    I have a rare afternoon off next Tuesday. Thinking about doing a ride - staging at Wildcat and riding to Sheeps Bridge and Horseshoe Dam. I have never been to either so I'm hoping that is doable in an afternoon. If anyone is interested or available let me know.

    If you move along I think people have been able to do that loop in under 2 hours. I have only done it once and it seemed to be pretty quick.

    I did on accident and thought I moved it shortly after - did I not fix it like I thought?

    AWESOME. I am glad to hear it and glad to know you have done it before. Since I haven't and not exactly sure where I'm going. Don't you have a new GPS?:evil That definately makes me more comfortable. Looking forward to it. I will PM you my cell - you may still have it but just in case.

    i do have a new gps. that doesn't mean that i know how to USE it! i'll try to download the tracks, but i'm sure i can remember the route. it's pretty simple.

    the water won't be flowing like this, but this is the route.

    LOL, I had a GPS and lost in the Tom Car incident - but I was still trying to figure it out. So no worries. I figured this loop was pretty easy to follow - one of the reasons I want to do it.

    You should be fine ... good route that should not be muddy now...lol

    Seebee1 can lead the way... No GPS required but this would be a good one to start practising using it though.

    Good deal. Not sure on the exact time we will be heading out from Wildcat and probably won't know until that day - some time afternoon. I will let you know as we get closer. Looking forward to seeing you again.

    This is one of my favorite little loops,and since no one in the State of Arizona is interested in the WR's I think I need to go and ride them. :evil Tired of just looking at them in the Garage.

    I would plan on 3 hours from wildcat, depending on the group.

    I am going to add a "Doctors" appt on my calendar for next tuesday afternoon and try to join you. Its a perfect afternoon ride.

    good to have you on board, todd. it's been a while.

    just give a little time for the bikes to sell. riding season is just about to start in most of the country.
