  1. Just a note... anyone may use this forum to plan & announce trips! Simply post a new thread in the "Trip & Event Planning/Sign-up" forum. We created a handy template you might want to reference if you're unsure what information to post. Usually people simply reply within your thread when they want to attend. We find it handy to continually "edit" the first post with an attending list and any new important details. That way everyone can see what's going on without having to read the entire thread. Also adding your event to the calendar with a link to your sign-up thread will ensure that it is seen by everyone. If you need help posting an event, or are just feeling forum-shy about making your first post, don't hesitate to send us a PM or use the Contact Us form. This is a community and we want you to all participate in whatever way you feel comfortable! Thanks!
  2. Who's down for Saturday, August 17 for a night run on the next full moon? Suggesting Log Corral to the saddle and back or Sunflower Mine Loop, but leaving it to the group. Vote in the poll and sign up! Log Corral Trail: Rated Moderate + due to the rock garden in the canyon. Big waterfall is by-passable now. The rest of the trail is easy up and over the saddle and on down to the lake. Just there a couple weeks ago, and the trees and bushes were nicely trimmed. Sunflower Mine Loop: Rated Difficult due to a variety of challenges: rock crawl in the creek, long climb out of creek, areas with moguls, short sections of shelf roads. The trail is very scenic as it winds back into a canyon, and offers neat views of the highway at night. Meet-up: Saturday, August 17, 2019 @ 6:00 PM at the Baja gas station (Chevron) on Hwy 87 and Fort McDowell Rd: Map link here... Note: You may want to get gas first someplace else cheaper! These trails recommended for experienced 4x4 enthusiasts. 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 in good working order High-clearance 4x4's with low-range 33"+ aggressive all-terrain or mud-terrain tires Select-able or constant lockers front and rear OR at least limited-slip rear axle Vehicle Recommendations: Skid plates on important areas such as transfer-case & gas-tank, rock-rails, aftermarket differential covers, high-clearance metal bumpers, winch, trimmed wheel wells, low axle gearing, upgraded axle shafts, 4:1 transfer case, 35"+ tires, roll-cage.

  3. Where do you want to go offroad in 2020? The Offroad Passport Team has already started shaping up some really great trip ideas that we are going to lead this fall, and in 2020. Like every year, we're planning a year in advance so you guys can get time off from work, or whatever, and go. And again this year, we're reaching out to our members to help round out the trips & events calendar. This is a club, and to keep it going, we need participation in the form of folks leading or co-leading trips. We are looking for people with trip ideas, who are willing to lead a trip with our support. We can help with planning, permits, posting in the forum, routes, maps, GPS tracks, etc. (we love this stuff ). No guarantee, but most likely we'll sign up for your run or alt-lead it because that's how we roll. NEW this year, we need people willing sign up as Alt-leader. Alternate leaders will take over leadership of a trip if the original leader gets sick, or for whatever reason, can't go, or needs to meet later, or whatever. The Alt-leader would be fully supported with gpx tracks, maps, review of the the trip plan, any permits, etc. We hope to eliminate last minute cancellations. The more people willing to try their hand at leading a trip of any kind, the better! In fact, day runs and one night camp-outs are the most popular; most people can't take off for a week, except maybe once a year. We think it would even be awesome to see us start having meet-n-greets, BBQ's, or similar non-wheeling events here and there! So now is the time to let us know what trails you'd be up for leading this fall or in 2020. We had such great response last year; let's keep it going! We want to see this club really take on a life of it's own! Post in this thread or PM us. Thanks in Advance to Everyone!
  4. We had a very productive Trip Planning Meeting this morning, so we'd like to gauge everyone's interest in these trip ideas. These are not all necessarily for 2018, we just want to know your interest in general. Vote for as many as you want, and be sure to vote in the other 2 in this forum as well!

  7. We're getting ready to plan the Trips & Events Calendar for 2018, and we wondered if you guys would be interested in having some input to the process? Members often mention some really great ideas as to places to go and things to see, so we thought maybe you would. If you are interested, would you rather attend a meeting or post your ideas in a thread on the forum? Should both be an option? Please vote in the poll so we can decide if a Trips & Events Ideas Meeting and/or thread is something we should do. Thanks you guys!
  8. Ill be checking this out with a couple friends not members here. Natural Restorations is holding this cleanup event. Any interest?

Cleanup runs from 8am to 1pm. https://www.facebook.com/events/607304322805448/
  9. This thread is to gauge interest in doing an Offroad Passport entry in the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade in Fountain Hills. If enough people want to do it I'll get an entry form. I'd like at least 7 - 10 rigs, and I can provide 2 of those, so at least 5 more... We would all need to be staging early (7 am I think?). Oh, and you'll be back home by noon so you won't miss turkey and all the trimmings! Let me know if you want to do it!!

  12. Many of our members have pets who enjoy adventuring as much as we do! The following policy is designed to keep everyone (and their fur babies) safe and happy. Thank you for helping us keep Offroad Passport a pet-friendly club by following these few simple guidelines! Offroad Passport Pet Policy Our priority is the safety of our members and their enjoyment of Offroad Passport trips and events. Friendly, non-disruptive pets are welcome on most trips. Trip leaders have final say whether pets (in general or specific ones) are welcome on their run. Pets must be well behaved around other pets and people, including small children. They must be on a leash and in the owner's control at all times. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets (picking up their waste) in a timely manner. Members whose pets exhibit dangerous, threatening or disruptive behavior during an outing (such as biting, growling, snapping, barking, chasing, taking food, begging for food, marking other people's property, etc.) will be asked to keep their pet in their rig or at their camp, away from rest of the group for the duration of the trip. Pets that repeatedly disrupt or threaten group safety will not be allowed to attend future trips and events.

  14. 12/5/2015 3PM Hunter's 17th Annual BBQ 625 S. Smith Rd. Suite 1, Tempe AZ 85281 Here is the short scoop. When: Saturday, Dec. 5th 3:00 PM - till we close it down. (Usually about 7-8) Where: Hunter Offroad 625 S Smith Tempe, Arizona, 85281 This is a pot-luck style event. Needed most are the BBQ grills and tables. Everyone brings a little bit of food, and there is plenty for everyone. One huge pot luck. Bring a pack of burgers, a pack of hot dogs or soda. Bring a side dish, bean dip or ketchup, etc. Got a BBQ grill? Bring it and be a hero. Grills are always needed. Bring some cash for raffle tickets, T-shirts and other little items. I have some long sleeve shirt T-shirts left from last year and looking to get more black "shop" edition shirts. Bring some chairs to sit in, an a table to on if ya got it. Oh, don't forget the camera. Check below for all the info. I will be "Stuffing the Buggy" again this year for the a Toy Drive for the Sheriff's Office. It has become pretty succeful and a great tradition. Here's are basics and how-to rules for the BBQ, for all of you newbies coming for the first time; or for those of you, cant remember the last one .. If there are changes, they will be added here. Watch the "update" date to see if anything has been added. Notes will be added. (Such as more tables or if I need more BBQ grills, because you can never really have enough tables and BBQs) - First Rule - Food. Everyone brings a little. Biggest tailgate, or flat fender pot-luck party. Everyone will have a lot. Bring a side dish, bring a few bottles of ketchup, plates, drinks what ever. If you can, post what you are bring here so some folks can get an idea what you are bringing. One thing I ask.... If you buy meat, try and buy matching buns, helps cut down on being too lopsided. Bring a cooler with ice and have a friend bring sodas or water. You get the idea. - Why its done: Goes back to the roots of the very first one - Allows everyone a chance to meet other Jeeper's and other 4wheeler's and swap ideas, check out other rides and get ideas, make friends and have a good time. Most fun you will have with your 4x4 in parking lot. There are a lot of new faces this year and should be plenty of new people from other clubs. So feel free to spread the word. - RTI Ramp - It will be good times as usual on the Ramp. Show everyone what you got. See if you improved over last year. Or just have fun and flex out for the camera. A rule to remember: I may have 2 ramps this year. Also, if you plan on going "all out" on the ramp, make sure you put the word out so we can give you room and get the cameras ready. - The Infamous "Screw 'Em Raffle - I am always looking for items and business to promote for donate, 4x4 related or not. If anyone here has a local business, regardless if its 4x4 related or now, contact me if, still in the communuty and like to help get the word in regards to the raffle or having a vendor booth space. The Raffle Overview. 1 Dollar a Ticket. 12 for 10 bucks *If you wear a Hunter Offroad T-shirt, you also get a free raffle ticket. *If you deck out your ride in Christmas decoration, you will also get free ticket for that. Personal Beverages at the BBQ? Only thing I ask, remember, it is a family event, so take care and mind your self. It is private property so you can enjoy. If you like to bring some cold ones and talk shop with your buddies, go ahead and play nice and be prepared to share with the host. And my standing rule goes, I may or may not tell you what is my soda... Selling Stuff Swap Meet ideas. I have no problem if you want to sell some of your parts. Helps you and osmeone else get some good stuff.. Thats what this is all about. Only rule, don't bring so much stuff, that is takes up room in the parking lot for people to park. If you have something bigger, leave it on the street. I want to save room for folks to setup their chairs, and allow as much room for people to park as possible in the lot. Usually a Jeep in a place will still have some room in front, behind or besides to display stuff. That's fine. I need BBQ's. And Ill say it again, Im gonna need some BBQs. And tables for the food... always do. More the better. From the past, 5 normal size grills can cook all we need in the time to feed everyone. Be a hero and bring a grill. We are always looking for volunteers to help. Also, anyone want to run the kitchen area? I have found it does help to have a little direction. If You wantto bring a BBQ, please send me a message Email: hunteroffroad@aol.com or call 480-557-7577 Do not to forget to bring Tables and chairs to sit on too for you and for others. Also, I will need BIG tables for Kitchen Area. Contact me if you have some. Will need at least 4 to 5 3x8 tables. That should cover the bulk of it. This post will be the one I update so check it for the news. Best Regards, John "Hunter"

  18. 10/24/2015: Offroad Passport Mud Springs Trail Clean-up Sponsored by Extreme Terrain Offroad Passport is the proud recipient of a ExtremeTerrain Clean Trail Grant! ExtremeTerrain strongly advocates for the responsible recreational use of off-road trails, and this is a great way to show your support too! We're doing a clean-up at Mud Springs Trail, focusing mainly on the staging area at the trail-head. Water, snacks and lunch will be provided (thanks ExtremeTerrain!). To keep us on budget we're limiting the number of people helping to about 25, including Offroad Passport staff. Lunch will be served after the work is done! Extreme Terrain is supplying the food and Offroad Passport is cooking up some hot dogs and hamburgers. There will be a raffle after lunch! Everyone who comes out to help clean will receive a free raffle ticket! Meet-up: 8:00 AM TheKSmith will lead a convoy the location Saturday morning. If you plan on convoying please let us know so he can expect you. Shell/Circle K on Shea Blvd & Monterey Dr., Fountain Hills, AZ (South side of Shea, West of Hwy 87). Map here: https://goo.gl/maps/d8dnQ Additional Info: Clean-up Location If you'd rather drive to the site on your own, from the intersection with Shea Blvd. (see map of meet up, above) take Hwy 87 (Beeline Highway) north to about 3/4 of a mile past mile marker 212. Make a right turn immediately after you cross the bridge at the bottom of the hill (highway sign that says Sycamore Creek). Cross the creek and follow the signs; we're hoping for a spot toward the right as you're going in. Tonto National Forest Volunteer Group Guidelines: We'll read the bulk of the items at the check-in area, but mostly it's all about safety, safety, safety! [*] Keep hydrated throughout the day!

  19. 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... ---------------------------- Meetup: 9:30 AM 4-Son's Convenience Store, at the intersection of the I-17 and Carefree Highway. (East of the 17 & North side of the Carefree Hwy). Talk in: Simplex - 147.520 Repeater - Shaw Butte 147.240 + offset 162.2 Tone Air down/up will be at the same spot on the west side of the Table Mesa exit off of the I-17, so this is RZR/ATV friendly. Many moons ago a novice off-roader traveled The Table Mesa area for the first time with aired down, street friendly tires. The newbie eagerly followed the experienced lead 4x4 down a trail that "looked like a lot of fun" and promptly tore open a side wall on the first hill. This trail forever became known (at least to him) as "The Flat Tire Trail", know to have been traveled at least once by "The Most Interesting Man in the World". A fun, narrow, hilly and tippy trail, Flat Tire is a nice, short detour on the way to Tip Top Silver Mine. Tip Top is a typical Arizona Ghost Town complete with dilapidated buildings and remnants of a silver mine. At it's peak, Tip Top had 500 residents, it's own post office and was one of Arizona's largest towns at the time. Expect a relaxed day with stock friendly trails with a lunch stop planned in Tip Top (BYOL). Hope to see you there! ---------------------------- Please click here for complete information on this event or to sign-up...

Click here for the full thread... ---------------------------- Join us the second Saturday in November for our annual trip to the Titan Missile Museum in Sahuarita, AZ. Each year 4x4 Ham holds a fall get-together at the base of the 80-foot tall discone antenna that is part of the a Cold War Titan missile complex located south of Tucson, AZ. The antenna is still serviceable, thanks to the efforts of the Green Valley Amateur Radio Club, and available for amateur use. In addition to working the antenna for the day, many folks participate in one of the guided tours of the missile site put on by Museum volunteers. This year, I'm organizing the trip from outside the Phoenix metro area. If anyone in the Phoenix area wants to put together a caravan to travel down, feel free to do so in this forum post. I'll be making the drive from the Alamogordo, NM area if anyone from the Borderlands wants to caravan. Otherwise, make your own way to Sahuarita, AZ by 9:00am Arizona time and we'll meet up in the parking lot at the base of the antenna near the coax connection. We should have radios running throughout the day until around 1600. Bring drinks/snacks and any radios you might want to try to hook up to the antenna, as we'll have ample opportunity to put various radios and modes on the air throughout the day. WHAT: Titan Missile Museum Activation WHEN: Saturday, November 14th, 2015 from 9am to 5pm. WHERE: Titan Missile Museum, 1850 W Duval Mine Rd, Sahuarita, AZ Hope to see you there! ---------------------------- Please click here for complete information on this event or to sign-up...
