Atomic Autumn of Love

Post by jjgres » Sun Jul 17, 2011 10:35 am

The plan so far:

Meet in Los Alamos, do Manhattan Project tourism.

On to Siccoro, stay the night.

Be at Stallion Gate 8 AM for unescorted ride to Trinity site.

Get fatal dose of REM, pick up escorted convoy back to tularosa. (leaves trinity around 12:30-1 PM

Through Cloud Croft, Elk to pichado may be gravel, or paved.

End up in Roswell, do an Alien befor they do us.

Down to Carlsbad- White City...camp?

Tour cavern, watch bat flight at night.

Down to Van Horn (lots of cheap motels)

South to Marfa, look at lightning field installation, check out town for colleen.

South to presidio, then back-door into Big Nend Nat park.

Do the park, head to Marathon(Texas)

At hwy 90, easterners will head east, everybody else will head north.

The only firm date: trinity site October 1st.

Joe,

This sounds like a lot of fun. I spoke with Gary and I'd like to ride down with him and Dave.

Maybe I better make that clearer. Los Alamos the 28&29. siccoro the 30th.

Bring proof of insurance, helmet, orange vest for riding on the military base.

I'll be bringing minimal camp gear (tent-blanket) in case we get caught out on motel rooms.

The Gruppe Rides Again!

Post by 1sgwilliams » Fri Jul 22, 2011 8:05 am

Hey you guys!

Joe, the itinerary looks great! Cool territory, plus history and intrigue to boot. Last October, I traveled Presidio to Big Bend on FM-170 on your recommendation. It's a fantastic trek!

I appreciate the invite and encouragements.

It sounds like getting the TAT Gruppe together for this is well in the works. I wish you guys the best. I'd love to tag along as the photo/video journalist, but I have another commitment on October 1st.

Another cool spot to consider, since you'll be traveling through Marfa, is McDonald Observatory. It's just 38 miles north of Marfa, a few miles west of Fort Davis on TX-118.

Yeehaw! Vaya con Dios!

Gonna miss you on this one WalkingMan, Joe won't have anyone to share his woe's with.

Been working on the 990 a little, did a shake down run in New Mexico a couple weeks ago.

Broke the end off my Garmin Power Supply on the bike, so had to take the front apart and do a little work. Waiting on parts.

Just prepping luggage and spares
