    Hi Jerry,
    Just found Mark's thread here. Just wondering if you are planning to get in on
    Scott's upcoming Baja trip? Was hoping you, Mark and Dave were going, but I see that Mark is having a great ride down south.
    Warmer than usual weather here in Colorado, and no one is complaining!
    Ride safe,

    That's cool as hell @BigDogAdventures! Great pics and how neat to visit the CDT monument like that. Having done winters in both IL and WI many moons ago, heading south to avoid 'em is a great idea. Laughed at the border fence pics and you guys going into Mexico - take it you weren't accosted by all the "hardened criminals" crossing.

    Enjoy the continued adventure heading west :D. I look forward to the time when I'm not working for corporate bs and out doing what you are.

    Keep the knobby side down :thumb

    My wife and I are thinking of going down around Tuscon in the spring. May have to go see the monument and maybe Ringo's grave. Are you going to be at the TAT ride in Corinth this year?

    Hey bo,
    Haven’t seen Sam in awhile......but right now have no idea where I’ll be when he has his ride.......I’m pretty much burned out on that area.

    I think they're trying to map out some new areas down around the Sipsey Wilderness. Yeah, the same stuff gets old. Take care.

    Damn. Wish I knew that you were out in Columbus. I'm just north of Deming for the last 6 weeks enjoying the weather and dirt. Would have been great to meet you and squeeze in a ride .

    Peace

    Looks like you were up Greenleaf Rd. Did you go to Ft Cummins and the spring house.?

    Drop me a line if you want to get together for a ride. I know just a little, but have found a loop from Deming to Silver City that's mostly dirt which runs the CDR for aways. It's NW side of town.

    I'm staying at Temperate Zone RV park up 180 about 18 miles north of town.

    Hey Mark. It was great to meet. Hopefully your wife gets to feeling better. You missed out on a good day of dirt today . We'll try again I'm hoping soon. Going to the husky shop in the morning, so maybe over the weekend if you want.

    Looks like I need to pay attention to what's going on around here. How many of your reports have I missed? :wave

    Hi lady bug,
    Good to hear from you.
    I very rarely post anything on ADV anymore.
    All of my riding is on my website.
    I’ll be up in Montana and Idaho again this year.
    Hope to see you again.
