    Hey peeps,
    to anyone who's interested, me and the Rhino are gonna go run Desoto on Sat. the 17th of April. Would be cool to meet up with some other Cruiserheads on a 4x trip. Hopefully this trail should be at least moderately difficult. It's located a little NW of Black Canyon City and runs up into the Bradshaw Mts.

    yeah, should be a nice run, difficult enough to make it fun but do-able for less built rigs too. the trail goes around behind crown king up high on the mtn.
    i will be running up to crown king the back way from pleasant, whomever wants to run that way with me can meet me where the dirt road crosses the back of the lake (so i can drown a worm or two while waiting). the rush will be comming down from cottonwood and we'll be meeting up in crown king, so anyone who just wants to run up I-17 can meet us there.

    Hey Rhino, are we gonna start at the official starting point between CK and Prescott, or the ending point, down by my favoritist town in the whole-wide-world, Cleator? Personally I'd rather come down I-17 to the CK turnoff and head up, than drive that down from Prescott on the Senator. Desoto looked to be fairly long, so I don't wanna be dilly-dallying on my way there.

    hey LX, i dont know about body damage. we havent run this trail yet. i think the most of the rocks will be whatever is in the wash part of the run, i dont belive this is a "rock crawling" type trail but it is supposed to be rough and tight... if you want to try it and decide to back out once you get there and have a look its fine by me. you could spend the remainder of the day sightseeing the area (crown king, horsethief pond) or driving back to prescott the back way (i think your in prescott?) even if you decide not to run the trail it would be worth the drive to have a look around the area anyway.
    we will be meeting on bloody basin rd exit off I-17, just a shade west on the dirt rd to get off the exit ramp. i'm thinking between 8-9 am

    Hey guys I'm out for this one. Even if the 40 is done by then I've got something else that's come up for that day. We'll have to catch up on the next one.

    WHOA SLOW DOWN THERE RUSH! Just cause I'm into collectables don't mean you gotta go slammin me about it. I've been waiting for this convention to come to Phoenix for years. I've got one of the cleanest rarest examples of a 1996 Snowie the polar bear with blue nose stitching in the entire friggin country. I can't miss this show, I'm meeting a potential buyer there. If the deal goes down I'll have enough for those new Tera 60's.

    Tell her to get my 60's ordered and I'll give her the drop ship address. Once I get the confirmation I'll meet her at an undisclosed rendesvous point to make the trade.

    i pretty much count everyone out until anyone actually shows the day of a run, but me and rush are still doin it.

    on a side note, i will be posting info on an epic run i will be doing solo, i wouldnt expect anyone to join me for a 6 day trip but i'll give my route and times for anyone who wants to join up/meet me on a leg of it.

    All I have to say to that is "photodocument your trip!" :D
    That's the kind of wheeling I would love to do. So for now, I'll live vicariously
    through you.
