Campsite located in the Chiricahua Mts. Many different routes to get here. From Benson we go past Tombstone to Davis Rd to Left on Hwy 191. Head North a few miles until you come to Rucker Canyon Rd. From there follow your GPS.
Nice get together for old and new cachers.No big games to play at this event. Some new caches by us and a few more by another team. There are also some old caches out this way. One good cache to catch is Camp Rucker. Good History there.
Just a fun get together for geocachers to swap stories and tell lies. Also, nightly chat without a campfire.

Coords for NEW CACHES will be handed out at 9:00 AM on SATURDAY. New caches will be published later in the week so all attendees to this campout can have a chance for FTF.
LUNCH AT NOON . For the lunch on Saturday we will provide hamburgers/hot dogs/buns and the condiments. Also potato salad, dessert, chips, paperwear (plates, napkins, plastics). You're invited to bring a dish to share but you don't have to. BRING YOUR OWN BEVERAGES.
NOTICE: Some people have asked if quads and dirt bikes are allowed in this area. As far as we know, they are allowed but they are subject to Arizona State Land Department rules, which now includes the purchase of an annual OHV Decal.(See the OHV Decal FAQ for further details) We also have a few rules we will impose for the group.
1) Off highway vehicle use is restricted to existing maintained roads per USFS.
2) Do not ride directly through the main camp.
3) Please keep quads, atv's and dirt bikes on the periphery of the camp area.
4) Restrict your speed to an idle when within at least 1/4 mile of the main camp area.
