I'll be at the Shell in Camp Verde. I'm leaving my place at 6 so I should be there pretty early. Better early that late. I gather the Shell station is easy to find from I-17. Do any of you doing the trail have CB's?

The Shell station is at exit 287. It's easy to find. I'm CB challenged. It's beginning to look like it's only going to be the two of us so we will be alright without one.

Ya, but CBs are fun. Nobody seems to have them these days except for truckers.

I don't know all the history. But this may be the AZFSJC first all stock trail ride. This should be interesting.

If baby jeeps are allowed I may be intrested. I ran this trail a couple months ago with the CAZjeepers and am without my waggy now. Let me know if I can run with you guys in a baby jeep.

Randy, your more than welcome to join us. I like running with the FSJ guys (even ex ones). On my rides it's not what you drive. It's all about the people. Man.

This is the green version of a FSJ trail ride. Our carbon foot print will be smaller. I'm loaded and getting ready to head out. See you out there.

Two stock FSJs ran Mingus Trail today. I took my J10. Matt (FJSJunkie) and his Mom Suzanne in their 71 Waggy. We had no problems. Not even a flat tire. The trail may be easy for built rigs. But for stockies it has some challenges. The road is very narrow. And has some rocky sections. And 16 year old Matt handled it like an expert. While other kids his age are playing video games. Matt is not only wheeling, but working on his 71 Waggy. And talk about a family heirloom. His Grandfather bought it new.
Before we got on trail I was talking to Matt. I told him about the rocky section. Most people would be saying how they need to get a lift or lockers. Not Matt. He said,"I need to watch my tire placement." It brought me back to when I was 16. Wheeling around Arizona in my 63 Scout. Thanks for that Matt. Nice to meet you and your mom. I'd wheel with you anytime.
Any way here are my pics. Enjoy.

Nice pics Jeff. In a few more days I will be offically RETIRED and be able to do some of them trail with you. It is alway good to find a young man that like to work on something that his grandfather owned and have fun
with it.

Here's to your retirement Jerry. You deserve it. We will get together soon.

Very Nice! The scenery looks great and good to hear it was a good time. Kudos to Matt for taking it on!

If anybody would like to meet this young man. On July 9th. there is going to be an all AMC car show in Sedona. Matt and his family will be showing their 71 Waggy and 63(I think) Rambler Ambassador Station Wagon.

We had a great time - thanks for leading the way, Jeff - it was nice to meet you and Alicia (what a great dog). After we split up, Matt and I hung out in Jerome for a few hours then headed back to Flag via Disneyland...I mean Sedona during a summer weekend. Beautiful trail - loved the water crossings along the way. I took some pix - will resize and post a little later.

Matt does a good job on the trail - and I'm a little biased, but not too much. My Rambler is a 65 - there's some pix of her with the Wag before last weekend's show here:
http://1965rambler.weebly.com/gallery.html
These two cars sat side by side in a car port, forgotten and not running for years...it's only fitting then should go to shows and sit side by side, too.

The Wagoneer is truly an all-purpose vehicle - car show one weekend, wheeling the next. Would love to see you and only other FSJer
's at the AMO show on the 10th in Sedona. We're in the non-judged display section, because we just like having fun with our cars - stop by and we'll have a beer.

There are some nice trails up this way - have to check to see what's still closed from last year's fire, but when you guys get tired of the heat, come up to the cool mountains. There are some beautiful places up here.

Thanks a ton for the very kind write-up Jeff. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I tend to focus really hard on the wheelin'. You won't believe the amount of dust my car ate that trip. I had to service the air cleaner and crankcase inlet filter after following you for 20 miles on that road. Next time, I'm in front!
P.S. It's a 1972, not 71.

Now that we are in all out summer, the AZFSJC (us) might start thinking about doing some of the trails I have around here in N. AZ. We have a whole forrest that is littered with wooded trails up on the highest mountain in Arizona. They go to campgrounds, lakes, tops of mountains for a great view, and one even goes to a waterfall that is about the size of Niagra Falls! The best part is, it has never been above 98* here.

Here are the pics I took along the way:
