Re: Official Event Thread

So....... I don't have rights to update the 1st post, so I will be using subsequent posts to update. Please try to keep this thread free from clutter. If you have any questions or suggestions, either post them in a different thread, start a new thread, or PM me. Thanks.

Wed- 4/7 Organizers will start to set up camp

Thu- 4/8 unofficial runs. Anything goes

Fri- 4/9 Official runs to be scheduled for varying degrees of difficulty. Minimum requirements will be adhered to.

Sat 4/10 Official runs to be scheduled for varying degrees of difficulty. Minimum requirements will be adhered to
............. Potluck style dinner. Bring a main dish for yourself and a side dish to share.

Sun 4/11 Unofficial runs. Anything goes

This will not preclude anyone from doing a wildcat run. Find a leader, find someone to go with, and go have fun.
The official runs will be arranged to get the maximum number of rigs through a particular series of trails with the least possibility of carnage.

Camp site coordinates and link to map will be posted soon.

Stay Tuned.

Brian ,John, Where do we stand on needed permits? The out of towners need a little time to plan ahead and make arrangements.

Re: Official Event Thread

The only permit/s required are a State Trust Land permit if anyone plans to run Raw Deal (stock friendly). There will not be any official runs on Raw Deal. This trail also has a limit of 15 people (not rigs) at any particular time.

No permits are required for camping or the trails that are on BLM. I've been working on it. Been very busy at work.

Official run info will be posted within the next week.

Re: Official Event Thread

It is HIGHLY recommended that all AZ off-roaders obtain an AZ State Trust Land permit. Many of the trails that we use regularly impact AZ State Trust Land and it is in everyone's best interest to have a permit.

You can obtain a permit from:

You can always go down the office too. You dont have to mail it in. My wife went and got mine and two other peoples at the same time. So you can send some one for you as long as you fill out the for with all info and sign it. The person doesnt need the others I.D. Just letting you know it might be helpful.

Re: Official Event Thread

Information Update:

The BOD and volunteers have been watching the status of the Agua Fria river for the past couple of weeks. The river has been flowing deep and wide during this time. At current, the river is about 3 ft deep at the road crossing and has been running at 4 ft. Jeeps and other vehicles have been using the crossing to reach the trails. There have been several recoveries of vehicles trying to cross the river that became stranded in the middle.

I have been monitoring the NWS water gauge located at Rock Springs (about 8 miles north). The water level has been dropping but not very fast. In anticipation of further rain forcast for this week, and the possibility of snow run-off I am building a contingency plan of having Rockfest in the Florence Junction area. The BOD has contacted AZ State Land Dept and they have agreed to handle a group permit application in an expidited manner due to our situation. This group permit would allow Rockfest camping to be on State Trust Land off Cottonwood Rd.

I need your help ASAP. I am posting a poll in another thread to determine the interest in holding the event in FJ due to the weather situation.
**** I also need 20 people to provide their name, address, and phone number so that we can complete the AZ STL permit and get it walked through ASAP. This is merely to have the permit available in the case that the location is changed. Please PM your information ASAP

PLEASE, do not post your comments in this thread. Please use the poll thread or PM me your comments concerning this situation. I will continue to monitor the river situation on a daily basis and have plans to visit the area to monitor.

Thank you for your understanding.

JP

Re: Official Event Thread

how did the roads leading to the campsite fare with the storms we had a while ago? are they still passable for a large motorhome or a truck with cabover?

Re: Official Event Thread

Messages that I found on other forums say the roads are rough but passable as long as you take your time with big rigs.

Re: Official Event Thread

Drove the road in to camp today. It has some ruts, but take it easy and there won't be any problems.
