    All that shopping wasn't even there a mere 5 years ago. QC Marketplace used to be Target and Froyo and the parking lot was always deserted. Now you almost have to fight for a spot.

    Progress.

    Is it a wooden barn? Because you'll have to light it on fire afterwards.

    Sorry,

    Have not been doing much riding. Even got some snow a few days ago. It looks like the warm up is staring and plan on dusting off the DR Saturday as it is supposed to hit 68.

    I am all still for the June plan and hope everyone else is game. Of course if anyone wants to come up before just let me know

    Lets see, I guess a lot depends on how many people are going to be able to make it. I have just over a acre of space and have electrical/water/sewer hookup for one trailer and room for other trailers without hookups.

    I have a bathroom/shower available and there is a million places to camp near by if needed.

    Also there is the Stanford General Store about 5 miles away and they have beer, food, live music, showers and laundry. Their website is https://www.facebook.com/SGSattheY/

    I am happy to supply burgers but anyone is more than welcome to bring whatever they would like.

    Anyone who is still planning on coming up please chime in and we can plan from there.

    Thanks for the great questions Bellstaff

    I've been following your travels and would sure like to ride with you sometime. I will be camping at Luna Lake, east of Alpine for a week in July or August.

    That works great for me. I will say the food at the general store is pretty damn good.

    Also has anyone rrridden to the XXX Ranch by Blue? I am curious how difficult it is and if it is worth it

    Here is a link

    Say if someone want to stay in a motel in Show Low, how far would that be to the staging area? ~ 12-15 mi?

    Hi,

    It's 20 miles from my place to Show Low. You may want to consider Pinetop/Lakeside as well. Use Vernon AZ to calculate miles just to give you a general idea
