My biggest concern was my wheelbase and lack of turning sharp once down in there! That is what killed me the most, I had my front on the rock ledge to the left, just couldn't get my rear where it needed to be :cry:

Oh well.

It was still a great time had by all that was there! And that is what it is ALL ABOUT!

Wish you guys would have stayed longer. We thought that certainly someone would be there. That's a long drive for 1 day.

I guess I don't have a "buggy" :D


I forgot to mention, that line you get a little bound up as well! Guess you found that out the hard way. The worse part is getting the front to climb spanning the gap, especially when your spotter doesn't have you far enough passenger and turning into it. The pics of my rig(Black YJ thingy) works but is the "hard" way. Notice how straight my tire is and not far enough passenger. The Red TJ buggy is alot nicer on parts and also less likely to fall in. Notice how far the tire is turned and how far passenger the tires is. Stickys, water, and suckdown also help for the exit to carry the rear without the front end of the rig unloading.




Ryan, I thought that was you when you drove by! Now I see you in one of the pics! I thought you were a SNOB :scratching:

When was this? The only people I saw up there was the Red Tracker and Blue Zuki on trailers heading south on the 377.....

In Arizona. Certain individuals need to be contacted for a run out there as they are the "caretakers". Best bet is to find a planned run.

Good call Spinnas, this is one of those locations that we dont want to post directions on a public forum. For those that havent been you would be surprised at how little trash there is on the trail. In fact i believe none.

I must say I was impressed at how clean the area was, and glad that we all keep it that way :thumb: .

I also am proud to all the fellow wheelers out there that have wheeled at the cracks and have picked up their trash-it was very clean my first outing and this one also.(I did pick up a broken hub on the side of the road)

As far as being"public" I think that Toyman has fixed that, you have to be registered to see most of the forum-but what do I know!

Either way, great place to wheel and by all means, go with someone.

Yep, I called up Bill and Justin(the "caretakers" if you will) as they wanted an update on the trails to see if they needed to do any maintenance. Everything was good except for all the mud everywhere. Although I did pick up one aluminum can, that's all I saw. Like I said, if you want to run out there, wait for a planned run as the people that are planning it would already be in contact with Bill, Justin, etc...
