RUN: May 4th, Sat.
RUN: May 4th, Sat. Moss Wash, Hualapai Mountains. Meet at 9:00 a.m. leave 9:30. For those not going to Sedona, this is a great run and a favorite of many members. Meet at Love's Gas Station on I-40 east of Kingman at milepost 59. Trailer parking. There will be two options as we head toward the Gold King Mansion, Moss Wash or the road. From the road it's possible to watch the action down below in the wash. We're planning on lunch at the mansion and if interested, dinner at the Hualapai Resort. Very good food at the restaurant with a view window of elk and deer feeding. Quite a treat to watch.

RATED: The wash is rated a 4 with quite a bit of brush, the road a 3. The overall trail a strong 3+.

CONTACT: leave a post here
GUESTS: Always welcome!

This a very cool trail if have not seen the Mansion mine it is one of a kind.

Trip report:

Moss Wash( hard way). The Walapai 4 Wheelers had a Jamboree few weeks back and the trails is harder with all the Jeeps digging in. We had 7 Jeeps show up today and right of the trailer one Jeep was DOA with a major oil leak in the front dif, I think his HP9" has an inner race that holds the seal crack. Few weeks ago he had that axle pull out of the housing and I think its done. Well that left 6. so we started down the county road that lead to moss. We had a stock Zuk with us, he went the easy way with one of our trail leaders riding along to be sure he made it to the Manson. 5 Jeeps going the hard way. Most times the hard way has no tire tracks, but like I said must have been alot of Jeeps and it was well worn. We get to the "Oh ***** rock. First real obstical that like to eat axles. Joan bounds over it in JJ blue like it is nothing, for her, on 40''s. Next up is the other custom built rock crawler, lime green and very sweet ride. Goes over like it aint there. Next our club member in his Jeep pickup. open front, locked rear on 33"s. Gets hung on the belly and about takes out his rear drive line. Checking it out after he scaped and bounced his way up and over. The drive line was bent about half an inch out of round and had a helical groove like a barber shop pole all the way up that drive line. Next up was a Zuk on 33"s locked and lifted. I warned him in line that the center line only a 3.5' ledge is harder than it looks. Sharp on the top with soft dirt on the top and dug out at the bottom even more now. Right used to be the easy way but now it is worse, dug out. Left is a V notch that is now the easier way, Just do not slip in. The Zuk tried straight up. he used to much right foot and yep snapped the right axle. Now a three wheeler he tries left but cant get into the notch. Tries right and snaps the left axle. No he is two by four and stuck. on the right. Time to winch. 50 more feet is an easier obstical but not in 2x4 winched again. at this point he is done and takes the only escape route and goes home. now we are 5. I took the V notch right at the top the left side slips, but i get lucky and my rock slider grabs the rock. back off and move more left, up and over.

There is extra credit obsticals on this hard way and there were no tracks on most. Our one member in this green rig goes through like the friken hammers, was fun to watch him assault thes 6 foot rocks .

Just before the manson is another extra credit 4+ thing that is under cut sharp and just hard. He did not make it.

The manson: we pulled in to eat lunch and 20 side by sides pulled in as well as 8 bikes. BUSY day at the mansoon.

The green buggy turned back as he did not want to go to the top of the mountain. to have to drive it down the highway to get back to the his trailer. Down to 4: therest of the ride was nice as you get into the pines and easier too. The stock Zuk made it all the way, the easy way but none the less he made it on street tires and a shackle lift no lockers. he did get pushe a few time when he got hung up. Its so light just a few people could push him through.

We had dinner at the lodge. great burgers and drinks.:tea:

I think Joan said that she plans to do one more club run on this before it gets to hot. I would guess it would be at the end of May. Since the club meeting is the third tuesday of the month.

The time now is 12:48 AM.
