My friend Ari and I are headed to the American Southwest in January, riding from Albuquerque to Tucson through the Gila National Forest if weather allows. Very comfortable camping a dealing with cold temps but both new to cycle touring. Would love any advice or info from folks who have been in this area (especially in winter) and would love to hear from any hosts on the route as well :)
Not expecting much response as it'sa fairly specific and unusual route but would love any responses folks feel like sending.
Cheers, Simon (and Ari)
