Hey all! Just finished up washing all of the mud off my rail, what a fun run! There were four cars in all, a Baja and three rails. Subaru, Ford, and two VW air cooled. Saturday looked like the skys would open any minute and dround us, but it never rained on us. For the most part the dirt roads were well maintained and we were making good time.It all started to go south on FR 677 while not a paticulary rough or diffucult road, it meandered through a grassy valley with lots of Angus cattle (steak anyone?) and several gates Always leave them as you found them! It was a little rocky and muddy in a few places. As we started up the hill we saw a quad and a side by side the quad was missing a lower control arm bolt, so I opened my nut and bolt box and lo and behold I had just what he needed! Feels good to help out a fellow off roader. Higher and higher we drive, black clouds all around us but no rain! As we get to the summit the road has degraded to a boulder stewn trail covered in a thick sticky clayee mud it sticks to everything. everyone's cars are coated in this thick sticky goop! So it was decided to turn around and find a camp some where lower, as were heading back the Ford powered rail is pulled over and informed the group that he was starting to overhead, not good, upon further inspection it was discovered that a meatball sized mud clot had made it's way between the fan and radiator, burning up the fan's motor! As soon as he would get hot we would pull over and let it cool down. We finally found a really cool camp spot, started a fire and cooked our diner, the whole time everybody was telling stories talking about the days run and laughing! One by one every one peeled away from the fire to sleep and get ready for the next days run which was wide open with no agenda! After gassing up in Cordes Junction we took dirt roads to almost Black Canyon City where the Baja broke his Left spindle! Thankfully he was carreing a spare and was back moving in less than 6 beers lol I wish I was abale to take a bunch of pictures but I totally spaced it. Here is one of the Baja being repaired.

Kenny did a great job leading us out, and he would've been sitting in the hot springs if our cars weren't all scrapping the ground from mud build up and I had a few more gallons of fuel. The trip was great and we still did over 200miles so I can't wait to see what next year brings

looks great I love being in the desert after a nice rain sorry I missed it I stayed closer to home and found a nice trail down to the Colorado just past hoover dam in AZ. I haven't had much time to work on getting the buggy street legal yet. I hope to do this next year also the Crown King run later this year.

Thanks for the pic's! no worries about the hot springs the fire at camp felt mighty fine. Everyone made it home under their own power and am already looking forward to the next run, I love taking new trails that I've never been on.
