Saturday ride to Martinez cabin

Saturday I went out for a ride with some friends to the Martinez cabin. We had a great time except for one small incident, the Ranger had a slight gravity problem. No injuries just a few scratches on the roll bar and a little rip to the sun shade, we just spun it around with a tow strap untill it pointed downhill, strapped in the driver and pushed it up on its wheels, it started right up and he drove it to the bottom of the hill. We checked everything out and headed on down the road. We drove about 30 miles round trip and the weather was perfect. I know that alot of the Arizona guys go wheelin out there and now I know why. I would like to try Box canyon and the Coke ovens soon. I am now a fan of rock sliders, my driver side rocker panel is not in mint shape anymore. I will be adding some soon.............

I want to do that run one of these days. Have done it a few times with the trucks, but never in a side x side. That area out there is gorgeous though, I think we are going to do the magazine photoshoot there

Thanks for the pics!

Very nice pics. If my memory serves me correctly, Box Canyon, Coke Ovens, and Martinez cabin are fairly close to Florence are they not? My dad used to take us camping out in that area when I was a kid. As well as Kingman, Flagstaff, Mt. Lemon. Man all you guys in Az are lucky. I wished I still lived in Az.

I'm always game for Florence area...looks like that ranger rolled coming down from the red hill just before you enter box canyon? That area got really washed out this summer. I nearly went over backwards on the hill about a month ago! Looks like you had a good time.

Yea that sounds like the place. He only had one person in the front with his Kids in the back seat but he was going up the hill, we slid it around so it pointed down (Teryx with a tow strap from above!). He has Crow belts and a good stout cage and no one got a scratch! It was a like slow motion. That was the first time I had been there. I guess which place you want to go depends on which wash you turn down. I need to get a GPS to mark all these places. We took I60 past Florence Junction and turned off to the right after the Highway made a turn to the North. Not the best directions, but the best I can do for now, I think I said it before it was about a 30 mile round trip.........nice ride
