Title: Payette Draw 7/31/16
Post by: Thupertrooper (Victor) on July 26, 2016, 02:10:34 PM
Alright so we have a former AZ wheeler that moved to Cali visiting and wants to wheel his SAS 1st Gen Xterra at Pyeatt Draw and wanted to Invite you guys to join.

I love Payson so Im in. But the plan is to meet up Sunday the 31st early in the morning and meet up with the campers to start the Payette Draw trail.

Camping will still be going on Saturday night near the trailhead.

As of now we have 2 rigs. Hopefully we can get some more.

Meet up
Home depot in Payson 10am

Going

Im down if its not to crazy, I might be riding solo on this trip and heading back the same night too.

If enough AZXC people want to stay and camp I will be down for the same. I can cook dinner, bring community food gear etc.

Im going to play it by ear for now before I can commit.

As it gets closer to the weekend i will make sure to have all the info listed. It was short notice but good excuse to escape to Payson. As for the camping if i finish wrenching on the gfs car in the morning i might stay the night.

YouTube videos are pretty extreme - having almost rolled my rig last weekend, I'm a little shy.  There are bunny bypass trails out there, right?

So there I am, cruising down the hill back to the Valley of the Sun, and I hear a metallic clank, felt the impact, and my traction control light comes on.  WTF?  Still have power, still have steering.  I pull over at the brake check station a mile after the noise, get out, look under the hood like I know what I'm doing, look under the front, and discover I lost a sway bar mounting bolt and another was half way out :(

O'Reilly in Fountain Hills didn't have one, neither does Home Depot.  Got a lead that Copper State Nut & Bolt will have it.

As for the Cali guys i dont think they are members.
