AZ Run Accomodations - let's hear from the out of towners.

I know Mark is planning to go straight to the night zero site.

Snakeeater - I'm talking to him and should have info next week.

Queef and Matt - plans? 


I've got room to put some people up, but I may head out to the night zero campsite a day early to grab the spot.  Any other volunteers for that?

Trail Guides

Trail guides are done, and we have a GPX track file, as well as a KMZ file with all the way points to use as overlays.

I emailed it to a bunch of you today.  If you didn't get it, let me know, and I can forward.

We are just over 5 weeks out!!!


My movie equipment got an upgrade!  We can play Blue-Ray disks and DVDs now (as well as any other digital media pretty much).

I've got the collection I'm bringing, if there's anything in particular you want to see, let me know or just bring it.

There's been some power management upgrades as well so I shouldn't have to run the truck during the movie anymore, I should be able to play 2-3 movies a night easily without having power concerns on the batteries.

Got the designs done and will be getting the stickers bought shortly.  I'll be taking preorders through August 31st.  If you don't preorder / prepay before then, you're out of luck for AZ Run XVII swag.

A Tshirt and sticker is $20 if you either show up to the run or come get it in person, or $28 shipped (USPS rates went up).

It's a pretty cool design this year.  I think everyone will like them.

Preorders can be sent via Paypal at, or PM me for other arrangements.   Please specify size (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL), your name, and if you need it shipped, include your shipping address.  Shirts will be shipped out the week before the run.

I have 5/5-5/7 (3 days), 7/1-7/4 (4 days), and 7/14-16 (3 days) to do some extended prerunning.

The 4th of July is on a Tuesday, so if you grab that Monday before, we can get a lot of prerunning done on what equates to a mini AZ run by itself.

Brent and I talked about 4 peaks being the night zero camp, and a run up the rim towards Young as the day 1 route.  From there it's wide open to possibilities.  We'll put a gameplan together.   No real need to prerun that first trail.  Instead, on that first prerun we could just get up by Young on a Thurs night and spend the next 2 days exploring during that first weekend of May.

Our obvious goal is to stay off pavement as much as possible.
