Prerunning - got a couple long weekends on my vacation calendar

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.

3/4 the way up the hill from the Roosevelt side, you'll see a clearing with a little road that turns off to the left.  The road goes down a little steep cut and across a meadow - you can see the meadow from the road.

Drive through there and down into the trees.  There's a cherry spot down there.

Turnoff from El Oso is N 33*44' 33.97" / W 111* 19' 49.05"

Second Prerun!   Meet Saturday, 7/1 at Punkin Center Grocery Store, gas station, hardware store, and credit card scamming machine - 9am

We're going to take the other road up the rim from there and Brent has a slew of trails lined up for the weekend.   Plan is to camp 3 nights and come home on the 4th.

Let's get a headcount.
