    That is what I based my previous post off of. All the closures West of you do not have any effect on my routes. The only closer that affects it is the Alpine closure if you are doing the 3 Forks additional loop.

    Just talked to my buddy in Alpine who had just come out of a meeting with USFS on this. He says that the closure does not include campgrounds in his area. But no fires or charcoal. The road closure is for the "side roads" only. Main roads are still open. I guess you have to check with USFS concerning specific roads. FWIW

    Yeah, think I read that if Tucson doesnt get rain by the end of next week we will be in the top ten longest dry spells on record. End of February was our last recorded precipitation .

    Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend. I had some family come up and help me with the barn/shed and my sister gave me this old pic. How did I get so old???

    I'm still in Seattle in June. In July I get to take my first :big trip" on my GS by riding it down to Gold Canyon. In August I haul the last load of stuff down to AZ in my trailer, then return to help my oldest son move some stuff into a new apartment, and then turn around and head back down "for good" (I think -- one never knows....).

    Cool,

    The monsoons should be in effect then. If you need a hand in the move just let me know. I am happy to make the trip to the valley and help.

    take care

    Thanks for the offer! I'm usually just a glutton for punishment and unload a 20' trailer over two days. Not completely full however.

    AS I mentioned I am referring the old shed and this was a used as makeshift shelf. I think it's pretty cool but a shame the whole sign was not intact.

    I am definitely out. Have a bathroom remodel starting on the 11th which is supposed to stretch into the following week. Can't really leave the wife alone to deal with that stuff.

    Good luck on the bath remodel. I am one of those in my future.
