camping in crown king Sat. 7/23

Anybody want to run crown king on Saturday the 23rd (next weekend)? I wanna pre-run it for the VJC trip next month, and I'm dying to go camping. Probably run it in the morning, stop at the creek along the way for a few minutes, then run to the top. Set up camp, have a beer or two and grill a burger.

You need to! Should be a lot of fun now that the fire restrictions have been lifted. Have to fire up the grill...

For those who plan to go, what time do you want to meet at airdown? I'm somewhat flexible; don't wanna leave at the crack of dawn though. I'm thinking about leaving airdown area between 7-9am. Any preference?

For those that don't know, to get to the usual airdown spot:

I17 to Carefree Hwy (exit 223A)
West on Carefree Hwy to Castle Hot Springs Rd.
North on Castle Hot Springs Rd.

When the road ends (actually, it comes to a tee), make a left. You'll see a dirt road pulloff on the right hand side; that's it.

I'll let everyone know for sure on the departure time as it gets a little closer (but as soon as possible).

***UPDATE***

It's official; planning on leaving airdown at 7AM. So, I wanna try and show up before 6:45 to have enough time to airdown and disconnect. Weather is supposed to be in the mid-80's on Saturday for CK, with low's somewhere around 60 at night; should be a great night! Fire restrictions have been lifted, so a campfire would go great when enjoyed with a or two...
