The review online for Dripping Springs in Las Cruces New Mexico said – “primitive”. Hooked!

I love boondocking (no power, no water, no fee). Short stint on a one lane dirt road and bam setting up camp. I also love the fact that there is good singletrack for my fat bike. Surly Pugsley makes an awesome fatties fit fine – fat bike. I’m fat and getting back in shape with this generously forgiving bike is plain cool. Oh wait, I told Katrinda that I bought it to ride Jake around in his wagon. Well, dual purpose is best put your Surly to the test.

Pug is forgiving and while some bemoan the weight of 4″ tires and say it wallows…This bike is plush like a full suspension mountain bike.

High desert, 4864 on the altimeter! This is the nomad life I love. Just remember at 90 degrees it is a dry heat.

I climb for a mile over 1000 feet slogging through sand and RIP the trail back home to Jake waiting on the front carpet…good life….blessed and thankful.

Goodnight…

One thought on “Primitive

  1. We love boondocking too – in our case, empty anchorage sans fees and tourists.

    Great to see you enjoying life with your family aboard Born Free and getting some time on the trails with the nice new set of (2) wheels.

    The gorgeous landscape behind the Sierra Vista trail sign is making me long to return to the US.

    Hope you had an awesome summer and look forward to hearing more from you here.
