Title: Sheep's Bridge - October 2nd
Post by: AZ-Ted on September 04, 2010, 08:36:55 AM
Now that the weather will be cooling off, I'm going to head over to the Sheep's Bridge on the Verde River.  You can get there 3 different ways:

1.  East side of Table Mesa (FR41) east to FR24 north to FR269 east to Sheep's Bridge.
2.  Cave Creek Road to FR24 to FR269 to Sheep's Bridge
3.  I-17 North to Bloody Basin Road (FR269) east to Sheep's Bridge

With the exception of the 1st riverbed crossing (which was washed out back in Feb), option one is totaly doable for 2WD vehicles without any assistance and minimal tire spin.  Options 2 and 3 are totally doable for 2WD vehicles.

My preferred route is option 1 because it is the most scenic, and there are some optional obstacles along the way for the 4x4 guys (although nothing too challenging).

So, who is up for this run?    EDIT:  Run is October 2nd.

EDIT2:  We are meeting at Table Mesa Rd and I-17 (on the east side of the freeway) at 9:00AM.  We will air down, and roll out by 9:30 at the latest.

Here is a pic from the last time AZXC went to Sheep's Bridge.  It was July 2008, and the temp was 115F that day:

The 2nd works perfect for me.  Wifey will be out and about with the baby and her friends.  I may or may not have the kiddo. Looking forward to this little trip.

cool.  at least we'll have 3 trucks out there.  I've also posted up on thenewX, NOR, and TitanTalk.  Hopefully we can get a good group of Nissans out there.

The local Land Rover club is running from FR24 to FR41, so we may get to see some built Land Rovers out there.

Well, I told everyone on the other boards to meet at Table Mesa and I-17 (on the east side of the freeway) at 9:00am.  We will air down, and roll out by 9:30 at the latest.

I had a great time on the run.  In all, we had 11 trucks!  It was good to finally meet some of the Titan guys (from TitanTalk.com).  Also, we met up with the Land Rover club (they were running from Cave Creek to Table Mesa).

It was a relatively damage free day, except for one of the Titan's front swaybar, and my radiator (developed an active leak).  I'm sorry for having to bug out at the end of the day, but my coolant temp was rising fast.  I made it to Cave Creek and Tatum before I had to pull over to cool it down (and add more coolant).  Hopefully this is covered under the extended warranty.

I forgot my camera, but I was able to snap a picture of all the trucks with my cell phone camera:
