THIS RUN IS CLOSED NO MORE SPOTS LEFT

For Parking on Montezuma Pass.

YOU KNOW - FRANKIE The weather dude, reminded me it was time to PLAN for 2017 Summer. Last time we had a Metric BUTT TON of FJ's, can we top the bnig turn out in 2015 this year?
GPX FILE is HERE: www.dropbox.com/sh/dzf...WT9Wa?dl=0




With all the hubbub about building a WALL the border, aren't you a little bit Curious about what the border REALLY looks like! COME ON DOWN.


WHAT: The MONSOON Border RUN
RATING: mostly 1-1.5, Expedition style run, but some mountain roads got to 2.0-2.5 in spots. Fully certified for STOCK FJ. (Wash crossings could be a 3.0+ depending on Weather)

OK, it's been a few years since we did this run. But during Monsoons, it was 100% FUN FUN FUN.

We start out at HOUGHTON/I10 - head down AZ83 through Patagonia then
>FLUX CANYON
from there, we head onto the
> Harshaw Road and turn off at
>Guajalote flats, which soon turns into mountain hugging shelf roads. 2010 we couldn't see anything from there so it was a CLOUD walk.
Once back on the Harshaw road - we do some
>Ghost towning - Mowry, Washington Camp, Dusquene, and Finally Lochiel, where we can
>run the border road for a bit.
In 2010, this run involved several raging wash crossings!
L
Once done there, we head through
> Coronado National Monument, up to Montezuma Pass
Down the other side to
>Sierra Vista for some Dinner.


WHEN: AUGUST 5, 2017 09:00 HRS This is pretty much an ALL DAY run. 8-10 hours. (<PHOENIX Friendly) (NOW!: 1 hour earlier to get dinner at a descent hour)


WHERE:UPDATED Rally point is at HOUGHTON/I-10, NW corner dirt lot. 32.064859, -110.772839

COMMS:HAM: AZ4x4 channel 146.46 (Simplex)
Possible Repeaters:
Mt. Lemmon 70cm 448.350- 107.2
Nogales 2M 147.180+ (no pl)
CB - Channel 16

CHOW: Bring your LUNCH - bring some $$ for dinner somewhere in Sierra Vista.

WHO's IN for this Delicious 180 Mile loop?
Please indicate if you are planning to camp after. (We can do Gardner Canyon as before)

    That's what I'm doing.
    This would be a good Photo op for Commercial Trailer vendors. (Hint Hint Duner/1Louder/Sl33pr)
