April Xcursion - April 24th - Wickenburg Mountains
« on: March 25, 2010, 03:14:28 PM »
LATEST INFO: Lets meet at Cracker Barrel off of Glendale and Loop 101 for quick coffee and/or breakfast at about 7am and roll out at 8am. All the West-West siders can meet us along the way on Grand Ave. Bring stuff for lunch.

Open thread to vote on poll.

So, we need to move fast!!! What do you guys wanna do for April Xcursion!!!

I took the top results from both the Future Activities Poll and Future Xcursions Poll and created the poll above.

I have some emails out there for some volunteer ideas, so lets see what they say. I'll let you all know if/as they respond. So if the vote comes back as Volunteer being the highest, then hopefully we can line something up. More on this later.

And if you guys want to do Ghost Towns... you know I'll show you guys a good time  ;)

Poll closes quick! You've got 14 days, closes on April 8th, highest vote wins.

Ghost towns do sound like fun!

I will for sure be able to make this one. I missed the last one because I had to work the Air Show all weekend long!

I voted for Ghost Towns because it's close to me and I don't have offroad wheels/tires yet!

You can change your vote??  ??? That's news to me, lol! I'll have to fix that for next time.  ;) Or maybe not.  ;)

And you see there are 15 votes... does that mean that 15 people are going?? I'd be surprised.  ;)

Good ghost town site.  I went out to Agua Caliente a couple years ago.

Ghost towns it is! Wickenburg Mountains Trail.

Lets meet at Cracker Barrel off of Glendale and Loop 101 for quick coffee and/or breakfast at about 7am and roll out at 8am. All the West-West siders can meet us along the way on Grand Ave. Bring stuff for lunch.

Load up your GPS's with caches along the trail and we'll check them out too. (BTW, There is a cache in the parking lot of Cracker Barrel).

If I don't have your cell number for texting yet, please PM it to me incase there are any last minute changes.

I have played a lot up in this area, though I have not done this trial yet. This is a very popular trial and a Google search will give ya a lot of info... lots of trial pics out there.

Here is a thread on the trail from the VJC back in 2006 with pics http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/showthread.php?t=17760

Here is another write up on it: http://jwheadedwest.blogspot.com/2010/02/snow-covered-view-from-mountain-top-at.html

Looks like some cool scenery but a few sites say 4-wheel is a must deeper into the trail...  fail... oh well, catch the next one.

This will be my first trip with the club. Could any tell me if extra fuel is needed?   I sure there is not a Am Pm market on every hill top!

Plus any gear that might br recommened by any of you folks that has been on this run?  I really do not know what to expect?

Remember where I am from (Fl) a over pass is consider a hill!

PS:   Where the beach and local surf shop (Ron Jon's Coco Beach) ???
