Title: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on May 11, 2013, 05:58:00 PM
I will be planning a meeting in mid to late June.  My suggestion would be either Child's Power Plant, or Mormon Lake area.  Looking for some input on timing and see who is interested in making a trip to get out of the heat.  

Child's Power Plant is here (http://goo.gl/maps/0Gzdn), next to a flowing river and a short hike from natural hot springs.  

Edit:
We will be caravaning up Friday night, we will be meeting at Carefree and 17 McDonalds at 6:30.  

The plan is to Camp out Friday and Saturday night, and head out Sunday.

I'm down for either location. Whenever should work for me too.

Do either/both places have fire restrictions?
Title: Re: June Meeting

There are currently no fire restrictions, however, still a month out and things can change quickly.

what dates are you looking at. Child's looks cool

Post by: Hammer (Avi) on May 15, 2013, 07:16:47 PM
Childs is one of my favorite camping spots.  The road is a forest service road and well kept up to the last mile or so before the camp site.  It gets a little bumpy but it is easily passable with a stock 2wd x.  I was thinking either the weekend of the 15th or the 29th.

Make it 29th I will be at my condo in Mexico drunk on the 15th
Title: Re: Re: June Meeting
Post by: Rosie on May 15, 2013, 08:49:33 PM
Maybe we should just change the meeting spot to remos condo in Mexico!

I also vote for the 29th though.

Post by: Hammer (Avi) on May 15, 2013, 10:12:00 PM
Not sure for June, usually go at the end of summer.  Currently a high of 90, low of 60.  Keep in mind it is right off the water and is shaded.  Also, about a mile from the site, there is the bluest river I have seen, with lots of jump offs and a rope swing.  So we may be playing in the river all day. 
Title: Re: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant
Post by: 11Pro4X on May 16, 2013, 03:56:59 AM
Too hot to camp IMO!  This is only a day meeting though correct?
Title: Re: Re: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant
Post by: timh on May 16, 2013, 05:13:05 AM
I sure hope its a camping trip.  Too far to drive for a day otherwise.  This sounds pretty good, I'll put it on the calendar.  I have been wanting to go there for a long time.

I'm sold with the river activities. Reminds me of my days in California. Fatter and older now so the splash should be more intense!

With any luck we might start getting a little rain towards the end of June. Our Arizona monsoon likes to start on the 4th of July around here, but you never know, we might get lucky and things could cool down a little ;D

Yes Childs sounds like a plan to me.  I will plan on heading down Friday night and set up a spot by the river.  Looking forward to this one as it is one of my favorite camping spots.

I'm in for the Friday caravan. We could meet up at the usual Carefree/I-17 meeting spot.

Post by: xterra06 on June 11, 2013, 02:10:05 PM
like the noob is going to know where the USUAL spot is.... i figured we all know where the anthem outlets are so why not meet there and go from there... be nice to camp out and hang out...
Title: Re: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant
Post by: sunny1881 on June 11, 2013, 02:40:35 PM
Usual spot is Chevron gas station off of the I17/Carefree Highway, east side of I17, normally meet at a gas station for people that need to top off there tank, get snacks, ice, etc...

I have a feeling I'm going to get lost on this one. I don't get out work till 6 so 2hr drive from Tucson puts me Phx at 8pm. So how far is it from the Chevron to the camp site.

It is an easy drive, but I like the idea of caravaning up there friday night.  So I am in for that.  Meet at the usual spot.

I think i am so down for this and i think my son will have fun. So what is the actual plan for meeting and what time and all that fun jazz? Does anyone know if a twin air mattress will fit in the back of the x?

Post by: AZXterra410 on June 17, 2013, 10:02:17 AM
I will be at the Chevron at the I-17 and Carefree HWY around 6:30 on Friday. If people want to meetup and caravan out, the more the merrier.

And yes a twinsize air mattress fits in the back of the x. My prefered method of sleeping.

I'm working on being able to go, but I am unsure. Was also invited to go to Long Lake which is further NorthEast to camp and possibly cooler. I'd like to meet up though.

Childs is a great little secret, you'll have fun 8)
As for Mormon Lake, Long lake, around Munds Park along 240, we camped there last week. It was D R Y, temps in the 90's and of course no water around. This is a no brainer, if you 're camping and looking to stay cool, get to the water. Bring kayaks or paddleboards there too. Have fun

There are a couple of rivers, last time i tried fishing the water was muddy and I wasn't having any luck.  That said, a better angler might do well.

This is def 2wd drive accessible.  It requires decent ground clearance, but a stock x 2wd is fine. 

I will be trying to make the caravan fri night.  Depends on when my gf manages to get out of work.

Post by: Rosie on June 26, 2013, 04:57:22 PM
Well, it's getting closer!

Since there are fire restrictions going on, we won't have a good ol' AZXC bonfire so there's no pitching in for firewood. Anything we members should collaborate on? What exactly is the club covering other than maybe a propane tank? Thought I'd ask. Andrew if you're bringing your stove I can bring some dogs and buns or whatever, gonna grab the usual chips and water and beer too. Any ideas?

No campfire sucks. :\ it's worth not burning down our great forests though.

And I am with Rosie, anything special to bring to make up for lack of bonfire?

AZXC usually provides a meal for events.  I would be happy to grab some dogs and brats, but I would need a stove with a griddle or a grill.  Does anyone have one?   
Title: Re: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant
Post by: Rosie on June 27, 2013, 11:44:23 AM
I do not... Andrew if you're still coming, gonna bring yours? Or Pit?

I'm gonna grab some bags of chips, plenty of water and some beer. Hopefully we can figure out the cooking situation tonight or early tomorrow, otherwise I suggest everyone bring some sammich fixings! Wish I had a portable stove to offer for use.
Title: Re: June 29th Meeting at Child's Power Plant

Ok, I just checked and I found my Coleman 2 burner camping stove. I also have 2 full tanks of propane for it. Ill bring them along.

EDIT: No griddle though so we will have to cook them in a pan.
