2013 ideas?

So, what are your thoughts? We do this again and hang at the Cruces KOA or talk about something else or just tell me to shut up?

I may be limited to Oct 4-12 if I get cut back to a 4/5 contract.
If not I am flexible.

Camping, yes.
But there is no real wheeling per say since a lot of the GNF is wilderness area.
There is a strip between the Gila Wilderness and the Aldo Leopold Wilderness area, that includes some tributaries of Mimbres River area.
Rstep and I wheeled down from (N Star Rd from Hwy 35) Cooney, NM back to the river a few years ago.
Nice camping in the area but it's not wheeling except for a few tight spots.
We also did McNight Rd. up towards the peak, we didn't make the peak simply due to time, but saw some potential down in what they call the Yates Canyon area, I have not been back.

None of this would really interest the big rig folks that have to trailer out, it's just not worth the drive w/trailer to see pretty scenery.
I hold any commitment until we hear from them since that was the main point of doing the 'Cruces trips.

All things considered I still have a list of things I want to do around Silver.
Ft. Cummins North of Deming:
32°27'42.88"N
107°38'24.72"W

Hell's Half Acres off Hwy 180:
32°56'42.40"N
108°28'4.74"W

Anything between Blue and Hwy 180
33°35'20.38"N
108°57'36.46"W
That area is littered with old logging roads between AZ and NM.

The Tail End Of turkey Creek Would Be Fun For The Stockish Rigs,But Would be Nothing For The Big Rigs. I Can't Think Of A Single Good Place ForThe Big Rigs.


But where Ever We End Up Going We Should Make Plans Now For A Trail CampOut!

I am really going to try to go this year but not to sound like to much of a weinie I will probably stick with the easier trails due to the new paint job

That is unless I get her scratched up in Ouray.

I'd come over just to do that for fun in the Q.
In a straight line I'm not that far away.

I am open minded. My goal is to stick to the plan unlike last year with breaking my junk while cruising the blacktop 80 miles from home.

Yea, the Q does just fine even at 13,000 feet and with 4.66 gears it crawls along pretty well too.
We just try not to beat up the body a whole bunch.
Eventually we will get some body damage, then we can yank the flares and bumpers and have some fun with it but it will always be limited by the front CV shafts as far as the big stuff goes.

I am probably out this year. Probably going to be an every other year for me since my son is traveling more for sports, and I just started a new job. Need to build up some vacation time. But things may change.
