    What are you riding? I live over in Dove Mountain and will most likley be going out around the Tortolitas somewhere(state land gate is only 1 1/2 mi. from garage). Saturday is out for me but Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday are good, weather depending(rain).

    Here is a link to some photos taken on the Bull Springs road (Amado-Patagonia) on 12/28/12.

    The Bull Springs route is quite fun and not very difficult. Thanks to a fellow ADVrider Kevin on his KTM for finding my license plate. I lost my rear plate and bracket after our last stop at the ruins before heading into Patagonia.

    Arrived in Tucson yesterday and will be staying out at Desert Trails RV Resort on San Joaquin Rd for the next few months. Had a hectic 8 day drive dodging storms along the way and need a few days to recover, but managed to get the new DR650 off the truck and had a quick ride. Everything looks good to go.

    Hopefully the RG will be on this Thursday (1st & 3rd?) and I'll get a chance to renew aquaintances.

    We stopped to take some picture and explore a little along the way so we spent about 3.5 hours on the route from Amado to Patagonia. I am sure you could cut an hour off of that if you kept moving.

    The sheriff was up there talking to the shooters yesterday. Guessing he was asking them to go pick up all the orange plastic.

    Neither, we were relegated to the kids table near the "A-Team" (anarchist) group. They gave us the coordinates to hell I think:deal

    There may have been a plan but I left early.

    Try dualsportmaps.com for tracks in the area - there are many in the Tucson area.
