Josh Vigh
58:12
you have an Apache Trail that goes to it right?
Andy White
58:16
"Dog Dazer II, sonic deterrent" on amazon, works well if you point it right at the dog. And on some cattle.
Tad Haas
58:22
Thanks for session. Good idea about group bike packing. If you need somebody to check out WA rides let me know. ;-)
Patty Urton
58:24
So 38 size tires would not work well for AZ gravel in general?

58:33
right now apache trail is closed

you have to get to Roosevelt from the backside right now
Josh Vigh
58:54
can't remember the name of the road...

Andy White
01:04:33
Unfortunately, AZ DOT does not have good mapping of gravel vs paved roads.

01:05:41
We have 70,000 miles of gravel and dirt roads in Iowa with county maps that are color coded
