I was hoping to never unpack my block and tackle and East Bound Moto winch. Heavy rains in the previous days created soft/mushy mud holes in the Gila Wilderness Loop and run off tore gashes through the road where the road bed was sandy aggregate. But today was my day for a bike extraction exercise on the Apache National Forest Recon 2 route.

Well? How did it go? The week prior we were talking to the super nice lady at the Frisco Lodging company and she was telling us that they were still getting a ton of rain and quite a few of the roads were not good so we made a last minute decision to go north from Raton and head into Colorado in search of drier roads. The Gila is still on my list of things to do, but it will probably have to wait until March.

I thought the roads were great, we had the afternoon showers, and Monday night had a pretty good rain, we rode the devils' HWY (pavement) on Tues. Did the Gila Wilderness Loop on Wed, had a few potholes but not bad,
