some of us in the backroaders do mid-weeks runs all the time, so keep a constant eye on that board. It's a vital organization with tons of great folks.
we've also recently grown an affection for Arizona. I just led our monthly November Club run out to Cyclopic Mine out of White Hills, AZ. I'm sure we'll expand out to Utah one of these days, too!
It's stark out here, but it has its own beauty, too!
just depends on what kind of stuff you wanna do. there's some rock-crawling, and dirt roads leading to everywhere. old mines, ghost towns to see, etc. Death Valley is close by, so are Zion, Arches, Grand Canyon, some stuff out in California, etc.
