  1. Great! Looking forward to getting out before it gets hot. I am not aware of a FB page but it doesn't matter since I don't have a FB account!

    Bulldog.

  3. I am thinking around 9:30am at the Usery Pass Trail Head. A permit is required, it's $6, lasts 6 months and is specific to the Bulldog Canyon area: https://www.recreation.gov/vehiclepermits/3332401 Bring something for lunch. We'll stop for about an hour for lunch Technical Rating: 2.5 REQUIREMENTS: A stock clearance 4x4 with a low range transfer case option, suitable front OR rear recovery point (trailer hitch is fine), stock tires. Rigs & drivers must meet all the typical state/federal legal requirements for on-highway vehicles (license, insurance, registration, seat belts, lights, etc.) $6 permit per vehicle. Each OPERATOR must have a permit, families can share a permit This is a great trail for people with little to no experience. Everyone must stay on the designated trails Radios: Not required. Ham on 462.700, CB or FRS all work for me. Trail finding is easy and we'll keep you in our mirrors. I have spare radios too. Itinerary: Meet up time will be 9:30am at fr3554 trail head off of Usery Pass. We'll air down (optional) and chat a bit. We'll stop at least twice to enjoy the view and chat. I'll make some cheese crisps for anyone interested in a snack when we stop for lunch. I would like to try to get to Wolverine or perhaps even Cottonwood (Apache Trail exit). We will see how it goes. Bulldog has a lot of options. Folks can either head out trail 10 or head to the wolverine/cottonwood exits. When we get to Wolverine we can decide to continue to Cottonwood depending on time and how things are going. We will stop at the watershed building for lunch. This is not the normal spot, It's closer to the Wolverine exit. Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma. WILL E 1983 Full Size Jeep Cherokee Serenity 2012 Wranger
  4. Sometimes that Coleman color pallet goes well with the evening. And there is a satisfying 'whoosh' sound they make when turned up.
  5. I just ordered a 4 pack for $18.87 plus tax. That's pretty 'cheap'.
  6. Too funny, I had to read it three times before I got it!
  7. That's a bummer! It's going to be nice out today. I'll post up another one in a couple of weeks. Or PM me and we can figure out a date and then post up.
  8. Excellent! I will see you at the trail head. It's between mile markers 22 and 23 on Usery Pass. Big dirt area, hard to miss.
  9. Going to give it another try! Hopefully I won't have to cancel due to foot issues! Yeah, it's going to be nice out! I would like to make it to Wolverine or Apache Trail. But if someone doesn't have time they can exit early at Bush.

  10. Going to do the 'short' run. Enter Usary pass (3554) and exit Bush Hwy. A permit is required, it's $6, lasts 6 months and is specific to the Bulldog Canyon area: https://www.recreation.gov/vehiclepermits/3332401 Technical Rating: 2.0 (We got a Subaru Forrester through this part of the trail) REQUIREMENTS: A stock clearance 4x4 with a low range transfer case option, suitable front OR rear recovery point (trailer hitch is fine), stock tires.

If the weather is clear we will get a fantastic view of snow covered 4 peaks. Anyone that wants to play on the play hils will have plenty of time. When we get to Trail 10 we will turn left and head out to the Bush Hwy We should be back on the road by 1pm. Bring the kids, the pets, Grandma. It's a non-club event so if you have a buddy that wants to join that's fine too! 3554 trail head is on Usary pass road between mile markers 22 and 23. : https://www.google.com/maps/place/West+Gate+to+Bulldog+Canyon+OHV+Area/@33.5026963,-111.6133648,15.5z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x872bbb81761e8ac7:0xc24136abcb51c998!2sUsery+Pass+Rd,+Mesa,+AZ+85207!3b1!8m2!3d33.5240835!4d-111.61566!3m4!1s0x872bbba068b5c437:0xe103b51b92f8ed81!8m2!3d33.5047988!4d-111.6172384
  11. Please add me to the roster. Also, folks traveling from or past Gold Canyon should plan a little extra time because of the Renaissance festival.
  12. Morning! My buddy cancelled on me so I am a no go. Keep an eye open though, I post this run a lot!
  13. I am going to hit Bulldog tomorrow (Sunday). Might just do a short run but if the weather is nice go out to Wolverine or beyond. Let me know if anyone wants to join.
  14. I am going to head out Sunday morning with a buddy. Folks are welcome to join. We might just end up doing 3554 and then out to Bush on trail 10. Post up if you are interested and I will update with times/info.
  15. I hate to sound like a broken record. Bulldog canyon is a good place after a rain. Yeah, there are some puddles but no 'mud bogs'. With any luck you can catch a beautiful view of 4 peaks with snow on it.
  16. I can't, foot is still not good enough. Next weekend should be good but it's the Crown King run.
  17. I have run into a bit of a problem with my foot. I may have to bow out of this trip, I should know better by tomorrow.
  18. I normally meet at the trail head. It's between mile marker 22 and 23 on Usary Pass. As you approach there are signs warning to watch out for people crossing.
  19. Okay, I posted up a run for Sunday! The weather should be almost perfect!
  20. Sign-up & details here:
  21. Update: I won't be able to make it on the planned date due to a medical issue (not serious). If I am doing better in the next day or two I will post again for a date soon, hopefully next weekend! A few folks have asked and the weather looks nice. I would like to make it to Wolverine or Apache Trail. But if someone doesn't have time they can exit early at Bush.

  22. I'd rather they bring back that AC vent that used to be under the steering wheel.
  23. Hey! I've run it dozens of times and taken all of the 'legs'. A stock 'off road' Taco will be fine for pretty much any part of this trail with a reasonably skilled driver. We got a Subaru Forrester through 3554 and back out to the Bush exit from trail number 10 (my usual go to run). It wasn't a piece of cake but he made it and probably had more fun than anyone else. I usually sport a modified FSJ Cherokee but have done this trail in a Colorado zr2 with no consequences. We usually enter 3554 off of Usary pass. Some really beautiful views. It ends at trail 10. Left is an easy and short trip out to Bush Hwy, right is a longer ride to 'wolverine'. This part is not technically challenging but a bit bumpier and there is one hill decent that will make you pay attention. As you approach the wolverine exit there is an option to head east on 1356 all the way to the Apache Trail (cottonwood exit) or about half way on 1356 you can go south to the AA PIT. I am not sure what MADDOG has in mind but I am good for most anything.
