I enjoy off-roading, camping and road-tripping' across the U.S. and into Mexico. I will strive to help provide a more relaxing trail run experience with detailed and accurate information through trail reviews. I too, have been there when following information of other publications, found that a section of the trail was not mentioned and was left scratching my head asking 'what are we going to do'. I absolutely love my state and know there are many more historical and scenic trails I have yet to explore. Additionally, Erick has had the privilege of experiencing sticky rock of Moab and would love to return. One of His wife’s quotes is; why would you want to go overseas when there is so much to see on our continent. Other fun things he likes to do include: visiting Arizona's wine country and staying the night at historical and recreational cabins that are a bit off the beaten path. Erick works for the City of Peoria and in his spare time tinkers with his 1992 full-size Bronco because it is always a work in progress. Erick is an active member of AZ Bronco Club, and and was 2017 full-size Bronco of the year winner, as high lighted in The Lemkes believe in God because they have seen and experienced His many blessings.

Indian Fort (04/03/2021)
We always take out of towners to the Indian Fort and then on to Tip Top Mine/Town which isn't listed. That's ok, because like the town of Gillett it now appears that the land and the towns Ruins are now privately owned. there is many signs reading private property but also a locked gate. There's is no access to the town so don't waste your time driving down to cattle corral. Back to the the Indian Fort, the trail is clearly marked there's really nothing to report, oh yeah we got there before anybody else by the time we climbed up to the top, at least 20 rzrs showed up from a commercial outfit. 20 rzrs 2 seats 40 people. They are over running the trails. Enough of the rant. The Indian Fort trail in my opinion is a easy trail narrow in spots, and with the off camber don't run it in the rain. Ill get some pictures of the signs posted.
Elvis Trail (11/14/2020)
6 Broncos completed the trail hitting the first water fall head on finding out the front locker was not working. Messaging the skinny pedal and brake pedal success was on the horizon. If you want a mild challenge & add a twist to this trail go at nite its hard enough during the day in a full size vehicle but a moon light run takes it over the top. This is a fun trail Go prepared, and with extra Vehicles and Parts (just in case)!
