The All NM HOG Picnic.

Saturday, the 15th, a group of Sangre de Cristo HOGs headed south to Ruidoso, or Reodosi as Rob likes to call it, for the All NM Hog picnic. It was well set up and Southern NM HOG chapter did an amazing job. As usual, I remembered none of the names of people I met, so misc. HOG people and mystery guy was used in place of their names. (Sorry) Food was simple but good and plentiful. Attending from SdC was Doug & Marcella, Peter, Dizzy, Rob & Christina in a cage (Christina was stopped by the cops, BTW 😂), and me. The ride down was uneventful, the picnic was fun, The ride home saw us splitting up and Peter, Dizzy and myself ran the ride home as usual, just a mile or two over the speed limit. One of Dizzy’s slip-ons required a bit of wrenching, which caused us to stop for about 5 minutes and we were racing the rain again. As far as I know, no one got wet yesterday. Enjoy the pics!

Thanks and kudos to the Southern NM HOG Chapter for putting this together!

Turquoise Trail director, Southern NM asst. director, and me. We were plotting and scheming about which chapter was going to do the 2019 event. Next year, Turquoise Trail and Sangre de Cristo will host the event somewhere south of I-40, but close enough to both of us to make it easy to set up on the day. More details next year.

    Ruidoso, Ruidoso, Ruidoso (Rue oh Dose oh)…. Got it I think. Hey, I’m that Vermonter who kept calling it Ma-Drid until I learned it was Mad-Rid… I still have trouble with Calle Miquela, my home address.

    It was a great ride down seeing parts of NM neither Christina or I had been too. Nice gathering of fellow H.O.G. brethren. Yeah, Christina got pulled over for following Dizzy too close (a situation he denied was an issue) but the local Sheriff thought otherwise. Just a warning was given.
    We went back via downtown Ruidoso, Tularosa, San Antonia and Socorro on I-25 thru ABQ to Santa Fe. We got rained on pretty hard before San Antonio, but were high and dry in our cage. Lookingg forward to next year’s picnic with SDC being the hosts.
