I want to take you guys to the ghost town of Tip Top. It's north of Lake Pleasant, the trail starts at I-17/Table Mesa Rd West. I figured we could meet around nine or ten a.m. for any one coming from aways. I can do it any weekend, so if 49er and Old Mcdonald wanna throw out a Sat or Sun date that works, we'll plan it!!!

You can count me in then. I did not get to the shop so my 4-lo does not work right, I assume that will not matter for this trail?

You'll be fine without 4-Lo. What happened to it?

We're in as well. I'll bring my wife and little girl with. Do we meet where Table Mesa Road starts at the exit of the I-17?

Lets try to meet up around 9:00, just take I- 17 north to Table Mesa Rd and theres a large dirt field just east, we'll meet there. Any questions give me a call Dave 602-316-3503. I'll have my wife and two boys along for the ride. We'll Check out the Ruins of Tip Top, Gilette and a really
cool old Indian Fort on top of a mesa that overlooks the Agua Fria.
FYI Just took the Commander into the Avondale Jeep dealership for $2000-2500 worth of work (Im glad I bought the extended warranty)!!! So far they have treated me really good. They took it right in and started working on it. A/c Blower motor died, something to do with the front differential mounts (transmission was clunking), and a leaking exhaust manifold.

I will try to make it also. Sometimes it is hard to plan that far ahead.

The more the better! Always room for another Commander.
