Camp and plant duces where you like! No one is around to care!

Thanx to Julian in Grants for hooking me up with a spare computer. It sure makes following a designated off-road route much easier!
I left Grants into a screaming head wind. It was funneling into the Zumi canyon and had me leaning over the bars,walking the flats. Though as the sun was setting it shut right off like a switch (yes, I almost fell off the front of the bike). So I rode on into the dark guessing the camber of the roller coastery chain of craters back country byway. To my surprise in the morning I'd shared a camp spot with a couple dead cows (well more coffee for me then!).
Pie town is truly a fantastic little place in the world. Divide bikers and hikers over lap here and brawl over the delicious pie. Then relax in the shade of the Pie-o-neer cafe with what crust or fruit bit they have been able to win.
I for-went a stay at the infamous toaster house and crept on my way down through the sacred Gila Wilderness. I'm now here in Silver city New Mexico. Its definitely a close runner up to some other really great places I cant think of right now. Its tucked away in the deep south west corner of New Mexico. It takes a bit but once you penetrate the franchise crap and get into old town, its a friendly and relaxed place. A Petaluma of the desert. Great folks at the Gila hike & bike shop and good coffee time action at the Java-lina.
P.s. thanx a bunch to William here in Silver City for providing me with a good and much needed rest in your guest villa! Truly a great spot you've got there!
