Default Night Run! Sat Aug 17, 2019 Log Corral or Sunflower Group Choice 4x4 Mod +

Who's down for Saturday, August 17 for a night run on the next full moon?

Suggesting Log Corral to the saddle and back or Sunflower Mine Loop, but leaving it to the group. Vote in the poll and sign up!

Log Corral Trail: Rated Moderate + due to the rock garden in the canyon. Big waterfall is by-passable now. The rest of the trail is easy up and over the saddle and on down to the lake. Just there a couple weeks ago, and the trees and bushes were nicely trimmed.

Sunflower Mine Loop: Rated Difficult due to a variety of challenges: rock crawl in the creek, long climb out of creek, areas with moguls, short sections of shelf roads. The trail is very scenic as it winds back into a canyon, and offers neat views of the highway at night.

Meet-up: Saturday, August 17, 2019 @ 6:00 PM at the Baja gas station (Chevron) on Hwy 87 and Fort McDowell Rd: Map link here...

Note: You may want to get gas first someplace else cheaper!
These trails recommended for experienced 4x4 enthusiasts.

Vehicle Minimums:
  • All vehicles are required to meet state legal requirements, (i.e.: current registration and insurance)
  • Have functional seat-belts for each occupant
  • Must have suitable recovery points front and rear
  • Each vehicle must have a CB Radio in good working order
  • High-clearance 4x4's with low-range
  • 33"+ aggressive all-terrain or mud-terrain tires
  • Select-able or constant lockers front and rear OR at least limited-slip rear axle

Vehicle Recommendations: Skid plates on important areas such as transfer-case & gas-tank, rock-rails, aftermarket differential covers, high-clearance metal bumpers, winch, trimmed wheel wells, low axle gearing, upgraded axle shafts, 4:1 transfer case, 35"+ tires, roll-cage.

CB Channel: 4
