    I have found some awesome links to things I never really gave thought to . I have the trail book sitting in my console , and didn't think to really open it up . Looking at some of the pictures at the avjc site , I think there are plenty more trails to run :D

    The book with all the trails in it . Or just look at some of these Clicky

    I have run some of these , but I think wheeling the others will be fun , bring good experience , and a change of pace . Thats just local too . In the book I have , there are things all over the state we all should run on those long weekends when we get a Monday or Friday off .

    There's a fun trail that starts right behind the gas station by where you guys camped on turkey day and ends at the desert bar. The start of it is kind of washed out, but my buddy made it down in an F-350 open/open so I'm sure you could make it up in just about anything. I have the whole trail saved in the gps if someone wants to take a look at it. I think it's called red rock trail in one of the books.

    I have the second one.:haha: So much for trying to stay on the same page! I've been dying to run the Bill Williams River, but the road has been closed forever because of a huge washout. While on my way down to meet you guys in Parker, I noticed the cable was finally down and I talked to a guy at the entrance and he said only half of the trail was open so if they continue to work on the trail that may be an option soon as well. You can turn that trail into a pretty cool loop.

    You want to try the easier Parker trails, or go somewhere else? I would suggest the Quartzsite area, but you'll be dodging snowbirds on quads all day long. The back way to the desert bar is a fun ride, plus you can hit the Grey Eagle Mine trail if you want to stay out longer. There are a lot of cool sightseeing trails, plus you have the Desert Bar!:D

    Up for anything mild to moderate for the group as a whole to agree on . The big boys have their play areas already . BTW , I haven't gotten the skidplate boxed yet , been kinda busy after work lately running around . Why don't you send me a pic of your crossmember , and let me double check before I do :thumb:

    I won't be near my truck until next week, so you'll have to sit tight for a while. I think Parker is the better choice because it has the Desert Bar and more people are familiar with the area. There are plenty of moderate trails for everyone to enjoy. We just need a date. Not too far off, I'm thinking end of Jan- beginning of Feb?

    Over here we've been running the >8/10 trails, some have been through Hammers. The bigger challenge might be the 5-7 hours of Highway. Going home is sometimes more of a challenge, if you know what I mean.:D

    That's why we're talking about doing the easier stuff, just a chance for everyone to get together and have a good time without worrying about how they are going to get home. The turkey day Parker trip is the thrash session. This would be more of a desert tour. You could probably do it in 2wd with a locker if you were willing to take a strap or get a running start on the soft stuff. That book is the book that has the trail I was talking about in it. I don't have mine here, and I don't remember the exact name of the trail. It starts off of HWY 95 behind a gas station and takes you toward The Desert Bar and Grey Eagle Mine.
