BOE Fun Run – October 14th

On Saturday October 14th I’ll be leading a BOE fun run. The plan is to depart from the Beatty community center at 10:00am. The route will take us over to the hill west, past the sheriff’s office to the previous course used by the Legacy race group where we will proceed south for approximately 14 miles. We will then turn westward and follow Indian Pass Road, through Indian Pass and continue to the end where we will find an old mine site and other possible points of interest.

After our pause we will backtrack on Indian Pass Road but instead of going north on the racecourse we will continue eastward until reaching, and then crossing US95 and traveling along the Saga mine road, past the Saga mine and the Monolith mine. We’ll continue this route until we make a left turn and travel up Tarantula canyon, past Specie Springs and over Secret pass to Degerstrom Road and back to Beatty.

Please refer to the second sentence above and notice it starts with, “The plan”. Everyone naturally desires for “plans” to be successful; however, considering the recent heavy rains there is always a chance this plan may have to be adapted along the way. I have recently traveled all of the route except for Indian Pass Road. So, that is the unknown part. I am hoping we can traverse all the way to the end. I must tell everyone that the part of the route through Tarantula canyon to the top of Steve’s pass is quite rugged and might be a little sketchy in a few places but who doesn’t like a little excitement? It’ll be fun. 

Finally, please make sure your vehicle of choice is in sound mechanical condition with everything in good working order. Check fluids including oil, engine coolant and battery. Be sure tires are in good condition and properly inflated.

Bring beverages and lunch. 

We will take periodic breaks, so no one will get too bored just driving along. Let’s all take care to make this a truly fun run and I look forward to seeing you all on the 14th.

By the way, we will also be in the path of an 80% solar eclipse on that day during our ride. Pretty cool, huh?
