    AZRR's "Dirt Therapy" is 100% Free!!!

    This will be AZRR's biggest event yet! Starting the day off at Earnhardt Ford for a FREE breakfast from 7:00AM-10:00AM, you'll get a chance to talk with local vendors in the offroad industry.

    We'll end up meeting at base camp at 11:00AM to start airing down and laying out the plan for the day.

    **Base Camp will be located close to here. Final location TBD: https://goo.gl/maps/WFZVJTCEy2t

    For this event, you'll have to choose between intermediate, tight, slow paced trails OR high speed trails. Both groups will be starting at the same time, so you only have an opportunity to do one or the other. You'll want to pack in a lunch either way.

    After a few hours, both groups will make their way back to base camp where we can all just hang out or if you'd like hit the dirt, it will be just feet away from camp.

    At around 4:00PM we'll start our "mini" run which is a short, very fast paced loop around the base camp. This will be individually ran and is open to everyone attending the event.

    The goal for the day is to allow everyone to experience all different types of terrain while having a laid back atmosphere.

    After sun down, we'll settle down for the night and if anyone wants to stay out and camp, you are more than welcome to join us! Just make sure you bring dinner and breakfast for the morning!

    Sweet I will be there for Earnhardt's and base camp at 11:00am. Have to head back to Casa Grande for family gathering after that.

    If anybody needs a radio , I have a Icom chase package with mag mount kit new in the box. $300 and a Kenwood TK736HK new in box radio $375 with antenna body mount only. Radios are already programmed bought from PCI. I am waiting for my Kenwood remote mount Unit but the BAJA 1000 has delayed things. ,

    I will be unable to receive PMs for next month . Email [email protected] if anybody is intrested. Save me from listing them on Ebay.

    Sounds like I'm going to miss a good one! Daaaammmit. I am going to try to make the breakfast at Tex's and do some schmoozing, but me back still isnt healed up enough to do a run. Ryan, @thearizonacowboy what are you looking for as a GPS requirement? I have a tablet w/GPS and was planning to load a mapping program into that.

    Sorry you can't make it! Regarding GPS, anything that will run a USR, GPX, or KML file with reliable GPS service is just fine. My go-to is a 5" Lowrance.

    Definitely try and make breakfast as we won't be doing as many runs this next year. Probably just a couple unfortunately...
