  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

Open Discussions / Your VP is Back
« Last post by PitSnipe (Kyle) on Today at 02:29:43 PM »
Hello All,

I am sure some of you heard that I was away for a while. ToTM was my baby and I feel bad that I couldn't keep it going.

I am back now and as your Vice Prez I am committed to getting this club back to being very active again.

On August 20th 2018 at 3:00pm I had a Hemorrhagic stroke. I had a brain bleed on the right side of my brain. The bleed was about the size of a golf ball. I was flown from Banner Del Webb in Sun City to Banner University(Good Sam) in Phoenix. I arrived at the hospital at 8:00pm. By 10:00pm the bleed had stopped. The stroke was caused by a blood pressure of about 250/115. As Drs worked at getting my blood pressure down I was then experiencing the results of the stroke. My speech was slurred and the entire left side of my body was paralyzed.

Doctors explained to me that as my brain healed I would get movement back. This is not something that I was ready for. I am only 36 years old.

After fours days in the ICU I was stable enough to go to a normal floor. After two more days on that floor I was then transported back to Banner Del Webb in Sun City. Once I arrived at Del Webb I was admitted into the Intense Acute Rehab Facility. I spent 18 in rehab learning to use my arm, open my hand, stand, and after a nearly weeks I learned to walk again.

I left the hospital and was headed home on September 14th 2018. My recovery was so advanced that I was able to return to work on September 24th 2018.

I am able to run now and full use of my left arm and hand. I am still unable to drive. I see my neurologist On October 18th and hope to get the good news that I can drive again. I am currently still going to out patient physical therapy twice a week to work on my balance and strengthen my hips and left leg.

I still battle with sensation issues. I feel nothing on my left side. Literally from my ear to my toes. I am completely numb. I also have left side neglect. My brain does not know that I have a left side. As my brain heals I will regain that back.

I would like to thank Avi, Bethany, Rob, and George for visiting me while I was in each of the hospitals. Your support helped me get through this tough time.

I am beyond excited to get back to wheeling and camping.

Thank you for reading this and if anyone has any questions please ask.

Next year for sure.

Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon / FLAG2GC 2019 - Save the Date! 8/2-8/4
« Last post by pinchel (Rob) on Yesterday at 08:13:57 AM »
Save the date! Who is coming?!

This years event we will need more volunteers! We usually need a minimum of 10 rigs to cover the first 10 checkpoints, but at 2018 we needed many more. We will have to cover checkpoints from start to finish. There will be an email that goes out to capture everyone's contact info and get your committent so we can cover checkpoints ahead of time as best as we can.

Last year, AZXC helped raise funds for Randy Miller. We raised less than $500, the previous year was just over $1000. Please consider pooling any donations you plan to make with ours. It will increase our chances of winning swag which we plan to raffle off every year to those who donated. Even if you do not attend or are able to be on the trail we can use your help. We'll add the donate buttons and links when the time comes.

When:  Aug 2nd - Aug 4th
Where:  Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  61 mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp". !!! Start Camp for us will be somewhere different than the riders, location posted below. !!!

On Saturday, we are up early, before the riders start which is 7am, and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail. We are on parked on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks, shade). On Saturday, late afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp"). At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer. After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre! On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board). That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of high clearance or 4wd vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

Here is a link to the Flagstaff2GC event website:  http://flag2gc.com/

Let's make this an even greater year for Nissans at this event!

Undecided:

Not Attending:

Start Camp location for us will be here, unless the event changes maps. -> https://goo.gl/maps/L4Z2d7QooqL2 , it is near last years 1st checkpoint. Here are the coordinates - (35.395493, -111.756143). It is not far from the 180. The actual camp site might be exact depending on the trees, but we'll be on the left side of the road and before the cattle gate. So if you go over the cattle gate, you missed our camp.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, we will be handing out maps and sharing pertinent info. We will need to be ready to roll pretty early as the riders start riding at 7am and they are much much closer to the checkpoints, which gives us less lag time to get there. We all need to be at designated checkpoints before the riders get there. And for you noobs, there are riders that can beat us to checkpoints.


Otherwise, we're there to ensure the safety of the riders so we'll need to cover the checkpoints. If you know anyone who has a high clearance vehicle or 4wd invite the to come along with you.
