Hey everybody! Probally too late but I'm inviting anybody that wants to do a day run up to Wickenburg and back. Going to go on the Castle Hot Springs Rd. Then over to the Constellation Mine Rd on into Wickenburg for lunch. Were leaving from the Wildhorse bar ( on 99th. Ave/ Lake Pleasant Parkway) around 9 a.m. ish. I have just gotten my Right rear trailing arm rebuilt and have only put hyway miles on it. Tommorow's run will all be on bladed and graded dirt roads.If you want to go give me a call or text and we could wait if your running a little behind! my # is 623-221 3389 probally be best to text as I can't hear my phone above my car on the freeway!

Well the rain was dumping on me as I pulled into the wild horse bar, as it was letting up Dalton pulled up next to me. We discussed the weather and the forecast for the rest of the day. Dalton mentioned that he knew another way to Crown King. No traffic, Well of course I'm going to say yes to another awesome trip! No Wickenburg we're going to Crown King! I don't recall ever going this way, but it was smooth and zero traffic! The road was very scenic and your grandmas grand marquee could have made it. We actually came in to Crown King behind the Towers Mountain! Just beautiful scenery. I can;t understand why people don't jump at the chance to explore this great states back country! Had lunch at the Mill. 76 degrees and humming birds feeding, with a slight breeze.
I told Dalton that I've been working on my rail for so long that I almost forgot why we go out into our spectacular state! Today vividly reminded me of all the magnificent beauty our state has to show us! Definitely a good run! Hope to see you all out on the trail!

I went on the 101 to Cleator about 7mo ago... There were a few ugly ugly spots … one spot had a small canyon!!! with out thinking about it I punched it and jumped it.. I was in the rail. the landing cost me a tire and a few more dents.. when the others looked at it they spent about an hour + filling the gap with rocks to make a bridge to drive over. by the time they got it kinda filled there were 6 cars backed up on the other side Even then it was hard going across.. Yes I would go again.. not in the baja. don't think I will Jump the small canyon again.
