Rich,

Any thoughts on a meet and greet for Folks near us this year?
Hello Patrick
I am thinking about a recurring meet that would be scheduled for maybe the last Saturday of each month. Not sure whether am or pm works best. The location is up in the air, we have a lot of people spread out across the valley. If you have thoughts I would love to hear about them, I have never set up anything like this, fairly new to being a member rep. I would be open to suggestions. I think somewhere in the area of 202/101 confluence(s/e valley), I know a member who has a Toyota shop near there and maybe we could use his shop‘ s parking lot to get started. It would be near freeway access. Maybe a coffee shop would work. Thoughts would be appreciated.

When we're not in Florida or elsewhere, we're in southeastern AZ at ~5,600 feet near Ft Huachuca... Jeeps, 4x4 dually, AWD van, ATVs, 6x6 amphib, and a 4x4 tractor!

And a Hey! to neighbor member DaleRF

Checking in from Apache Junction. Since my last post I've spent quite a bit of time out and about on local trails such a Box Canyon, Bull Dog, Reymert Mine and others.

I have learned a lot but there is one thing I am struggling with which is navigation. I have onX Offroad on my phone, a Garmin InReach for satellite communications and a beginner's understanding of how it works. But, I need to learn a lot more about how to get maps, overlay different map types/sources and find my way.

Anyone have any good online sources or willing to run me through this essential skill?

Hello Michael, I am also working to improve my skills for nav’s. Have you tried Gaia?

Checking in from central Phoenix! I see a few nice rigs around my neighborhood and wouldn't be surprised if others were on here also. Cheers.
Hello Stephen, which part of Phoenix are you located?
I’m near 20st and Greenway raceway.
