No, I just flew past :) That storm that hit last week must have been crazy. I was at table mesa yesterday and it is absolutely trashed. River was flowing and everything. Then I saw the CK preride thread, holly crap...mama nature knows how to fix our trails good :)

Old Tag:



3346'51.68"N -11140'24.27"W

Dammit Verboten! I had to shimmy up that cliff in motocross boots to get the trinket. Easy going up. Tenuous coming down.

No more sand Tags for me for a while. I had to pick up the big bike twice out there.

New Tag:



If you raced motocross in the valley in the 70's, there was many a hot Saturday night you made a beeline to this track.

The trinket is in a hole in the brick, to the right of the door, where the purple paint is.

I thought that was for fireman to practice at. I could have grabbed that tag today on my way home.

Tagged, off of the bline, across from the stench.



New tag, don't loaf around and get out to the sweet trails here.

The trophy is tied to the tree down low by the saguaro.

Nice job Blue. Sorry about the climb. i had to do the same thing to get it there :)
I think I may have bruced a KLR... But they forgot the prize, so I Beelined it to the hills to drop it off again :)

Another hint perhaps...



Yardstick and I rode around the singletrack north of the current tag today. It must be getting cooler, because there were 6 or so other fools out there enjoying the trails. Anyhow, the tag is in the hills just above the riderless bike's bars. Get out there :)

Oh no hints needed...at least not for me. I've got it, but ain't had time to get out there this week. Been readying for a four-day outing next weekend. Much to do any much to buy to shake down the loadout for the new bike.

I'm feeling like I should move the tag myself at this point.
You really don't want me to do that

Enjoyed the Bline tower shot - raced there a few times in the 70's and watched some great AZ-Cali MX challenge races there too.. Saw a few up and coming moto heroes before they hit the big time. Thanks

Do any of you taggers have a job???

I've been trying to get this one for weeks! Just no time. I know where it is. Not far from my house. I live at the top of Usery Pass. Maybe tomorrow.

Someone wanna ride with me? My giant pig is a new experience to me and I'm not ready to get too deep into the woods on my own yet.

As luck would have it, Saturday is my only free day this weekend. Sunday is a mass birthday party. Somehow all my nephews get born on the same week in September.
