For those who always suspected...

Just got back from Rocks and Wheels Roctoberfest, its trail names are entirely appropriate. Candy Ass which is tougher than most trails I've been on, then there was Hard Ass that was definitely something! Hard enough that it destroyed one of my kevlar MT/Rs, the first ever for me in 11 years of running them.

So anyway, here are just a bunch of photos for what Arizona is like. Gorgeous terrain, awesome wheeling, HOT!

Wish I could have joined you Jerry! You need to make it down to where I'm at next time in the east valley. The wheeling out here near Florence is exceptionally awesome!

You ought to move to Arizona. You can get cheap houses down here (I can find you super nice ones all day long for 250k tops), the weather is excellent, and the politics are good too ;)

When I first saw this thread title I thought for sure it was going to be a spoof on my “Arizona wheeling” thread lol! Welcome to Arizona. I’ll have to check these trails one of these days.

By the way, the next day's trail I had to miss due to the slashed tire was called Sucker Punch with a couple more trails following that on Friday and Saturday.

I nominate these runs... Candy Ass, Hard Ass, and Sucker Punch for being the world's greatest EVER offroad trail names! :ROFLMAO:
