Where is Rio Puerco?

Cool MCAD! Were you out there this passed weekend? Ill keep an eye out for you, we will probably go again not this weekend but next. It was fun we had a blast. Do you mind if I send you a message when we go next time? We went in via the freeway, and the hills were steep for me to get down in the arroyo part. I would like to get directions. Thanks

Hi RMED, Well we went in via the freeway, over by route 66 casino. There is a gas station called the 66 Pit stop. The entrance is just right in back of it. I will get more information on how to get in the other route, apparently the other entrance is in Rio Rancho. It is really cool there, you can go slow or get crazy, beautiful area.

*Side Note* We discovered that in the gas station they have a restraunt called Home of the Laguna Burger. It is a really small place, but we swear they have the best hamburgers ever, home made fries too. Would reccomend, they also have a really cool gift shope with lost of route 66 items as well as signs and posters from the 50's and lots of harley stuff. Check it out if go.

Heres a map I found on the web.

I've had a Laguna Burger in Laguna. They are excellent.

I'm down in Belen and have been looking for places to take the jeep that are close.

Ohhh..a Scout 800. I've always liked those. Bet you have to wait for him on the highway though.

Charlie.B.7 07-12-2011 10:35 AM

Cool glad you had the Laguna Burger. I dont know of any places in Belen to off road. If I find somewhere Ill let you know. Everything is closed even Montessa has been closed up, due to the fire danger.

Yeah love the Scout........Its not that slow, Im suprised, guess because it has the V8. Plus Im new to driving standard............Im slower than the scout. LMAO
