Title: POLL : February Xcursion (Tucson or Join the SCCX Trip)
Post by: 11Pro4X on November 04, 2011, 11:24:47 AM
Ok we have a couple options for Feb:


Let me know what you guys are thinking.  I hear that the RattleSnake Canyon run is pretty epic!

Depending on who comes, we could attempt to defeat Copper Canyon... Haha. Lots of little trails up Redington Pass, Buehman Canyon, Chiva Falls, Chimney Rock. Oracle Control road will be closed, but don't wanna camp @ 8,000+ ft elevation in February anyway.. Brrrr.

What's Copper Canyon? Chivo Falls is a good one, but some folks here have no-so-fond memories of that trail.

Tim, Copper Creek I meant to say, just east of Mammoth, AZ. First part is tame. Bumpy and scenic. Heads up to an old mining area with lots of side trails. Lots of places for you to do some crawling! Road splits off and you can loop back to Mammoth, head up the side trails, or try to make it to the Castle. That part is rated a 7 unknown to me and Marcin when we tried it when he was stock and before I had my spacer lift... We got a little ways in, but bangin frame and skids. Pretty fun trail though, and I STILL want to see the Castle! Dangit!!!

Look at Marcin and his stock truck! I think this was only like a month or two after you bought it?

Ah of course! Mammoth. My circle of crawlers just refers to that area as Mammoth. There are 'trails' called portal to hell, last crusade, and 7 sisters. Always wante to see those trails, but parts are way outta my league unless another crawler/buggy is with.

I'll be there though and will no doubt give it the ol college try!!!!

Ok here is an idea for Feb, that I will throw out there.  The SCCX guys are planning a Rattlesnake Canyon run 2nd or 3rd week in Feb, would anyone be interested in attending this with those guys.  I hear this is a run not to pass up!

How far of a drive is that from Phoenix?
Title: Re: POLL : February Trips (Tucson or Join the SCCX Trip)
Post by: 11Pro4X on December 17, 2011, 03:23:03 PM
About 6 hours.

EDIT: Mapquested it from my house to their meeting location its 362 miles and 5 hours and 34 min.

Interested in the joint run with SCCX.  The 3rd week in Feb would work better for me, but I could probably do either weekend.

Really only 2 votes?  Guess everyone is indifferent and will be coming out to CA for that run then!

I would love to make the Cali trip, but it's a bit far. I say those that can make the Cali trip to go ahead, and then if others still want to head south then we can hit a trail or two for the day down here.

Rattlesnake Canyon is set for Feb 11, 2012.  We are currently tied for either a Tucson Run in Feb or the joint SCCX Run. 

BTW Feb 14 I'll be spending with T-Ray.

What's everyone's thoughts on this since we are tied.  Feb 11 is the SCCX Run, and then the weekend of Feb 25 we do a camping trip down in the Tucson Area?  This will also allow folks with a 2wd to join us for camping.   

Post up comments and suggestions.
