Bull Spring and FS4100 road trip

Here is a new run. Well sort of new.
What: We will be traveling the Bull Springs road and FS4100 road out of Patagonia.
When: Thats what we will figure out soon I hope.
Where: Start either Cow Palace, or in Patagonia somewhere.
Why: Cuz half the road hasn't been seen by you yet.
Who: Whom ever would like to go on a non technical road. Like the rug road but shorter and prettty much no danger of breaking something.
Planned time on trip 5hrs. More or less Not including drive time to meet up point.

Ok so thats it, easy trip. There are some obsticles. Mainy high ones. Like tree limbs. So those with shit higher than the cab might need help (Greg) thats you. But really I had about 4" clearance to this big ass limb. I'll probably bring a chain saw just in case..

So, who is interested and give me some dates.
XBASX this is your chance to show Bull Springs who is the boss.. So I'm thinking of this trip with you in mind along with others sort of begginers who want to see some new things. And with enough guts to venture South of Tucson. Mind you we will still be 20 miles North of the border!!!!

Okay cool. This would be fun. We need to get Jaz down in 4low and kick Bull Springs ass. She has been getting the Fridge out more and more and she's doing really well. Only thing I can think of is that we need to make sure it's a daylight run so we can get her home before dark. She can chime in on this to clarify or to suggest times that work best for her.

I really don't mean to make an issue of airing down, but there are certain others that should be made aware of the fact that it can be done without harming their tires or their jeeps at all and doing so would actually make the trip not feel like a banzai run for them and would also be much easier on their rigs.

Normally I'm pretty easy going about this stuff but I don't want to see a group split in two getting lost again cause we can't stay together. I for one will just pull up with the guys in front if it comes down to that but I don't like the idea of doing so because its bad etiquette.

Not everyone, just a few in particular. haha

No worries Randy, I know you can help to bridge any gaps we may have. And no I haven't been hitting the geritol tonight and I was hoping not to have to hit it on this run either

Depending on when it actually happens Ill do what i can to go. Just so that I understand, you can take air out of your tires and that doesn't hurt your wheels? This could possibly change everything.

Hey sorry. I've kinda been recovering form Saturday. (And I went out again with a couple fjs Sunday). So, I got to go UP 3 feathers that time. Lol.
So, bull springs road is fun. When I went, I didn't air down, but I'm sure some of those spots where I thought they were baby shit, I might have been able to make if I had aired down. After this week I am free of school for 4 weeks As long as we go early and are out of the trail before dark, I won't projectile vomit my guts out.
I don't see a date posted on here. This upcoming weekend we have the t4t thing going on and I promised my best friend that I would go to the street fair with her on Sunday. I can go the weekend after or anytime during the week. Anytime in the am.

Cool, glad you have time open. I'll work on dates in the next few days. I know there is a Florencce run planned, I have to find that date.. Was hoping to make it before the hollidays.. And yes it will be in the AM you'll be out way before dark.

But did you have air tools?????? You interested in the FS4100 road at all Catfish? If you little stickey up parts on your rack fold down or come off there won't be an issue. You could leave them on or up till we get to the tree in question..

You know we are patient and tolerant of a lot of things but the more you hang out with Hummers and FJ's the more we may decide to eat you first if we are ever stranded out in the wilderness even if for a short while.

Also want to get the Fridge in for an inspection of bolts to make sure everything is torqued to specs.

Check with Jim. I know we have the following events planned;

December 8; Toy's for Tot's
December 15; Charlou Gap

Beyond that I don't remember what we are doing on what dates. I know we were planning a Florence run in there sometime doing Elvis, Upper Ajax and then over to Hackberry Creek. Think that all has to be an overnighter though unless we want a super, super long day. I've done Jackhandle, Lower Ajax and Hackberry in one day but it was at least 14 hours. Too much really. Anyway, let's get Jim to repost everything and go from there.

Well as much as I love to get hung up, Josh likes it just a little more. I think he looks forward to it so he's always tryin to find something that will high center him or twist him up enough to get stuck especially now that he has a winch to pull himself out.

Well, maybe he likes the attention. I know you always like people watching you on the bullshit rocks. Take him up Manfield in Patagonia, you two can have a contest!
