  • jcm45: Hi everyone, I just joined up here and am looking for some advice. Anyone have a shop they recommend for their Xterra? I just purchased an 02 and discovered the seller managed to cover up a thrown rod so likely need a new engine. I've called a few shops and most seem to not be overly familiar with them. I don't want someone inexperienced potentially doing something wrong or milking the labor. Can anyone recommend a shop that's had this done before?

FLAG2GC 2019 - Are you ready!? 8/2-8/4
« on: October 14, 2018, 08:13:57 AM »
Just a couple weeks now! Who is coming?!

This years event we will need more volunteers! We usually need a minimum of 10 rigs to cover the first 10 checkpoints, but at 2018 we needed many more. We will have to cover checkpoints from start to finish. There will be an email that goes out to capture everyone's contact info and get your committent so we can cover checkpoints ahead of time as best as we can.

If you would like to add yourself to the Flag2GC Volunteer email list, you can do so at this link (This list is maintained by the Volunteer Coordinator on the Flag2GC committee and not by AZXC, so you will get emails regarding the coordination of all volunteers.)
----->Click here to add yourself to the email list. Select "AZXC Group Support Team" if you have questions about other roles please PM Pinchel. <------

Last year, AZXC helped raise funds for Randy Miller. We raised less than $500, the previous year was just over $1000. Please consider pooling any donations you plan to make with ours. It will increase our chances of winning swag which we plan to raffle off every year to those who donated. Even if you do not attend or are able to be on the trail we can use your help. We'll add the donate buttons and links when the time comes.

When:  Aug 2nd - Aug 4th
Where:  Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  61 mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp". !!! Start Camp for us will be somewhere different than the riders, location posted below. !!!

On Saturday, we are up early, before the riders start which is 7am, and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail. We are on parked on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks, shade). On Saturday, late afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp"). At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer. After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre! On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board). That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of high clearance or 4wd vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

Here is a link to the Flagstaff2GC event website:  http://flag2gc.com/

Let's make this an even greater year for Nissans at this event!

Undecided:

Not Attending:

Start Camp location for us will be here, unless the event changes maps. -> https://goo.gl/maps/L4Z2d7QooqL2 , it is near last years 1st checkpoint. Here are the coordinates - (35.395493, -111.756143). It is not far from the 180. The actual camp site might be exact depending on the trees, but we'll be on the left side of the road and before the cattle gate. So if you go over the cattle gate, you missed our camp.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, we will be handing out maps and sharing pertinent info. We will need to be ready to roll pretty early as the riders start riding at 7am and they are much much closer to the checkpoints, which gives us less lag time to get there. We all need to be at designated checkpoints before the riders get there. And for you noobs, there are riders that can beat us to checkpoints.


Otherwise, we're there to ensure the safety of the riders so we'll need to cover the checkpoints. If you know anyone who has a high clearance vehicle or 4wd invite the to come along with you.

I added a link for those who can make a committment now for 2019, this will help us make sure we get enough shirts and we have everyone's contact info for the Flag2GC committee. Again, if you would like to help and would be interested in volunteering for something other than the trail support please let me know. There are lots of ways you can help.

Event is coming up soon! We need volunteers still to commit to be being there and helping us cover over 12 locations on the trail, not including needs for SAG 2 and SAG 3. So if you know someone with a pickup truck and they enjoy hanging out in the high desert or forest let us know.

We got an easy spot for them, unless it rains hard, then there may be mud so 4WD is important. However, we can have 2WD on parts of the trail so invite them too!

Especially for the guy that enjoys the after-party a little too enthusiastically, drops English and starts speaking German :)
