I've only been in Arizona for a few weeks now, but I'm quickly accumulating a list of new riding buddies. One of my new BUDDYPALS, DirtyDog, put together a great Christmas Eve ride in Bulldog Canyon today. We met at a nearby Mc'Ds, and while only DirtyDog, ChopperCopper, and I went on the ride, a whole bunch of other Arizona FF's stopped by to see us off. I had a 40+ mile ride to Mc'Ds, so I was off before sun up. The full moon was doing a great job of lighting my way though. Sun was shining bright when we left at 8:30. The National Forest Service keeps this place under lock and key. We had a special pass though.
