Officers are elected in December for a one year term, but can be re-elected if they so desire. Yearly, the president appoints
a board of directors with the vice-president as chairman of the board. We have one official club run a month - July and
August we go dark - with members volunteering to "trailboss" additional runs at any time. At the December meeting we hold a random
drawing to determine monthly trip leaders for the upcoming year. However, members may pick their month of choice prior to the
drawing letting their decision be known at a club meeting. As soon as possible after a run the trailboss submits a trip report
and photos to the editor for the monthly club newsletter, The Bullsheet.
Have 4x4s! Will travel! Below: this photo was taken at the Parker 4 Wheeler's Desert Splash. Even Rock Buggies and well setup
rigs have a difficult time with this particular challenge. The P4Ws put on an outstanding event always held the 2nd weekend every
November with runs from mild to wild. It is very family friendly. The youngsters all have a lot of fun with this group. The trailbosses
are excellent. Runs are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday evening there is a crazy, very popular car crush. Saturday night
a great dinner, followed by a raffle with some outstanding prizes.

The Public Instead OF FROM The Public"
Phil White, former B4W member, took this photo on a recent jaunt to Christmas Tree Pass. To get to this extraordinary petroglyph
site, when leaving Laughlin, NV, take Highway 163 west approximately 5 miles. On the right will be a sign for Christmas Tree Pass
(you're not given much notice, so be prepared for a quick right turn). This will put you on a well-maintained dirt road. Go about
two miles and there will be another sign on the left indicating a turnoff and parking area for the glyphs. There is a short hike with
a wash on the right. You will arrive at canyon walls on both sides of the wash, and on these walls you'll find many, many beautiful
petroglyphs. It's well worth a drive in your passenger car. A big plus, there are nicely maintained porta-potties courtesy of the

in Kingman for their help, patience and support
my struggles, goofs and naive questions

You were both terrific. Joan
Below. View from the back side of the arch. This is the largest natural arch in Mohave County with a span of 138 feet and
is located in the Mt. Nutt Wilderness area. Four wheel drive is recommended to reach the parking site. It's a bit of a strenuous hike
and is difficult to locate since it can not be seen from the road. We are aware of three names that all refer to the arch:The Secret Pass Arch; The Hualapai Arch and Big Horn Sheep Arch. Kingman BLM has directions. Best to hike it in cooler weather. Remember
to watch for critters and take plenty to drink. Thanks to Coley Bibeau for the photo--April 30, 2010
We volunteer for many cleanups and projects on our Public Lands. We've collected as much as 27 tons of trash in one day. Shown below
we collected 16+ tons of trash working with the Kingman BLM and ERACE (Environmental Rural Area Cleanup Enforcement). It took the
group just over four hours to accomplish the task. It's sad to report, but we always collect tons of garbage and pounds of spent
The following photos show portions of artist Roy Purcells well-known murals at the Ghost Town of Chloride about an hour's drive from
Kingman heading toward Las Vegas. The mining town was established in the 1870s producing an abundance of silver. There
are some interesting places to explore in this neat little town. If you're hungry there is a unique eatery called Yesterday's Restaurant.
Just make sure they're open before you go. If you have a group they will try to accommodate you and may open just for you - give them
notice beforehand. The food is excellent!! The service equally so.
