T
he Texas Ural Riders Division (the "TURD's") of the Soviet Steeds have once again invited us to join them for the Spring TURD -- the New Mexico Invasion of Timberon, New Mexico, scheduled for Thurs-Sat, June 5th-7th, but some folks are already planning on extra days before/after.  There is no rally fee or registration, but there may be group rides/meals, so please post if you plan to attend so proper arrangements can be made.

Temperatures in early June average ±75* daytime highs to ±50* overnight lows -- subject to change, of course. 

Timberon, Elevation ±7100 feet, is 30 miles south of Cloudcroft at the end of the paved road at the Southern end of the Sacramento Mountains in the Lincoln National Forest. If you prefer paved road travel, you have to travel back up to Cloudcroft to descend the mountains to the East, West or North. However, if you prefer exploring unpaved county/forest roads, and maybe even some 2-track depending on road conditions, opportunities abound in the area -- with great scenery I am told.



But Beware: Timberon is a off the beaten path:
There is no cell phone service, nor antennae TV reception.
There is one small convenience store with regular gas +diesel and a few supplies (not a full grocery store).
Aurora has a small cafe on-site and may be available for breakfast Tues/Wed/Thurs - we may have to help cook/clean.
There is a small deli in town for sandwiches for lunch thru late afternoon.
There is a small sports bar/cafe open lunch-dinner with burgers/beer, etc.

Due to persistent drought conditions throughout the region, open campfires are not permitted -- unless Timberon has a very wet winter.

Rally central is the Riverside Condo's run by fellow sidecarists George & Aurora**: http://www.timberon.info/mountain/lodging/condos/  with special pricing for TURD's (and friends of TURD's) staying 3+nights
and the Circle Cross RV Park 1/4 mile up the road: http://www.timberon.info/mountain/rv-parks/circle-cross-rv-park/  There are other lodging options in the area, varying from efficiency apartments to grand lodges.

Please contact  Aurora at 575-987-2372, 575-987-2553 or gcorder@dellcity.com for camping/rv/lodging info & reservations.

We heard a few people are wanting to tent camp and are worried that they can't at the Circle Cross RV Park. We have room for at least half a dozen or so at the Condos. And there is an extra shower and bathrooms at the little cafe, besides the 7 condos. Plenty of bathrooms and showers. All for the low price of $0. Just let us know who and how many are camping.

ALSO: Talked to the fire dept. today, Chief is Joe Wheeler,** a friend and fellow sidecarist. There is room for more tent camping by the fire dept. - and they will leave the showers and bathrooms open. All for the low price of $0. It's about 1/4 mile away.

We think we can take care of all the tent campers. Just let us know who and how many to expect.
Thanks, George and Aurora. We can be contacted at 575-987-2372 or gcorder@dellcity.com
