Muddy Rocky Road is named such because it has muddy washes to the west, and is full of rocks in the middle. It's full of beautiful forest landscapes, and volcanic rockscapes. It's useful as a way to get from East Pocket Road into the deeper western portions of Coconino National Forest.
Just north of the Casner Cabin Draw bridge, you'll find the somewhat hidden trailhead for 231B. The trees can make it hard to stop, so the best thing to look for is the bridge which also has high voltage power lines across it. It's the most northern bridge along the [East Pocket Lookout Road](http://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/1930-east-pocket-road).
I've been writing for TrailsOffroad since August 2015. Before that, I had been off-road in places like central and northern Utah, east and west Texas, and central and northern Arizona. I've even driven off-road on an island in the Caribbean (the one time I've driven a Jeep off-road).
I joined TrailsOffroad because it combines my three favorite hobbies: Off-roading obviously; I've also been blogging for most of my life - even before it was done on the internet (ever heard of a dial-up BBS?) - and even wrote a political column for Examiner.com for a few years; I also have experience with building websites and promoting on social media. These experiences made writing for Trails Offroad a good fit for me, and I've been enjoying it very much.
When I'm not working at my IT job, or playing with my kids, I go on runs with a group of people who like to collaborate on [AZFJ.org](http://azfj.org), and run my own online marketing and web content company (my wife calls it my hobby business) [The Rotisory Foundation](http://rotisory.spaldam.com) (named after a BBS I used to run back in High School and College before the Internet became overwhelmingly popular).
I'm a big Toyota fan. I've owned two 4x4 Tacomas, an older 4x4 Toyota pickup, and I'm now on my second FJ Cruiser (the first was a TRD SE 6 speed, that I got rid of after my twins were born).
