4th Annual Josh Memorial Run April 21st Hot wells dunes

Unread postby Ashman » Sun Mar 25, 2012 8:12 am

For those of your that didnt know Josh Parrish, He was one of my grade school buddies growing up in sierra vista. We had common hobbies through high school like skate boarding and car audio. We both got married young and our kids would play together when we would visit sierra vista. For years Josh owned and maintained WAZ. When he got sick it looked like he would never wheel his unfinished FJ40 project. Josh's wife let us in the garage, we rolled out the cruiser and towed it to my house for some WAZ club members to finish. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3947&start=157

We returned it to Josh in time for him to wheel it several times.

Josh passed away from Cancer at the age of 28, Nov 1, 2008.

We do an annual memorial run for Josh every year around April close to his birthday.

The hot wells dunes Is located near Bowie Arizona, it is a recreational OHV park maintained by BLM. It is a mix of sand dunes and dirt (I wont run paddles there).

Were gonna bring the buggy, dirt bike and quads.

Were planning to drive up Friday morning the 20th or Thursday night the 19th and come home Saturday afternoon.

I heard the natural spring hot tubs were refurbished and flowing again, the new pumps are solar powered so they are only pumping during the day now. I heard alot of the trees near the camping areas are gone, well try to get a good camping spot but with a big group well get scattered to different camps.

I talked to Tom who bought Josh's Fj40 and he is excited to come out for this trip and thinks he can rally up 5 wheeling buddies.

Well need to mark off the WAZ Camping area so we can find each other.

I have many neighbors talking about going with their quads and sidebysides but dont have a head count yet. Invited 13 of the riders in my neighborhood.

I'm planning on making this trip. Never been to Hot Wells but always wanted to check it out. Too bad I don't have the dirt bike anymore. Not sure if I'll drive up early Sat. morning or after work on Friday yet or how much of thte family I'll bring.

Is this a good place to just camp & hang out? The wife is not really into the off-road thing and I can't fit the wife & 2 kids in the pick up anyways. I'm sure she'll like the hot tubs and if you can't walk to the tubs can a Honda Pilot 4WD make it?

18 Shirts are done and on their way to my house.

YM 1
S 3
M 3
L 3
XL 5
2XL 2
3XL 1
Total 18

Camping is right off the main road.
We will end up in different camp areas off the main road in the trees, there is not one really large group camping area except at the end but no trees to block wind.

Some pictures to give you an idea of the camping area.
They do have some picnic tables in some camp spots and there are trash cans and outhouses.
