That's what I initially thought........sarcasm understood.


But upon calling and inquiring......my first date request was already booked.....and my second date request was already booked.......so I settled on what they could give me for a third choice. It is a good date, but if I had waited even another 30 days, Sipapu in 2011 would not have been possible.

In !

I will be bringing the trialer down so if anyone from up north needs a support vehicle or just needs someone to drag some crap down for them (like a spare set of Knobblies for the rain) let me know. John, you rock, thanks for making all this possible and let me know if you need a 1/2 of Wyoming open range cow for Saturdays dinner.

Thanks Dert! Seems these days, Costco and Sams Club offer well graded, USDA Choice for a wonderful price.

Actually, I will be purchasing a lot of beef backstraps again!!! We will keep our tradition of the Saturday night Ribeye Steak Dinner!!!!

In 2011, I hope to forego the chicken fajitas and move to Beef. I will need a few dozen pounds of flank steaks.

The neat thing will be Sipapu Resort covering a meal for us. I am thinking Fajitas on Thursday night, Sipapu's Enchilada Dinner on Friday night and our Steak dinner on Saturday night.

More details to come!!!!!

After search various threads of rides in the Sipapu area, I found these pics and decided to post them over here so everyone could get an idea of the riding area.

I don't get it John, those New Mexico guys are always posting about how "nothing to see here, nothing to ride here, no fun to had here, ride safe and keep rolling, thanks for thinking about us" What gives?? I think some of those locals need to show some pix and give up the goods, is it worth it or not?

I agree Grub. Seems over the past 6 months you were posting a lot of Pics for the South Fork location. Like you, seems the locals should step up with the "good stuff".

I also understand that several were riding the area either this weekend or next weekend. We should be seeing a bunch of fresh pics.....a nice digital scouting trip.

A little 1200GS Beak Cam footage from one of the forest roads around Sipapu from this past weekend. I have plenty of dry footage from the ride, but figured this would make most RMAR 2010 attendees feel more comfortable
