Backway to Crown King - Aug. 29th
« on: August 08, 2015, 10:35:28 PM »
I'll be heading out with a few friends Aug. 29th to do the Crown King run. Haven't done it yet and I've been trying to go for a while but things keep coming up.

If anyone is interested to join, you're more than welcome. Still not 100% on roll out time or meet up.

If there is a gas station at the 1-17 exit we could meet there at a certain time.

I'll post once the details are 100%

I'll join you.  I have done the front way many times but the back way only once and I started from crown king.  Let me know your time and place.

There is a gas station with a McDonald's next to it right east of the 17 at the carefree hwy exit,  that's where we usually meet up when we do a Crown King run.

Perfect, thanks. Im trying to figure out just how early we're going to head up and I'll post a time. Probably meet around 8am at that gas station. but I'll post when I know for certain.

They have graded most of the trail up to the town, so you can go around most obstacles. However, there are still dangerous cliffs and places where you can (as others have) die. Stay alert, it's a long trail especially for noobs. Respect the mountain.

Especially on a Sat!
I wish I could join but will be house sitting :(

I have done that run 3 times so far this year and every time was totally different.   This last time was super rough,  really sandy in spots and a lot of the road had been washed so a lot of rock and boulder navigation.   Super fun still,  wish I could go but can't.  Have fun.

This may work for me. My wife has not done it and was just saying that she wanted to see the town.

We are meeting at the Chevron at I-17 and the 74 at 7:30 and trying to roll out as soon as everyone is there. Hopefully before 7:45 but definitely before 8.

Alright guys. I have some news that we need to figure out.

I work with a Jeeper and he tells me that the Saturday that we are doing this run is also the same day as an anniversary run held by the Jeep guys. I've been told 120+ rigs are attending. First group is leaving the starting point at 6am and then each group leaves in 30 min intervals. So that puts 120+ rigs leaving 30 min apart in groups of less than 10. Last group should leave the starting point at 11am.

Its gonna be a bitch to squeeze in with these guys. And if we do make the trip Crown king is going to be crazy busy. If we left after the last group we could get to CK around late afternoon. That is if the jeeps don't break down on the trail.

So I guess we need to do some recon. Anyone that has an in with other clubs or knows someone in a jeep club. We need info.
