  5. Hello Offroad Passport! This year I am working closely with Copperstate 4 Wheelers and Tonto Recreational Alliance to organize the annual 4 Peaks Cleanup. Here is the official word from Chad Chaney at Copperstate 4 Wheelers: Hello everybody. It's Chad from Copperstate 4 Wheelers and I wanted to let you know that this years 5th annual Fourpeaks Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday November 1st. Please come and join the Copperstate 4 wheelers and the Tonto Recreational Alliance (TRAL) to clean up the Fourpeaks & Sugarloaf Mountain areas from 8-430pm. There will be 2 sessions for the cleanup. The first from 8am-12pm with lunch from 12-2pm followed by 2nd session from 2-430pm. Volunteers will receive a raffle ticket for the cleanup session they attend. Volunteers can come for the morning, afternoon, or both cleanup sessions. Must be present to win. Children will also be entered into a special raffle. Copperstate 4 Wheelers will be working closely with TRAL. Contributions to the cleanup are tax deductible. Donations can be made to The Tonto Recreational Alliance who has a 501c3 status. Those donations may be in the form of supplies like contractor trash bags, water, or possibly a raffle item. Sponsors/vendors are encouraged to come out and set up an information booth. To find the cleanup site, travel North on highway 87 to the Fourpeaks turn off, East of highway 87 between mile markers 203 and 204 on forest service road 143. The cleanup will be staged approx 1/2 mile from highway 87 in the Fourpeaks staging area. Please bring lunch, shovels, rakes, gloves, sunscreen, small trailers to help haul trash, pop up canopies, and any other equipment that may be useful. If you any questions, would like to donate to the cleanup or items for our raffle, or you are a vendor or sponsor and have questions, please can contact us at: www.facebook.com/Fourpeakscleanup or 4peakscleanup@gmail.com Thank you for your support and we hope to see you on Nov 1st. Chad Chaney
  6. Hey, The Gilbert Police Department is having their second annual car show on November 1st, 2014. All proceeds go to our local Special Olympic kids. The show last year has about 200 vehicles and yes there were some of our memebers who brought their jeeps and buggies. The expedition trailers were a big hit. The original bat mobile was there and should be back. I am hoping Curly can bring down his caddy. This year we are hoping more off roaders show up so I am throwing this out to you and your friends. You can register online at: www.fiveocarshow.com There will be raffles, auctions, food, and prizes for the best vehicles. There will be an off road category. Also, if anyone has anything they can donate for the raffle please send me a note and we can talk. Last year someone raffled a muncie 4 speed transmission for $600.00. Anything would be great for the kids. If you have any questions, please call me at 480-694-5175

Click here for the full thread... ---------------------------- 4X4 HAM DIGITAL DATA EXPERIMENTAL SESSION #1 The Board at 4x4Ham is investigating establishing a set of standards for the transmission of digital data via amateur radio in support of public service events. The first task before us is to investigate/experiment with several different protocols & software to figure out which methods might be suitable for something like this. Saturday day evening, 13 September will be our first digital data experimentation session. During this session we will work towards the following goals: 1) Have participants download, install, and configure the FLDIGI software suite on their test computer. 2) Have participants download, install, and configure the D-RATS software suite on their test computer. 3) Configure D-RATS to operate with FLDIGI over a simplex channel using the FLDIGI ARQ TCP port. THE PLAN We will meet in the 4x4Ham internet chatroom at 7:30PM MDT/6:30PM AZT/0130 GMT (Sunday) to begin the experimental session. I will lead the session. We will move through a step-by-step install of the target software and configure the two pieces of software to properly interact. Once we have this working for all participants, we will attempt to exercise the configured software to conduct IM chat, email, and file transfer using 40m NVIS HF. If 40m has gone long by the time we get everything configured, we will attempt 80m NVIS, or resort to 2m LOS between as many participants as possible. I expect the formal portion of the session to take between 30-60 minutes, with informal chat & experimentation to follow. Stations wishing to participate can speed up the formal training time by downloading and installing the FLDIGI and D-RATS software suites: FLDIGI: http://www.w1hkj.com/download.html D-RATS: http://www.d-rats.com/releases/36-d-rats-033-released/ Both software suites are cross-platform compatible and work on Windows / MacOS / Linux. ---------------------------- Please click here for complete information on this event or to sign-up...

Click here for the full thread... ---------------------------- This is a late notice run but I wanted to try to get Sedona in at some point this summer and this weekend ended up being open for me. If you love rock crawling, this run is for you. Broken Arrow has man made obstacles at the beginning of the trail to keep street friendly rides out. A stock Wrangler will handle it with no problem. If you can make it over this, you can get through the trail easily. Broken Arrow has a feature called The Steps that some may not want to attempt and can be bypassed but you will need to separate from the group. I am posting the video of last year's run below. The Steps shot is at 7:25 in the video. If you have not run Broken Arrow before, I encourage you to come along. This is a unique off road experience. There are many opportunities to stop, get out for short hikes and enjoy the stunning scenery along this trail. If you have run it, isn't it time to enjoy it again? This run will be a late start. I wanted to time it to see this beautiful trail in the late afternoon and for an opportunity to have dinner at The Oak Creek Brewery and Grill, which all are welcome to join me at after the run. If you wish you can head into downtown Sedona which is a nice place to walk around on a Saturday evening if you aren't in a hurry to get back home. I have posted a video of this trail from a 4x4HAM run a few years ago, courtesy of N7IYT. Meet up for Phoenix people. The 4 Sons gas station, Carefree Highway and I-17 Time: 1pm OR Meet up for Flagstaff people. The end of Morgan Rd, Sedona (the air down spot).

The end of Morgan Rd, Sedona (the air down spot). Paste this into Google Earth for the exact spot. 34.845393575, -111.756613625 Finish Point - Chicken Point Total Mileage - 3.1 miles (round trip) Unpaved Mileage - 2.6 miles Driving Time - 2 hours Elevation Range - 4,200 - 4,600 feet Difficulty Rating - 7 (due to the at times slippery and always steep downhill grade called "the steps". Not for the timid but very fun to navigate.) Scenic Rating - 9 Attractions: Challenging and scenic sand and slickrock trail. Submarine rock and numerous other prominent rock formations. Exceptional views from Chicken Point and all along the trail. Hope to see you there. ---------------------------- Please click here for complete information on this event or to sign-up...
  18. We are attending an event on 8/23 and would like to car camp overnight so we don't have to leave so early in the morning. Looking for info on car camping spot or maybe even tent camping spots close by. Thanks for any input. http://goo.gl/maps/nE2ee
  19. “Not too proud to beg” as James Brown once said. So here’s what’s up. Got me a new truck, an FJC. The truck is quite capable. I’m sure way more than I am. So can you guys show me how it’s done? Seriously, I’m asking to be tucked under someone/s wing and shown how it’s done – the right way. Without damaging the hardware and/or software (me). The hardware is a 2014 FJC with a locker and P265/70R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers (Kamikaze Cruiser). That’s it. A dead stock FJC. I want to keep the machine that way until I learn how to use it as it is. One step at a time. The software is 71 y/o me. My immediate need is to be confident with what I need to learn by 21 October when I’ll be in Sedona for 3 days with lifelong dear friends from California. My good friend is an avid photographer and I want to be able to get him where he needs to be to do his thing. So the “beg” is to tune me up for Sedona. You guys have been there, you know what I need to know. So can anyone give me a hand? Dale
  20. We are re-assessing our choice of Grand Falls visit during the Annual Cinders Event this year. There was some confusion in obtaining the permits required by the Navajo Indian tribe, but that is been settled. However, the cost of the permit has gone from a nominal $5 per person to $12 per person. A thought that keeps occurring to us is that there might not have been any recent rain when we visit, meaning Grand Falls would be dry. There's no guarantee either way. We need a little input from you guys. If you are signed up for the Cinders Annual Event this year: Did you already buy your permit? Do you want to go to Grand Falls (apply for permit and pay $12 per person)? Have you ever been to Grand Falls?
  21. This event is cross-posted from our sister club 4x4 Ham. Note that only the first post from the original thread is shown. Click here for the full thread... ---------------------------- Think it is time we visit Mr Smiley This is fairly simple trail with a couple of rock gardens thrown in for good measure. Going to cap this run to 6 total rigs. Minimum of 33" tires with lift. DIFFICULTY: Generally a 3.5 - 4 (see the Pages Tab for details). This is due to the narrow rocky section through Martin Canyon. Most of the trail is relatively easy with some tight brush and steep hills. The Wells Guide rates it as "Difficult". We will meet in the parking lot behind Jerome Fire Department at 9am and head out around 9:30am. I plan on taking you around the bottom of Mingus Mountain to an old coal oven, then we will back track to the entrance to Martin Canyon. When we get to the lake at the top of the trail we will stop for a snack and then head back to 89a down to Old Cottonwood and stop at Hog Wild for a BBQ lunch. Should be able to use the MMRG repeater for talk in 147.000 + 162.2 Trail Freq will be our normal 147.520 CSQ As normal on trails be sure to pack enough water for you and anyone you bring with you. Be sure your vehicle is up to a little banging around. Be sure you bring tools and recovery equipment (there might be strapping) I am not planning on reconning this run, the rock gardens change with each monsoon storm (yes there is a chance we might get wet) ---------------------------- Please click here for complete information on this event or to sign-up...
