Ok! the wife meraculously accepted my request to ride my bike, for what will be my longest ride yet. This will also be my first opportunity to camp one night and encounter an old college buddy and friend who live in the same town on the way. I'm starting out in Southern AZ, my wife has a sister there and our 3 Children will visit for the weekend while I storm a path up from Southern AZ to home from Chandler, AZ. Bike is packed just need to load up in the truck and hit the road from Chandler to Rio Rico tonight. I will start the bike in the morning and hit the attached GPX route, piggy backing into the Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route (AZBDR) (Map #1) and the Great Western Trai: Keven Florance Loop (Map #2). Wish me luck, I'm just a N00b on here.
