    8:30???
    Gosh how fast are you planning on driving? I would guess it would take an hour from the shell station to the 60/77 intersection.

    I can be waiting at the Taco Bell parking lot, but I'd prefer meeting y'all further north as I plan on camping out Friday night somewhere along highway 60 in the Tonto forest.

    :poof: You can PM me if you need to keep the turnoff on the down-low :poof:

    Great!

    My Garmin knows where Haystack is and I'll be on it Saturday morning.

    I'll be monitoring for chatter on :pig: 146.460 :pig:

    haha Funner - looks like there is no backing out now! :p

    IN: (and camping as far as I can tell?)
    • MURF
    • LANDCRUISERPHIL
    • FUNNER
    • GWCRUISER
    • OTTER
    NOT SURE - (Hope you can make it!):
    • LONGDUCK
    • SCOTTYDOG
    And anyone else who might be interested. New members or just new to 4Wheeling; members & non-members more than welcome. Bring your family, friends, and pets if you want. This trip has only a short section of 2.5 miles of 4 wheeling that isnt bad, just slow going. Big lifts and lockers are not required to do it. Good time to get away to a real scenic section of AZ and relax before the heat hits.

    2.5 days till May ROTM :steer::bounce:

    Gold Canyon to Globe in fifteen minutes, I must be taking the wrong road. Or is that the super charger in the 80 that gets you there that quick?

    Since there is only a handful of us and no real rush, any interest in stopping in Globe for breakfast and slow-rolling the morning? There are a couple places that will even let scruffy LandCruiser owners come in ...

    My preference would be a later start time (coming from west valley Avondale) and stopping for fruhstuck is a definite +1 for me.

    new meet time!

    Well with a smaller group we certainly dont need to start as early. Lets move the meet time to 8:30 at the Gold canyon gas station. not alot but 30 minutes of beauty sleep can go along way for some people :hillbilly:

    Had a great time - for once I was on time and thought you folk had already been and gone. Glad you caught up to me.

    We were talking meteor storms: here's a link to the one I witnessed: http://leonid.arc.nasa.gov/1966.html These guys give a better description. Mike Jones from Shelton is closest to the Washougal latitude where I was - and is prbbaly the most similar explanation. Like driving through a snowstorm at night - but also had a hissing of noise all around you.
