Ok specifically: Any good dirt roads, nothing crazy to connect Green Valley with Patagonia? Or are we stuck to the highway?
Box Canyon Road will at least take you through the Santa Rita's.

I've never been there but google maps says that there's something more south that goes through that pops out closer to patagonia. Once on the Sonoita side, there are various dirt roads that can take you more south so you can skip some of 83 if you decide to take box canyon. Box canyon is nice and smooth dirt.

A lot of automotive stores sell slime. I know places like ridenow and csa has it. I also have some slime that you could use (I'm near Sahurita and Houghton)

raven knows her stuff.

however

putting any kind of goo in your tires/tubes could get pretty damn messy when it comes time to fix or replace your tires/tubes.

If I have my Friday off, that might be a good ride.

Currently looking for something to do Friday and was going to talk to people at the Garter Thursday.

I was waiting for more of an 'announcement'.
Congrats, now I can buy you guys a beer. Except Cathy, I understand she needs something to help settle her stomach, I guess it's Sprite for her.

You should be fine. I rode it yesterday... it's a bit rutted out from the rain, and has some water crossings (some standing, some flowing), but nothing major.

Bull Springs

If it's the Bull Springs I'm thinking of, you go from Amado and take the Salero Rd, and it takes you to the southern edge of the Nature Conservancy south of Patagonia. It's been years since I've been through there in a Jeep; it's got some steep, rocky sections. Actually, I took a two-wheel drive Mazda pickup through there: I had to put rocks in the back for traction to get up certain sections.
