SAT 8-10-19 ADAT Payson area inspections

Post by -Spike- » Mon Jun 24, 2019 12:37 pm

We're going to the Payson area to escape the heat. Not sure where we'll be inspecting, but we know where we're meeting!

Meeting time and place-
9AM at the Maverik Gas Station 715 N Beeline Hwy, Payson, AZ 85541

Lunch will be provided for folks who let us know they're coming at least 24 hours before the event start time. Either register on the TRAL Event Calendar or reply to this thread. Please let us know if you plan on bringing guests. Look for the option to add a note if you register on the calendar.

Keep an eye on this thread for the latest updates.

We're planning to check out some of the kiosks around Payson with Tom D, who has volunteered to manage the maintenance of kiosks. We're going to start the day by signing the southern end of 1168, because we had to leave it unfinished on our last trip. We'll probably find some other trails to inspect along the way.

Looking forward to the run. I signed up, and left a note. I will be bringing two guests. Terry Zavilla and his wife Marie Zavilla. They will have their own Jeep. I think they are looking into becoming members. Steve D'Urso should be logged in and will be riding with me.

This one wound up being a short day, but still a lot of fun.

Headed out to Diamond Point, took us a while to get there but the views made for a great lunch spot!

After lunch ran a couple short routes in the area. Tom decided to bring the big truck! :eek:

Not the most technical route we’ve ever done, but his driving of the F150 was impressive all the same! He got pretty close to the tight trees a few times, but had no issues. Great driving!

Stopped off at this small cave. Didn’t wander down inside, but maybe John can post up some pictures?

As is common for the area, the afternoon storms were beginning to roll in, so called it an early day. Couple views from the drive out...

Wound up being perfect timing; aired up and got a free car wash on the 260 headed back into Payson!
