    Show me the way?

    Good afternoon fellow New Mexican MTBR's. I am going to be down in Turkey town this Sunday and would love to ride either Tunnel-Otero or Cedro. I don't know either enough to ride there alone. I guess I could find my way through the Tunnel Otero ride,maybe.
    Is anyone riding in one of those areas Sunday that wouldn't mind me coming along? I will supply post ride libations for your friendliness Thanks

    Unsure of my schedule, but a ride out that way might happen Sunday. I'll let you know more as soon as I do.

    I am working on my pump track on Sat. with a few heads so I hope to get out on Sunday. I would not mind showing you around if you did mind a slow fat ass riding with you for the day?

    Hey Ricky, Sweet. let me know. I am going to try to be around the trail head Sunday round 10ish. I am going to look at a vehicle down there hopefully before hand. Be great to get shown around. Which would you rather ride Otero or Cedro? I am flexible on the time though.

    Weather is looking pretty bad for Sunday, cold, with rain and snow forecast. There's a chance of rain today too. Otero and Cedro may be muddy for a while.

    FYI: Perfect conditions at Otero today. No rain at all this afternoon.

    Forecast calls for winter weather this weekend, though. I wouldn't attempt it if it actually snows Saturday night.

    Otero update.
    Trail was a bit greasy in spots and perfect in others. Ride had quite a bit of on and off rain today, but still fine as of 5 this evening. Noticed that Otero had a few trees purposely down across the trail in sections.

    In the spirit of Friday the 13 the trail was fitting.

    Nice shots.

    The burn area singletrack is packing in nicely. Got freshies through there a couple months back and we were barely able to stay on the original trail. Are the directional logs we laid out still there?

    There has been light rain and very light snow off and on all day so far. Starting to get pretty wet now. Not looking good

    Thanks, Steve. If you're not doing anything in a couple of hours, could I get an update as to whether or not to come out there this afternoon. I was hoping to get one more lap in before it gets too messy.

    Im going to town for a while but there is still a steady drizzel. I think the window has closed for the day. If we get snow tonight the window might be closed for a while.

    just finished riding Otero/Tunnel @ 10:30 w/ PJLama & CJ and conditions were actually great (if you don't mind a light drizzle). Can't say what they now at almost noon, but how bad could it be?

    Was just playfully messing w/ Maka. Sorry if it was read the wrong way. Maka's my homie & he knows it.
    I love the softcore stuff too, for sure. It's all good. Sorry if my words came off wrong.

    Last one out ...

    Although the worst of it is down in Otero Canyon, as it has been lately, all the rocks have gotten pretty dang slippery since about 4pm. Not fun anymore. Pretty dang chilly, too. I suspect tomorrow the slippery rocks will be icy rocks. If it doesn't rain/snow anymore than it has been, it might bounce back quickly after a couple of sunny days, because the trails (except for lower Otero) are still in very good shape.

    We were just following existing tracks. While faint they were still there. Did not see any of the directional logs in the area as we were moving at a fairly quick clip based on the weather and other traffic above.

    he could easily be mistaken as Bry's cat, but he is missing a tall boy Tecate to truly make him a Bando cat .

    So - is anyone riding Otero tomorrow? I think we are hitting Gutierrez Canyon tomorrow for some Homer fun!
