IT's BACK, and COVID safe! And EVEN though the Precious is no longer with us, I'M GOING TO LEAD US IN MY GX470 Hooptie car!

With PLENTY of time (2 months)to plan for this: Come for the wheelin', Come for the Scenery, Come for the campin'. But most importantly

COME FOR DUNER



THIS RUN IS OPEN - 29 Spots Remain

For Parking on Montezuma Pass.

This year's run is again special. Mike Schuette, "Duner" on the forum left us in 2017 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. Duner once winched Jimbolio (me) out of the mud 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 2020 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 Duner Memorial 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.
We'll be running on some of the GHOST TOWN LOOP
During Monsoons, this run was 100% FUN FUN FUN.

NOTE: THIS IS A NEW MEETING SPOT BECAUSE HOUGHTON SPOT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!.
We start out at Campsite 5 on the Gardner Canyon Rd (31°43'15.7"N 110°43'04.4"W) MAP - 4x4 through some backcountry where we'll pop out on AZ82 North of Patagonia. Continue down AZ82 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. (NOW GREATLY ENHANCED ROUTE)
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
>Alternatively, if you need to bail early you can head back to Patagonia on the Ghost Town Loop
>Sierra Vista for some Dinner. AND DAMMIT, NO MUD PUDDLE IS STOPPING US THIS YEAR!!!


WHEN: AUGUST 7, 2021 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 at Campsite 5 on the Gardner Canyon Rd (31°43'15.7"N 110°43'04.4"W) MAP

CAMPING for those so inclined, We'll be camping at Gardner canyon site 5 like 2019. 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
