Internet is so slow here I can't stream it, but I'm downloading it so I can check it out. Looking forward to what you find out over there. Flagstaff would definitely be a better place climate-wise for a run in July.

I took some pics of The Cinders today, look for them in my album. Video malfunction, stupid camera, sorry.

I only tinkered around in a little bit of the OHV area and will go back for more. Mainly it is for go-fast quads and high powered buggies. Traction is limited in loose cinders a lot like sand dunes. Most all hills are STEEP, too much for the unaired down raptor, but I never used 4Low so there is more left. There are whoops or giant washboards everywhere that are about 3-6 feet apart making for slow going. Most trails are quad width but the raptor made through just fine with minimal tree branch contact or sliding downhill sideways. All in all it is a very fun place to go There is primitive camping allowed and except for 2 campsites, I had the place to myself, although I bet weekends are different. I didn't run the truck too hard because I was alone and really didn't want to get stuck.

Oh yeah, LOTS of wheel hop. I made sure to leave my mark around a bunch of quad bowls so they knew I was there

It breaks my heart that we'll be in Vegas for a wedding that weekend. We'll have to join you all next time.

Milhouse, if you want to take the trucks out sometime, just drop me a line. I'll be back in town early July.

Update in OP! Dates/times/locations are set!

Let me know for sure whether you are in or not.

The gist of it is, Sunday July 15, Meet at Bass Pro in Mesa at 0900, Roll out from there to Four Peaks/Sycamore Wash, then afterwards hit Toby Kieths or one of the other restaurants down by our original meeting spot for some grub and booze.
