It seems March 17th(Saturday) is the only day this month that my wife will give me a "kitchen pass".....since it's only that one day, there won't be enough time for me to go to the "Stampede"......I really want to make that trip sometime, but not this year.

I've talked to Rattlesnake and he said if I'll post it, he "will come". Sooo...

I will lead a scout trip/trail ride to Caballo Peak, Apache Gap, and Palomas Gap on Saturday March 17th. I call it a scout trip because I have never been/seen the actual trail, but I know where it starts and will rely on my sense of direction and sun/moon alignment, Native American heritage and just stumble around the mesa until I find the trail. How hard can it be?
Just kiddin', I'm not Native American, but this trip may take the full day so be prepared for a long day/night drive home.

Let's plan to meet at the Chevron station in Williamsburg NM (South of TorC) AT EXIT #75 at 9:00 AM Saturday March 17th. There is a small city park right there if you have a trailer and tow vehicle and need to park it for the day.
We will drive down the old hiway to Arrey NM where we will cross the Rio Grande and I-25 and proceed to the start of the trail. I plan to be on the trail by 10:00am as again I don't know how long we'll be out there. If my calculations are correct the trail will bring us back to Williamsburg/TorC.
Bring ALL TRAIL EQUIPMENT,LUNCH,SNACKS, AND EXTRA WATER. And have a plan if you have a break-down. We will not leave anyone on the trail but will not tow your vehicle back to Albuquerque.
Again this could be an all-day deal so be prepared.(sunscreen,food,phone,water)

I wrench on it because I have to....

Wife and I are IN for the scout trip. Kids away on vacation with the ex's spring break. I will be bringing extra water. Rojo, any way we could do this earlier? The run will go past sundown if we start at 10, and none of us know the trail. Everyone in that case might want to test their electrical system and/or lights and pack backup lighting.

I need to speak to Rattle asap about recovery points/ bumper work and get a price from him that is fair for him. His stuff looks good!

Any of you guys that have a 15" rim want a spare 35 12.5 ? I have 4 of them setting in my garage.... this trip looks like fun, but we need to be prepared and maybe we could have a meet and greet for the trip and look at some topos ? I have all the GPS equipment needed to plot this... does anyone else use gps?

Sorry, better prepared than not!

That's a real good idea......since its a Saturday(March17th) and at least 3 of us are comming from the Albuquerque area, I thought 9:00 would be best. It takes a solid 2.5 hours to get from ABQ to TorC at the meet spot, that means leaving ABQ at 6:00 am(or there about)
I would like to meet up with you's and go over your map and the GPS coordinates as well.
Be sure to pack your GPS and this map so we don't wander around too much in the desert.
Be sure to get at least one tow hook on the front and one tow hook on the rear of your vehicle.....but hope we never use it.....
This should be a great trip, in Southern New Mexico.(sunscreen)

I can get us to there, then you head out toward the spaceport, turn north, follow the Caballo Peak ridgeline, then look for the lights of TorC....

Great Devious!! we'd like to have anyone from the Las Cruces/El Paso area come up and join us, so maybe we can plan a run in Rocotillo or the Red Sands area's.
Is there any wheelin' at the Hueco Tanks area or is that just a state park with no offroad??

I know how it feels, I had a 79 Dodge SWB 4x4 and it did exactly the same, you either had to keep your foot in it or go around it.
We should try to get together for a meet-and-greet in Las Cruces and then try Red Sands....

Looks like I will not be going to the stampede, so I will be heading south with you all. Should be a good trip.

I like my wheeling just like I like my whiskey, on the rocks!

Looks like I'll be in a shortbed chevy, instead of my FJ, but I'm still coming.

I think I burned a hole in a piston in the diesel, it is pushing oil out of the dipstick tube.
