AZRocks 2008

April 19, 2008

Two weeks ago I attended the annual AZRocks event put on by the Arizona chapter of the Toyota Territory Off-roaders Association.  I had heard of people travelling from New Mexico and Northern California to be there, so I figured I had better take advantage of this event since its in my backyard. 

 I arrived on Friday afternoon and set up camp, then found a group to run Lower Woodpecker with.  My truck is not built to be a rock-crawler, but it is 4wd and has the factory rear locker, so it got around in the rocks just fine.

Of course on Friday night there were camp fires, beers, and Sobe-bombs.  We got some rest and woke up Saturday morning ready to wheel.  I took a walk around the campsite and snapped a few pics of the trucks.  There was a wide range of vehicles in attendance, from brand new stock Tacomas to tubed-out truggies on 40's or larger.

We planned to go on the scenic and somewhat-IFS-challenging Martinez Canyon run.  This was my first time in Martinez Canyon, but I had heard that it was a fun trip.  We had 20 trucks and it was very cool to wheel with that many Tacomas.  We managed to turn a two hour trail into six, but had a great time doing it.  By the end of the day we were all ready for dinner and beverages.
