry to the top of the hill was pretty gnarly.

That little hill isn't so bad once you commit to it. Just keep your speed up and ride the outside edge... Less rocks.
Check out :28 to about 1:28 of the video in this link...

That's the hill.
Sucks to ride all that slab and not find the tag.

It seems that I do remember JT saying something about being "scared of heights" about 1/2 way up this li'l bump in the desert. He's the little spot near the bottom of this little rise!








Sorry JT... just had to joke with you a li'l... It was a rough-rocky SOB after all those rains. Likely much worse now. Can't wait for another run-at-it

Heights and such...

Stop pickin' on my brother... He just needs a to be a little more mountain goat and a little less rattlesnake. If you get my meaning... It looks like dirtklod might be able to help out with that. It's funny that you tell him he needs to ride a little closer to the edge!
