When I tried it earlier this month it was on but would not operate. Enjoy the Gila and Pie Town. Ride safe.
AKASY, thanks! I was looking at the route tonight and wondering as I did not see anywhere to fuel up. Do you have any suggestions on what might work if the auto pump is still out? If not I'll probobly have to use my MSR bottles after all. It will be very close though...

Looks like a 21 mile one way west down Hwy 12 to "Apache Creek" I'll have that as a fail safe. Thanks for the heads up!
