It's almost now become a tradition to make at least one run in December for our group. This December run would be our 3rd. Regretting now now to have documented the others (although I have photos and can recover maps and plans if needed).

The 1st was a virgin run for Don on his 1st motorcyle, the Harley Davidson Fat Boy. That run was from Tucson and ran along US8 heading west toward San Diego. It was a two day run with an end of day stop in Pine Valley, CA.

The 2nd December run, Manny, Don and I rode the old US80 along the southern most portion of California. On that trip I learned what California Craps was. Interesting.

On this run, our 3rd annual December run, we decided to visit Silver City NM. This is a great place to stop. Nice people. Good food. And nice place to sleep for the night. We stayed at the charming Murray Hotel. It was nearly completed with upgrades and being restored.

See this Google Map of Trip for complete road trip plan.
