I know it was discussed in a previous member meeting. I will bring it up next time I talk to AVI, which will probably be on the 29th.

Hey Marshall, I am in!!!  I will be at Start Camp on Friday night.

For those of you that don't know, the "Fat Tire" run is a 65-mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon that benefits the Marine League Chariites (Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).  AZXC members have provided the vehicle support on the course for many years.  If a rider is injured and/or cannot continue, we will shuttle them and their bike to the next stop on the course.

The event begins on Saturday morning, and it lasts most of the day.  At night, the folks from Marine League Charities cook up a fajita dinner, and Fat Tire Beer supplies the refreshments.  Typically, we head up on Friday night camp out, volunteer on Saturday, camp out Saturday night, and head back home on Sunday.

Some more information about the bike ride can be had at:  www.flag2gc.com

This is copied in from one of the prior year's events.  All the same directions apply this year.  From Stone:

"DIRECTIONS FOR FIRST TIMERS

Fill up your GAS TANK in Flagstaff

Directions to Start Camp

HWY 180 North (NW) out of Flagstaff. It's about 7 miles to the turn off on your left (FR 222).

It is just after a long straight portion of road as you pass Fort Valley and the last of the houses and just past a street that is Bader on the left and Roundtree on the right.

If you pass FR 151 on your right you went to far.

You should also see a bright yellow sign with red letters that say Toys For Tots etc. at FR 222. Or you can look on a map for HWY 180 and 222. There is a sign post there that will have glow sticks on it from dusk to whenever.

So it's like a mile a so down FR 222 and there is camp.

If you get there after sundown PLEASE BE QUIET. The party is the next night.


End camp directions are :

Hwy 180 to Hwy 64, North (right) on 64 for about 22.5 miles.

Right on FR 302 There is a "scenic view" sign right before the turnoff.

Fr 302 about 9 miles to a fork with 301A

Right on 301A 1-1.5 miles to camp.



YOU WILL NEED

Dinner Friday night.

Saturday Breakfast and lunch, water etc. keep in mind we'll be out on the trail at lunchtime.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember that you are there solely to assist riders. DO NOT DRIVE your truck when there are riders present, pull over and wait AND DON'T TAILGATE riders."

To volunteer, just post up on this thread that you will be attending.

I've made this trip quite a few times, and some things I have learned over time: 

1.  Bring some sort of shade screen:  an EZ Up, a big umbrella, or a tarp will work well.  Some of the check points are out in the high desert, and there is not much shade around. 

2.  Bring plenty of water.  I actually bring an extra case of bottled water just in case the riders need some.

3.  Bring sun screen.  You will be in the high desert, and will get sunburned easily.

4.  Bring a first aid kit.  It doesn't have to be a giant kit.  In the past, I have given the riders band-aids and aspirin.

5.  Bring a jacket and hat.  The weather is beautiful during the day (70s-80s), but at night, it can get into the 40s and even 30s.

6.  If you bring dogs, they must be leashed at all times when they are out of the truck.

We usually like to roll with at least 10-12 vehicles, but the more the better.  Anyone can volunteer.  We've had 2WDs with us on this run.  You would only need 4x4 if it is muddy.  This is an easy trail ride on forest service roads.  Any stock 4x4, or high clearance 2WD will not have an issue.  If it is muddy, the 2WDs might have to get strapped.

Uhhh, as far as "anyone can volunteer.". This is (and has been) SWANKy/AZXC for 12+ years, with exceptions made for X owners who didn't have their X' at the time  ;). Stone will say, but I'd recommend at this time not just inviting everyone you know with a truck to come along.
