1/7/2023: 13th Annual Holiday Party Trail Ride BBQ Gift Exchange Cookie Contest: near Nothing, AZ: 4x4 Easy It's time for Offroad Passport's Annual Holiday party after the Holidays! Join us for an easy trail ride and big time fun with your Offroad Passport friends! We'll be grilling burgers & dogs for a potluck lunch, plus there's the infamous cut-throat white elephant gift game, kids gift exchange, and the annual cookie contest (and judging, yummy)! We're returning to Nothing, AZ again this year, with an easy desert trail ride to see some neat mining ruins before the party starts! Meet-up: 9:30 AM at Nothing, AZ (an hour north-west of Wickenburg). Map link here... Note there's literally nothing there (just a dirt pull-out), so fuel up & stock up on the way (in Wickenburg for most of you). Trail Info: Easy 4x4 trail with a couple small obstacles (see here for more info...). A high clearance street-legal 4x4 is required. We'll run the trail to visit some mining ruins and then head back out closer to Nothing for the actual party. We should be airing up back at Nothing by mid-afternoon. Other Important Info: Sorry, No Pets! With the large group, mingling, food, fire, grilling, and eating, this event is not suitable for pets.
