    Crown King Run Saturday (AUGUST 12th, 2017)

    Weeeeeeeeeelllllllllll it sure seems like it has been a looooooonnnnnnngggg time since I have been on a run... So, I am planning a trek to Crown King (back way from Lake Pleasant) on August 12th, 2017... If you’re interested in joining us, we will meet at New River Road & Carefree Highway on the Northwest corner at 8:30 AM... Woooooo Hoooooo...... We will be eating lunch in CK, you can choose The Saloon, the sandwich shop or the Mill up on the hill, or just hang with us until we are ready to leave… Oh, and also stop and get some fudge too at the General Store for the ride down the hill.... Muuuahahahahahahahah.... I am setting a limit of 12 vehicles for this run. I have heard that some of the obstacles might have changed, hmmm maybe better for JEEPS.... MUHAHAHAHAHAHA.... Once everyone who is going is at the meet up zone, we will take off to the air down spot where those of us who want to, will air down, disconnect or whatever we do to our Jeeps to make them trail ready.... Plan on an all-day fun trail ride...

    COMMUNICATIONS: Talk in frequency will be 147.240 + offset PL Tone 162.2, once we leave the meet up spot we will use SIMPLEX 147.520

    If you have any questions please text/call at 602.290.3781 or e-mail Harry.

    Saturday weather: 82F for the high/61F for the low.50% to 80% PRECIP possible

    What your vehicle will need:

    Off road tires are recommended,
    A lift of 2" or more is recommended on some of the obstacles,
    There are bypasses for all the obstacles if you just don't want to do them,
    Enough water for all persons in your vehicle,
    I plan on having lunch in Crown King so bring your own lunch and/or snacks for your peeps in your jeeps to munch on,
    A to go box with essentials,
    A well behaved attitude as well as PATIENCE when on the trail,
    Hey, Maybe we might have some mud/rain??? Wooooo Hoooooo....
    Thank you & let's have a FUN & SAFE run...

    Back way to CK

    Count me in please.

    If there ends up being a spot left I'd like to invite a friend who is not 'yet' a ham to join us. Might be a great opportunity to introduce new people to the dark side.
