yes plenty I can even guide one day but not this week

I can PM you some contact info. I go back to work on Jan 7th so I am open to most any day if you might be free, just let me know.

I currently have BFG long trail tires with about 60% tread life left. Will these be sufficient?

RAN this today - Was much fun with some new folks. KA7TLT was my HAM buddy on this Run. He had a Muey cool FJ80, that was WELL appointed with Winch, snorkle, and HAM. Nice time Gerry, and all.

The trail is a little more washed out than it was in 2011. you could get some good articulation in some spots. But since Cruiser_ss396 did the entire thing without any screams, I think we'll leave it as a 1.5 for now. (It's getting better though)

UPDATE - JUNE 2015
We did a night run here on 6/11/15. The road was much more washed away than it had been. There were some careful tire placement sections and the upper switch back was much rockier than it used to be.

THUS, bumping up the rating again.

Some sections required 4Lo.

However, the Eastern downslope was very well manicured.

Just came across this:
tucson.com/news/scienc...85c8e.html

A good read.



Seems the opposition hasn't gotten anywhere in a year.
