    I'm down here and I know there are also other members floating around. There was a pretty good Tucson Taco turn out at the Project Grad Extreme show last year.

    Where exactly is the Valley? And it surprises me that there isn't any meets around here, bc Tucson is huge.

    Had a very mini-meet at my house today. Had some fools over drinking up my beer while I was fine-tuning my kegerator. Good times.

    I am in town for the next 2 months at least. I am down speedway a ways at one of the hotels but I am always stopping by some of the pubs and good eating places around the U of A.

    If this rain continues for another day or two I might be up for a run out to Chiva falls this weekend to see if the falls are flowing. Or there is a good fun road just south that I found, Forestry road 143. I put up some pictures and a ride report in the Arizona section if you search for it. I am game for doing some exploring as well.

    I love chiva falls when there is water flowing, great times! It has been at least three years since I've been able to make it out there, really miss it. I cant wait to finish my SAS runner project and get back to wheeling. I drove past sh!t creek yesterday and it had plenty of water for wheeling through.

    Hahaha my current taco isnt the best at off roading

    hahaha yeah I am working on three of the five right now. I wish diesel trucks weren't so freaking expensive! I have a feeling that the 3.slow in the runner wouldn't be too happy if I tried to tow a double trailer with two minis on it.:(

    I am free for the next 3 days, thinking of taking a moderate/easy drive through some of the local trails if someone wants to around the Tucson area. Send me a PM if you want.

    Hello and welcome to Tucson...

    Here are pictures from Project Grad.

    Since the Tucson community is growing, maybe we can get something going... I live in NW Tucson, near Tucson Mall.

    Sure... I have a tow strap, 4x4, and plenty of power. It will cost you a pint of beer though, thats the going price.
