    Idea! weekend globe shuttles

    Wanted to see if anyone is up for some shuttles up in globe? Really only interested in shuttling freight train or ice house with a possible sixshooter if done early in the day.

    Post up if you want to join.

    Nice I would be down for prescott if you get those racks and drive. Not taking my truck up that way until I make sure my new shift module holds up and it wasn't a deeper prob.

    I could have two old and slow people in for shuttling (I have a truck).

    post up some details if you head to Globe or Prescott.

    I'll defer to Jeff on this, but Mingus may be a bad idea given the soaking we've had in the last two days.

    We would like to check out the Icehouse trail at a pace that would rival the O.J. Simpson "slow-speed" chase. Not expecting anyone to ride with us just need shuttling to the top of the hill, and have a truck to shuttle others to the top of the hill.

    I might be down for the trip to Globe. What time are you guys thinking? I would probably split after noon. I might also have somebody that wants to go as well.

    We will likely be there most of the day, but because it is a about a 2 hour drive for us (N. Phoenix) it would be easier for us to start at 9 am.

    So if we get there at 9 pick up 2 or 3 riders and take them to the top and drop them off so they can take a run. Then we drive back to the bottom and leave our car there and wait for those people to come down and drive us to the top, or something like that?

    That would work great so everyone that gets up there with us can take a run down .After that your vehicle would stay down all day until you guys were ready to leave.

    How many bikes can you fit across the tailgate? is it a full size bed or stepside? I can get 6 easy on mine with a tight fit maybe 8-9

    It's a full sized truck with a rack that can hold 5 bikes upright so they don't bang into each other, or if you put them over the tailgate I'm guessing 8-10 bikes. Also I have a king cobra hitch rack that can hold 2 additional bikes.

    It's an access cab, so you can squish 3 or 4 people inside the back seat as long they are not too tall or covered in dirt
