Title: Meetup on 2/22/14! (OP updated 2/9/14 - Broken Arrow run!)
Post by: HBIII on January 17, 2014, 09:20:20 AM
Hi all! I just received confirmation that 'Surf & Snow' and 'Travzilla' from thenewx.org site will be coming down to visit over the 2/21-2/24 weekend! I met a few people over the 2014 kickoff run that expressed interest in meeting these guys while they are here, so I wanted to put a meet together asap.

I'm thinking lunch on Saturday at the 22nd. Is there a spot AZXC meets usually work best? If not, I'll pick some place within a week or so.

2/9/14 - Update

We are set to do a Broken Arrow day run

Meetup time: 8:30am

Location: The Chevron Gas station just off of the I17 and Carefree Highway.


The following have said they are going:

Hammer
Rosie
HBIII
SlapshotKing
AZ Ted
XID
Tacomatosis04
Rushnrockt

Why don't we do a day run instead?

Twin Peaks on Camelback and 20th would work.  They have plenty of parking, and they will be showing the UFC170 fight that night.

Funny you say that. They mentioned interest in doing a day run too. I'm down for whatever.

Who is up for a day run? I wouldn't have an idea where since I am still new to the area.

If the run doesn't work, Twin Peaks on 20th St and Camelback is perfect as we will be very close to it.

Definitely interested. More interested if there is a day run too :)

Me too. But where? Sheep's Bridge? Something like that?
Title: Re: Meetup on 2/22/14!
Post by: HBIII on January 28, 2014, 09:33:45 PM
Day run is gaining traction  ;D

Let's plan on that first. Again, I have no idea where to go so if you have a suggestion and are willing to lead go right on ahead.
Title: Re: Meetup on 2/22/14!
Post by: AZ-Ted on January 28, 2014, 09:39:02 PM
Sheep's Bridge is a fun trail.  If you run it from the East side of Table Mesa, be sure to get a State Trust Land Permit, as much of the trail is on state land.

Give yourself a minimum of 4-6 hours for that run.

These guys are traveling a quite a ways, although from what I remember back on Newx, S&S is usually on the road anyhow.. I say Broken Arrow. Sure, we've driven it 101 times (well, I have), but there's a reason a whole industry (4wd tours) popped up there and runs like it does. Nowhere else in the states (Moab excluded of course, and our rocks are prettier) can you get traction like that in scenery like that.
Just sayin'..  8)

I'm in.  I'll be in a Barlow Jeep Rental (I won a free rental at the last Table Mesa Cleanup).  I'll most likely meet you guys at the trailhead (so that you don't have to wait on me when we get to Sedona).

What other trails are you planning on running?  Broken Arrow is very short, and we could do a few other trails (Soldier's Pass, Greasy Spoon, Schnebely Hill, etc.) while we are up there.

Ha!  I wish.  I personally know Nena Barlow, and I wouldn't want to beat on her Jeeps needlessly.  She's an awesome person, and a great representative of the offroading community.  Her company always donates to the various trail cleanups, and she and her crew donate their time, too.

I have all the time in the world, but I don't know what other trails are in the area. Sounds like a few are close so I will say yes to more, but not sure which ones. Tough for me to plan the day since I have only been in state a few months. I'll try to figure out something more definitive and post it shortly.

Check with Ted and/or Vince, Ive only run Broken Arrow before, but these guys know the area/trails more and can recommend and maybe trail lead another trail or 2, whatever is best. I'd like to go but dont want to go just for Broken Arrow, I'd like to run others as well.

I did Broken Arrow stock, with aluminum foil rails just fine. Your excuse does not fly here!

Oh, and I am in.

True, Ive done Broken Arrow before in my X and it's not difficult and need for skids is slim but if another trail is ran there may be a need for skids (I dont know havent run other trails in the area). Also if only Broken Arrow is being ran and nothing else, I dont want to go just for that trail as I have run it before and IMO it's not that great, scenic yes but thats about it, kind of boring otherwise.

I've done Soldiers Pass and Greasy Spoon/Diamondback Gulch before and can get us there if needed.
IMO Soldiers Pass was just OK.  It's a short in and out trail and from what I recalled it's kinda tight.  I ran it once and never had much of an interest in doing it again.
I've run Greasy Spoon several times.  It's more of a 'large sweeping vistas' sort of trail.  If I recall most of the trail is pretty easy with the Diamondback Gulch portion being the most fun. I'd recommend it for it's scenic value alone.

Running Broken Arrow and Greasy Spoon, with a lunch stuck in there somewhere is a good full day when you add the 1.5 hour trip to/from Phoenix.
Greasy Spoon is a good one to run last as it exits out towards Cottonwood, which is a good place to air back up.
There used to be a gas station with free air, which pumped pretty fast.  Last time I came through there, I either couldn't find it or they had converted to the crappy $0.25 pump.

Great trip! And... I am posting pictures! You should be able to see all the pictures I took in my shared Google Drive folder. I'll keep it there for a while, so get the pictures you love. I did take about a thousand sky pictures, so enjoy that too.

Oh, and there is the group picture, both of the trucks and us (mostly) so I thought that was pretty neat, that doesn't usually happen.
