    You know you've been living in the desert too long when its 75 and you are wearing long sleeves and/or jacket! (I kid I kid) Man those trails looks gnarly, I might have to bring a bike the next time I visit.

    We Have the same terrain here in Southern Utah and I would take a rock hit any day over cactus.

    Cactus - by far!

    I once spent a half hour pulling spines out of someone's back after the looped out on the airport mesa trail climb in Sedona and went back wards into a giant prickly pear.

    And, they're not all soft and cuddly like they look in cartoons: most of them are scrawny desert plants that are only slightly more forgiving than re-bar.

    Don't even ride near a cholla - those things pretty much just jump out at you!

    I can attest to the goodness AZ has to offer! We just rode with tiSSer and gang during our trip last weekend. Did the 'go-to' ride at SoMo: National/Holbert/Kiwanis/National. Highly recommend getting out there, soon! Great group of guys. More motivation:

    Bring your legs, lungs, balls and UST tires. Good times

    BTW - those Chili's look mighty fine in person. Surprised by how light the shock setups were as well.

    South Mountain is always fun! Rode there quite a few times on my Titus before becoming Knollified. I'll be riding in Tucson 11/18 - 11/23 and Sedona 11/25 - 11/26 if anyone is interested in riding (PM me). Won't have my Chili as I can't afford to ship it back and forth from NJ so I'll be renting.

    I would also be totally down for this. Dec 7th is my birthday. Not sure if that is a good thing or bad regarding dates. Not like I am used to actually doing anything on my b-day (years and years of finals on my birthday). Either of those dates would work for me, just need a bit of advanced notice.

    The rain and cold and darkness has finally settled in up here in the PNW. In another month or two I will be deep in Seasonal Affective Disorder. So this would be a great break! Lets make it happen!

    Thanks!

    BTW, how does one amass a rep power of 30, and all those green dots? Are you over on the 'DIY lights' board complimenting the hell out of everyone? Typing the words 'rep power' makes me think of Dungeons & Dragons. Haha.

    Alright, I suggest we stage at my house. Everyone can leave their bikes there, those camping can shower at my place, and we can head out from my house. I think one night we will go to Pinos for dinner, the others we can BBQ at my place or go out, whatever works. I can have a few people (3-4 depending on wife approval - some will need to sleep on air matresses or spoon with others ). I can carry 3 bikes/people, so we will need to work out transportation.

    Who plans on staying at my place? Who would be flying in?

    Initial route plans are as follows:

    National/Holbert/Kiwanis/National
    Kiwanis/National/Geronimo/Coshise
    Goat Camp

    This will cover much of stuff you guys will want to hit.

    Accommodations: (these are all within a few miles of my house - many others as well)

    Rad. I am ready to pull the trigger on my flights. Would dig to crash at your spot if possible...but super easy and willing to stay wherever / hotel etc..

    I will be flying in and arrive around 7pm on Thursday and departing around 7:30pm Sunday.Will probably ship my bike direct to your house.

    Questions:

    How far from the airport is your place?
    Do we need to rent a car / catch a cab to your spot?
    Is it worth coordinating our travel as best we can - so we can get to / from the airport and your house?

    Rad - this is coming together pretty quickly.

    Regaring routes...I am happy to follow you wherever you take us bru! Stoked.
