    Jerome..Smiley Rock..Sat 2/27...8am meet

    Wells book pg 52...if your unsure of details..

    I have run this several times(about 4hrs) over the years in many different vehicles from 4 Runners to Hummers..always fun..
    in a foot of snow was nearly impassable..most of the 24mi is on fairly nice FS roads some of which were railroad beds
    back in the day..so long steady grades..some exposed babyheads (small rocks), washboard and the like..
    chance to see elk/deer or at least cattle ...but dont be to comfortable because there will be some rocks
    to navigate in Martin Canyon..its really a wash like Sunflower..and the rocks very similar...

    Its a fun day..lets make it another great family style adventure..tidy up, if we can, trash seems to be everywhere these days..
    though this is fairly remote and I hadnt seen to much in years past..

    I will likely need to put a cap on this run..I expect it to be large, I have about 4 or 5 verbal commits at this time.
    We will have a fairly early meet point time...and head up drive straight thru Jerome..air down for the dirt roads..
    weather permitting we will get up out on the plains behind Woodchute and stop for a bit..snacks and such before getting into
    the rocky parts...and OF COURSE the Smiling Rock...yes I had nearly missed it on my 1st or 2nd trips thru..LOL

    I will be a long day on trail..but its a great day..with some good folks right?..
    Some may want to jet back to town right after..I am entertaining the idea of stopping someplace to eat on way back to valley..
    likely not Jerome, will be to busy that night.

    MEET..McDonalds.Carefree HWY..east of 17...eastside of bldg..8am

    GOING..

    UPSJEEP......Sean/Claudia
    Extrememc....Mike\Tina
    NicknJ...........Nick\Jennifer
    Superhook.....Mike
    OlBlue...........Bill
    ROXnMUD.....Darryl

    Sometimes I take a nap in the afternoon, then I am wide awake at 2 or 3 am.
    You can do that when your my age.
