    I planned a ride for next Sunday March 9th, We'll meet 8:30am at Wild Horse cafee, engine start at 9am, here to be exact: https://goo.gl/maps/pnqoF
    Suggest route: Lake Pleasant to Yarnell via Wagoner Rd/FR362 Rd, the way back to Buckhorn wash, via Mina Rd to Constellation and back to Lake Pleasant.
    It's mixt terrains ride include rocks, sand, uphills, downhills & possibly some splashes from water crossing (I hope:d)
    There's is exit points if someone decided to bail out for whatever reason. There's a gas station in Peeples Valley, a pit stop for snack/gas.
    It's rocky on the way up, Sandy on the way back. Suggested cc displacement for these terrains is 250 to 650cc.
    Forecast called for fair weather for Sunday.
    PS: There's couple or maybe 3 uphill to tackle something that look like this:

    If I remember right, it ripped his center stand off a little further down as well.

    I might have been up for this one but there is way to much road riding in this loop for my taste. We were just through the section in the pics last Sunday and its not bad at all. I think the jeeps have softened the ruts.
