Laugh Registration

Magoo/Trailwerks:

That is the coolest event registration page. Great job guys!

Not only can you register for the event, but you can also become a member of NMOHVA (or renew). Plus, you can easily and quickly donate to the Access Defense Fund, with 3 different preset amounts. I suggest the $100 option if you can swing it. That money is well spent as it goes directly to keeping the roads and trails of New Mexico (including T or C) open for all of us to enjoy.

Paid up!
I will be heading to Elephant Butte Lake on Thursday late afternoon to grab a spot for the simultaneous Charlie Sheen Beach party rendezvous that is amazingly taking place on the same weekend, go figure
The beach offers no hook ups of any kind but there are porta johns and you get to crash next to the water! There is a camping fee of $ 8.00 per nght, they also have full hook up sites up a ways from the lake. It s about a 15 minute ride from the lake to downtown ToC for the Chicken Ride events.

Should be interesting - I should have some idea what it's like offroad by then.
So far it's untested on anything like Burma Rd, but I expect it will just mean I won't chase Shearboy across the open desert like last year.
It will get a serious front tire in the next few days though.

Will be fun in the Box, up Chloride, etc


Ok lets start the betting pool,
How many think Blake will still have this bike in October?
With his history of bike ownership I bet he will have something else with him for the ride.....

If anyone is bringing their RV/trailer down and wants to stay at a place with full hookups, I recommend the Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort



http://www.elephantbuttelakervresort.com/


Their daily rate is $34 and includes the following amenities:
Daily rates include water, sewer, cable, WiFi, and electricity.

oh ye of little faith....or too much faith.... or something


Can I throw a red herring in there and say that I've ordered Berg Briggs' racks (arrive Wed), will be visiting Dusty for a set of Expedition bags....and the seat is going to be off to Seat Concepts for their tall version?

The plan is for this to be the next Baja sled.
And the group of stooges might finally get their schedules in harmony for a bop to Prudhoe Bay next summer after a few years of not being able to get synchronized :fingerscrossed

There's always the possibility I'll have something in addition to the TR though....but it's likely to be around for a bit.
Yes, it might actually make TWO appearances in New Mexico in the same year

There's always the possibility the sun will rise in the east. But it's just a possibility.

Pelican Spa

I checked out the Pelican Spa on Saturday, they have a total of five properties all located within a block of each other in downtown T or C.

Sid, the owner of the Pelican, is giving us a 10% discount off of their room rates. As of Saturday he still had 16 rooms available.

http://www.pelican-spa.com/

The main building has a cool courtyard area

along with a great room that can be used for meetings, etc.

The main building has 5 mineral baths which are available for all guests to utilize.

The Red Building has a good-sized, walled courtyard that would work well for evening BS sessions:

There are four rooms at the Red Building, including "the Loft", which looks like a cool room for a party!

Desert View Inn

Hans at the Desert View Inn is also giving us discounted rates on his rooms, there are already 6 units reserved for the weekend of the Rubber Chicken Rally (Hans is holding the whole place for riders only!)
(Room rates are $40-$45)



The Desert View has been a popular spot to stay for many of the previous ADV rides down in the area.

Cafe Bella Luca

Everyone is on their own for dinner on Friday night, one of several great restaurants in T or C is the Café Bella Luca, which is located in the downtown area, less than a block from the Pelican Spa.

We ate here last year, and they have some of the best Italian food in the state!

You can see the Pelican Spa in the background of this photo from the patio at the Bella Luca

Cafe Bella Luca underscores what a unique and surprising little town this is...
I've stayed there on bike trips over the years, never wandering farther than the hotels right off the interstate nor going further than Denny's or La Cocina for meals.

Even rambling through town doesn't give away much of what it has to offer - but going down there to ride and staying a few days... has turned me onto lots of great spots that make the end of a great day of riding something to look forward to.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"
