    2014 Chihuahuan Desert Dirt Fest

    I did not look at the logistic's of the 2-day Epic so it might be what I'm thinking...I wonder if we could do a two day epic and have a non-rider meet us up there wiff all our gear and cold beers and what not and camp wiff us and head back to the regular camp the next day when we break camp and bike back?

    I'd consider the two-day epic if for no other reason than it's an adventure. Cisco had some cool pics of the accommodations and such and it was a lot better than I would have imagined. But I also like Tony's idea of creating our own bike-pack kind of trip without so much of carrying a pack. The 1 day is fine and all too, in a masochistic sort of way.

    The one day epic is not that hard. Easier than two laps at Comfort IMHO. You can do it if you want it.

    I will definitely do the two days Epic - just need to figure out which days - Key question: Can you drink beer while at the bunkhouse in Sauceda (asking as it is in the park)?

    Boquillas de Carmen crossing:

    I find it telling that everything is/was in place and they are just waiting for a date. WTF? Can't someone yell "open"?

    The two-day was a blast last year. TPWD staff shuttled our bags up to the bunkhouse, we ate dinner there, & then staff was kind enough to shuttle us out to S. Leyva campsite where we camped overnight. They picked us up at 8:00 a.m., brought us back to the bunkhouse where we ate pancakes, eggs, bacon and more bacon, then sat around drinking coffee 'til about 10 a.m. when it warmed up and we rolled out. Roughing it!

    As far as I can tell, nobody gives a shit how much you drink out there.

    Edit: HammerTime try to drink up all the beer the first night out there this year so we had to hit the Solitario Bar the last night. I did give a shit when I realized I was on rations for a night.

    This is the part I don't understand...

    "The NPS visitor center, which has the automated kiosks, will be staffed from Wednesday through Sunday, limiting crossings to just those days."

    Why did they put an automated system inside a building?

    This is to optimize the use of tax dollars

    I remember a ride.
    From Lajitas we'd walk down to the Reo Grand, pay a Mexican a dollar each to fairy US to Mexico. Then we'd ride about twenty miles in to the town of San Carlos. There we'd have lunch at a residents that was expecting the group for five bucks each. When we are able to do this again the boarder is officially open.

    I do not anticipate the Lajitas crossing ever opening back up again in our lifetime. Those memories of riding to San Carlos will remain right where they live.

    I am excited about reliving our visits to Villita Boquillas this coming President's Day though. Jennifer and I were there last in 1997 and back then you could purchase Corona for $1 a bottle and Coca-Cola was $3 a bottle. The locals were excited that you were there to spend a little money and visit their village.

    Convert it to Kilometres, it's more impressive that way.
