Soldier's Pass/Broken arrow run 3/29/13

Alright guys, I've mostly finalized my vacation plans, and I will be in Arizona next week! I'm planning on four wheeling it up on the Sedona trails on Friday! (Thursday will be Squaw peak and then Schnebly hill into Sedona).
Friday morning at around 9:30 am (for sure) I'll be at the Morgan Rd. Trail headgetting ready to start Broken Arrow, and after that I'm headed for Soldier's Pass! I'll probably be bringing my dad and/or my brother.
Anyone who wants to join us is welcome! If you're good with a camera or at spotting, you're even MORE welcome
Depending on the time and how we feel after those trails (I'll probably want to grab lunch if I haven't already by then), I may head out to Greasy Spoon to finish the day off! Let me know if you want to come and do all the trails, just some, or just show up and look for me there! I'll be in my silver extracab.
I'll be a little more sure on the time once it gets closer, but I'm trying to shoot for 9:30. If I don't think I'll be able to drag anyone out of bed by then, I'll let ya'll know by Tuesday or Wednesday.

So.. pretty much this are trailes around Sedona? I'm in the Phoenix. Do you have a place where to meet up? Like a gas station?

Bump. Weather's great guys! Went up through Bumblebee and Cleator yesterday for a warm up run. Took rd. 101 and came across an abandoned Jeep with water up over the fenderwells. Took an alternate route and just as I got stuck the Jeep's owner rolled up in a little 9 hp golfcart. Found out at a bad time that that my winch didn't work, but fortunately he brought a bunch of stuff for traction, and after helping me get dug out, I turned around, attached the winch cable to him, put it in reverse and pulled him out.

And now my truck is sufficiently dirty for Sedona

Sounds like a fun trip, would a stock 1996 tacoma 4x4 make it on soldier pass?

A stock 4x4 can get through any trail in Sedona. The hardest thing out there is Broken Arrow's staircase... and even then you should be perfectly fine.

I probably wouldn't take a stock 4x4 2nd gen on all of the trails up there. Clearance will be an issue on some of the step-ups no matter what angle you take. There are 2 or 3 spots I can think of that even push the limits of a stock bumper even with a 2.5" lift. Last I was out there, there was one big step up to the area where Mushroom Rock is. Stock bumper would have scraped there if you weren't extremely careful. I don't want this guy to go int here stock and be thinking that it's easy.

You should be fine. From what I've heard there are plenty of bypasses and turn around points. Depending on how many people show, you may be able to get spotters to help you choose the best lines to take.

Because I'm leaving Saturday afternoon. And I'm SDA, so I'll be in church Saturday morning.

Stock 1996 could probably make it, just depends on how much damage he's willing to take Since my winch turns out to not be working, I won't be as prepared as I normally would be, but hopefully we'll have plenty of people out there to help if something happens.

Lots of turnarounds on that trail. It's tight, but there's a plowed turnaround or "passing" area about every 100-200' so the Pink Jeeps can work around each other and everyone else.

Figured as much. They're crawling all over here! Saw probably 3 dozen by the time I got off Schnebly Hill rd. I drove all the way to the top to find out it was closed, so I took it from Sedona as far up the hill as I could go. Nice drive. Not too tough at all, so you can enjoy the scenery. Only saw one other Yota on the trail, Jeeps are pretty much king here. Can't wait to get out on the tough stuff and show em up tomorrow!

Update: Alright, 9:30 is when I'm starting out for sure now. If anybody else wants to come out and meet me at Broken Arrow trailhead, I'll see you there!
