Recently moved to AZ. Just started exploring the area around Camp Verde. Lots of opportunities in the adjacent Prescott & Coconino National Forests. From my driveway, in one direction, Coconino NF is literally less than 1/4 mile away, Prescott NF about 2 miles. I forgot how rocky it is here in AZ. Got back into rock riding form after about a 1/2 hour. Here are some pics from my first Prescott NF 77 mile loop.

Awesome pics!!  

Just paid the tags on my orange bike ($206) and red bike ($126).  Saw the tags on your bike are now AZ; what did your bike cost to register 😡

Hey Jim, when is the house warming (or the Amgems rally?)  smiles.  Now that it has dropped below 100 degrees out there, hope to see ya soon. Wishing you the best with your new pad and new trails.  Cheers

Loved this area when we did the AZ BDR. The chocolate baby N.F. is fantastic.

Would love to come and visit, send a ping out when you're ready for an exploration partner.

 

Good luck out there, be safe - keep the pics coming

They called it the "Non-Soon" this year. Much lower rainfall than usual. We did get a few really cool storms though. Fun for me to watch. The big rough tough German Shepard (cough-cough) didn't care for them much. The mapping continues. Lots of work ahead. I missed a lot of turns and hidden trails that are on the maps. Next time out I'll try to find them.

Don't remember exact numbers, but it was about the same as CA. I got two tags, one for street and one for off road. Street one was about same as CA. Off road one was something like $25. Money goes to some kind of trail fund? I just did what the lady told me to do.

Miss you Jim, sure looks nice there.

It is a very nice area. I did my research before moving. Lots of riding, moderate climate for AZ. Still available for breakfast club rides with enough notice. About 6 hours from here to Kendalls.

Once we get some more stuff done on the house, I'll get more time, explore more, and then will for sure be happy to escort the Californians on some rides.

Hopefully we'll be retired in the same state sometime in 2020..........I'll meet you over in Williams for base camp then we can do day loops out to South Rim/Flagstaff/Sedona/Prescott/etc......or I'll just drive over to your place :coolio:
