Hit one in the city of Durango on a Sunday morning. It looked like a shadow from the trees. The hitch pin broke, the trailer came over us like whale in the water. Fortunately, the damage was minimal. We used every piece of wood we had plus the SUV jack to raise it up and get the heck out of Dodge. Down the road, we were able to collect ourselves and get things going again. Broke the hitch pin and soon replaced the codder pin. It never was the same and had to replace the whole thing.

Age changes things. I used to say my sweet spot was 62 mph, now it's more like 52 mph. I'm in no hurry.

Were there a couple of weeks ago. Yes, south road is in good condition. Just a few semi-rough spots to watch for. The no-see-ums are really bad this year. Deet will not work. A new product (a couple of years old) by Coleman with an European repellent does. We have used it on two trips down and we were the only ones with just a couple of bites while everyone else was covered with bites. Coleman SkinSmart can be found at Walmart in USA for around $6 USD. One can will last a week on a single person. We tried to find it South of the border on earlier trip when we started to run out but without success. Get it before you cross into MX.
