I can't go but that's a fun run. We went across Schultz Pass on one of the first cinders events, and even though it was raining cats and dogs, it was beautiful there! Lockett Meadow is really nice too. Have fun!

Hi, Mike,
This is dougnsue, we are new to the group and to 4wheeling. We are friends with Ob1Jeeper & Ladybug w/ RV [Steve and Karen]. Have not been to where you are going but would love to join your adventure Friday morning. We live in Prescott, an easy 2 hr drive north. I have a stock 2000 Grand Cherokee, with new Cooper Adventurer A/T tires. Not knowing the route you are taking out of Flag to Mt Elden or to Locklet Meadows, you'll need to determine if my Jeep can handle the route/terrain.
Thanks, Doug

As long as it's dry, your vehicle will be fine. This is a very easy run. Should I add you to the list?

Mike

Hi Mike, or Eugene, I'm not very good at using the portal you folk use, so please bear with me while I learn.

I would have loved to meet you at the Shell station in Flag and follow your groups' tracks for the day. However, I picked up a detail late yesterday for Thursday. And that will not allow me enough time to do a final sort of our camping gear for Friday. We haven't camped in a few years and after doing some research online about car camping we fought ourselves ill-prepared for this trip.

We have heard nothing but good things about the people in your group. We are look forward to meeting new people and learning more about 4-wheeling.

Probably by the next trip, in October, I'll be ready to go.

Doug n Sue
