Kingfisher,
Are you getting an idea about what a white elephant sale is? Have anything newish (boxed, unopened even better) that you hate and want to get rid of? It is hilarious (especially after one of Louis' martinis).

Sergio and I just had dinner tonite with Ken and Linda and we have put the final touches on the planning. We will be sending a schedule via email to all who have signed up over the next week or so. One of the things we are going to do this year is have a Pancake breakfast one morning, graciously provided by Bob, Lou and Julianne. We do ask that each rig be prepared to provide enough of their favorite breakfast meat to feed those in their party.

There will be more to follow. This is going to be great, and it looks like we are going to have many new folks joining the 4CU.

The damn old white Elephant said the trailer is to small to get in.So he going to stay home and drink Bloody Mary's.

I will be borrowing Jimmini's binoculars...last time, Richard and I took the 'scenic' back route out of the NO-WAY ascent...a few miles later, we lucked into a ride back to the entrance to the loop...climb on, you game folks...I'll watch...well, maybe I'll have a Bloody Mary and a shrimp while watching...coming early, staying late...

Hike to the top is optional

Mike,
I'm actually considering just doing the big loop vs. climbing the peak this year (unless there is overwhelming demand). Take the Hunter trail up to the saddle then descend to the Sunset Vista trail on the back side. Probably about 5 miles for the whole hike back to the Quail Loop. Hikers will still get to experience the steel cable hand holds and steep steps (crawling and sliding on your backside is OK here) that the trail is "famous" for. And they can veer off for the peak summit from the Sunset Vista junction. That is what I'm planning. I think we can also do some warm up hikes on the other days too.

Ken,
The back loop is relatively easy, once you go down the vertical drop that doesn't appear on the map...sliding on your butt would be easier if the drop wasn't so steep...maybe I'll just drive to the backside turnaround and ferry you folks that want the scenic loop...HINT...take at least two bottles of water, and DON"T put yer sandwich in a poor man's tupperware(wally bag)...mine tore, and a braver person than me rescued my sandwich from the edge of a precipice...who WAS that masked man...?

Here is a map of the park and the trails. The back trail (Sunset Vista) is long and has a few interesting spots. I'm thinking peak this year because I did not do it last time. Anyone else?

BTW, we will be camping in the Quail Group Area which is also on the map.

Karen and I will again this year remain at camp to ensure no one steals it.

It's rough duty but we'll do it for the team.

*"Min, Could we have another one please?*

I intend to be where I have been for the last several days, standing outside Jimmini's trailer...cup in hand(got my name marks-a-lotted on it) at before sunrise, waiting for Jim to get up!!!...when Min shows up, I may have a plate in the other hand...trying to imagine life without the desert is like hitting oneself with a hammer...Milo, you and Karen have the six covered...I'll take on the duty watch, long as I can nap...

rockhound state park

On my travel to the rally ...i first thought about staying at the SKP park Dream Catchers in Deming, and may still, but discovered Rockhound State Park while reading here...Looks nice...any recommendations??

And then being adventurous I was plotting a route to avoid IH10.... where I would travel from Lordsburg NM via US 70 West to Globe AZ, then picking up US 60 and AZ 79 to Florence AZ then AZ 287..AZ 87 to the park..

anyone know these routes or have any thoughts???

thanks......
