  2. Rocktoberfest 2019 will be Saturday, Oct. 12 through Tuesday Oct. 15th. Do you have what it takes to handle four days of the toughest trails in Mohave County? We have a whole batch of trails that have never been included in Rocktoberfest or March Madness and they are guaranteed to test modified rigs. Trails TBA, but think of the ones that are rarely run like Pig Iron, Barney's Revenge and Black Inky Spring. Modified vehicles only: Minimum 33-inch tires, high clearance, recovery points, lockers, rocker and body armor. (Runs, dates and times will be posted as pre-runs are completed.) As always with Rocktoberfest, it is a gathering of friends. There are no charges or fees. The only requirements are a capable vehicle and willingness to risk body or mechanical damage (and signing a waiver and modeling release). Sponsored by OffRoadPassport.com, OffRoadDance.com and RAW. Meeting point and time will be posted soon. Either post here in this thread, if you wanna come or accept the invite on RAW.

A 4x4 with *low range* is required. A solid frame-mounted tow point is required (trailer hitch, factory tow hooks, etc.). Airing down is required (if you don't have a compressor to air back up with, many of us do and will lend you some air!).

  7. most of the forests are open again now thanks to the monsoons - so i'm going camping! OPEN TO ANYONE - just reply to this thread to sign-up! please let me know when you might arrive so i can watch for you. When: next weekend - i'll be going up sometime Friday 8/17 and will come home Saturday evening or Sunday morning. feel free to join me whenever. Where: the area is somewhat near Heber, in the Apache Sitgreaves NF Black Mesa district - on the edge of a shallower section of the Mogollon Rim. this is all on forest roads suitable for a 2wd truck or high-clearance SUV. the last part is just a bit too rocky for a car or low riding crossover style SUV. - from Payson, take the AZ-260 East towards Heber. - turn right on FR300 at the sign for Black Canyon Lake. - then... -- follow this map: https://caltopo.com/m/U63R -- or, use these coords: 34.2727, -110.6510 once you are on that final faint road, it's very bumpy so it feels like a long ways. but keep going till you come to the barbed wire fence with a small "tribal boundary" sign on it. look to your left and you'll see a nice large flat area and seldom used fire ring in the tall pines about 100ft from the road. there are some tracks winding their way over to that spot, that's our camp! Other Info: this is dispersed/dry camping (i.e. no facilities). there is room for a couple smaller trailers. this time of year you can almost count on a short rain shower each day, so make sure your tent/shelter is waterproof! i'll go for at least one little hike - there's a nice easy road/trail to walk on that leads to a small pond, neat views, and lots of wildlife. i'm not planning to do any offroad trails myself. there are a few POI's on a forest road loop nearby that's in the Massey book if you're bored just sitting at camp. there's also a small lake within a 20 minute drive on gravel roads. Attending: theksmith Bradywgn71 & Kaspily Lichen MzPriss & mystery date JohnPa (visiting for a bit Saturday)

  15. this an overnight exploratory trip on some easy to moderate dirt tracks east of Globe, AZ. i checked out this area briefly about a month ago and there were several old mine shack ruins and a great scenic canyon overlook. maps indicate possibly more mining stuff to see and an overlook of the main Salt River Canyon. Itinerary: meetup Saturday morning in Globe, head to the trail about an hour away. wheel, stop for lunch, and explore all afternoon. there may be some short hikes to get to mines or scenic areas. setup camp before sunset at a canyon overlook. Sunday pack up camp and hit the trail by 9:00am. there's only a little more trail to explore on the way out so we should be back in Globe by 1pm at the very latest. we'll stop for a lunch if we don't hit pavement before noon. Trail Info: these trails are rated moderate. there were some ruts and mild washouts but overall no rock crawling that i remember. this should be suitable for a stock high-clearance 4x4 trucks/SUVs such as a Tacoma/Wrangler/etc. required: a high-clearance 4x4 with low range. all-terrain or better tires. at least one tow point. all state/federal legal requirements must be met (seat-belts, lights, insurance, etc.). recommended: CB or ham radio. sway bar disconnects, skid plates on important areas, rock rails, oversize aggressive tires, mild lift, low gearing, lockers, etc. Meetup: North-East corner of the Walmart parking lot in Globe, AZ. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/rZ4S1AJhvJM2 Saturday 9/30/2017, please be fueled up and ready to leave at 10:30am! Other Important Info: the trip will be canceled if heavy rains are forecasted or if it rains a ton the Thursday/Friday before. much of the trail is the red-clay type dirt that turns to a horribly evil mud when wet.

A 4x4 with *low range* is required. A solid frame-mounted tow point is required (trailer hitch, factory tow hooks, etc.). Airing down is required (if you don't have a compressor to air back up with, many of us do and will lend you some air!).

  17. I am planning to run trails to some of the overlooks in the Arizona Strip from september, 24th to 29th. It would be a camping trip with a moving camp. The idea is to visit Snap Point, Twin Point, Andrus Point, Muley Point, Whitmore Point and Whitmore Canyon and Parashant and Andrus Canyon. This will be a mostly easy trip, but is rated moderate, because of the exploration character. We try to reach some of the unknown overlooks, where I don´t know, how the road conditions will be. We will leave on september, 24th from St. George, UT and will go down Mainstreet Valley and then camp either at Poverty Mountain or Twin Point. The next days we will run, as far as we come. The biggest problem on this trip is fuel. There is a possibility to get fuel at Bar 10 Ranch, but this has to be arranged in advance. End of the trip would be on friday and we would most likely go out of the Arizona Strip via St. George, UT. If somebody is interested, just post to this thread.

  19. Wyoming Trail Days - August 4-6 Wyoming Trail Days, or WTD, was an idea of some local pre-runner owners to do a ROC Fest style jamboree camp out in the heart of the country. This event is a three day event with a focus on having fun, exploring the sights of the region, and starting an annual event for desert runners of the region. Allowing all types of off road vehicles, from Raptor to Tacoma, to come play as one big community, there are two group runs planned for the event. The rest of the time is for you to go out and explore the mapped trails on your own. The event is focused around camping on BLM land but there are hotels in town 10 miles from camp. There are 2 planned day runs for those who want a adventure run or you can explore 328 miles of mapped offroad trails. For all the details please see the main event sign up page. Sign up on the club site at http://www.raddrives.com/catalog and click on Wyoming Days
  20. Hello everyone, Instead of making a post for each event, I am going to make one post that lists all the events for the Road Adventures Club (Formerly ROC). This way you can subscribe to the thread to get event reminders and see post run reports and images in one spot. This is also to make sure we are a good forum supporter by keeping the post clutter down to a minimum and it allows us to post all the disclaimer stuff in one spot. 2017 Event Dates: --------------------------------------------- March 4-5 – Black Rock Desert / Lovelock Mines April 7-8 – Salton Sea / Ocotillo Wells May 19-20 – Area 51 – Vegas to Vegas June 24-25 – Test and tune / Dirt days July 14-16 – Pony Express – Salt Lake to Carson City August 18-20 – Mammoth Volcanic Trails September 8-10 – Pismo Beach Dunes October 13-15 – ROC Fest – Barstow Events will be posted to this thread on how to sign up. Disclaimer: --------------------------------------------- These are pay your own way events. This means even I, the organizer, pays my own way to attend. Organizing drives is my hobby, and I enjoy organizing and hosting events for fellow enthusiasts. I pay for the website and store system out of my own pocket to make sharing information and registering easier on everyone. Expectations of participants. --------------------------------------------- Our trail runs are planned around having fun, seeing sites, and traveling specific amounts of mileage per day / event. This means you, the participant, are aware of the miles needing to be covered per day and that you are expected to cover these miles in a reasonable time frame. Our group is NOT a "fly as fast as you can" group, but at the same time we are not a crawler group. We enjoy off roading with all types of trucks/SUVs , therefore the routes and daily mileage requirements are selected with non-modified 4X4 vehicles in mind. By signing up, you understand we ask that when the trail conditions allow, you drive at a safe pace that allows you to cover the terrain / distance as expected by the group. Recommended gear ----------------------------------- Boefang U5R Hand Held VHF Radio – OR - 50 watt VHF Radio 2 full size spares (Depending on trip / 1 is minimum with plug kit) Off road GPS setup - Lowrance GPS Unit - Android – Backcountry Navigator - IOS – Motion X Tow Straps 5 Gallons of Fuel GPS mileage APP or Lowrance overlay - Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ee.planet.kaupov.gpstripmeter - IOS - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rally-tripmeter/id1063654075?mt=8 ----------------------------------- We are looking forward to seeing all the old faces on the trail as well as meeting new people who enjoy going out on desert trail runs.

  21. 1/28 – 1/29/2017: Open to Everyone – Lake Pleasant to Cleater Exploration, near Phoenix, AZ 4x4 Difficult, primitive camping Explore the route we recently discovered that "appears" to go from Lake Pleasant to Cleator, AZ. Get the inside scoop as we discover more about the area near Tip Top Mine. Negotiate the rugged terrain and soak up the amazing scenery as we gain elevation from Lake Pleasant into a canyon where a spectacular saguaro forest thrives. Discover mining ruins and sleep under the stars. Go into exploratory mode! UPDATE UPDATE: This run is now CANCELLED DUE TO FLOODING OF THE AGUA FRIA RIVER! WE MAY TRY TO PLAN SOMETHING FOR NEXT WEEKEND SO STAY TUNED! UPDATE: This is now a day run only - no camping due to weather. Same meetup time/place as before - see you all Saturday morning! Meet-up: Be fueled-up and ready Saturday 1/28 @ 9:30am at the McDonalds/Albertsons parking lot on Carefree Highway just east of I-17. Map here... Itinerary: We'll attempt a new way into this area on Saturday morning, starting on the Lake Pleasant side. Be prepared for some wrong turns and route finding since this is an exploratory trip! There are likely to be several loose steep climbs with ledges, so picking good lines will be key (of course we're here to spot you anytime it's needed). Satellite views indicate at least one new-to-us abandoned mining area with some ruins to see. The rugged landscape will give us plenty of opportunities for neat mountain and rocky terrain photos. You also might be able to get good distant shots of Lake Pleasant. We'll find somewhere in the middle of this remote area to tent camp in time for cocktails before dark Saturday afternoon. Sunday after breakfast, we'll pack up camp and then loop towards the north-east into some slightly higher elevations to explore another new-to-us section of trail. It doesn't look like the original idea of being able to exit towards Cleator is in fact possible, but this loop should take us back to the Table Mesa area while avoiding Tip Top mine this time (keeping us away from some of the bumpiest trail)! Unless we discover another exit route, we should be airing up at the Table Mesa area by mid to late afternoon and everyone can head home via I-17 from there. Additional Info: This trip is subject to cancellation due to rain. UPDATE: Forecast is calling for nothing but sun. It will be cold though (~60 during the day and 40 at night). Bring plenty of warm sleeping gear, a good coat, and your woolie hat! Please bring firewood if you have any room! Driver Requirement: This trail is for very experienced 4x4 enthusiasts only. 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 or a Ham Radio in good working order High-clearance 4x4's with low-range 33"+ aggressive all-terrain or mud-terrain tires At least 1 select-able or constant locker Vehicle Recommendations: Skid plates on important areas such as transfer-case & gas-tank, rock-rails, aftermarket differential covers, high-clearance metal bumpers, trimmed wheel wells, low axle gearing, upgraded axle shafts, 4:1 transfer case, 35"+ tires, custom roll-cage. State Trust Land Permit Please be sure to carry a current State Trust Land Permit (click here to buy online). UPDATE: The majority of this trip is on BLM land (no permit required) but we will cross some State Trust Land, so that permit is required. Fuel: Please top-off at the meetup spot (there's a Chevron there). We should all be OK with just one tank of gas. You may need an extra can if you have an excessively thirsty rig. Comms: CB channel 4 or ham simplex 146.46 MHz Just reply to this thread to sign up! This trip is limited to 7 total rigs. Once the limit is reached, anyone asking to sign-up will be placed on the standby list. Please don't hesitate to sign-up as a standby, because people often drop-out so you may get to still go.

  22. As Mike asked us, whether we are going again to the Vermilion Cliffs in 2017, we decided to fix the dates and post this trip way in advance. In the Vermilion Cliffs NM is the famous White Pocket formation located. Additionally there are a lot of rim overlooks and indian ruins. In july, I found two new locations, where I did not find any publications in the web so far. Overall there is a lot to discover. The trails are mostly sand trails. Most of them are usually easy, but some of them might be a little bit more difficult. We plan to arrive on march, 22nd evening at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Cliff Dwellers (map). Trail runs will be on 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th and we will leave on 27th morning. If somebody is interested to join, just reply to this thread. CB: Channel 4 Meeting point: Cliff Dwellers Lodge Meeting time:march, 23rd, 8 am Here a few pictures of the Vermillion Cliffs region: Attending: Chris & Astrid (ChrisD) Mike (mbuckner) Dennis (Maddogjeeper) Wayne (stockjeep)
