WAZ Florence run Nov22-23 Camping/wheeling

Unread postby Ashman » Mon Sep 22, 2014 3:42 pm

I want to do a WAZ run in Florence at the end of November.
Hoping to have a good size group.

Rig requirements will depend on who wants to go. If we gather a larger group we could split up into a more extreme group and a more mild group if we have trail leaders for both.

Ill start a runs thread but wanted to discuss interest and trails you might want to run.

I would drive out Friday Camp Friday night off cotton wood rd, Wheel Saturday, Wheel some Sunday Morning then drive home.

What trails would you like to run?

On Sat a more build group could run:
Upper woodpecker

Highway to hell
Ajax
Upper Ajax
Axle Alley
(more trails if you can keep up?)

The mild group could run upper woodpecker and lower ajax.

Sunday
For the built group
BM
Afew other trails I could show the group.

Less built group could run:
Box canyon
Elvis
If time permits: Jack Handle

Whos in, what rig do you have, what trails would you like to run.

Ill post up some pics of the trails so you know what your getting into.

Upper wood pecker is an easy trail, The Three metals mining has an exploratory permit, he can drive his 2wd dump truck all the way up to his claim, the bypasses are disappointingly easy.

The Fire hole is the main obstacle with an easy bypass.

Highway to hell is a hard trail, It has some bypasses but not all easy ones. This is one of the longer Florence trails.

Has a big notch followed by a water fall ledge. Lots of rocks, another few waterfall climbs, the hardest one has an easier line around.

Ajax is a medium trial, the harder obstetricals are not real hard but dont have bypasses.

I dont think I have any pictures of lower Ajax, only upper starting from the water tank by the exit of H2H. The notch at the end has been called the Ajax Extension.

Axle Alley starts with one waterfall climb. Some years its really hard some years its cake. Most years its mild. The left rock you would hook your front drivers tire on is no longer there, it it gets deep like many years ago it might be impassable for most buggies shorter than 108in WB.

Its has several other fun climbs but the first one is spectacle.

First picture is an easy year, 2nd and 3rd pictures were almost impassable.

BM is a very difficult notch climb. if you fall in you can get wedged and break axle shafts. Ive broke several shafts on it.

Elvis Is a medium trail, will require lockers and some rocker protection. Not hard but there are some optional run lines for built rigs.

I dont have many pictures of elvis I either took video or we blew through it quickly.

Dave I would be in for Sat. And most likely would bring the 98 so easy / med runs. BTW you could add bad medicine as a med/hard trail that is pretty fun. it's more than my 98 could do but others could do it. and I believe I will have a passenger, @chuggins143 should be in town :D

:thumb: I'm up for going the whole weekend. I'd like to run the med trails. Done a couple of easy trails in 2wd. But I'm only in samurai with open diffs, 4.57's and 31's. Still very capable rig.

So 7 years ago we planned this same kinda run. A Mix of all rig types and split into two groups. Rained the whole weekend.
I lead the stocker group to martinez, didnt even do the whole loop but had a blast, bombing through the washes in full rain gear, many fun stories. The second day I joined the more built group to do some medium trails that were more difficult in the rain.

I might be able to make it. I hope all the rain washed out a lot of rock and dirt.

Last time I was up there, did Ajax at night and got about half way through the canyon and it started pooring. I was spotting at the time. Soaked. :mad2:

looks like it could be a BADASS weekend, I'll run med. group until I get my front locker. I will probably only run Saturday though.
I did run H2H before but had to winch up every water fall, so i will get my revenge when I get my E-locker for the front axle, but waiting on fund right now.

How much are those shirts they look awesome?

I would like to try and make this run with you guys if yall take visitors.

It will mainly depend on if the jeep is running. It is currently getting the LT1 replaced with a 6.0. The jeep is a 85 CJ7 with the 6.0 LQ9, Atlas 4spd, 42 IROKS, Sunray 1550 front, 9 inch rear, ORI's, 4 linked f/r, lockers, cage, winch. The jeep will do much better than the driver.

Last time I drove a trail blindfolded (have actually attempted this) I thought it was a blast, my co driver One Armed Steve... though it was not so much fun.

Started out with the motor revving, wheels straight, could feel everything vibrating... How fast are we going Steve? Were not even moving yet....
