WHAT

A Good Family Fun Day!

Always a great time on this run/event at Box Canyon and th the AZ Renaissance Festival (Turkey Legs!)
www.royalfaires.com/arizona/

So thought it would be fun to do an AZFJ Ren Fest Day again!

Do an early Box Canyon Run in the morning and then go to Ren Fest around 10:30-11 on February 25th.


Start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
Then head out North via Mineral Moutain Mine road and head back on the 60 to the Renaissance Festival

Info about the Trail:
Box Canyon (very easy, but fun and beautiful trail) 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 8am.


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

I will be a maybe

I may have some tickets that I can give the group (please check with me before doing a group buy). I get about 100 tickets a year from them and don't think I use them all (usually give out to customers).

When the renfair ships out their tickets to me, I will see if I can grab a few for you guys and get them to Mike.

I'm a strong definitely potential Maybe.
Just need to know if it's possible to avoid the Waterfall (Which will impact my vehicle choice).
FJ if NO - the Waterfall is a requirement
GX if YES - you can drive around the Waterfall and protect your investment
Might have a LEGACY FJ40 tagging along.

we are doing same route we typically do, which is coming in on Price Rd, going up the Waterfall, heading north on Mineral Mine Rd, heading back west on the 60. If you want to come with us that way, then yes, FJ needed.

If you want to bring your new wheels, you could still come with us, go all the way to the waterfall, and just turn around and go back out the way you came.

PS - does the GX have a locker? if so, we can get that up the waterfall no problem...without even scraping. Smile

I must have gotten Ray Geiser up that waterfall 5 times fully stock FJ without ever touching a thing underneath. well. might have scraped his bash plate slightly once and maybe a kiss on the bottom once. but no damage to be sure!

Has a Center Diff Lock. Not sure if that locks both the front and rear at the same time.

Frome what I am reading, it's more like ATRAC.
