    Who: Arizona TacomaWorld members and friends (Out of staters are welcome!!)

    What: Meet, Greet, Convoy and Trail Run

    When: Saturday, September 18, 2010

    Time: 9:30 AM at the Happy Valley & I-17 main meeting location. We will leave promptly at 10am and will NOT wait for anyone. Tucson guys... please see here; http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/ar...oup-drive-phoenix-september-18-trail-day.html

    Where: Bradshaw Mountain in the North-central, Arizona area. The convoy will meet up and fill up at the Lowe's parking lot just south of the Shell gas station on 23rd Avenue and Happy Valley Road, just east of I-17.

    Why did we choose this trail?
    Senator highway is a beautiful, easy going trail which runs from Crown King to Prescott. Here, Crown King was reached via the Bumblebee Road. It may also be reached via the "Back Road," which itself warrants a trail review. The entire trip is very scenic and features diverse landscape. During the winter time, a trip after some rainfall might reveal mud and/or snow!

    How difficult is the trail?
    This trail is about getting outside, taking it easy, enjoying the scenery, and having a good time with people. Any reasonable vehicle will be fine... The trail has been rated a 2.0/5.0 for it's general smoothness and lack of major obstacles. There is no real danger of pin-striping. Weather conditions may make the trail a 2.5 or above as mud can cause some trouble.

    So, how long is it?
    The full run as outlined below is over 60 miles. At a comfortable pace, it was run in about 4 hours. Leave in the morning, and have lunch in Prescott!

    Where does the trail start?
    Take I-17 north to Exit 248 Bumblebee Road. It will turn to dirt, and that's about it. There are a few turns along the first part of Bumblebee, but signs will point you to Crown King. There are also turns in Crown King itself. Check out the attached GPS file for clarification.

    Why: ...because it's been too damn long since I've seen everyone! [​IMG]

    Lunch: I'm split on whether everyone should bring their own food or if we should make a pit-stop at a diner. Depending on the size of our group, it could make collective restaurant dining a difficult. Any thoughts?

    Weather forecast: To be updated as the event day gets closer.

    Bradshaw Mountain has several trails for us to run around the Bumble Bee, Crown King and Cleator areas. This decision is based on the theory that it will provide our group with as much flexibility as possible for all those who attend. Most trails in the Bradshaw Mountains provide "alternate" routes; ie... a challenging and a easy option to the same destination.

    Last details;
    A couple of days before the event, I will PM each member planning on attending and ask them for their phone number (if they are willing to give it out). I will print out 40+ copies of everyone's TacomaWorld name, real name and contact phone number.

    It'll stay 9:30. People would be wise to arrive by then and get gas, check tire pressures, all that stuff. Once the clock hits 10, we are leaving no ifs, ands or buts.

    Before we leave, we will each take the hand-out contact list and then identify who has radios and who doesn't. Those with radios will break up in anticipation of the group being segmented.

    Before we leave, we will also determine the radio channel that we will be on.

    Before we leave, I will also give everyone a brief of what is going on, why we are doing it, what happens in the event of an accident/ incident and I will remind everyone that on the I-17 on the way up... that there is no reason to drive like a nutso as we will stick out like a sore-thumb.

    If you are a Sport Prerunner or Base Model Open Diff 2WD and plan to wheel with us at any event you MUST have at the bare minimum:

    Plenty of thread on your tires
    Tow strap*
    At least 1 functional spare and a means to properly change it**

    You are responsible for your truck, any damage that might incur from said trip will be entirely your responsibility and up to you to fix, the meet organizers can not and will not be held responsible for your truck, you attend these events At Your Own Risk

    I say this not because I wish to exclude anyone but for everyone's own safety. This warning will go at the bottom of all meet threads organize, if anyone else chooses to use it as well you are more than welcome to.

    *If you don't have one, no worries, a few of us will have a tow strap you can use
    **I know a few guys said they will have spares for themselves and others to use

    Cool I'm in pending approval of time off, I'll put in for it this morning.

    There's plenty of places in Prescott metro itself we could probably get grub... or we could do some BBQ or such. I could probably manage to bring my grill.
