I am partial to the Bloody Basin area and Florence, Im up for an AZXC group sponsored camp/potluck and willing to help out any way I can, but I don't do hot dogs and hamburgers. Im about brats, steak, ribs, chili, BBQ, roasting a pig, goat etc. I enjoy putting in work, to make it happen!

I personally enjoy eating other peoples food and drinking their drinks ;D and sharing my food and drinks!

Atleast we know we wont starve if Chuy is there lol.

First want to narrow down an area that will allow 2wd members to get there but also 4wd for the others to explore.

I suggest doing a kickoff run in the Perkinsville Rd area. There are plenty of options for different types of wheelers, and we can all camp near the riverbank near Perkinsville at the end of the day.

Here are some runs that can be taken from perkinsville:

Perkinsville to Williams: easy, wide-open dirt roads with nothing too challenging. Great for 2WDs, beginners or those that like to "overland".

Haystack loop: a short little trail loop with a few small ditches and rock features. Doable in a stock 4WD X with good driving. Some optional features in the creek and mud holes can be challenging.

Smiley rock trail: moderate. 285s, 4WD, and skids required. Very technical in sections.

Smiley rock creek: very technical. 35s, full skids, and lockers reccomended. Attempt the infamous waterfall section...

Attached is a picture of the proposed camp spot. If you want pictures of the other trails, let me know and I can go out and take some pics.

Only issues I could see being a problem is that Perkinsville is a highly volcanic area, with a lot of ranching going on too. When it rains, it is death mud. By that, I mean my 35" mud tires get clogged and you can drift in 4WD. Depending on the weather, it can range from dusty to super muddy.

No date yet that will be in another poll. This is just to see where you guys would like to wheel/camp. Both 2wd/4wd friendly.

Lets start off with some areas
Prescott
Flagstaff
Payson
Globe

What are some wheeling areas in Globe? That is an awesome place, I have done a few trails there in my Jeep but they were pretty rough. If the Oak Flats camp ground area is still open that would make for a nice group camp/picnic area. I believe they might still have facilities and built in grills. My favorite hiking trail is in the area.
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

I followed 3 forest roads north of sheeps bridge and made it to Childs Campsite but have to cross the Verde River. After the campsite you get to Strawberry. Way too busy to do a run before the kickoff but if its 2wd it would be a nice backroad convoy to a decent campsite. As for the river crossing who knows how deep it is even though there are trails that show where to cross.

I believe the Dugas Rd exit off the I17 will also get you to the same side of the river across from Childs.

I am off both of my jobs that day. Unless my wife has something planned I can join you. 2wd should be able to make that. I would highly doubt a river crossing though.

That is if we can cross the river. Ive been there twice and have seen a crossing. Avi has been there more than me and may know a spot.
