The Gap has it all!
Grades, off-camber, twisties, shelf roads, ledges, and.....The Step, one of Arizona's harder obstacles. We'll run the Gap from Oracle to Catalina so those who are interested can go "up" the Step. Check out the trip details:

Meeting time: 7:45 am
Pull-out time: 8:00 am

Tucson
Meeting place: Circle K in the Town of Oracle. Directions: From Oracle Jct (southeast of Florence)....head north up AZ77. Turn right at the Business District sign in Oracle and go about 1/2 mile to the Circle K (north side ofthe road). 660 Old Highway 77, Oracle, AZ 85623
Meeting Time: 10:00 AM
Pull-out Time: 10:15 AM

Trail Difficulty: Mostly a 3.0 with some 3.5 sections and one 4.0 obstacle, (optional). Any stock Hummer can complete this trail. Undercarriage protection and locker recommended but not required.
Brush Report: Some, in a few places.

If you intend to come please post up so we can keep a head count for the

Todd and I are out. I don't know what Todd's excuse is, but mine is financial - the company I work for informed us that they don't have the
funds to make payroll, so I have to watch what I spend Image
