It was one of the best trips I have ever been on and I cannot wait to do it again next year! The Parker 4-Wheelers Put on a first class show. There are so many great trails in the area, if you have never been you need to put it at the top of your list.

Yes. The food out there is great. I had been before so I didn't take any pics but maybe I can find some old ones to post up.

LOL!! Nah, there are people from all over the world here, the west coasters just do a lot and are vocal about it. If you need some help putting something together, let me know and I'd be more than happy to help in anyway that I can :)

I wanted to try and make it down for the Blue Water Parker 425 race Feb 1-3. Just might have to hit some trails and make a run out to that desert bar.

Well I'm not much of a drinker myself :crazyeyes: but this looks like a good run to go on. Maybe sometime in the spring when I'm down for an extended stay in Vegas?

Here are some pics of the desert bar.


These trails are anywhere from 7 to 20 miles from the casino.

If you all decide to make a trip out and have room for an AZ guy let me know. Our local group plans on heading back out in march.
