I believe Tim is talking about a 5-point scale. Please note that some books use a 10-point scale, so the 2 rating on a 5-point scale would be a 4 on a 10-point scale.

There are two dry wash crossings on FR41 that can be difficult depending on how recently the area was flooded. At these points, it is nice to have skids and sliders, but probably not necessary now (it hasn't rained in awhile).

The more traffic that goes through the area, the easier the crossings become because people will move some of the large rocks out of the way. Once the next rainstorm hits, the wash crossings fill with rocks again.

Don't forget to purchase a state land permit, as you'll need this for FR41 (Table Mesa - east of I-17). Hope to see you all there.

Looks like we will have a good showing of trucks on Saturday. [ThumbsUp]

Even better - the strong drivetrains will outnumber the weak. laugh Even though this is a REALLY mild trail and could probably be done in 2wd with a good driver from what I've heard.

Plan on bringing water, lunch, water, and swim gear since we will encounter water which may need to be splashed around in. cool Also, don't forget to bring plenty of water. [Spit]

Meet at the Chevron on Carefree Hwy & I-17 @ 8:00am to leave by 8:15am for Table Mesa Rd.

480-251-7976 for info or questions. If anyone wants to ride along and leave the driving to someone else, post up. I know there will be room.

Roster:
T-Ray
Conundrum
fangars
AZ-Ted
SoldierX (?)
DBAX (?)
Xtasy

fangars: We will definately be back home by 9:30pm. Hope to see ya there!

Any SWANKy guys gonna come out and show us how to properly "body surf" the Verde River while not spilling your ummm... "diet-caffeine free cola"? wink I'm not sure I can perform that delicate ballet as well as DR or Mud.

Just have one more skid to put on and I should be good to go. I have to drill and tap the bottom of the driver's side frame rail for one of the gas tank skid mounting holes.

I'll see you all on Saturday!!!

Just east of I-17 on the North Side. You can't miss it. We usually congregate on the west side of it near the carwash exit.

Thanks for posting the pictures AZBUMBLEBEE.

Yes, it was a good time - hot (115F), but good. It's a bummer that Conundrum had to turn back because of high coolant temps. T-Ray did a mod to the plastic on his front bumper, and Pluvo got a leaky tire. Other than that it was a damage free day.

SoldierX gets the Good Karma Award for rescuing a heat exhaustion victim near the bridge.

Here are a few pictures from today. I am sure that Fangars has much better shots...





EDIT: Edited to fix broken links.

Well, I found out I have a single core radiator. So I removed/cleaned thoroughly both the condensor and it, put back together and seems to stay cool, at least this morning. Too hot to work on it now.

Glad you all had a good trip! [Wave]

It was a hot one alright!

Nobody mentioned our stranded campers? We stopped at the ranger station at the Bartlett lake turnoff & verified that they sent help after the woman. I took over for Georgie & took the guy home. The plan was to take him to Banner Health, but he was coherent & wanted to drive himself to the hospital so he wouldn't have to walk home afterward.

I didn't take many pics, but here goes.

The obligitory group shot:


Tim & Lindsay (with Georgie on the far left):


Ted & Georgie:


Fangars & AZBumblebee:


The bridge:



Sorry, I had to include this one [LOL] :

I love that tank top, how to you get your whites so white?

Now I've got to figure out what I'm going to do tire wise.

Thanks for a great trip! It was definately HOT, but a great area with a lot of side trails to explore on a future trip in cooler weather.

Thanks to Ted for doing a great job leading and Georgie for hauling that guy back in to town. [ThumbsUp]

Apparently, after 3 years living in the desert, I have not figured out the whole sunscreen situation. [Finger] The water at the bridge was quite nice though. A lot of good areas out that way to camp (cooler weather of course).

If I had this to do over again I would position the trucks at the water line in the foreground to get the reflections.
This is a quick and dirty panorama I stitched together from the basic jpg's and not the raw files so there is less detail and a bit more noise but its good enough for the web I think.
If I tried to do this from the raw files it would take a month of sundays.

For the larger image .

I do not mind at all, as long as you don't use it for commercial purposes without my permission.
Here is the creative commons license terms.

Its a fairly liberal license, I am not one of those people who think my every image is solid gold. I see some people put the most stringent license on what have to be some of the worst or just terribly mundane images. I prefer people enjoy my work if at all possible.
I have more shots, I just don't have anytime as yet to go through them.
I will upload more soon, just not real soon.
