Jason,

We would likely be in Phx area around 6 pm if all goes well.

So, I go over to Todd's place this afternoon and I'm greeted by this sight:

I ask him, "Is it gonna be running this weekend?". He just laughed in response... not sure what that meant :duh:

Oh yeah, his other truck also decided to have transmission problems today. Me thinks Todd is having a bona-fide Bad Week... and it's only Tuesday :wall:







































OK, OK, the pic of the engine being pulled from the Jeep is a joke :-p. It IS sitting without a steering box at the moment, and the part about his DD truck having trans issues is true as well...

Yep, not a good week for Todd. All this after each of you gave me grief for not moving off of the Gap for Saturday's trail. You guys aren't even gonna run it!

Alex,
I've been through the Gap starting at Golder Ranch Road here in Tucson and finished in Oracle. Am I to understand that on Feb 20th we'll be meeting at 10:00 A.M. at the Circle K, 2000 W American Ave, in Oracle, AZ. and end up coming out at Golder Ranch Road?
Next, I believe the Crown King event on Feb 21st is canceled. However, the way I read the post is that we will be doing Sunflower Mine on the 21st. in Phoenix. - is that still the plan? I was all about Crown King...anyway I would like to attend that event as well.
Please note: I'll only have 2 FRS radios as my CB is in the shop, I've invited a friend - Tom Owen, and Kenny Williams (LV MY H2) couldn't get the time off to make this trip.
Please let me know if my interpretations about this event are correct? I look forward to seeing you and the gang if everything is still a go.
Thanks,
Tim Sullivan

PMed you. You are correct in all of your assumptions. Looking forward to having you join us.

Hey Alex? How much info do you have regarding the USFS's destruction of the Gap? My roommate just showed me this thread on TTORA:

I've been reading all those threads and that's part of the reason I want to run it this week - before they knock the whole thing down.

FYI, I've been trying to keep the very first post updated for easy reference. We're looking at meeting 9 am Sunday at the Ft. McDowell Chevron, 2 miles north of Shea on Hwy 87 (Beeline).

The initial plan is to run Charouleau Gap on Saturday the 20th and Crown King on Sunday the 21st. If there's interest I can do a Friday OR Monday run to Sedona but those trails max out at six trucks - there's just not room for more.


So no plans for a Monday run? I was thinking about tagging along with someone to see what I've been missing.

No Monday run as there's no one from out of state. I'll have a Sunflower Mine recap soon. It was a full, challenging day.
