All right!

Steve started to put this together but I told him I would post it on the board.

Steve (Viscacha) Either Date Camping - Confirmed (1)
Jaime (CAT) Either Date Camping - Confirmed (1)
Keith 25th, Camping, looking for ride from East Valley!
Mike (WILL E) 25th, Camping - Confirmed (2)
Chet (Mntgoat) either date, one day only - Cancelled (0)
Derek (To Be named) 25th, Camping (2)
Bob - Rstep (18th is better) - No confirmation
Tad Not going (0)
Ralph - Can't go. (0)
Allen (BigRedCheif) Not Going (0)
Tom (Johnson) - Not going. (0)
Kevin and Kristen Camping - Confirmed (2)
Nick and 2 friends Camping - Confirmed (3)
Jerry - Not going (0)
Mike A Going 1 day only. (2)

We're looking at 2 possible dates for this event. Either the weekend of March 18th or the 25th. It will be set up so that those who attend can either go for just the day or camp out and do some trailing on a second day.

(Right now we are leaning twords the 25th as the date).

Here's the scoop so far:

Chivo Falls/Redington Loop located in the Rincon Mtns east of Tucson.

Meet: 9:30 McDonalds (was 10am)
9075 East Tanque Verde Road @ Catalina Hyw
Tucson, AZ 85749
(across the street from the Chuy's, Tucson M&G)

Trail: Chivo Falls / Frog Holler (pray for rain). When we reach the falls we'll split up and the one-day group will go back out to the road via "Three Feathers" for a little more play time. The two-day group will continue along the Redington loop and set up camp on the trail. Sunday should be a short day to allow time for those from further away to get back home at a reasonable hour.

Steve Rath of the Tucson area is heading this one up. Jaime and The Cat will be coming out from El Paso to attend.

If you wish to join the trail ride please pick a date which works for you and reply to the AFSJC mailing list or to this email. We will pick the final date in a couple of weeks so reply soon. Thanks.

If you want to attend but can't stay for the whole day or your rig is not quite ready yet then you can meet up with us at McDonalds and drive up Redington Pass rd 7 miles to the trail head as part of the group. Redington Pass rd is a class 2 dirt road with some switchbacks and great views of the old pueblo. The trail leading from there to Three feathers is a class 2.5 trail approximately 1/2 mile in length. For those who want to wheel to Chivo Falls the trail from Three Feathers is rated a class 3.5 approximately 4 miles long one way. The entire two-day trail ride will total 16 miles. Rock crawling, aggressive hill climbs, and boulder hopping will be among some of the activities. There is no Arizona pin striping on this trail.

Looks like this is going to be a last minute decision for me. It's a busy month. I'll keep my eye on the thread and try to make it. If I'm not there, don't wait for me.

The 25th is better for me. I'm still not sure if I'll be bringing Johnson or needing a ride. I probably can't camp because I'm on call every weekend.

Okay, we set the date for March 25th. Looks like we are going to get a decent turn out.

Okay, today I’m hanging out in Marana where I’ve been seeing some nice fsj’s and am going to hand out trail ride fliers after I chase them down to their homes in Continental Ranch. LOL. I hope I don’t get shot. I’ll get some Tucson rigs on this trail ride if it kills me.

I have a couple of “others” coming, an xj and a zj.

OK,
Looks like I am going to make this trip with Kristen. Not sure yet whether or not I will bring the Chief, or maybe Kristen's LJ. I might just postpone pulling my engine until after this trip. Steve, I think you said that you were not in too much of a hurry for it. I figure by the time I get the new motor broke in, it will be past 100 degrees and not too much fun for wheeling. I am trying to get my brother out here that weekend too to bring the '88 wag down for some fun. Got it all buttoned back up. New oil pump and mid plate and it holds near 60 psi while driving. Not too bad for a 360 with over 200,000 miles. Anyway, we will be camping. Looking forward to it. How are we going to handle the food? I can always just pitch in money for the famous breakfast. See you guys soon. Tom if you need a ride, you are more than welcome. Mike, we should caravan down with any other east valley folks.
Kevin.

Kevin, the longer you keep the motor the better it is for me since I can’t install it until winter. There is a super market in the plaza at the meeting place where you can last minute shop. Hmm, I wonder what Mike wants to do?

For those camping out here is a slideshow link to some pics of Redington loop and where we will be camping. It’s the lower crossing on Tanque Verde creek known as the minefield. The brown fsj golden eagle that gwinn and I met out at chiva one time is winching a couple baby jeeps out of the water crossing and mud. They have a lot of good shots of the golden eagle making it across and of course a broken leaf spring repair on someone’s rig. The brown Cherokee is planning on attending our trail ride so I’m told.

Think rain.

That looks like something I would really like to go on...unfortunatly I have about another month before my Wagon is gonna be ready. It's gettin painted this weekend, and hopefully BJ's will send the lift along quickly. He was waiting on a few parts before he could ship it out. I think that's another two weeks away. Thanks for the invite Will e I'll have to catch the next one.

Thumbs up

I can't believe it all happened so fast! And it looks even better in person. Of course it only gets better once the NP205 gets installed.

Hopefully I can get my Franken-Beast together before the heat sets in. But I vow that it will breathe fire by this time next year because I'm not missing another season AND I wanna go to the Easter Jeep Safari.

But for now I'm completely content going as a passenger on these trail runs. I haven't been wheeling or camping in 7 almost 8 years so I am full awn jonesing. With any luck we will see some of the flowing water the Tucson guys are talking about.

If the board goes down again email me at
olliehopnoodle@hotmail.com to get updates.

I think we are going to move the meet time to 9:30. This will give the group time to get to a good camp spot without rushing through the day.

As it turns out the 25th is looking like a pretty good date to go wheeling in the Rincon mtns. This area has an incredible watershed. With the last snow melt and this weekend’s snow there will be water in the creek, maybe even flowing. There will be some water coming over the falls as well. There will be a minefield to test your nerves, oh yea.

It’s a good thing we are not going this weekend. The loop and the minefield would prolly be a class 4.5 considering the forecast. The trip to chivo would be interesting, too.

Now who’s going???
