We climbed around some of the rocks at Saguaro and hiked around the end of the north road heading off the main loop. Forget the name of the road. It's about 1/2 mi dirt going north and dead ending. We wanted to do Mt. Lemon but it was incredibly crowded. TV news showed total gridlock up there.BTW it's DAVIS Monthan AFB, not Davin Monthan. It won't let me edit it now. Amazing to see how many of our great planes are just sitting there rotting. I wonder how many of the F-4s, A-6s, A-7s and CODs I saw fly when I was on a carrier are sitting in that boneyard now. One interesting thing they told us - they are cutting up and destroying all the F-14s now. They don't want to risk any of the parts getting over to Iran for their air force. Seems like we should just bomb their air force anyway since they are supporting terrorism and killing our guys. Then we won't have to worry about what they might do with the parts. And keep our F-14s in one piece.

That's a shame about cutting up the F-14s.I don't see how the parts could walk away if they are sitting in the AZ desert.I think W would have done them in if he had more time,the guy who didn't get elected certainly would have,I don't know what the new guy will do
Didn't mean to get political

There are several vendors they sell parts to for various reasons. I suppose they figure the potential for a lot of cash under the table in exchange for those parts is just too great.

That viewpoint I'm parked at is on the way to the ruins. It's an incredible view off camera to the right but it was total whiteout then.

Where is Queen Creek?

Pics look cool Chris.

Last article I read, we sole a BUNCH of F14s to Isreal. They were stripped down models without all our missle guidance computers etc. Still good for a good old fashioned dog fight with the Iranians but, not something that would cause any of our current fleet any problems taking them apart from several miles away if they got in the wrong hands and we needed to eliminate them.

Sucks to see such a wonderful machine be decommissioned but, it did serve it's purpose well and now it's time to move on. The F22 Raptor is one bad *** machine. Looks like we finally did something right with that fighter.

As for politics... the one who got elected (by the ignorant masses may I add) won't do **** to protect this country. His main area of concern at the moment is to disarm Americans so we can't protect ourselves from our government if need be. Next order of business will be to allow his terrorist buddies access to our terminals to prepare for another attack.

OK, 2nd part of that may be speculation. But, with known terrorist affiliation, how the hell did "We the people" allow him to be elected? Oh yeah, cuz he's black. Stupid people of America. I knew from day one when he said he was running it would be between him and Hillary. Not for their political views but for the purpose of getting either a black man or a white trash biitch in office.

Thing that pissed me off the most... At the mall the other day, saw a T-Shirt hanging in the window of a store. On the shirt was a picture of Obama with one fist raised above his head. The txt read "BLACK POWER".

PISSED ME OFF!!!

DANG SG! I coulda stopped by and said "Hi!" We cruised over to Scottsdale before heading up to Payson and home. I think someone on here was south of Tucson over Xmas and I meant to contact him to cruise by his motorhome/5er to meet him too, but never had a chance to get on line before I left.

I agree with all of what you said.If there had been a shirt with any white man on it in a mall window that said white power that store would have been burnt to the ground.Well I guess all we can say is we voted but not for him
