Why would you be meeting out on Rio Verde Rd instead of the Beeline? I was under the impression FR160 was basically Sycamore Creek up to Sugarloaf? Are you planing on crossing the Verde near Rio Verde? BTW, I'm in.

Yup, that's the plan. We did it the same way just a year ago. River looks to be lower than last year. Just drove over it twice today. Just got back from the Log Corral run. Western end of this trail gets almost no traffic. It will be classified as "Admin Only" when the Travel Management Plan is locked into place. Last year we found several spots that required additional technical assistance to allow us to proceed. John

By "western end" do you mean when it gets down to FR393? That has always been the easy part. It's the eastern side that I've found to always be difficult.

West end meaning just south of Needle Rock park, where it crosses the river.

Thought meet time was 09:30. Kept trying to check Mud, but as Kevin said, it was broke. So, tried to catch up, got yo the shell about 9:35, Kevin's cel no work, John's was off, so I missed ya'll and ended up exploring the web trails at the end of Rio Verde and doing some other exploring.

Would a Ham radio help in this situation?

My cell was on. ;)

Note to self: Ask Santa for a Ham Radio and someone to talk on it as I talk on the CB.....

I thought of you, Tony, and checked my contact list - you're not there. That can be remedied...

I had thought of that a while back that we should have each others numbers as well as a contact (spouse) for each of us as we'll. ;)
