If you're familiar with the valley, think of a triangle. Take Dynamite E from Pima till it ends at the Tonto entrance. Hang a left and go curvy road straight till that ends at Camp Creek. Rio Verde will be on your right (totally barricaded) - go left and have a ball all the way up to before you hit Bartlett Dam Rd. it's in between there somewhere. Then head west a mile or so to the transmission lines, then play on all the trails between there and where you started at Pima and Dynamite.

Here's a vid. Go play. Don't squish the quads. : )


TRAILS - On this one, at about the 2:21 mark, I see a new trail, hang a right, and decide to go check it out!

Been ridin trails on anything that moves since I was a kid. When your wheeling (particularly by yourself!) in a vehicle you also drive to work, ALWAYS keep in the front of your mind, this question: Can I back out of this place, that I'm at, right now? (Without mangling my daily driver)

When the answer becomes, "I don't know", you may JUST have gone too far. : )

Well, where I was "at" at the end there, was more of a crossroad. It's fairly easy going in and; I was very mindful of the stone walls inches from my nice black paint. Especially the ones by the bends - so I knew it would be tough, but probably doable (cant memorize everything) to put the trans in R and crawl back.

- Trying to find a way to playback / post this in reverse - (gotta look cool)

Crossroad: Keep going? Jeep's already got tons of desert pinstripes anyway, but from plants, not stone. I walked up another 50 yards and, if I was open to adding desert rock stripes, or maybe a spotter would have helped, I could have kept going at least that much further. But where I stopped, if I had gone 10 yards further I'd have to commit.

So yep, I threw it in reverse and floored it all the way back out without putting a scratch on it! : ) Uh. No. It was a painstaking and methodical (almost autocorrected to mythological - it was that too) few minutes. Not a lot of fun when you're just wondering which panel is going to take it first. : )

Impressed myself. Did get out with zero damage.

Lastly, if you're like me. You're ALWAYS looking for places along the trail, even if it is for an 11 point turn, to flip it around. : ) Thus, thumbnail. That spot was only about 100 yards, and 2 turns back. Not the whole 1.8 miles. : )

- EnWJoy -



Yeah - between app crashes and wifi static, it's a 8/+€#!!

EnWJoy the trail!

Kinda the first part of the Camp Creek Vid:


Fun place!

TRAILS - 1st few miles w/ the new 2", shocks, ball joints, engine mounts, etc.. Been here, and thought it would be a fun trail to just check out the new feel on some relatively flat stuff. Just to warm it up a little.

Cool scenery too when the stupid auto light thingy on the iPad can keep up.

And, be careful out there when you're in a big black Grand Cherokee. Folks'll sometimes try to run right into ya. WJs are pretty stealthy. Sound nothing like a quad, but can go lots of the same places.

And oh yeah, from the tight squeeze vid, this was some cool dark green/brown moss on the walls:

Have you joined the Azcvj? Its free, huge community of wheelers, most are phx and south. I think about all here are in it?

If you wheel alone its a place you can leave a trip startand end. that way if say something goes FUBAR. someone will know where to start. pluss if you get stuck in the middle of no where its going to be azvjc that ends up out there in the end many times anyway.

I
Pluss as you wheel more you will try harder things, going with a group that knows trails well can get that Jeep through alot and when it does get stuck, easy to just strap to the jeep in front. If you are not worried about the body to much, it would be fun to see what a quadra drive can do. But I have no idea how expossed things are under it, what does break when pushed in rocks, no idea.

I have wheeled with the Naxja(Northamerican Xj's. In moab they can climb.

Hey, thanks a bunch 222Doc! Just joined and looked around a little. Awesome site! And I'm sure I'll learn a ton more about the AMAZING State we live in,,and places to go play. Looking forward to that. I learned recovery on HUMMERS before there were H2s. I was selling those, and Jeeps through the WJ Body style. So that included the last of the new old Cherokees and the advent of the H2. Been to a two full day driving / training event at HUMMER's 380+ acre proving ground in Mishwauka IN - all angles / conditions. Just a great great time!! Couple hundred pics at Google+. Bought my 1st digital camera for the trip and, when I wasn't driving, went ape $#!+ with the thing! - holy crap am I wordy -

Anyway, I know all the right equipment, spotters, and vehicles can make my trips way more, I think most would say.... SMART. ? : ) And I do hope to meet some folks of like mind to join on the trails. But for now, I'm just enjoying the gifts my Jeep has given me and being kind of careful about it. Kind of, a little. I know my Jeep and its treated me well by just working perfectly while I've owned it - 12 years (bought in 01). My little 14 year old black WJ's got a very bright future. So much to do, so little dough. Probably a winch, sliders, lights, exhaust - holy crap is that expensive -

Long long post but my very favorite part of the HUMMER stuff (2nd to the driving of course) was seeing the instructors' personal vehicles and talking with them. Giant beautifully built up Wranglers for each of them. They worked for HUMMER, but they were totally cool Jeep guys who, like me, prefer Jeeps to, we'll... Anything. As I was driving an H1 up a trail named "The Elevator"', I told one of the guide/ instructors how I'd like to do all this stuff, and I know my WJ can do some stuff, but THIS? Its stock. no way... The dude asked if I had the 4.7 and Quadradrive. Yep. He grinned, laughed a little and says, "yeah you can do 95% of this stuff with a stock one of those." Come again HUMMER guy??? "Yeah, no problem, ya'd just need a snorkel for the other 5%". Plenty more but. - holy crap am I hungry - see ya.

it gets very expensive no matter what it is. That year has IFS as well? so, i would bet it cost more to lift than a Jeep.

Azvjc will give the most activity of a "club", in your area. Naxja i s the waggon national page. I ran with them by chance in Moab this year.

In the forum there Azvjc. There is a section for " I am going alone". I see people use it.

Exploring trails can get additive. Then you want new to you trails, then they get harder, then you want bigger tires, lifts.
it never ends. My 35"s look tinny in a field of jeeps on 40"s. but going that much gets into crazy money real fast. wear and tear costs too.

Amen to that Doc. With boats the condition is diagnosed as twofootitis. : ) with Jeeps I guess I've already got twoinchitis. Love my new 2" BB, but already find myself shopping to go higher. My budget just needs to catch up with me first.

I'll be looking for people to go out with because I know things do go wrong out there. And trail riding is admittedly safer with numbers. That's why, as fun as it is by my lonesome, there's always that little voice asking me, "what are you going to do if you snap something RIGHT HERE?"

With GPS, getting lost doesn't worry me, breaking down still does though. Physically, I'd fine but what an extra pain in the a$$ to go it alone after a come apart. I guess I'm just walking the line for now between doing ALL the things I'd like to at least attempt, and being just careful enough to keep everything intact.

To your point - yep always wanting bigger better badder trails. I see em, I want them, and lots I know I could do - but - I REALLY don't want to be That Guy, so I have to choose wisely. I know myself though and the temptation of 1st timing a drop or a climb to get a cool pic may soon get the better of me, hope not. When you're wheelin by, it's cool to laugh at me and my flipped over WJ, and even spit. - Just not on the Jeep. Thanks.
