Robilios oct 19-20

Some of the locals went and hit up Robilios in Raton NM again. Been a few times now and it's always a little different each time. This time it had rained about a week before so some of the "easier" trails were almost impossible. Was only my second time to wheel since dec of last year and I was a tad rusty.

Saturday we hit canyon 1 and canyon 2. Canyon one was ok with the mud getting to us towards the end of the trail. Canyon 2 started off with mud and most opted to not even jack with it.

Sunday we went and looked at the hard trail out there named "twin pines" and it was not looking good so we went cruising around on some easier stuff that turned out hard. lol

The lift pump in my truck took a crap on the way home and just realized I left my gopro in it but have a handful of pics on my phone. Thanks to all who helped me get my truck off the highway! You guys rock!

Pics to come...

This run is always a highlight of the season.

I have a personal beef with canyon 1, as my first trip out broke 40' into the trail. Didn't waste any time getting my revenge. The mud mixed in with top notch rock crawling made for a lot of missed lines and constantly changing trail conditions.
Was looking forward to running the twin pines trail, as its one of my favorites anywhere. The fishing holes in between every car sized bolder made trying a fools gamble.....one I was willing to take. Turns out we chose wisely not to muck with it. I'm sure we would still be there had we.

Always a blast wheelin with these fellers, as the different personalities make it a fun time,every time.
Very lucky to get the invite to go with...

Here's my rig parked in front of his barn.


Here's the same barn(middle of the pic) from up on top of the trail. You can see all the toe rigs parked behind the barn. Raton in the back ground.

We had a blast. Thanks everybody for letting us join in on one of the hardest trails I've ever been on. Definitely looking forward to goin back when conditions are little less muddy. Blew a trailer tire on the way back but with the awesome pit crew I had helping me, we were back on the road in no time.

I think it should be mentioned......

I think for the first time ever,all the wives made the trip also. I think for the most part they enjoyed they selves, even tho some did a good bit of walking ( standing). I'm sure all had other things they would rather have been doing, but took the time to spend time with they hubbys doing what we love. I'm sure we all owe a huge payback coming soon. Maby I'll luck out and mine will be a cheezy movie and some Italian foods

Yes, a little restored(refurbed) motel on the old highway. The price was 1/2 of every where else and plenty nice for our use. They were very glad to have 7 couples stay the weekend.

Cool, getting an idea of what to expect when i go. Mainly trying to talk the wife in to coming and a hotel sells it easier than camping. LOL

Case worked flawless. Crawled real well. Hotel and KOA are the only options. Some of the park is inside city limits and the agreement they have is no camping at the park.

Couple more pics I got with the gopro. Most of my video sucks but I might upload a couple anyway.

Lift pump. I'll be getting an aftermarket one pretty soon after seeing that pathetic excuse for a pump.
