Black Bear and Imogene this weekend: who wants to come, and where to camp?

Hi guys,
I'm going up with a couple other inmates this weekend from ABQ to Black Bear and Imogene passes. We may do some riding on Sunday before heading back as well.
1. I have extra space for 1 or 2 more bikes in my trailer, and we're looking at doing some primitive camping. Is anyone interested coming along?
2. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to do primitive camping. In a perfect world, i could bring my chainsaw so i can cut my own firewood to keep me warmer by the fire: at night. Do you know of any spots where i can park my Jeep and trailer and get away with this? I'd prefer it to be within 10-15 miles of the black bear trailhead

You could camp at the South mineral campground- ask Captain Rick about it-

From what i've seen, Ironton looks like the best spot immediately nearby. Is this place full of people who look to do the corkscrew pass, or are there typically spots available?

its pretty popular but its also a fairly big area so I'm sure you can find something. from where corkscrew hits 550 there is a dirt road that parallels 550 heading south and there are spots tucked away along that road as well..

there are also a couple spots off black bear rd just a couple miles up from 550.
