I found this ride posted with Let’s Ride New Mexico, it was scheduled for Friday–a work day.  Billy posted and was leading the ride, I’d seen several of his posts and was looking forward to riding with him. Billy only rides during the week.  I got up early, finished my work and rode over to catch the ride.

My daughter had an activity for her basketball team and my wife had other plans, so I was making this ride solo. I gave some thought to posting the ride with AMRG, but decided to head out by myself. My last lobo ride was back in September, so I was excited for this ride.
