    I'm trying to talk a few of my friends into making the trek with me. We are a strong maybe at this point.

    'Looked at the routes. My understanding is that Gunsite Pass is now closed due to the new mine operation/owners. I haven't been up this year but have had several reports from other riders that the route is blocked. There may be an alternate, but haven't checked that out yet. I suspect all access from the Rosemont side is a no go from now on.

    Looks like a great ride, in. I don't have a trailer, just a bumper hauler, however have a Durango that can pull a trailer if someone wants to share a ride and has a trailer in the Denver area?

    Damn that looks cool but it's 600 miles just to get there for me, I just can't get enough time off of work.

    I'd definitely be there if my son wasn't due to be born on the 26th.

    I'm in. Got the days off approved.
    Can somebody lead me to more detailed directions where the campgrounds are? I'll be coming from the Phoenix area if anybody wants to carpool.

    Do you have room for a old New Mexican of mediocre riding ability, with an old DRZ, camping in the back of a pickup?

    I want to come down and see if we got our money's worth for $10,000,000 in 1854 on the Gadsden Purchase. If the riding is good as you say, then it was worth the bucks.
    I need to fix a couple of thing on the DRZ before I sign up. I tweaked the front rim at the Rubber Chicken Ride in TorC, NM. Rim truing is a new experience for me.
