So I'm new to this, what can be expected at this RockFest... sounds like a ton of fun.... and of coarse some trouble haahh

January 14th, 2010, 19:27
Search for Rockfest 2009 or look at the past events forum. there's pics still posted. Rockfest is an annual event for XJ'ers to get together, wheel, swap lies- I mean stories, and just have a generally good time. Many will camp for 2-3 days.

January 14th, 2010, 20:01
Nice move. Would really like to wheel table mesa. http://www.dakotacom.net/~jeepster/tipshades.gif

VJC just sponsored a "Wheeling 101" clinic at TM this weekend. If you want to see what some of the trails look like, check out the pictures thread at www.virtualjeepclub.com (http://www.virtualjeepclub.com)
Trails run this weekend included LT, UT, Predator, Raw Deal, Anaconda.

March 30th, 2010, 14:59
Counting the days, joanzin to wheel with some of you. Heck Ive only met a handful of you guys on this board..

March 30th, 2010, 16:47
Geoff, you've got a nice looking rig. Looking forward to seeing it in person. 7 days till I'm there.

April 1st, 2010, 10:17
I've got a bunch of firewood I can bring down. I cut way too much a few years ago and it needs to burn this year.

April 1st, 2010, 17:52
I pulled down a fence at my daughters house a month ago. Lots of wood slats. I'll be bringing a bunch

April 2nd, 2010, 18:26
Question posed: i've got no lockers but 33s. that mean i cant do any medium trail runs?

Answer: That is correct, for the official runs only.
The purpose of the official runs is to provide the most opportunity for the greatest number of rigs to complete a particular trail with the least opportunity for carnage.
You may run any wildcat run that you would like.
For an example, I am locked f&r on 33's. I have run the hard trails on other occasions. I do not meet the min's for the official hard trails even though I know I can run them. I will do a wildcat run on at least 1 hard trail during the weekend.


April 3rd, 2010, 17:09
Okay that sounds fine with me. Its my first time wheeling with a group so Ill be taking it easy anyway. Thanks.

April 6th, 2010, 20:49

April 6th, 2010, 20:58
Does anyone know if Verizon cell phones have service in the camp area?

April 6th, 2010, 22:00

Directions to camp are in the 1st couple posts in the Official Event thread. I'll be posting some directional signs along the road after I arrive and get my camp set up.

April 6th, 2010, 22:04

Hay guys, I made it as far as Flagstaff & my Duramax Allison craped. Any leads as to a good tranny guy in Flagstagg & tranny parts in Phoenix? Still trying to make it. Thanks, Thom-406-261-9498.

April 7th, 2010, 07:19
Just talked to FlaxXJ. He has talked with tcharon and they have a plan in mind.

Tom, the Good Sam Club (nationwide RV club) endorses Cottman and Aamco transmission shops and the GSC offers discounts to members. Sorry to hear of your troubles. Hopefully it's an easy/quick fix. Good luck.

April 7th, 2010, 07:54
Mud, I have one of those air matress compressors to fill mine. Your welcome to borrow it!

Yes there is the airdown if you ever go up there. But for this event there is alot of room at the camp site. Follow the road turns to dirt go all the way to the power lines after power lines there will be a Y in the road that is were you head left and follow till you see the camp site on the right side of road after you go thro a gate.

April 7th, 2010, 14:28

Please bring some firewood. According to John there is not alot to be scrounged like in Florence, so if everyone can bring a bundle or 2 we should be just fine.

I am all packed and ready to go, heading out OH-DARK-THIRTY in morning.

C Ya There!!!!!!

April 7th, 2010, 19:19

Hey guys! Saw some of you out at table mesa this saturday! I was there and I wish I had planned on the weekend but have some family in town but they went shopping so i went to table mesa with some people. I was out there with the dirt bike guys and had a u-joint failure as soon as I got off the highway? I knew you guys were out there so I went on the prowl for a Joint. So i wandered into the NAXJA area and asked for anyone who had a u-joint.. and sure enough I got one from someone on here? Who was that? I am not the best on names! You guys also had some carnage on the trail with the big water hole? Terminator?

I was with the white cherokee with street tires who thought it was a good idea to go into the deep water hole.. after second thoughts we didn't hit it.

I saw a bunch of you guys I was the guy in the Patriot Blue Cherokee with the snorkel with no top.. haha Well anyways hope you guys had a good time down there!

OH YA! I left an old pair of Ray-Ban gold frames sunglasses on the Left side of terminator near the deep water hole... So if you happened to have grabbed them let me know!!

Just got home. I am glad to hear all had a good time. Thanks to all that attended and helped make this a GREAT event as usual!!!!!


April 11th, 2010, 18:31
JUST walked in the door...GREAT time had by me and my passenger. Blew a trailer tire on the way home, but other than that an awesome weekend with no carnage! for me anyway!:patriot:

April 11th, 2010, 21:19
Got home a while ago doing house stuff now(does that crap ever stop????) had a great time and the city called and complained about the water going into the sewer from our house when the little girl and I showered must be the concentrated mud...:laugh:

We are going to have to do this again maybe in like a month or so..


April 11th, 2010, 21:36
Great times. Thanks for all who helped with the planning, etc.

April 11th, 2010, 22:45
i got home this afternoon but not without carnage. i went with kracker and his lady+kids to the main river crossing so that the kids could play in the river. while we were there a bunch of illegals showed up for a picnic. they crossed the fence and crossed the river (hey nothing new for them but thats besides the point). on our way out of there my jeep came disconnected from my truck. the hitch pin was missing! the tow bar folded under the jeep bending it to a pretzel and bent the crap out of the bumpers tow bar bracket. thankfully kracker was there and drove my jeep home for me while i drove the truck. THANKS kracker for saving the day! other than that, no other carnage for me that i know of.

April 11th, 2010, 22:54
Wow, That could have ended very badly... Glad you guys were able to get it home safe and sound..

April 11th, 2010, 22:56
theres a nice dent now in the ladder of my cabover now. im sure it shoved the camper into the front of the truck box as well. i will know more tomorrow. but for now its bed time
