The weather looked like it was going to be bad and there was a little snow when we got down into the big ditch, but it never really got all that cold and nothing got muddy. Overall a great day.

Anywho, this is a little wheeling place called the Rio Puerco out in Albuquerque/Rio Rancho New Mexico :)

Last time out, I broke my other rear end just where you see that tree behind the Jeep. This time I came back with a 44 and a Detroit Locker.

Cool. I was wondering what the wheeling was like in Albuquerque. I may be out at UNM this fall; we'll see.

Chris, Las Cruces is quite a bit closer to El Paso and from what I've heard, there are some nice trails out there

Try googling Chili (Chilie) Challenge. It's an event that is held down there annually I believe.

Puerco is nice for Albuquerque because it's close and there is a by pass for everything however. I'm not sure i'd make a trip out of it though, but thats probably because I live here :)

Mambeu, check out the nmvjc.org. It's a local Jeep club out here :) See ya on the trails!
