Just a heads up. I know you guys play in this area so double check that any area out East is still open. There is a ZERO tolerance policy being enforced.

Specifically the "cove areas" around Saguaro Lake are off limits as of today, the 17th.


Tonto closures ---> http://www.paysonroundup.com/news/2011/jun/16/area-closures-tonto-national-forest-begin-june-17-/?breaking

It sucks but 1 fire there and we'll never be able to wheel there again in our lifetime.
BLM been goin crazy with closures on shooting areas and now this. I need to step up my savings for buyin land. Maybe some day have enough property for these closures to not affect me.

You're going to have a tougher time heading out east or northeast of the valley since the forest boundaries extend just outside of town. Options are pretty abundant in any other direction heading out of the valley. Table Mesa road may a good option depending on where in Scottsdale you're coming from. Just be sure to bring a garbage bag to cleanup your casings and as many others as you can donate time for. Not to metion any targets... Obvious stuff of course. But when you look at the litter out there, it's clear to see that there a lot of people that ignore the obvious thing to do.
I think I responded to your post on your 4x4 not engaging. Did you make any progress on that?

Yeah I was thinking about table mesa road would be a good spot, wasn't sure if you were still able to after they shut it down for point of time. Also, i would be cleaning up all my stuff, especially the casings since I know someone that can repack them. As for the 4x4 I just got home and haven't had time to look at the post responses yet, will look here in a sec thank you.

Hey no prob man. I wanted that thing bad to go with the new lights I got for the bumper. But my daughters 10th B-Day said other wise. Glad it will get some use.

will do my best to put them through some good use prob going to use the lights it came with if they work wont be wired up for about a month though
Sounds good. Can't wait to see them on. Although if you decide you want to get rid of them let me know. Still wishing I would've grabbed them.

very much doubt it been looking at the truck wanting a light bar on it then you showed me that i saw one on cl for like $100 but it was w/o lights so your find was much better
Priorites suck sometimes. I also found a set of rims for about the same price. Been looking for a while since only 3 match. The set I found matched the odd ball so I would've had a matching spare too.

Hey guys. Sorry I havent been on in a bit. I have a ton of excuses :goodfinge


Just a heads up. I know you guys play in this area so double check that any area out East is still open. There is a ZERO tolerance policy being enforced.

Here's a link to a map with the current closures.

Thanks for the heads up. I will have to make some calls tomorrow and confirm exactly where and if they are still closed (which I would imagine they are).

IF we go, we will be heading to the lake early and probly leave around 4ish.

The BBQ on the 25th affected by the Tonto closures?
If the area is closed, its off. I will look into it tomorrow and update with what I find out. I have a gas grill I will be using, so there wont be any open fires, but if they have it totally closed, that wont matter.

No prob. Maybe next time...

So, if its on, it sounds like its:

Me
Gauge
AZ Rebel

Anyone I am missing??
