When you say "Southern Arizona", how far south? Tucson? Nogales? Personally, I wouldn't run any trails south of Tucson - just for the fact that there is a lot of criminal activity in the deserts near the US/Mexican border. In fact, the BLM has issued a public warning about the increased activity. They are now telling people to use extreme caution in the border areas, and they advise against helping people who appear stranded in the desert because they may be out to harm you / steal from you.
The rest of Arizona is not a problem. If you make it to Arizona, look up the following clubs: SWANKy (on nissan4wheelers.com), ONAZ (on nissanoffroad.net), and AZXC (at azxterraclub.com). Many of the members are in the greater Phoenix area, but some are located thoughout the state.
sorry for not clarifying, when i say Southern AZ, ill be in Sierra Vista (Ft Huachuca) for 2 months. Sounds like nothing has changed, i was there in 2006 and they said that "if you are ever hiking the trails and stumble around a drug Cache, do not touch it, just keep on walking, it was not meant for you and chances are someone is near keeping an eye on it."
thanks for the contacts, ill surely use them when i get there
I tried to find some muddy spots/trails online but the closest place is 1.5 hours away and there's no solo. I am very new to the community, so I have no one to wheel with yet. Any fellow xterra fans in the area? Anyone can recommend a spot I can use? Thank you.

If your from the SWFL (Southwest Florida) region then you've probably heard of "The Tram". It was just around 175 acres of somebody's backyard that allowed us rednecks to come by and tear it up. His well known mud holes that you went to (provided you make it through the Quarter Mile long Sugar...
Anybody know of anything good near the Texas panhandle? Peferably closer to Amarillo? Besides the Canadian River, I've been out there hundreds of times and there literally isn't anything new to see or do no matter what trail you take.
Dont get me wrong, it's fun as hell, but, i just dont find...
The Reading Anthracite Company (RAC) is now allowing people to off road on their land for a flat rate of $125 per YEAR
This is not far from the Rausch Creek Off Road Park, and that ALSO used to be a coal mining area, etc, so the terrain might be similar. ( I have not been to RAC yet).
