A couple rides "Out My Backdoor", nothing exciting.... However there have been very little activity here for several days... and the weather is good. Took a li'l 65 mile trip towards Congress. Looking for another way into town other than the Stanton/Octave road. Several years ago you could jump on the highway near the old hotel. However someone has locked the gate there. So I ventured South for a way's to another gate I have used before... Locked also. So ended up just cruising around between the Hassamapa River and Stanton. There are way tooo many Crazzzy Gold Miners in that area. One had a BIG Damn dog that chassed me down the trail, luckly I was just a bit faster. It was one of those "Don't-Fail-Me-Now" moments! Today, toward Aguila via dirt just outside of Wickenburg, Tow Limits. Flat cattle country, couple of railroad crossings, some mud holes. Just the usual for that area. Spent time searching for another way from Hwy 71 to Wickenburg. There are several old jeep roads between water tanks that will often connect. Here again I found locked gates near Forpaugh... I did find a new route to 71 but not the one I had intended, this came out further North than I had expected. Another 60+ mile ride, in awesome AZ weather! A few pix of todays ride, did not take any on Saturday. Perhaps someone can tell me where I was from this marker? Damn you Hostess... now I have to eat the Safeway brand pies!
