OCT 16 & 17: Camp Verde To Mogollon Rim Overland Trip

Recommended Posts

Alrighty gang we are a few days away and I am looking forward to this weekend.  Weather looks to be nice all around so that's a bonus. If you are unable to make it please let me know. If you are on standby and can make it let me know as well, we should be able to figure it out. 

 

I will bring a couple of bundles of firewood just in case we need or want that in addition to @Trail Toy's propane fire ring.

 

Full details are on the original post. However,here are some friendly reminders and helpful information:

 

Meetup and Departure

**Please arrive fueled up and ready**(There is a Circle K down the street on the way in and a Maverick gas station across the street)

When: October 16th @ 8:00 A.M, departing no later than 8:30 A.M.

Where: Camp Verde Bashas'  Parking Lot (link) I will be there somewhere out of the way of shoppers.

               650 Finnie Flat Rd, Camp Verde, AZ 86322

 

Other Important Details

  • Bring 2 lunches, 1 dinner, 1 breakfast, snacks etc..
  • Adult beverages at camp are more than welcome. Absolutely no drinking & driving.
  • MORE water than you need
  • Camping (PRIMITIVE)
    • We'll camp at high elevation. Please bring appropriate clothing and bedding.
  • Bring your GMRS or HAM radio(s). 
  • Recovery gear, first aid kit, fire extinguisher

  • Consider extra fuel- There is a gas station in Happy Jack if needed. It would be approx 20 mile round trip there and back if we need to venture down.

 

Looking forward to seeing you guys and meeting the new members!!

We have about 99% of everything packed and ready to go.  Just a couple/few things to pack in the morning and then we hit the road for our first overlanding trip! 😎

Got home a few mins ago, 1 hour 10 minutes later than normal as there was a semi truck fire on the I-17, so much fun sitting in the I-17 parking lot for over an hour... 🙄

 

Great trip, nice to see new faces and familiar ones, thanks again for putting this together Marty! 😎

Made it home myself with out issues. Finished unloading the TJ an hour ago.  I took the Leaf Blower and blew out the interior!  The dust was ridiculous!

Us older rigs didn't come with the luxury of Cabin Filters. Anyway,well worth it. I had a blast of a weekend and wanted to thank everyone for having me and Louie along.

Another great weekend with great folks and great views.  Thanks everyone for putting up with Louie. Hes all Bark and no bite but his under bite can be little intimidating :)   

  Really appreciate @shellback91 for all the pre-work putting the trip together. Still trying to learn how to use my Nav to pre-plan myself but I'm sure it takes alot of work putting the file together. Anyway, made for a relaxed weekend on my part just following his lead without a care in world.  Will be on the look out for more over night trips in the future.   Was nice to meet you @cullen McCarthy, heck of a nice rig you got going for you. With 35's it should be unstoppable. @MyNr1, glad we were able to get the sway bar issue resolved. Like Cullen, I was more worried about your drive home on Highway 87 more then anything.

As always, great hanging out with @Trail Toy & @Large_Marge. Apologize for not taking part in the Apples and caramel around the camp fire but to be honest, was completely exhausted and the two beers did me in. LOL. Anyway, always fun and laughs when hanging out with you two.  

 

Thanks again Everyone!
