Well now I am out. I have a prior back injury that I did something to aggravate. I can hardly walk and it looks like a trip to the Dr. is in my near future. Sad

We will miss you, but rest that back! 😬

Dear fellow AZFJ folk who have access to a large pickup truck in the Tucson area,

I need help picking up a pallet (84 cases) of bottled water from Safeway on Tanque Verde by Mt Lemmon Hwy on Friday evening and delivered up to the Redington Pass Kiosk area around 7AM on Saturday morning.

Given the height of the pallet, the store recommends breaking open the outer plastic wrap around to pallet and evenly stacking the cases in the bed for safer weight distribution. We will likely have more than we need so we can store the extra water in Tucson on Friday evening.

I have an extra gift card for the person who can help with this task.

REDINGTON PASS CLEANUP 2015 - UPDATE



On Saturday, Dec 12th we held a cleanup sponsored by Friends of Redington Pass and Tread Lightly! We had a great turnout of 50 volunteers despite the poor weather conditions. Our volunteers represented various recreational groups including AZFJ, BSA, FRP, SAHC, and TRS plus our key agency partners from USFS - Santa Catalina Ranger District, and the AZ Game & Fish Dept.

Kirk Emerson(FRP) kicked off the event and Mindi Lehew(USFS) led the safety briefing and Ken Hester(FRP, TL!, & AZFJ) explained the cleanup plan and divided the volunteers into groups and assigned them cleanup areas to cover.



The AZGFD team supplied a dumpster on wheels and we helped them replace their vandalized Information Kiosk sign. Ty Wildman and his team from Barnett Towing did a great job removing a burned out minivan from an OHV trail and they will return when the weather is better to remove the remaining 2 wrecks in the Pass.



As we were finishing up, a hail & freezing rain storm had us all scrambling for cover. We had a quick raffle and departed knowing we made Redington Pass nicer for all users despite the uncooperative weather. A BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers, sponsors and donors, and agency partners who helped out!

It was a mud fest. Thanks Ken. We appreciate all the hard work you put in.
(And the fun off roading adventure).
PS, we'll have to go to 4436 next time.

Yes, I may do 4436 during the Holidays. My son in law will be here and I know he wants to go wheeling with me.

Let me know if you want to come... hope you are feeling better.
