Title: 2012 AZXC Kick Off Run (Sunday Jan 1, 2012)
Post by: 11Pro4X on November 03, 2011, 06:47:02 PM
Since everyone is going to be busy over the next few months with the holidays, I figured we should start putting together our 1st trail run of 2012!

I was thinking we can run Florence Junction (there are a few easier trails out there) for the first run of 2012.

Post up if you are planning on attending!

FYI there will be a sticker designed for this run, and the graphic will be coming shortly!   ;D See Below

Meeting Time : 0930-1000
Place : Basha's Grocery Store Parking lot in GOLD CANYON!  We roll out of there at 1000!

Attending:


Maybe:


Here is the sticker for this run!

I like that, I don't think we've ever done a New Year Run. Sucks it's on a Sunday, but I might be able to attend so put me down as a maybe.

You just gonna meet up after the gate on the Butcher Jones Rd so you don't need the parking permits that you can't buy there anymore?

Meet up at the Chevron across the street from the casino, and then head out.

OK, we'll modify the first post of this thread with the exact location/Time and a map when we close.

Reminds me of the good old days, drink all night and go romping in the morning! Hangover and all! ;D

That's when the best stories are created!   :o

10ish? Isnt that a little late? Not to be a pain, maybe I just like to get up early and get started, I was hoping 8ish but will settle for whatever is decided. Maybe meet in the middle, 9ish, haha.

I'm down for 10am. This time of year a late start isn't a bad thing. The Coves are easy enough to navigate that if someone wants to get there early/leave early, it wouldn't be a big deal.

10am on New Year's Day will be plenty early for a lot of people. ;)

The Coves are out at Saguaro Lake/Butcher Jones Recreation Area. I would guess that we will be out there for 4+ hours depending on how much playing/exploring people wanna do. The nice thing is that it is easy to bail early if needed & head back to the parking lot at Butcher Jones.

I've spent entire days at the Coves expolring each cove and I've spent <2hrs just going out to test new equipment.

Ok so let me say sorry in advance for asking. I dont know if this ok or an insult but my neighbor has a Toyota Tacoma 4x4, I was thinking he could do this run with us, is it ok to ask him? Or no, this is for Xterra or Nissan's only?

Sorry again if I insulted anyone.

AZXC Has always been inclusive to other wheelers, especially if that means you're not going out alone, however in the group shots, try to stay to one side so you can be cropped if needed. :)


So, if I'm reading between the lines correctly, it is ok for him to come along but don't allow him in some pics or at least the group Xterra one.

As Adam said bring your buddy with.  Wheeling events are open to anyone who wants to come along with a member.  The pic thing is what it is when we post up pics to use on the forum, so I am sure you know what we mean.  Everyone is welcome though, and the NON-Xterra folks can see what our truck is about and then maybe go out and buy one!   ;D

Watch for closures out at the Coves and be repectful of them.  I know I don't have to say that to you guys/gals but it is just a reminder.

Heads up:

http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/showthread.php?68042-Butcher-Jones-80-shut-down

Someone may want to go out there to check it out. May consider another location for the kick off run :( I know the Coves area very well & would be happy to ride along on a pre-run.

Maybe 4-Peaks, Sycamore, or Florence Junction would be better??? Florence only has 1-2 trails that I'd be comfortable taking a stock Xterra on (Box Canyon) but it is a good intro trail with some beautiful scenery & an infinite amount of old mining roads to explore. There are good places to shoot or camp out at Florence if people wanted to.

4-Peaks/Sycamore are do not have much in the way of trails or obstacles - mostly just rough dirt roads & some mining roads. Not much of a 4wd experience IMO, but good scenery & places to hang out/have lunch. It is also a little further drive for anyone coming from Tucson (though not too much more than the Coves).

Florence Junction should be the plan.  There are a few trails as T-Ray said so lets move the kick off run to there?  Any objections? 

This will prevent chaos at the coves!

I guess I am out of the loop, what happened? So the forest service closed it down? I don't know the extent of it obviously, but closed completely??? Either way, I will wheel where ever is decided, I just have never done The Coves and it sounded like a goog place and a lot of fun.

The majority of the roads/trails at the Coves have effectively been closed for numerous reasons including: overuse, abuse, accidents, deaths, injury, garbage (human & non-human), fights, alcohol, and other mayhem/misuse of public lands. There is currently no use/travel management plan for the Coves, so the BLM and/or USFS have closed most of it until a use/travel managment plan is implemented.

Thanks T-ray, well that about sums it up, hopefully the USFS gets it figured out and we can get out there soon. It's sad that areas of enjoyement have to be closed because of peoples abuse, the few of us that respect the land and areas and use them correctly are the ones that suffer because of there stupidity, uhhhh! >:(

From what I read on the Jeep board, the FS has closed down some of the play spots and some of the hillclimbs.  It doesn't sound like everything is closed off, but it's not a free for all like it has been in the past.

It would be good if someone could prerun.

Florence Junction it is.  There is a number of trails out there (that are open).  I am working on a meeting spot for everyone to meet before the run.  I am just not to familiar with that side of town, and which place has a big parking lot we can meet at.

Here is the sticker for this run!

We need to decide on the color of this sticker. (I was thinking orange to keep with the AZXC color)  This will be a die-cut sticker!

You guys decide though.  Deadline will be the end of the month for a color choice.

Sticker is only for this run, not every time we go wheeling.  No offense taken, just thought it would be a great idea since we are trying to get the AZXC events going.  I'll still put it on your truck, in the middle of your windshield if I have too haha

The videos you see online are of trails that you won't be driving. I drove my Xterra out there on several trips when all I had was a 2" lift and 31" tires - that's it. If you're EVERnot confit table on a trail or section, it is up to you to bow out. It is your vehicle when the day is over.

Should be fun not stressful to go out and wheel. Have some faith in yourself as a driver, in your vehicle, and in the people planning that the trip will be appropriate for your level. ;-)

Also, the trails planned fairly stock friendly? I did get some 285's but I probably won't have my PRG Basic lift installed in time for the 1st...

Yeah we will run Box Canyon, since we dont have that many rigs.  We can hike up to the Cabin if we want its gonna be a good time.

FYI - most of those pics are NOT from Box Canyon. They are Martinez Cabin (which is closed) and Coke Ovens river crossing. The X with the flat was pluvo and he nicked it on a rock. The white X in the sand was broken because of foolishness & DUI. Box Canyon can be done in any stock 4x4 mid-size SUV without issue.

If you're scared - stay home, but you'll miss out on a great day of friends & exploring.

Ben, the best place for you to meet is at Price Road just north of the McDonald's in Florence on the east side of the highway. No sense driving past that into to Gold Canyon just to drive back to it. There is a big parking area off to the right on Price Rd, I'd suggest just meeting everyone there.

Yeah, I was looking at the map and it's a ways back towards Phx. Price Rd turnoff it is for me! I remember seeing that road on the way to the deployment return camping trip @ Montana Mt last winter.

After reading on thenewX, I felt compelled to write it here:

This run crosses State Trust Land, and a current AZ State Trust Land permit is needed to legally use these trails.  See this link for more information:  http://www.land.state.az.us/programs/natural/recreation_permit.htm (http://www.land.state.az.us/programs/natural/recreation_permit.htm)

AZXC follows all the rules no matter what trails we are on:  State Trust Land, US Forest Service Roads, and BLM lands.  We are in good standing with all those organizations, and we are a Member Club that sponsors TreadLightly!  With this in mind, EVERYONE on this run should have a current AZ State Trust Land permit.

They did say about a week turn around time through the mail so you may get it if it's mailed today or tomorrow. I will be getting mine next week at the office.

A group permit is not something I want to be involved with.  We would be bringing undue attention to our simple run.

There is a bunch more red tape to deal with because this run becomes an "Event" in the eyes of the State of Arizona.  There is a whole bunch of stuff that we have to worry about if we hold an Event on State Trust Land.  It is much easier, and much less red tape to get individual permits.

Telling them when/where/what we are doing is not advisable.  Also, having to get lease holder permission to cross certain lands during our "Event" will not be easy.

IMO one person has created such a to do over this permit stuff, and trying to sabotage this event.  I understand that AZXC abides by the laws.

We as AZXC also state that we are not responsible for members actions.  So if someone goes out there without a permit who are we to stop them.  If we are going to start checking permits, we might as well start checking insurance, registration, credit reports, and for outstanding warrants.  

You wheel at your own risk, getting a permit is advisable, if you chose not to then its your choice.  

ONe person is trying to sabotage any event I try to put on (ie. CANVAZ) or talk crap behind my back for trying to organize an event, or the way I wheel, or other things.

Again that is my opinion of the situation, and when I hear from a number of members they have heard from this individual on facebook and PMs about this issue, get a life!

Sorry rant over!

Marcin, you are reading too much into this.  Someone mentioned that a permit is legally required for the trails we intend to run.  No one said that everyone must have a permit.  But, I definitely said everyone SHOULD have a permit (or a hunting license, if you can prove that you are actually hunting).

The reason I said that everyone SHOULD have a permit is because as a Club, we try to follow all the requirements for legally using the trails.  Of course the Club is not going to make the members actually produce their permits, as the Club is not responsible for it's members.  Each member is responsible for his/her own actions.

I've actually been considering bringing the Titan out on this one.  Haven't read all 10 pages, but what Trails do you guys plan on running, just the Box Canyon loop, or are you planning on hitting the Cabins or Coke Ovens etc?  My Titan is currently sitting on Stock Rubber @ Stock Height, but it has all the other bells & whistles of the OR / Pro-4X Xterra - Locker etc. sits a little taller, but then there's that huge wheelbase to worry about! hmmmmm....

Just Box Canyon. Martinez Cabin trail is closed. Coke Ovens is too long of day & probably too much for some of the more stock rigs. Wheelbase could make it tough in the narrow canyon.... always welcome to come out though even if it's riding along :)

I've wheeled the Canyon loop along with a Stock Hummer H2, I think the Titan Tank should be able to make it through if that thing did.  Although even that monster has a shorter wheelbase than the Titan I think.  I think he had sliders on the H2 maybe to help over some of the rocks.  Really need to get a set on the Titan so I can get her out without doing to much damage.

I usually top off at the Shell Station/McDonald's on the north side of US-60 in Gold Canyon. That's pretty much the last place to fuel/supply up.

Is the Chevron station at Goldfield and the 60 a good place to top off on gas before the trail, or is there a place closer to the trail head?

I usually top off at the Shell Station/McDonald's on the north side of US-60 in Gold Canyon. That's pretty much the last place to fuel/supply up.

I see it now, thanks man!!

Just pre-ran this with Will.  Fairly scenic trail and different lines for everyone's ability!  Will be an excellent time on Sunday.

I'm out.  Severely sprained my right ankle on my ATV this week.  Have to wear a giant boot for the next 4-6 weeks.  Driving left footed is difficult enough on road let alone trying to offroad.

Have an awesome time out there and please take a bunch of pictures.

Well, I'm out.  Just too much going on to make it out.  I will keep an eye out for some other runs in the near future though!

Before dark HAHA.  Then some of the guys air up and we chatted for a while.  Then 3 of us went and aired up and then decided to go to Denny's to eat, yes we were that hungry!

And anytime, there will be more of these runs to come!

We had a great day with everyone. Nice driving by all....no carnage that I saw. I was actually with you guys the entire time-I just engaged full stealth so you couldn't see me. It's something I've done to my Xterra recently but haven't tested. I guess it works ;)
