I'm here as well with my son. Pulled into Spruce cabins about 30 minutes ago. Will see you at dinner in about 1 hour.

Thumbs up Re: 10th Annual Smokey Bear Dual Sport Motorcycle Ride 7/30-8/3/18 Cloudcroft, New Me

Wow, 58 degrees at 8668 feet. Have fun you all !

WIKI:
Cloudcroft is a village in Otero County, New Mexico, and is within the Lincoln National Forest. The population was 674 at the 2010 census. Despite being located in an otherwise arid region, its extremely high elevation (8,600 feet (2,600 m); one of the highest in the U.S.) allows for a relatively mild summer that makes it a popular tourist attraction in West Texas and New Mexico. It was named by Fodor's in 2002 as the Number 3 "Most Overlooked and Underrated Destination Spot."[2] Tourism remains the primary economic driver of the village.

Re: 10th Annual Smokey Bear Dual Sport Motorcycle Ride 7/30-8/3/18 Cloudcroft, New Me

Wish I could ride this week, but ended up having to work. I did go out towards Sunspot yesterday and took Forest Road 223, and got caught in a thunderstorm. Then I took a wrong turn and ended up going downhill on a muddy road - slicker than snot on a door knob! No traction for tires or feet. And of course I was by myself, no cell service, no one around, with a 500 pound bike. But one hour and many 500 pound deadlifts later I made it 100 yards back up the hill to the gravel road. All part of the adventure! But those wet trails are deceiving, so be careful.
