WHAT

An easy, fun night run!



It's Halloween so come celebrate with us!

We will be doing a night run to Box Canyon Run and after we climb the waterfall, stopping to hang out and have a campfire as well as dinner.

So its a great chance to decorate your truck or yourselves and hang out!

Please bring some wood as well as your grill and food and candy Smile

Also, feel free to camp out after you want as well.

We will start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
After dinner, will head out North via Mineral Moutain Mine road

Info about the Trail:
Box Canyon (very easy, but funl) is a signature trail, good trail for beginners and all.

Go to airdown spot off of Price Road and then get on the trail around 5pm.


A fun run for veterans, a fun run for noobs who want to see what their truck can do and use their lights!


POTLUCK AND CAMPING LOCATION
we will be meeting in a nice clearing for the Potluck and camping. Please feel free to bring your Potluck dish as well as a bundle of firewood.

It is easily accesible - head east on the 60 (coming from PHX). Take a right (south) onto Mineral Mountain Rd. Then take a right (west) onto Gasline rd.

About 3/4 mile, take a right (past the wash) and drive into the clearing. Everything is trailer friendly here.

Here are the coords:

All kinds of candy welcome, including old and stale

Ask Connie, I am a professional moocher of food Smile
I will have at least 2 pounds of chicken, and many others will have food. but this is about hanging out, so dont feel like you have to rush out if you are not bringing anything for the Pot Luck

Firewood
If you are camping, please bring some, so we can mooch off your fire while we pot luck

Cigars
Yes, I will bring my cigars, and will have several extras

Obstacles
This is a very easy trail, only one real Obstacle, and that's the waterfall at he end of Box Canyon, on the way towards the middle of Florence Junction.

I will be spotting anyone who needs it, so don't worry, we will get you up it. Smile
If anyone gets stuck, we will have plenty of snatch straps to get you up too

Patriots
Yes, they will win the Superbowl again...

That is all

Can we NOT spend 2 hours on the waterfall this time? It was a bummer to get to camp so late and not eat.

Whatevs. I do what I want (even if I didn't actually intend to, I probably wanted it anyway).

We can just go up the "fun" parts last Marc that way we can catch up to the group later. lol
Didn't we have to wait on another truck that was supposed to have a locker last time? That's what took up all the time at the falls last year, from what I recall.

We’re coming down.

We have not decided yet if we will do the run or just meet y’all in camp (like last year). Might do some exploring during the afternoon, setup camp and wait for the group to arrive....not sure if we’re bringing the trailer or not.
