i am going to leave 1:00- 2:00pm Friday afternoon camp Friday night south of the Expo. maybe on Schnebly Hill Rd or on the east side off of Stoneman Lake Rd .
then go to Expo Saturday and camp some place again Saturday night and may go do Broken Arrow or Greasy Spoon on Sunday on the way home.

I’m going to lead a group departing north Phoenix around 6:15 Friday morning to get to expo early. Mid-late afternoon we’ll be headed out to camp most likely out woody mountain road. It’s pretty secluded and not super well known to outsiders. It’s very close and we should hopefully be able to find a large enough campsite for everyone to come and camp. Hitting the dirt is about 10 minutes from expo

The only other way is possibly from Sedona but you’ll be on dirt for a WHILE. Especially with a standard lift and RTT. The best way is in from flagstaff which is how we will be dropping in. Fastest way there is go into flag on the I17. Turn left on university (just past the light before the Wendy’s) right at the next light, then left on Route 66. Follow that a mile of two and turn left onto woody mountain. Will turn to dirt pretty quick. I’m going to try to link some probable coordinates soon. We won’t be leaving expo till later afternoon. By the way I’m working back up in Cave Creek as of today so you may be seeing more of me.

Well, like Ratfink said, best laid plans. I have some heavy work going on this weekend but would love to sneak out and at least meet some folks in person if you guys can let me know where you decided to setup camp (or shoot a phone # to text via PM or however).

Otherwise, if some are planning Woody Mtn Road that would probably mean hitting the 532 from there to Purple Sage and in the race track way to the Expo so I can cruise around there and hope to bump into you cats out that way.

If you see a silver FJ with white shoes start hoot'n and holler'n and I'll invade camp! - Justin

I'm planning on going up early Friday morning for the Expo as well. Unfortunately, I won't be able to stay and camp. Need to come back to the valley for work Sat and Sunday.

BucketBoy, where are you planning on meeting/leaving from Friday morning? I am planning on heading up about the same time you are.

The Great Jimbolio & ModMuscle are camped out already in the 2010,11,12 Sedonafest field on Schnebly hill rd, near Mason tank. What a peaceful place when there aren't 70 FJ's in here. Took some AWESOME milky way photos last night. When we get them back from Walgreens, we'll scan them and post them.

COPIED AND PASTED FROM FACEBOOK: (sorry for the delay)

Here it is, the Overland Expo Explorers. I will be leading a Friday Morning group caravan to Overland Expo. Meetup address is listed above but it's the Chevron/4 sons off the I-17 and the Carefree Highway.
Itinerary:
Meet up 6:15-6:30am (meet and mingle) (patches for sale for 5$)
Roll out sharp at 6:45am (please be gassed up and ready to go, not just pulling in).
Stop in Munds Park Shell station to re-fuel (Big Red is a thirsty B****) and head to the show (hopefully get a line of AZFJers for a pic)
Meet at the FJs at 5:30pm to depart for camp. Roll out between 5:30 and 5:45pm for Walmart where we will meet anyone else at 6ish pm. From there it's out to camp. I'll check my GPX for some possible campsite coordinates. General plan is head south on Woody mountain road from route 66 towards East Pocket until we find a nicely sized Group site (all dispersed, pack it in pack it out). Anyone coming later look for the large group of FJ's - I'll will do my best to post some coordinates on this page where we are at. Next morning I'll be packing up and headed back to expo for the day. I depart for phoenix Saturday afternoon because F*** work. (JK love my job but they didn't give me Sunday off)Plans subject to changes so please stay tuned to comments on this event for updates
