Default 2011-11-30 Drive FYI

I'm going to take a drive out of the east valley this Wednesday to Winkelman, Globe, Roosevelt and Canyon Lakes. If anyone is interested I would gladly welcome you and will meet at the Chevron station located at US60 and Idaho Rd. at 9:30am. I will only stop there if you tell me you would like to go as well otherwise I'm not stopping. Here is the route for your consideration Winkelman Roosevelt and Canyon Lakes Loop - Google Maps

It will take 4-5 hours to complete depending on speed and stops.

Scott, I would love to make that trip, but unfortunately, I have to work.

Yeah, what he said.

Do a preliminary run and then schedule another for a Saturday/Sunday in January.

Tinner, You're walking a thin line right now. Keep it up and we're going to start getting you and Ralphie confused. I'll see you on Yarnell on New Years day ... if you make it more than 78 miles this time.. . I know. That was a shot, but it was a good one!

Hey, I'm staying out of this conversation.

By the way, ScottM., how did your ride go?

I had some mechanical issues... car has been stored for a while and looks like my gas is bad, lot of sputter and some backfiring. Working on fixing that issue now. I did this route a couple of weeks ago on my Harley and it was great, I highly recommend it.

See everyone on Saturday!

Scott, my car was stored over 6 months, in my garage over the summer with temps over 115F, put on a charger over night and it started and ran just fine. I did put Sta-Bil in the system however, I believe in the stuff.

I thought I had used it as well, but it has been a while. Funny thing is that I drove it a month ago and it was fine... guess I just stirred up all of the guck.

Scott, Bring your car out Saturday to the party in Scottsdale. I'm sure everyone would welcome you.. Any new face is better than looking at Ralph and Chuck all day!

UUUUUUUUHHH, that hurts! But you have never seen Chuck at the annual party, he's been to a lot of places but never there.
I think Chuck is on your mind a lot,all these women we've seen you with is just a diversion to let us think you like girls!
