Here are a few pics from today's FITS V Friday Run... Bulldog Canyon.

The view from this year's campground at Usery Park looking north. The desert is really green and the cactus are plump from all the rain we had this winter....

Image

First time on the trail with the sway bar disconnected. Not too bad for a 2" coil spacer lift using the stock coils if I may say so myself....

Image


Here's Silverdiesel coming down a rocky section of the trail (check out his new "custom" made rock rails)....

Image

First to suffer trail carnage for the event. Can't go too far with a busted valve stem. No time to get it fixed, so I'll be sitting out Saturday's run in camp since I won't have a spare....

We figured we'd go with Todd on the Ajax trail since everyone else was doing the other trail. Three vehicles, four people, two dogs:
Image

The remains of some unnamed mill:
Image

Todd going back up the rocky stretch towards Superior, just to see if it was as interesting going up as it was coming down (apparently it wasn't):
Image

Not so difficult that we were ever in danger of breakage, but difficult enough to hold our interest. And Mary's writing a story about the refrigerator in the cabin:
Image

...and 50 pounds of 1/4 plate steel. Cool time.

A great weekend everyone. Nice meeting some new folks, too!

Here's some I took in no particular order:

Image
We camped near a town. Wish I could remember which way it was.

Image
Post run nap headquarters

Image
Tom getting his toes wet

Image
AZ sunset

Image
Russ' rapids

Image
Poseur du jour

Image
Some strange geology

Image
Imagine the force to turn sedimentary rock 90 degrees

Image
The wildflowers are going to be insane in a week or two.

Image
Nearing the high point. Killer view west.

Cholla Camp. Aptly named. Can I borrow your comb?

Ernie, what did you do all the time you were in Antartica? "Played Stump" He says.

Silverdiesl and I got a late start Saturday due to stupid work and me having to get a busted valve stem fixed. The plan for us was to met at camp and just sit around telling tall tails until everybody got back off the trail. Instead we got the bright idea we'd better head out to Box Canyon as the official FITS V Rescue Team in case Neatus and crew needed help finding their way home. We made it to the end of Box Canyon and only had to wait 30 minutes for them to show up. From there we headed back to camp at break neck speed. We took a detour to avoid heavy traffic on US60 (LOL... that's where the rescue team took over).

The dinner, raffle and sitting around the campfire rounded out the day.

This morning I showed up at camp to get Silverdiesl moving. I helped him cook his breakfast and pack up his camp. By then everyone had left except Neatus and crew who were still playing "stump".

We swung by my house to pick up Beth. We all went to lunch before Silverdiesel finally called FITS V officially over.

Thanks everyone!!! Beth and I had a great time and we couldn't of asked for a better weekend. Special thanks to Neatus and his crew for putting together a fun AZ LOST JEEPS event!!

Here's a few pics I took:

Silverdiesl leading me through Box Canyon...

Some of the guys watching Edwin squeeze his big Jeep through a tight spot....

Silverdiesel's first morning cup of coffee provided by moi....

Actually I think this would be a better comparison:

Every time I see a picture of someone climbing that rock in a Libby I think of the AZ club sticker :)

Hey, if National Geographic can rearrange the pyramids on their cover why worry about a li'l cactus? :P Personally I think it was just to make it have more of an 'Arizona' feel...

Rocks and metal valve stems are always an issue. If you don't have a TPMS go to the short rubber valve stems. If you do it's going to happen again. If you don't mind the start up warning from the TPS, change them all.

If you do a lot of rock crawling you might put some valve stems in your trail bag. Not real hard to change out if you have a high lift so you can break the bead.
