Have a couple questions.  Is the trail where we will be easy navigated by a 2 wheel drive no lift X ?  And is this a kid friendly ish event ? I think my 5 year old son would have a blast camping and being out there.

Start Camp and End Camp as well as certain portions of the route are easily doable in a stock 2WD.  That being said, there are spots along the route where 4x4 is preferable - especially if there has been any rain in the area (excessive mud).  It is possible to volunteer at the SAG stops - these are typically close to the road (SR 180) and are easily reachable in 2WD.  People have brought their kids in the past - anything from toddlers on up.  Friday night is pretty laid back, but Saturday night - especially around the campfire - where people are drinking, smoking, and carrying on might be where the little ones will hear some language they may or may not be used to hearing.

Here are some helpful things that I've learned over the years of attending this event:


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.

I'm definitely in for this! I am 2wd so if rain a factor I'll have to stick near the Hwy but I'm pretty confident in my driving if 4wd isn't a must.. plus I've lived here all my life and never den the GC.

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."
