Hey, you're just over the hill from me.
Fishing? Well, I have considered running the snow blower on the FLU419 through the river this spring and find out how much fish it could fling out.
There's a lake down the road, but I don't think the rangers would allow that kind of fishing there.

Yes, I traced out some roads on Google Earth trying to find a short cut to Chama, and found one, but there may be private property to cross, unsure. Might try it someday.

This time of year, the rangers are unable to reach the mountain lakes.

Not that I mind driving 64 - it's a nice road, especially in a sports car. But a "short cut" would be nicer yet when in an MV. PM me a phone number, let me know what you have in mind and I'll try to research this end of it.

Unfortunately, the ranger station is right by the lake here. And I'm hoping to stay on their good side and talk them into letting me do some ice racing on the lake.

I'll keep you in mind come spring. There are a few back roads between you and I, and the one that seems to come out on your end, does so north/east of Chama. I'll trace it out again on google earth in the future so that I can be more specific. I still need to get my rig tagged and insured before I plan a trip. Right now I have been keeping it on my ranch running fence line and checking livestock.

If you can make it here, there's no real need for having a licensed vehicle. The cops are used to seeing strange ex-military machinery on the streets and roads.
You'd have to come up with something weirder than Soni Honegger's contraptions to get their attention.

I wouldn't even dream about towing a gooseneck trailer with a receiver and ball mount. Or, maybe I would do it.
But only if I didn't have a proper gooseneck hitch yet.IMG_2150.jpg

Not familiar with the butt of an M931, but it should be easy enough to build a gooseneck or 5th wheel mount for one if that's what you crave.
Never did get around to it, but wanted to make a 2-1/2" vertical "receiver" for the Pete, positioned right behind the 5th wheel, and drop a B&W turn-over ball in it for trips to the gravel pit as pictured above. Bought a 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter instead.
In your case, why not put a 2-1/2" vertical "receiver" in the far back?
