First off sorry for the late post as I understand some will be hard pressed to get a Monday off. It time to let the man know you life is important. I printed some extra hall passes if anyone want to go and needs one

August ROTM 18-20

Grand Canyon & White Pocket

The plan
Leaving the Flagstaff area 9AM on Saturday
I will pick a camp spot near (TBA) Google Maps I will be going up on Friday. So people can come up any time from Friday to Saturday morning but we will be leaving at 9:00AM on Saturday from the Flagstaff area. You will need to be 100% ready to go full of gas ect.
Saturday drive up to my secret spot on the lower ridge North Rim of the Grand Canyon 270°. Several things to do and see on the way. Sunday morning depart and head up a very cool set of switchbacks to the main entrance of North Rim Park. We will not be entering the park. We will head to Jacobs Lake stopping to visit one of the few 100' fire towers in Arizona and down to House Rock road. We will travel up House Rock to a place called White Pocket for a day of exploring. There is a ton of stuff in the area and depending on the size of the group and the speed we travel will determine any side trip. Monday will be a travel day home with again possible some quick spot at other points of interest time permitting.

First night camp
6000' elevation

Be aware if you have kids or dogs you have no fences or railing to keep you from driving or falling off. One bad step will be your LAST. You have been warned.



Second night White Pocket

5800' elevation

So is this stocker friendly? 31" with no lockers? Might be able to get some time off. Boss has been away for a few weeks but have been working seven days week.

This is the spot/road linked below for camping Friday night and where we will be departing from Sat morning. The area has no facilities

Google Maps

This trail is expected to be stocker friendly

We will be stopping for a final gas fillup 40 miles north of the camp/meeting spot linked below
Google Maps
From this point you will need to be able to travel 200 miles on the fuel you carry, plan accordingly.

Definitely maybe in for this one. Couldn't make it last year and promised myself I wouldn't miss it next time. Need to get my driveshaft vibes dealt with beforehand.

So the Perseid meteor shower this year will reach it peak on the night of August 12th going into August 13th. If our campsite have a good view of the northeastern sky, we might have ourselves a nice show.

Work looks like it will be accommodating! Looking forward to this a lot, I can't remember the last time I was on dirt, and that's a problem.
I will never forget the last time we were on dirt IDK how you forgot :rofl:.

Unfortunately I am not able to attend this run with Baby stuff and keeping the wife happy. Can't wait to see pictures!
