Come for the wheelin', Come for the Scenery, Come for the campin'. But most importantly

COME FOR DUNER



THIS RUN IS open 2 spots left

For Parking on Montezuma Pass.

This year's run is a little special. Mike Schuette, "Duner" on the forum left us last year for higher trails. I'm not sure if this was his favorite run or not but he sure loved to come down to the cool green hills of the borderlands and run with a bunch of FJ's. Last year I had to be winched out by Mike just 200 yards from the border.




Last time we had a Metric BUTT TON of FJ's, can we top the big turn out in 2017 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) There will be NEW trails this year.

During Monsoons, this run was 100% FUN FUN FUN.

We start out at HOUGHTON/I10 - head down AZ83 through Patagonia then
we head onto the
> Harshaw Road with a brief stop at the Harshaw Cemetery 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. AND DAMMIT, NO MUD PUDDLE IS STOPPING US THIS YEAR!!!


WHEN: AUGUST 4, 2018 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

CAMPING for those so inclined, We'll be camping at Gardner canyon site 5 like last time. I'll be heading out Friday morning to secure our spot so if you want to come on Friday night and camp out, please do.
31.721344, -110.717948

    Good reminder, If you are camping either Friday or Saturday please let me know.

    sschaefer3 - FJ40 on the border or it's all not worth it.
