I'm not sure if this is posted in the right spot or not. Also no sure if the trail is doable. Last week I guess it was still underwater. Maybe someone can post up and give us an update on trail conditions. Anyways, here's what I'm thinking.

I'm thinking we can meet at Bush/Beeline at 6 or 7am. I'd like to be out around noon, but am not going to be rushing through it. I think we were out by then last time we ran it.

I'm guessing 33's and one locker would be okay.

I'll post up more info and the time to meet when I get some feedback of what you guys want to do.

See you on the trail,
Josh.

Any idea if there is still water out there? Doesn't bother me to go in and come out the same way.

Not a clue. Youre built well enough to take the route around the water arent you??

UNSTUCK
05-01-2007, 05:02 PM
Maybe, maybe not. I don't know where the water is. If the water is there, how deep would it be? Not passable, or just to dirty? Last time I went through there were a bunch of little water spots full of little fish.

i'll probably tag along if you guys dont mind. first left past the lake or farther up beeline?

UNSTUCK

We'll take the first left past the bush hiway, but we will meet at the intersection of the two. In the dirt parking lot, northeast corner.

Is 6am going to be good for everyone? Beat the heat.

not sure. Sometimes its deeper than the hood of a tj on 35s with 3.5 lift sometiems it barely comes over the rockers I havent been there in a grip but we have been gettin some moisture here so who knows. Its near the upper end where it gets really tight between two large bedrock formations about 3/4 of the way through.

Hows your jeep built?

ill most likley show up dennis this means you have too go aswell... if the water hole is passable then we can run it all the way threw if not then we will have too turn around at the water hole and turn around or depending on how well everyone is built can run the high line around...

Is there a spot to leave a trailer?

SHNIPE
05-03-2007, 09:23 AM
Yeah if you take the trailer to the lower entrance. Stop at the bush and ask the guys where the turn is or have someone show you. lots of people leave their trailers out there.

Youll make it around the left of the waterhole if not! Dunno how well everyone else is built but 33s and at least one locker will get you around the waterhole. Might hit a belly pan pretty good on one drop though.

UNSTUCK

I just can't think of where the water hole is. I guess we'll just have to find out.

Tallgaier, you can still meet at the intersection of the two highways with the rest of us. We'll turn into lower sicamore and air down while you unload. If we do make it all the way through the trail, we will end up coming out around the four peaks turn off. So you will either have to drive back up the freeway with us, or run back through the trail to get back to your truck.

Hey guys, I have a family thing that has come up that I'm not going to be able to get out of. So I'm out now. Maybe Dennis or Glen can step up and lead this trip. If they don't show either and no one else knows the trail, maybe you could check out Butcher Jones or just play around in the Lower Syc area. Sorry about this.
Josh.

I can lead the trail, I know exactly where to go and I have done it a time or two in my past. Keep the same meeting area. 6:00am right where the Beeline and the BushHighway intersect For those of you that don't know where it is located, take the beeline highway toward payson. The Beeline highway will intersect Bush Highway (Saquaro lake turnoff about 12 miles east of Fountain Hills. Call my cell in the morning if you have any and all questions. I have been looking for an excuse to get out an wheel, so please come, I just speant the past 3 hours getting everything ready to go.

My Cell is 480-577-5234

P.S
If you have already commited to coming, please post up here if your are canceling so I know wether or not there will be anyone out there.
Thanks again

Also, I am on a trailer as well, so don't worry about trailering out there and having to come back down the trail, we can actually make a loop from sqeeze rock back around down to lower sycamore. It's actually is kind of a nice trail

Edit: nm this post. I didn't catch the requirements earlier. They make my question superfluous. Everyone have a safe run!

I've never been out there. Lookin for opinions as to whether I'm set up well enough. Like the sig sez... Rubi with 3" lift. I'm running stock 31s and locked F/R. Have good rocker protection and oil/tranny skid protection.

I'd like to give it a try but wouldn't wanna ruin anyone else's run by being underbuilt.

Thanks.

Well, we have taken a samurai with 31's through it, it all depends how much you care about your jeep, call me with any quesitons, I am headed out there :D

Had a blast on the run today, too bad it ended early. Water and a chevy 350 just don't go well together. Thanks to all who helped pull me out and drain the water out. At least I was able to drive back to my trailer. Halfway back my electric fan quit so I just made it to the trailer. I'll load up some pix and post them tomorrow.

Thanks again!:D

Last night was rough for me so obviously i didnt make it. I take it the water hole is still filled quite a bit? DId anyone go around to the left on the rocks?? Any carnage?

UNSTUCK
05-05-2007, 07:33 PM
Shoot man. Wish I could have made it as well. Hate to see people having a good time without me. Were you able to get out by noon? Get those pics coming!

05-06-2007, 01:26 AM
Yeah, it was a great time, a couple of us made it around to the left, but the water hole was a big mudpit! :) Thanks to all those that came out, it was a lot of fun and it was great meeting you. As far as carniage is concerend, I think at days end it was an electric fan, a front fender, a spark plug and some rocks with some new paint on them:D! All in all... a great day and we were out by around 12:30, but the weather was perfect in the canyon so I don't think we were in any big rush.
