    While klunking around in the Chihuahuan desert I came across this geo couch. And inspired by Locojoe's well documented exploits of geo couching I decided to contribute to the GC catalog. I could not get the timer to work on the camera so decided to put the bike in the GC rather than myself, hope it still counts:grin:

    Did you record the coordinates so other RRB members can find this geo couch?

    Thanks!!! The gear ratio is 28/19. Most of the land out there is hard pack but has patches of sand the low gear helps push thru.

    Thought that gearing looked low but didn't know it was that low.

    Nice find. Cool bike and local. but.... the rules state you must be seated on the couch for it to be official. No risk no reward lol.
