man you guys are killing me with these scheduled runs. I never seem to luck out on the dates. I'd love to do this run in my 62 as I'm a west-sider anyways but I'll be in Moab that whole week before! y'all have fun.

Tired of missing scheduled ROTM? Pick a month for your ROTM and substantially increase your odds of making it.:D I believe September is available :idea:

I am still in. I think I will just meet everyone in Wickenburg. Since we live so far SE now it makes sense. I still will probably bring my trailer. Silly for one night but if I go tent only I have to transfer gear and I'm lazy.

Who else is camping?

FYI for the group. I wanted to clear up any confusion about this trip.

This will be an overnight, we will not cover everything in 1 day and will camp most likely in a large wash about midway through. Sunday we will pass by the bus and the old ranch graves.

If anyone is not able to overnight and wanted to just do the day trip, it will cover the old mining town of Swansea and a run down to the Bill Williams river.

Crossing this river is still a question, I have been assured that we can cross east of the pipeline whereas the normal crossing point is too deep at least it was on the 21st of April. Either way there is an alternative route to complete the trip if we are unable to cross.

If there any still any questions feel free to post or PM me.

PS, this trip is very trailer friendly.

Thanks

Gotta drop out but for a worthy reason. My kids baseball team will be in the state championship series that weekend. I grew up in Parker. Many fond memories exploring the mines in the area. Swansea was particularly cool because it descended at about a 45deg angle with a rickety ladder. Enjoy

Thanks for arranging a great run!

I missed the restaraunt but found a car wash and de-gassed the truck bed.

No flames - cheated death once more :skull::rofl:

Pics when I get home.

James and Christine - thanks for a great run. 100+ Miles off road is always a great time. Chris @Louder good call on camping at the mouth of the slot canyon. Glad the clouds gave way to some amazing star gazing.
