Not touched since I left it. Only signs of life in that wash are some Cow hoof prints Just not passable by Man nor Beast/or me

Also, I am off work tomorrow and can help if needed.
Very tempted to take that bet

"Ride it out"

I'll bet $20 after the first three lift overs, it will be ridden out.
will take 3-4 to lift over rocks.
The road down to the wash where Tom's bike is ,is only accessible with a short wheelbase 4X4 or motorcycles, ATV, etc.
Not to mention the opportunity to aquire some Az. pin stripes.

I see the line!!! anyone else spot the line??? Nice try Tom
So Tom you never said where that trail was supposed to take you to. Was there actually a trail on the GPS or were you bush wacking and hoping it went somewhere?

Took a wrong turn. Not the first time nor will it be the last. Heading from Bagdad to Burrow Creek. Southwest. No getting through in that wash without ropes.

The area is so confusing when it comes to navigation with or without GPS, my assumption is that Tom could have turned where GPS shows a trail.
google maps shows a road but it look so bad when examine it up close. It's only a small rough section to connect back to the regular trail we did last year. I avoided it last year by rerouting when GPS do not indicate any reading, I used GPD on my GPS to get us out of there. Back then the GPD was NEN direction to get to Bagdad.

Eddy, I would not appreciate somebody posting the location of my stranded motorcycle

Think you can get that down, at least until we have a chance to go get it?

At least it is here. That link will be more likely to get you more volunteers showing up than nefarious folks.

You're right, though. I doubt the owner will be able to relax until the bike is safely home.

Good luck out there guys.
