Re: traveling bug

Yee Haw, finally made it out of Texas. Right now we are in Vado NM but did make the trip back into Texas today to El Paso to see Wes Hardins grave and drive the scenic drive on the overlook of ElPaso. Well worth the drive of 20 miles back. We also did the Missions tour on our way through yesterday. Every body watch out using that Clodhoppers GPS. He will just keep you circleing in Texas so you will keep spending money in Texas :laugh: :laugh: Thanks Texas we enjoyed our travel through.

Re: traveling bug

Glad enjoyed your stay Chelse. You know if you would have stayed a few more days you would have had to apply for a green card.. Enjoy your travels and maybe see Ya on the return trip.

Re: traveling bug

Thanks for visiting. We do have a wonderful state...sometimes it seems to be a "state of Confusion" Come back anytime as you did today. See, you're kinda like us Texans...gone away a feww hours and have to come back. Safe travels and may the wind always be at your back.

Re: traveling bug

Nothing against NM, but I'm heading for AZ and UT next. DL's Red Rock Country! Maybe some NM up around 4-Corners and Farmington. And who can miss the Martian landing zone? :laugh:

Re: traveling bug

Stopping for a few in Elephant Butte NM. We are at Lakeside RV Park. So far a very nice park but a little on the pricey side if you are not a Passport America member. 17.00 with 34.00 w/o. Host were very friendly and we can use passport as long as space is available. Plan on making some side trips out of here before heading for Az. Weather is great so far and maybe I'll be able to soak in one of these healing hot springs :laugh: Shoot, just seeing all this new scenery is making me younger ever day. Might even see if I can scare ole Billy The Kid up around here. Think I'll shave my head because old Geronimo might still be out there :eek: Also have to ck out the spaceport and Chloride where I had planned to go several year back and help rebuild the mining town.

Re: traveling bug

Okay Nash...I'm so disappointed. You've not colored Texas yet. By the way, regardless of last Tuesday's out come. We are a republican state. So color appropriately. Geronimo is long gone but watch out for Sitting Bull, or was that Wyoming?

Re: traveling bug

Hey Chlese, thanks for the input on Lakeside RV Park. We are thinking of staying there next winter for a month. Do you feel safe there in the desert? As I previously posted, I had heard good things about it. Matter of fact I believe I originally read about it in one of the RV mags and then looked it up on line (www.RVparkreviews.com). Maybe because they are getting favorable press is why they are getting pricey. Either that or they are joining the rush to raise the RV camping rates. :(

Re: traveling bug

DL u would love Lakeside ,, it's been around for quit a bit ,, i used to work for the Unser's part time ,, when i was a kid ,, still in high school ,, anyway they had a drag boat ,, and every year around spring break time we would take out on EB ,, but we would run it on the lake about 5am ,, the lake is like glass then ,, boy did we get stuff thrown at us ,, and the cuss words that were said ,,,
In the later part of the day we would ski behind the boat ,, but i must say be very carefull around there ,, they have had a few murders and stuff ,, but again that was back in the mid 70's ,, so i hope they have updated since then ,, but agian have fun ;) :laugh: :laugh:

Re: traveling bug

Thanks Rod, we like to go to new areas as we RV and Elephant Butte, NM sounded good. We usually stay for a couple of days in Demming, NM then stay around Tucson, Benson, Sierra Grande, and Casa Grande in AZ. Staying a month in New Mexico seems like the thing to do for a change.

Re: traveling bug

DL, so far everything is fine here. I was a little dissapointed in their restroom as it only has one commode and really just one shower because you have to go through the first shower dressing area to get to the second shower. Bathroom was spotless. You can also use Passport America for unlimited time if space is available. We did the ride up 52 to Cuchille, winston and chloride and on into the Gila National Forest and it was a great side trip in the toad. We did the Geronimo scenic ride through the National park but it is very rough narrow, slow but scenic and you do need 4x4 in places. 50 miles of backroad. Probably will stay over longer so we can catch the spaceport and might just drive over to see the cave dewellings from here. There are plenty of parks in this area and there is a state park that we did ck out called Elephant Butte that is nice which charge 10 and 14 dollars per night.
