    Re: 8th Annual VJC YJ Run - Saturday April 21 2018

    Participation and also my severe lack of planning this year, among other things, have necessitated the postponement of the run for the time being.

    Sorry to do this guys, I was looking forward to heading out to Parker, but I'm going to try to do a better job of putting this together later this year, after summer, once things cool back down.

    Don't worry, oh sponsors, I'm still going to hold you to all those cool donations

    Hi I've no clue how to use this site so probably won't get notifications as I've tried to use it before and didn't work well.

    I'd like to try and make Saturday, group 2

    THE 8TH ANNUAL YJ RUN WILL TAKE PLACE IN PARKER, AZ

    Where: Morning meetup before the day's festivities will be at the La Paz County Park in Parker. Look for the giant group of people with square headlights. See maps below.

    Who: All 1987-1995 Wranglers, anyone who has participated in any of the previous 7 YJ Runs, and anyone else who is willing to put square cutouts over their headlights for the weekend and let us take photos (there will be a limit on the number of non YJs

    What about camping and accommodations: It's recommended that folks consider making this a weekend trip. Fee RV camping is available at the Pirate's Den. Fee RV and tent camping are available at the adjacent La Paz Campground (see maps and contact info below). Pirate's Den has a popular restaurant and bar. While the trailheads are 3-4 miles from this area, an off-highway route from camp-to-trail exists for trailer queens. La Paz has restroom and shower facilities, and there are hotels nearby for those wanting somewhat more luxury. Free camping is also available closer to the trails off of Cienega Springs Rd aka Desert Bar Rd. More info on camping and contact info for Pirates, La Paz & the Havasu Springs Resort (motel) is in the 2nd post.

    We will kick the day off together and depending on participation will then split into two groups, attempt to meet up mid-day for grub at the famous Desert Bar, which is worth the trip to Parker all by itself, then hit up more trails.

    Group 1: This group will run moderate trails that are rated 3.0-3.5 such as - Adventure Canyon, Drunk Trail & Cat Tail. Minimum 31" tires, front & rear recovery points required. Traction aids such as LSD or locker strongly recommended on at least one axle, but not required. Rigs without traction aids will have a more challenging day. Be prepared for body scraping and, as always, vehicle damage. If you're in a smaller rig, but have run some of the moderate trails in Parker before and want to participate, please PM me.

    Group 2: This group will run trails that are rated 4.0+ such as - Rio Lobo, True Grit, Truman, Deliverance & President's Choice. Minimum 35" tires, 2 lockers required. Winch recommended - a couple spots may require winching for vehicles with 35" tires. Body damage possible. For folks who have never run a 4.0 trail before but want to, this is a good opportunity as there will be experience in this group.

    Optional night runs will likely be happening on Friday and/or Saturday nights. As always, camping will be a great time.

    Be prepared for breakage and the fact that this area is 2.5 hours from Phoenix. You know the weak points on your rig, so bring your tools and key spare parts if you have them.

    There will be no cap on the number of participants.


    I'm in, let's do this:
    1. Scott / Treekiller - '93 YJ
    2. Tom / Tom Jacobson - YJ Buggy
    3. Terry / 2EquisYJ - '89 YJ
    4. Ralph / dzrtrataz - YJ
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.



    Maybe I will, maybe I won't:
    1. Mike / OLM - Buggy
    2. Josh / Easyover - '95 YJ
    3. Jason / 94whyJ (Fenom Fab) - '94 YJ
    4-22. 18 people from Facebook
    23.
    24.


    I hate you and I hope you die:

    Sorry amigo! I made the decision to postpone it last night but didnít comment until today. While I know there are a few people who would still like to go, I want to plan better for it later this year with a poll so we can select a date where more people will be able to attend.
