AZ trip Sunflower Sept 23/24th

Brothers,
We will do Sunflower loop on Sunday Sept 24. 10:00 AM (that gives the overnighters time to get up).
We meet at the trailhead off of old highway 87 (Beeline) just off the pavement.
Or in town someplace if need be.

Those who want to make it an overnighter, we could do Mount Ord on Sat the 23rd (if the trail is still open. We could check it out anyway, great views from the top), stay overnight then meet those who want to do Sunflower on Sunday.

Overnighters meet at Mc Donalds at SE corner of Baseline and Ellsworth just South of I-60 (starbunks and Albertsons there too) We will meet there at 8:30 AM and meet up with Mike at Beeline and Bush at 9:15 AM.

Or someplace else if we choose. But I will be going straight up Ellsworth to the Bush then the Beeline myslef, so meeting place will be some where up Ellsworth if not there.
West/Northsiders?? Your choosing.

So two lists, overnight and Sunday only.

I be an overnighter.

Overnighters
Ralph
Mike
Maybe BigRedChief
Derek


Sunday only
Josh



Ralph

I've been waiting on parts (and free time) to finish up projects on my jeep. If I can get it done enough I should be able to wheel 'n' camp 'n' wheel again.

If any of the Sunday wheelers want to do Sunflower Mine early, around 8:00am, let me know and I’ll go.

Steve, clue me in on why you want to do that. Are you going to be in the area? Camping with us? Or just want an earlier start. We could change times if need be.

We could do that. What time would you like the Sunday people to meet us at the trail head? Remember, we aren't too early on our camping trips the next morning.

Think we could do that everyone, 8:00AM at the trailhead? Including those comng up on Sunday?
How a bout 9:00AM, too late?

Ralph

I 'could' do 8 am, but 9 would be better. I figure I'm at least an hour from the trailhead, which would mean an awfully early start to make it by 8. Does anyone have provisions for air? I realized yesterday I left my viair in NM.

I don't want to start too early either. We need to get up, make breakfast and brake camp down.

I can pump up smaller tires (31") but my little ARB isn't big enough for larger tires.

Count me out then. You’ll be starting the trail at 10:00 or so based on previous trips. It’s a long ways for me to go, took 5 hours to get home last time.

If anyone else wants to go early that’s not camping out let me know. We can split the group into the ones that want to wheel and the slackers. LMAO.

Btw
I’m wheeling walnut canyon loop sun with a few vjc’s. If you want to go be at hwy 177 and battleaxe at 8:30am lol. I’ve never done the loop and don’t know the trail but I do know battleaxe to coke ovens very well now. If anyone knows the loop and wants to go that would be great.

OK steve.
Walnut canyon loop is a nice drive. Walnut canyon itself is a nice hike too. There are some washes that branch off of there that are fun too. Once you hit the big wash the trail can dissapear if rains have washed away the tracks. There will be a spot where the bigger trail goes down to the river, you want to go up the wash if the tracks are gone. Keep your eye out for a pile of rocks when you are on the wash that turns North, (if you are going into the trail from B-axe road, or South if you are coming from the Coke ovens side), you will need to turn there. I'm taking the Wag through emissions on Saturday. If it passes I might meet you all, but don't wait for me, in case it doesn't pass.
Since you won't be on the trip to Sunflower, and we won't have the big stove, we won't be having a big breakfast, so maybe we can get going on time. LMAO

So we'll keep the meeting at 10:00 then.
Those camping, when do you wan't to meet at the McD's?

Josh, I have a pump. It's like the one you had a Mud Springs.

If you bring Dinky, he can pull us out if we get stuck.

Ralph

Cool! See you at 10 am on the 24th. BTW, bought an acre of flood irrigated citrus orchard in south Gilbert between San Tan Blvd and Hunt Hwy. We decided to build.

Steve,
it sounds funny now, but you'll understand when you see it. After you come out of the canyons you basically run a wash South to the river, go West a little ways and turn North up another. If you go too far on the South wash you hit the river, if you miss the rock pile and/or turn onto the trail and go too far on the North wash it dead ends. Going up the North wash, the trail comes out of the wash to your right and goes up the bank. You have to look behind you to see it. That's where the rock pile should be. If the tracks in the washes are gone it is a little more difficult to follow in and out of the washes, even with the trail book.
You will end up on the B-axe trail.
Just before you get to the B-axe the trail divides up into a few trails. Some are small and some are well used. Any of the well used trails get you to the B-axe trail. The smaller ones go to test sites. It looks confusing when you get there.


Josh, what is the North South road you live by? 10:00 Sunday.

Ralph
