Exploration ride in AZ

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...5#post22226785

Should be a great ride. Bring your nightstalker ropes! I'm thinking October sometime.

ride is coming together nicely. reidy008 is going to make gps tracks available sometime before the ride that he can email to you if you like.

the staging area is just a mile or so up cherry creek road on the right hand side, and i'm planning on ksu at 0830. we may adjust this a bit if necessary.

Whenever you hear the phrase "bring your nightstalker ropes" you must realize that it's not just a spin up to young. It's an unknown route that I don't think anybody's done in over a decade at least. There may be mechanical and bodily harm done on this ride. It looked like a super rough and steep trail that may not even be passable.

In which case, we'll have lunch at antlers!

I'm pretty open, so why don't you and drew call it? You're the two who seem to have that four letter word problem!

For you hard core gotta ride there kinda guys, you could take four peaks to a cross to cherry creek road, where ill be at the staging area. Could probably bring a gas can to top you off, too.

Dates

Don't want to influence the ride plan, but since you haven't picked a date yet...

I've got the 13th and 20th open, both sundays. Don't think I can do an overnighter either weekend. Besides if we explore I wouldn't want the camping gear on the bike. (Wait til you see that hill!)

If either of those dates are chosen, I'm most likely in.

I was thinking the same thing about the camping gear. Hell, I don't know if we can even hike this thing, much less ride it. I sure don't want all that stuff strapped on to the bike while trying it. Plus, I may just need some things that camping doesn't provide after this ride!

Those dates work for me. How bout you, brad?
