    Ok, so after talking to @tobiism and @nwaters2618 were going to be on Mt. Lemmon (Tucson Az) on Oct. 27,28 and the 29.
    We found a great spot that can host a good sized group. After missing a year were all stoked to get back together.

    If you all do another GTG in the northern part of the state, I'd love to come down. I'm just 40 minutes from the Four Corners.

    I've wanted to get to Mt. Lemmon and haven't had the opportunity...and still don't. I'm heading to San Francisco on the 24th and won't be back in time for the GTG. Unless the fires and poor air quality return to S.F., I'll have to miss this event.:(

    Clearly a navigation tutorial must be on my list because I can't seem to type these coordinates into maps and get directions. It's telling me Tunisia. :28:

    So I'm most likely in... Funny coincidence, I'm moving with my family to Picture Rocks / Tucson on October 30th. I have the thumbs up from the wife to go but who knows what might happen at the last minute. I'll have to bring some Sailor Jerry's Rum... Oh and first time hanging out in the woods down in Tucson :)

    Will fires be permitted? A fee for camping there? Can a compact car park there? Is there potable water there? I know, lots of questions.

    Thanks for the follow up Josh. Looks like a good time. I went down early Thursday morning and decided to do the Chiva falls 4x4 trail before I got to camp. All was good until my blazer wouldn't start when I went to leave. Fuel pump went out. I hiked to get cell service then camped there for the night. My buddy showed up Friday evening with a new pump then we changed it out. Night wheeling is fun until you break a u joint. One more night spent on the trail and I called it quits and went home Saturday morning. Time for some upgrades to the blazer.
    Sorry I missed out guys looked like good times.

    It's camping season now that the heat is gone. If it's a weekend and any of you guys want to go camping let me know. No need to wait a year for the next gathering.

    I'm up for that. My normal haunts are in the north of the state, but I'm willing to travel to any good spot.
