This is a picture from a ride we took this spring the road went all the way through then. Talk of cowboy bars got me excited so I posted up an old picture.

OK. Here's another one to get the juices flowing...

This is from a couple years ago. Anyone know where this is?

August 13th ride

Tucson ADVers, thinking of doing Charouleau Gap tomorrow morning. Supposed to be overcast. Say meet at the staging area at 8 ride at 8:30. There is a ghost town back there I would like to find. If people want to bail after the first half they can take 77 back. Let me know if you are in.

Hey guys, I'm planning to take a noob out riding Sunday and trying to gear him up as to not maim him too badly. I had a helmet and some gloves that fit okay, but still need some kind of upper body protection and boots. I'm going to hunt around craigslist some more, but I thought I'd ask here as well. Shoot me a PM if you have any old gear laying around you'd be willing to part with fairly cheap. Looking for boots size 11-11.5 and size L mesh jacket/chest protector/pressure suit type thing. Thanks!

Where is the staging area? How many miles will the ride be?

Google these coordinates:

32.557319,-110.797143

At the bottom of the elevator take a left (west) and go down the wash.



I'd like to go, but I'm taking Vicky up in Redington for some trail riding.

Will the Spill and I did the Charouleau Gap tour today, The bastards completely ruined the front side. You could drive your Volkswagon up it now. However, the backside is worse than I have ever seen it. Looks like they got a lot of rain up there the past few weeks.

Will contemplating..."do I take the motorcycle or the Jeep?"



Does anyone recognize this location? They even took out the little step with the rock garden out front.



"Mr. 2-Smoke...meet Mr. Racing Four Stroke"



Will shot me basically walking my bike down this, then I got a series of him.





"A little dab will do ya"



Is that like K5 Chevy Blazer?



Three tadpoles fell out of his spokes when we got to dry land.



Rocket Man standing by his launchpad



Rocket Sled



This was a tricky little step up in the wash.



Found a couple mines.



Found a replacement rear end for my Toyota Tacoma. I dig the old spoke wheels man.



Someone forgot to tell the owner that we are in a down housing market...he wanted $197,500 for this "fixer upper".



He said he would throw in his motor home...although it will need new rubber and he said I will have to get a bonded title on it.



Will showed his skills today. He can motor up just about anything you can throw in front of him.
