Decided to take the top off after all huh? I dont blame you, sanding that thing under the lid would be a real PITA!

I really want to do the whole thing and I know we can do it coming in from I-10 and going from Off to Upper to BWay. I just don't want to back track all the way back out the way we go in.

Sam,
I think I have it correct. Been searching hiking sites since most 4x4 sites prefer not to get to specific about things.
Barksdale Rd is the one just after the checkpoint.
From April this year: http://southernnewmexicoexplorer.blo...ad-canyon.html

Sure Flint, please get them :-)

More Edit(s):
I have the Border Patrol checkpoint labeled as the Blue Moon Bar.
I'll get that fixed in the new kmz file.
Actually found the Blue Moon and address on FB of all places: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Bl...10266992390866

Updated the kmz file: http://www.ttsfabworks.com/maps/Broa...yon%28s%29.kmz
Did not do the pdf version yet.

the road just after the Blue Moon is Faulkner Canyon, and that will take you in there but closer behind the Robledo Mnts. About a mile and half north of the Blue Moon is a road in on the left that starts out going uphill, its right before Foster Canyon Rd. The road after the BP checkpoint is only labeled as Country Rd XXXXX. <---- That is the quickest way in for the big nasty canyon (Box or Broad, i get confused) and it is an awesome drive to I10.

It's all good I think.
I was sent some gps coordinates that were recorded while in the canyon, they match up with the google earth file within 20-30 feet.

I'm currently working on something easy for the Sat trip back to Silver, probably Fort Cummings & the old stage stop north of Demming (I know that's out of the way for most folks heading back east). Looks to be 2-3 hours in and out. Anyone wants to tag along please do.
A few years ago I started looking at old stage stops. Apache Pass, San Simon, Doubtful canyon, etc.
My goal eventually (winter trip) is to wheel the trail all the way from Fort Seldon, NM to Apache Pass, AZ in one trip, at least a 1 nighter, maybe two.

Alright, well now we are thinking about joining you all!

I'm gonna see if we can get the J20 built and tow the Honcho down there with it.

We have 4 weeks to build.

Let's go

There was no way I can get the J20 ready in time, so it looks like we are out....

But.... I have options and will play it by ear.

What are the chances of the KOA having open spots should we make a last minute decision to go?

nope. i got the cage all purdy today and built the crossmember for the rear wrap bar. nearly finished with the rear wrap bar. i have been waiting a while for tube, just got it today.
i need to figure out how i am going to fit the front wrap bar. i dont want to move my steering to the front. do you have one on yours? if so do you have a pic. kind of out of ideas. maby if i stop thinking about it, it will come to me.
the body goes on in a couple of days, then paint it and a friend is supose to make me some drive shafts.
nearly colse to almost done
i checked on another member working on his j truck. stepside, 80s model geting a doubler. ooooh.

Its been super dry, so it is super dusty. I had a couple of kids in the back with the window down, choking on dust the whole way

We went slow and it took about 3 hours from pavement to pavement, with a small detour to the old quarry.

Dust masks are never a bad idea, especially in the fall when it is so dry here

Pretty neat! It would seem like an interesting place to explore. The article didnt give much closure on the cause of the wreck, it just said the survivors said it was the storm but the cowboys said there was just rain, no storm... Maybe aliens!!!!!!!!! It would be cool to find the coordinates and take a metal detector and see if anything turns up...
