DISC GOLF & SCENIC DAY TRIP Sunday April 27th, 2014 Phoenix, AZ
We have a fun day planned for late April before the valley heat sets in. The plan is to meet early and play a round of frisbee golf (aka Disc Golf) then depart to Cave Creek area for lunch and then a scenic drive out to Bartlett Lake and the 7 Springs area to scout out future camping spots plus it's good to just get out and drive your bus.
Disc Golfers: We are meeting at Buffalo Ridge Park 8:45-9:00am and playing a round. A couple of us have a few spare discs to loan or bring your own. Cost is FREE! What's disc golf? Just like regular golf but you use specially designed frisbees and the pin is an elevated basket that you toss the frisbee into.
Day Trippers: Meeting at Buffalo Ridge Park 10:45-11:00am where you'll see the sweaty disc golfer group finishing up and lying about how far under par they were. Plan to depart about 11:00am heading to Cave Creek for some lunch and plan our scenic adventure route.
Buffalo Ridge Park: 19250 N. 16th St. Phoenix, AZ (north east corner of Union Hills & 16th St) From Phoenix, take I-17 north to loop 101 East. Exit at 7th St. and stay on access road (Beardsley) to next right on 16th St. then next left at Wescott Dr. the turn left into park. Disc golf begins near restrooms.
MT PINAL CAMPOUT May 16-18th, 2014 Near Globe, AZ.
Join your bus camping friends for a scenic weekend spring trip that is 17 miles up an easy gravel road to the top of Mt. Pinal near Globe, AZ (only 80-miles from Phoenix) Directions: Head east on Hwy-60 and just before Globe, AZ you will see a stoplight where Hwy-88 heads north...this is where you head south on Russell Rd. Pay attention to the street signs as Russell Rd. zigs and zags through town before it turns into a gravel road. The gravel road is not well marked...just stay on the most beaten path and as long as you are still going "up" you are on the right road and you wont miss our camp at the very top. You'll be rewarded with one of the most stunning views you can see from a bus. Lots of hiking and mountain biking opportunities. When feeling lonely the forest service lookout will invite you to join him in the tower that's 7600 feet above sea level. The weather changes without warning so camp under the trees and expect 85-35 degree temps, fog, hail, ferocious winds, insect swarms, rain and thunder that will crack your ear drums. In other words perfect for camping in a bus. Oh, and a few of the rabble bring along fire arms which they expend at a range at the bottom of Mt. Pinal. There will be a ridiculous Saturday evening pot luck so bring your favorite dish.
