    It's time again to plan to attend the 2013 DualSportDesertDaze in sunny Arizona.

    March 14-17

    Escape the dreary cold of winter and come out for some AWESOME desert riding.

    For more info check out the website:
    www.dualsportdesertdaze.com

    This year's event is once again hosted at the fabulous Triangle T Guest Ranch located in the Dragoon Mountains of Southern Arizona.

    Lodging is a little different this year and is based on TWO persons per site for camping or RV space. Each additional camper is $8 a day to cover breakfast.
    If you're NOT a group of two, BUDDY UP and save some dough!

    Camping for two = $25/night +tax
    RV Electric Only for two = $30/night +tax
    RV Full Hook-up for two = $35/night +tax
    Additional campers are $8 for breakfast

    ALL cabin rooms include breakfast for the # indicated.
    1 bedroom casita (for 2) = $115.00/night
    2 bedroom casita (for 4) = $175.00/night
    4 bedroom bunkhouse (for 8) = $375.00/night
    additional persons $20/night

    NEW THIS YEAR!! The Triangle T is giving each registered attendee $5 in Ranch Bucks for use at the Saloon.

    Please contact the Triangle T (520-586-7533) directly to make your lodging reservations.

    Once again, there's no fee to attend but it helps us if you let us know you're coming by registering online HERE.

    Looking forward to seeing folks there!

    It's a great event for those that can make it:freaky

    Kinda funny to reminisce over the past few years, from humble beginnings with my homemade "deer rack" as I affectingly call it(no idea how it even lasted half the event:huh), then borrowing el yota, then finally having my own tow vehicle:D

    There's a lodging link on the website (www.dualsportdesertdaze.com) that lists the 'local' hotels (I've cut and pasted them below). Benson is slightly closer than Willcox and riding in each day is feasible but, you do miss out on the yummy breakfast and camaraderie.

    It's only 15 miles down I-10 to Benson from Triangle-T, so 10-15 minutes. Closest fuel too, that I know of.

    So wait, I'm confused... It would be just me and my travel trailer...
    Does that mean I have to pay $70 a night?... or are you saying that if you buddy up, you split the $35?

    It's $35/night for two not each. So for $35 2 people can stay and both get breakfast. If it's just you, then eat twice! :lol3
    Or... stop in Benson and pick up 3 gals to keep your trailer warm and cozy and the total would be $47 for the 2 extra breakfasts and make them wimin each pay their own way,
    then it's only about $12/night for you! :sweeti:babe:gdog:sweeti

    :clap
