We had a few stream crossings ahead of us. They were all bad.

We stopped for some repairs.

DirtyDog



The mud would cake into our tires and make climbing out of the creek on the slippery rounded river rocks very difficult.



JD was have some footpeg issues. Overhead view.



The way we came.



Yours truely chilling out.

The AZ Crew does it again, beautiful scenery, killer trails and dudes (sometimes dudettes) that can ride those trails. Just Great Stuff!!

Sorry this is your farewell ride Dirty Dog. I wanted to make it out for a ride before you left. Happy Trails Brother.

Terry- you forgot to mention several highlights...

Finding a welder in crown king.

Pushing bikes through the mud.

Riding through the lightning storm.

Etc.

Today, the "easy" day, still had some challenges. Went up mingus mountain and had a nice rocky descent. Redeye took us on a nice local trail n of Payson. Made the day not so easy.
We're having a blast and making repairs along the way.

Cyberdos joins is in the am for a trail of ill repute. It will be a long, glorious day.

Hey stop giving away the plot! We haven't gotten there yet. Although, the daddy of all muddy rocky creek crossings is coming up next...

Just when our confidence was maxing out from a bunch of favorable creek crossings, we got stepped down a couple of notches...

JD and Matt were already stuck on the other side when I arrived on the scene and promptly stuck my 950 in the muck. Next up is Mike.



And last Glenn



The depth of the water caused my bike to sputter out right at this spot. I was nervous about whether it would restart or not, but after a little break and clearing out the other bikes, it fired right up!

One by one we pushed forward, inch by inch.





And the Blair Witch video. It's worth it though.
