  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

FINAL CALL! Who is coming?! Flag2GC 2018 - 8/3 thru 8/5
« on: August 17, 2017, 03:15:41 PM »
FINAL CALL! Who is coming?!

This years event we will need more volunteers! We usually need a minimum of 10 rigs to cover 10 checkpoints, but it looks like we're going to need at least 12. Once we arrive, and we have an ACTUAL number, we can assign checkpoints, SAG station or any number of areas to help with. There will be a few more checkpoints this coming year that will have to cover. If we have a enough confirmations I can start assigning spots ahead of time.

Last year, AZXC helped raise funds for Randy Miller. We raised $1090, not including any swag or other raffle tickets purchased individually. We plan to that again every year, and I hope more of you can volunteer as well as have a hand in fundraising. Even if you do not attend or are able to be on the trail we can use your help. We'll add the donate buttons and links when the time comes.

When:  Aug 4th - Aug 6th
Where:  Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  61 mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp". !!! Start Camp for us will be somewhere different than the riders, location posted below. !!!

On Saturday, we are up early, before the riders start which is 7am, and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail. We are on parked on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks, shade). On Saturday, late afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp"). At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer. After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre! On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board). That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of high clearance or 4wd vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

Here is a link to the Flagstaff2GC event website:  http://flag2gc.com/

Let's make this an even greater year for Nissans at this event!

Start Camp location for us will be here, unless the event changes maps. -> https://goo.gl/maps/L4Z2d7QooqL2 , it is near last years 1st checkpoint. Here are the coordinates - (35.395493, -111.756143). It is not far from the 180. The actual camp site might be exact depending on the trees, but we'll be on the left side of the road and before the cattle gate. So if you go over the cattle gate, you missed our camp.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, we will be handing out maps and sharing pertinent info. We will need to be ready to roll pretty early as the riders start riding at 7am and they are much much closer to the checkpoints, which gives us less lag time to get there. We all need to be at designated checkpoints before the riders get there. And for you noobs, there are riders that can beat us to checkpoints.


Otherwise, we're there to ensure the safety of the riders so we'll need to cover the checkpoints. If you know anyone who has a high clearance vehicle or 4wd invite the to come along with you.

If anyone has connections for vendors or donators please let me know. I've attached to the original post, on the attachments section the event's updated sponsorship form. Potential sponsors can also get it from the website.

I need to start confirming and getting shirt sizes. The sooner the better the guarantee you all get shirts before they are handed out to everyone else. Post up if you are coming, when you think you'll be able to head up and your shirt size.

Thank you!

What day? It is pet friendly, as long as the pet is leashed. At end camp there were be other dogs, and lots of people. If you are all on the trail, it is going to be a long slow pace. We make lots of stops to enjoy the scenery and wait for bikers.

So this is how it goes. We camp Friday night away from the riders. They go to bed early. We stay up and drink. We then have to be up early, pack our gear and be to our checkpoint before the first rider passes. The race starts at 7am. Meaning we are usually up and on the course by 6:30-6:45 depending on where your checkpoint it. Then you wait. You may have some HAM operators at your checkpoint. Its always nice to chat with someone. When the riders pass bye it then becomes more fun. You really will not know when all 200 riders have passed until you see the sweeper or the rigs that were stationed at checkpoints before you. Then you jump in line behind them and enjoy the slow pace along the course to all of the remaining checkpoints. As the group approaches the last rider late in the day it becomes the waiting game. Remember that we are their to support them, so that means we stay behind and not get in the way. Typically the last rider will cross between 4:00 and 5:00 PM. We then go set up camp and let the evening festivities begin. Like Rob said. there will be the 200 riders plus their family and pets along with all of the volunteers for the event at end camp.
If you feel like your pets would be okay with this then bring them.

I posted this over on SCCX, we'll see if there's any bites. I can't attend because I'll be in Arkansas for work.
