March would not have worked for me anyway. Spring Training takes priority. April could work before it gets too hot out.

I'm open for anything at the moment. The 4th is my Birthday and that could be a fun birthday weekend of wheeling.

I'm bust until March 5th. Then, I need to four link the rear. So, I'm looking at the 1st or 2nd weekend in April.

I'd love to be an active southwest member, but I have a stock bronco and I hate body damage. I'm also underage so I can't go to any bars. That said, if we camp somewhere I'd be totally up for it if I could do a ride along with someone. My brother has a cool built up jeep (a lengthened jeep frame, roll cage and no body with 327/turbo350/np205/ dana 44/12 bolt locked/locked) I might be able take out on a trail as long as his 2wd f250 can make it to a spot where he can park the trailer. Is Sycamore creek just too easy? I've heard the rock gardens can be pretty cool. It'd be my place of choice.

yes you can come. we do alot of runs that a stock bronco can do I did martinez cabin with a bunch of stock jeep libertys. you wont have to worry about body damage. Sycomore is ok for a day trip once youve gone out to FJ sycomore isnt worth going to overnight.

Might I suggest camping here.


From Phoenix:
-Take 60 East to 79 South
-Head South on 79 for 5.3 miles
-The "flag pole" parking lot is on the left
-This is the start of Cottonwood Canyon road (dirt road)
-The turn is about .3 miles past mile marker 146 (when heading this direction)
-Once on Cottonwood Canyon drive about 3 mile down and look on the right hand side for a big open area set back off the road. That's would be the 1st choice for a good camping spot. If it's already being used head down the road about .25 miles and look left that would be the 2nd good choice. If you go past a fence, you have gone to far.

A little info:
If you haven't been out this way before, the last stop for food is the Bashes in Gold Canyon and the last stop for fuel is a Texaco (I think) that has a McDonalds in it. It's also located in Gold Canyon. *FYI-Gold Canyon is the stretch of 60 between Florence Junction and 79.

State Trust Land permit ---> http://www.land.state.az.us/programs/natural/recreation_permit.htm

My $0.02

I don't know what I'll be doing then (work related) but if I'm around I'll be there.
