SWNN: Camping Trip 10/19-10/20

This looks to be another fun weekend in the Arizona desert! Have I mentioned how much love this state? Opportunities such as this, in mid-October, don’t  happen in most places around our country. Sun, fun, smiling faces and NO TAN LINES!

As shared by the friendly crew at SWNN, http://www.swnn.org:

WE’RE GOING CAMPING!

OCTOBER 19-20

 PLAN TO ARRIVE DURING DAYLIGHT!  If any of the SWNN members have ATVs, they should consider bringing them along.  Lots of trails to ride at Wild Horse Ranch… naked!  There is plenty of room to walk about the grounds as well, for those that would rather enjoy the quiet serenity of the great outdoors.  Google Map coordinates; 34.893 N, 113.517 W  (about 150 miles from 17th Ave/Union Hills area to property camp site)12 miles North of Wikieup on Hwy 93 then 15 miles East from Hwy 93 on dirt roads “up the hill.”

DIRECTIONS:  FROM KINGMAN OR PARTS NORTH OF WIKIEUP:

Take Highway 93 South toward Wikieup from I-40.  After mile marker 111, look for Lower Trout Creek Road intersection to the East, left side of the highway.  The rest of the route is dirt road  (see LOWER TROUT CREEK ROAD below.)

DIRECTIONS:  FROM PHOENIX OR PARTS SOUTH OF WIKIEUP:

Take Highway 93 North from Wikieup to Lower Trout Creek Road, just a bit past mile marker 112, turning to the right, East.  The rest of the route is dirt road.

ONCE ON LOWER TROUT CREEK ROAD:

Follow Lower Trout Creek Road (2.4 mi.) going left, right and right onto Trout Creek Road, also signed as “Bogle Ranch Road.”  Follow main road (no off shoots) crossing Big Sandy Wash, 6.7 miles to Olo Pass Road  on the right.  You should see a wooden sign at that intersection.  Go right at that sign and follow Olo Pass for 1.7 miles to a gate on the left, it is just past a ranch windmill also on the left.  Proceed left into the property .1 mile (176 yards) to the community area for check-in and camp site welcome.

We will put out pink & blue ribbons at all road choices and periodically to encourage your progress.  PLEASE DON’T TRY THIS AFTER SUNSET!  It is hard enough in the daylight.  If you feel you need even more specific directions, write to Lynn ( lsmith570@cox.net ) or Joel ( joel@swnn.org ) and they will be happy to help you.  Let Joel know as well if you want to car-pool (both looking for a ride, or providing one for others!)

Pack it in, pack it out… normal camping etiquette.  There is water available and outdoor toilets if you are only tent camping.  The central camping area has a large fire ring and we will make full use of that.  The ranch facility has a target shooting range which we will make use of Saturday afternoon, for those that enjoy that activity.  There are a number of “off-road” trails in the area for those that have ATVs and would enjoy a naked ride within this 240 acre private property.  Sight-seeing tours will be suggested for those that need direction.  Free spirits are assumed to be responsible hikers with proper equipment and ability for the environment.

Since this is the first time SWNN has visited this location, we will want to photo-document the many ways we enjoy being nude here.  Please consider being an energetic participant.  Understand that we will NOT TAKE PHOTOS of you if you let us know your preference to that effect in advance!   This property is off-the-grid and wonderful chillaxin’ around the fire and star gazing on clear nights.

 

The weather is about 5 degrees cooler than whatever Phoenix is experiencing for highs, but has more breezes, interesting weather and cooler night temps by about 15 degrees.   The lack of city lights and sounds allow great stargazing and nature awareness.  The size of the property and remoteness allows many hiking and local archaeological trips.

GO CAMPING ON THE 19TH AND HELP US PLAN AHEAD FOR THE SPRING EQUINOX FESTIVAL TO BE HELD ON THIS PROPERTY OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!

BODY ACCEPTANCE IS THE IDEA – NUDE RECREATION IS THE WAY!
