I'm definitely interested in the kick off run. I'm only 2x4 without a locker though. I'd like to be able to tag along but, I don't want to try and push my rig through something it can't handle. I have 2.5" lift radflos, spc ucas already installed. So height restrictions shouldn't be a problem. Can we find some middle ground?

Some cool 2WD friendly trails with a camp would be:

Bloody Basin to 7 Springs or reverse with a camp at Tangle Creek. 4WD seekers can loop back through Sheeps Bridge 2WD can loop back through 7 springs.

Schnebly Hill to the I-17 camp in the middle at the top of Schnebly Hill

Florence Kelvin HW loop to Cochran and Back Out, possible overnight camp near Cochran, and possibility to cross and do the Coke Ovens if the river is low at night or afternoon. 2WD Stay at base camp or ride along for the afternoon run, with other 2WD trail possibilities near by.

Devils Canyon/Hackberry Creek/ Crater tanks, with 5 mile death hike (not kid or dog friendly) amazing hike and views semi improved camp grounds at Oak Flats area. Other possible 4x4 trails nearby for the adventurers.

Lynx Lake area base camp at dispersed camp site, 2WD friendly Bannie Mine Rd. Day Run loop

Mt. Lemon mountain cruise, possible camp on the mountain all 2WD



Lynx Lake just below is Lynx creek if anybody has ever gone gold panning good place to practice all just south of Prescott.

I like the Table Mesa idea, or Four Peaks area works as well.  I like the camp idea, but Mt. Lemon this time of year, too cold for me.

If no consideration of the Desoto mine trail is being given, I say this is the second best option-
"Bloody Basin to 7 Springs or reverse with a camp at Tangle Creek. 4WD seekers can loop back through Sheeps Bridge"

Table Mesa! Loved it there earlier this year, dying to go again.

I love the idea of setting up a base camp at the end of the trail if possible so we can have a big camp cookout.

What's the Date for this run?  If it's Jan 2nd, I could be talked into bringing the X out to AZ in 2 weeks and wheeling before I head back to Raleigh, NC...
