    Kind of all over. Started in Mohave Valley. Went to Kingman on a fire a few days. Ended up in Quartzite, then Yuma. Hit a fire on Cabeza Prieta NWR for a few days and got heat exhaustion, very close to heat stroke. Last 2 weeks were at Cibola Az.

    I think it fell out of the tree as was backing up the Pioneer to take a pick. 47d1dd9d84c086bad937de629ca15e9c.jpg

    In the warm months, that's a 24/7 rodent catcher, we have several that hunt in my wifes flower beds, I have never told her about them and she hasn't seen them! HA! When you ever see a King snake be careful, there's probably a bad snake around that it's hunting. Snakes don't bother me, when I was two, I caught a Copper Head and brought it into my Grand Ma's house, they freaked out! HA!

    Hey SouthwestORV we were thinking about bringing up the Class C RV and were wondering how the trails are in that area. Maybe staying in Clay Springs. Any thoughts?

    There is a wonderful motorized trail called the "Maverick Trail" that has the trail head in Clay Springs. What type of SxS do you have? I am not sure what accommodations there are for a Class C RV in Clay Springs, but there is certainly riding! There are fun trails to the south that access the Rim Road - a very well-known trail with endless offshoots and lots of wildlife. And the Maverick Trail is cool for sure, taking you all the way to the country club up by Hon Dah Casino. If your SxS is street legal you can have tons of fun. Hit me with any more questions. These are my stomping grounds.

    My wife told me our freezer in the garage was making noise. I told her she was crazy. I had unplugged and cleaned it out 2 days before. Sure enough she walks up to it in flip-flops and it starts buzzing. I peered into the hole by the compressor and sure enough there's a 6 ft rattler wrapped around the compressor. Used my parts grabber and got him by the throat close to his head. Took a while but he finally let loose of the compressor and got him out. Just then the Sears truck pulls up with our new upright freezer. The driver comes over and puts his hand on the snake head. I screamed at him for being a dumb ass, and went over to the shed and got a shovel. Gave the rattles to the Sears driver and the rest in the dumpster. Around our ranch East of Denver a dead rattler is the only good snake. Anyway, don't poo poo your wife. She may be right....the fridge isn't dead !

    We have a 1000-5 Deluxe that is street legal. We have been staying at the Payson RV campground and riding around that area the last couple of times we up that way. It would be nice to ride along the Rim Road tho. We tried heading west out of Pinetop once on the Rim Road once but ran into private land and turned around, figured we would look in the Clay Springs area. Fool Hollow is hard to get into this time of year. After looking at Google Maps for Taylor,Az. I figured you would be a good person to ask about the area. Thanks

    Helped a buddy who has a PHd in genetic microbiology take venom and blood samples from multiple rattlesnakes on the Snake river on the Idaho/Washington border. I don't like snakes, so it was a challenge to go out and look for them. Luckily, the rattlesnakes around here are tiny compared to the ones I ran across in Arizona...
