Took the south route in via 99th Ave which took almost 1.5 hours from Ahwatukee with one 5 mile error on a wrong turn. My first time through Maricopa since 1987, it's changed a "tad". Mobile is about the same. Returned via the powerline road which is faster/smoother/straight compared to 99th Ave. Though it's fun to watch the GPS as 99th is anything but what's plotted on maps. It's also a little more of a rally feel if you're into that stuff.

It was like Antarica on top, nothing beats sweating and freezing at the same time.
