We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Payson for a great weekend of all things International Harvester.

Below I have included final event information. If you have issues on the day of the event, you can reach JP at the SDS number: (928) 985-0145.

A full schedule, directions, and event information is available on the website:

Event Location
The event will be at the Houston Mesa Campground in Payson, AZ. SDS has reserved the Fox 1 and Fox 2 campsites. You will AZ-87 North through Payson, and take a right on Houston Mesa Rd. You will take a RIGHT off of Houston Mesa Road toward the horse campgrounds, and Fox 1 and Fox 2 will be the large clearings on your RIGHT.

Gates to the campground will be open starting at 12pm on Friday, May 3. Members of the SDS board expect to be there between 12pm and 1pm.

All Camping/RV locations are first come first served. There are no hookups for RVs.

If you are able, please bring some Firewood for the bonfire.

Campsites can be setup anywhere in the area surrounding the group sites.

RVs should setup in the WEST site. The show and shine and awards banquet will be at the Ramada and the EAST site.


There will be an IH Caravan from the Ft. McDowell Casino to the Houston Mesa Campground on Friday morning. Meet at the Baja Gas Station NO LATER than 11am. The caravan will leave shortly after 11am. If you are coming, and haven't already, please reply to this thread or call/text (928) 985-0145 so we know to wait for you.

Baja Gas Station
10180 N Fort McDowell Rd, Fort McDowell, AZ 85264

We'll be traveling as fast as my Scout 80 with a 152 will go, so you will probably be able to keep up.

We are lined up for a fantastic weekend. Weather is expected to be mild, with a high around 78 and lows around 50. No rain is currently in the forecast, but it's the mountains, so be prepared.

Registration will be open on Friday from 3pm-5pm at the Ramada. There will be a club cookout, sponsored by Sonora Desert Scouts, on Friday night, which will start whenever the burgers are cooked. Bonfire to follow.

Registration will re-open at 9am on Saturday, along with merchandise and raffle ticket sales. The Show and Shine judging will start at 11am and end at 1pm. Bring your own lunch, or head into Payson for a bite.

The trail run to Pyeatt Draw will start at 2pm. There will be routes for all vehicle types. Stock/Mild vehicles can join on the Bypass roads that run along-side the Draw, and more aggressive vehicles are welcome to take the rocky wash as far as the waterfall. We expect to return to the campsite by 6pm.

Happy hour will be from 6pm-7pm. Dinner catered by Haulin' Ash BBQ will begin around 7pm, followed the the awards ceremony and bonfire.

Sunday will have optional trail runs leaving around 9am. Potential routes include Water Wheel, the Tonto Creek Fish Hatchery, or back to Pyeatt Draw. Signups will be available on Saturday for those interested.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Looking forward to a great weekend!

It was about the same as last year, were you there last year? I didn't get there until almost noon on Saturday though, those last minute upgrades delayed me a bit.I didn't take any pictures this year. There are a fair amount on the SDS facebook page. Missed having you. I did get to see roughly where you are living now when my wife and I drove down to Bisbee back in February when it was snowing. Nice area!

Scout has had a loss of power I can't figure out, so it's a no go for anything but short trips. haven't had the time to dive into it the (fuel) problem. I've been real busy around the ranch, wiring my new workshop. Just finished putting in a water line for the swamp cooler for the shop and general maintenance on every thing.
It snowed 4 times this winter, each time the snow lasted a few days and then mostly melted. I wish it would do that every year, but understand this winter was an anomaly.
I'll have to remind Jason not every member does facebook.
