Title: I'm itching to do a run in Tucson
Post by: remo1991(Brent) on April 22, 2016, 07:34:35 PM
The last one I was on was with Timh and I was so beat and a pussy a had his friend drive my X. So I need one in the Tucson area I'm in town till July. So let me know I'm up for camping what ever I need to help my fix. Oh just to let you know I know no trails in Tucson so someone will need to guide the run.

The best trail lead I've ever had was Timh he is great. I just need him to chime in and I also need to tell him I will run the whole thing with no one taking over. I know my X can do it no problems.

Count me in! i went there a few months ago and was scraping like crazy just getting to the wash, and that was taking the route past the staging area ( by the big cow watering hole, not 3 feathers).

I am thinking of running tucson wash by mammoth (maybe some willow springs exploration also) this sunday or the following weekend.

Super short notice Wednesday is already here :o

I am willing to "Lead" Tucson Wash (at mammoth az) this Sunday 5/15. I have never done it though, have tmobile, and dont have CB...

You need a state land permit. I will be following the Guide to arizona backroads and 4 wheel drive trails route...

For rough details see the below link, I do not think it is not the exact route I will be running though.
http://www.experience-az.com/adventures/4wd/tucsonwash/tucsonwash.html

If anyone wants to join this Sunday I can meet you at the Circle K at mammoth at 10am, and depending on sunlight might do some willow springs road exploration. PM me for my phone number.

Unfortunately I can't do this weekend but I still can do the 22nd is this still on.

I don't recall it being that bad or very long, it may have gotten worse over the last couple of years. I have been with groups that did it with a stock Jeep Rubicon, stock Jeep Cherokee, a stock Ford Sport Trac, stock 90's bronco, stock Tacoma, stock 80 and 100 series Land Cruiser. I know the X has better clearance than a Sport Trac.

Post by: remo1991(Brent) on May 12, 2016, 09:50:09 AM
Oh have no issues I've done it 3 times usually once a year. I just wanted to try a new trail and little less challenging was all. I was being lazy   pic from last year.
Title: Re: I'm itching to do a run in Tucson
Post by: Thupertrooper (Victor) on May 12, 2016, 10:01:21 AM
I just haven't done Chivo Falls so i would still like to go with someone who has but ill be there since Saturday.

Sorry for the late reply, don't check in much these days.

It was toward the end, really the end of the trail by the waterfalls, that crushed granite and super slippery off camber spot I tried to turn around on just took me for a ride down the mountain.

Insurance sucked, I missed the GAP insurance by one month so it was just a payoff and nothing to show for 3 years of payments. (including the prior '03 SC that I traded in for it.)

I was the only one in the vehicle and had no injuries except a small spot on my right arm where I think my cooler or something in it had hit me. SWANkY got me home safe and sound and all I had to pay was fuel money, but the guys were awesome and chipped in so I added to it and gave it to my hero that brought her home. Seatbelt saved my life.

I rarely talk about it, kind of a sore subject. lol

My current X is coming along though, just have to get things done. Currently replacing the headliner and a list of stuff.

Good luck on the Run, I personally don't wish to tempt that trail again, but 4 feathers was a neat area, but could be rather rough.

Sorry Brent i tried to gather some people but people have their own plans and i don't know any trails in Tucson area. :/

Still count me in to do Chiva Falls.

We can still wheel up north if it gets too hot down here.
Was just in Payson and it was only 85 mid day so we still have time.

Maybe a trial exploration trip around the Catalinas, or Mt. Lemon with an overnight camp?
