Okie Dokie, It’s that time of year again, time for the 4th Annual Amigos Parker, AZ Thanksgiving Run. The date: November 24th Thursday through November 27th Sunday. The place: Parker, AZ. Wheeling type: The wheeling is Parker is awesome, but not for the weak body guys. This place has some great wheeling, but if you like your sheetmetal, bring a motorcycle, the trails in Parker will flat out tear up a full size blazer, especially the ones we run. There are some milder trails, but I don’t know where they are? The trails are tight and rocky, and have lots of small waterfall/ledges on them. There is always damage and breakage at Parker; it’s just a matter of who is going to break. On a side not, this is one of the best trips we take every year, we always leave Parker with a great trip under our belts. This place is a blast and it’s hard not to have a great time here. On Thursday we do the whole turkey thing, last year we rotiserised a huge turkey and had stuffing, gravy and the whole thing, it was awesome!!!!! The camping is awesome no matter where we are, its great fun for the kids, and the adults. Fishing for the kids, Christmas boat parade every year along the water and the kids can run and roam safely. The cost to camp is somewhere between 14 to 18 dollars a night. Plenty to do for the women who don’t want to wheel every day, town is not far away. The weather this time of year is absolutely AMAZING. Cool in the nights, enough for a fire, and nice in the days, tee shirts and light jackets. If there is any trip to go on, this is it. It’s one of the best times we have all year, and always talk about it for months after. The tow or the drive to Parker is sweet, if you are thinking about towing, there are almost no hills to get there, and it’s just about flat. It takes about 3 to 3.5 hours to get there and from the valley is real easy. Don’t miss this trip! To all reading this post, I am going to say this again about the trails in Parker, THEY ARE NOT FOR THE WEAK OF STOMACH IF YOU LIKE YOUR SHEETMETAL! These trails will flat out tear up your sheetmetal. I’m not trying to scare you away, the trip is still fun, but just understand there is no way to stay out of the body on this trip! If you don’t want to trash your truck, then come and hang out and watch, for find an extra seat with someone, or walk and hang out. Just don’t expect easier trails with no body damage. The camping spot is to be announced after I talk with the campgrounds and see what kind of space is available. There is usually not a problem. Camping is on a first come first serve basis in Parker, they do not take reservations. So here is what you have to do if you are thinking of attending this trip. POST UP YOUR INTENTIONS, IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT I UNDERSTAND WHO ALL IS ATTENDING, AS IT WILL EFFECT THE CAMPSPOT AND SUCH. SO IF YOU ARE REALLY GOING TO ATTEND POST UP WHEN YOU ARE ARRIVING AND HOW YOU ARE CAMPING, TENT MOTORHOME, POPUP…. See you all in Parker!!!!
