Simba is coming to town. We are going wheeling

Post by will e » Thu Dec 22, 2022 10:14 am

Hey folks,
John and Tanya will be in town next week and we are going to go wheeling. They are flying in but his brother has a Wrangler.

We will be hitting BULLDOG on dec 28th. We will enter from the Ellsworth side and maybe go all the way to Cottonwood exit.

I will send out an email too, but I don't think I have everyone's email address. I'll keep track of who is coming in this thread.

Hey! We had a great time. We ended up delaying due to the rain. I know some folks took pics, I didn't. We only had two FSJ's. A Rubicon and Pat was sporting his F250

Let me know if you want to hit this trail some time.

I do, as I access Bulldog Canyon from the South off Hackamore Rd just 5 miles from the house here in AJ, and the trail from here to the Ellsworth Road entrance is getting really torn up from side-by-sides.

Last little trail bit is all sand, which is so nice after crawling over the rough rocky parts to get there, but never went North of the Ellsworth Rd turn off......yet :)

Jealous of ya’lls available trails! Love AZ wheeling
The bus I ride is so short it is a yellow Smart Car full of squirrels, monkeys and clowns.

I almost always enter via Ellsworth on 3554. It's not that beat up and the scenery is the best on the trail.

PM me when you have a date for wheeling in mind and I will meet you there. I'll bring cheese crisps and something else for lunch.
