Title: AZXC Crown King Kick off Run February 7th
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on December 15, 2014, 10:00:56 PM
Every year AZXC kicks it off with a run up the backside of Crown King.  This run is always a lot of fun and well attended so make sure to post if you will be able to make it.  This run will take us through a variety of terrain, starting near Lake Pleasant at near sea level, and ending in Crown King at about 6000 ft.  Be prepared for the possibility of snow or rain, making traction challenging during the climb.  This run includes bypasses and can typically be run safely with a stock 4x4.  

Where:  AZXC meets up at the McDonalds Here (https://www.google.com/maps/dir//McDonald's/@33.7959577,-112.1289375,16z/data=!3m1!5s0x872b63c3a6eec0ed:0x7edf0a3ae4304b95!4m8!4m7!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x0:0x1cf69a332e4ce7c!2m2!1d-112.127876!2d33.798945)

When:  Plan on meeting at 8:30 AM, will head out at 9.  

Time:  This run can be done in around 2 hours, plan on 4-6 for a convoy.  

Communication: CB channel 17, FRS channel 1

Hi all, I'm new here, (mods please have mercy).

First a quick intro- my name is Duncan, I am in Prescott, and I'm 17, a junior in HS. I love the outdoors- mountain biking, hiking, exploring, offroading, panning, you name it. I have a bone stock 2005 Nissan Xterra 4X4, which I take on forest roads, development areas, and mud holes. You can find me more actively over at the Facebook group- "Xterra Off Road".

Anyways, I got the e-mail for this trip, and I am very interested and excited about going, however, with the parental unit in control of my life, it makes it very difficult to make the trip solo down HWY69 and I-17 to the McDonalds Meetup Point, in Phoenix. I am not too familiar with the route to the backroad to Crown King, but I think I can come over the mountains via dirt roads from Walker, AZ (just outside of Prescott) and meet you in Crown King. Do you guys know which way is safer for a solo trip? (gray or blue?) and what is your ETA?

Here is a link to my Google Maps image i was referencing: http://imgur.com/uDgetiV (http://imgur.com/uDgetiV)

I'm toying with the idea of forcing my kids to do this with me. I'd really like to meet you all and find someone else to wheel with other than the (don't strangle me for this) FJ club... Yeah, I know... But I got to see an FJ roll over last weekend, so it can be worth it. LOL

Who has a open seat in their rig for me to occupy for this?   Can't off-road the 2wd and risk breaking anything with it being our one dependable good vehicle.

I hit it at around 80 mph. I'll tell you it scared the shit out of me. Just think basically hitting a 8 high curb at 80 it will do some damage.

What a great day it was. Perfect weather and a great turn out. I believe we had 16 rigs. The trip took a little over 5 hours which is what it took last year. We encountered some butt puckering traffic and had some very entertaining radio interference. No break downs is always a plus. Lunch was great as usual and congrats to the giveaway winners. One by one people started leaving CK. Before we knew it only four rigs were left. We made our way back and were flagged down by a woman that was stuck in a wash. The first vehicle didn't want to help (not one our members) and they bailed. It had just become dark and we were all that was left. We followed her back to the site where we found a 2015 Dodge Charger buried in the sand. No tow points made it interesting. We hooked tow straps to the wheels and pulled them right out.
Finally got home at 9pm and was exhausted. It was a great day.
Post up your pics in the pic category. Cant wait to see what your look like.
