    Hawes Tue - Nov 11 - 9 AM

    Will start from a pullout off Hwy 60 (Bush Hwy) near mile marker 24, 9:00 AM. This is on the northeast end of the trail system. It is the trailhead for Twisted Sister and Wild Horse.

    Route is as follows:
    Twisted Sister - Mine - Ridge (ccw) - Pig - Hawes - Saddleback - Big Saguaro (west) - Pig (cw) - Story (out & back) - Big Saguaro (east) - Twisted Sister - Beer!

    This should be about 18 miles of ear to ear grins. Well mostly ear to ear grins, there are a few climbs to contend with, but grinning still helps on the climbs cause smilin releases endorphins which make you happy which makes you grin.

    Anyone wanting less could bail out at several points along the ride. Anyone wanting more, lets talk. I'd be into doing a loop at Usery after Hawes if anyone else was.

    If not sure about the starting location, look for my car, a 1987 blue Chevrolet Nova at the pullout. I'll get there a little early.

    Not quite sure how to respond. Ya gotta go up to go down, and there is no hurry so we can certainly take our time.

    Wish I could join you, so put me down as iffy. That 18 miles is a little much for me, but would just cut some of it off, if need be. Gotta still work :P
