Welcome HOG-1 We started searching for a 16 Bambi. CCD. Living in New York State and still both working. We could not locate one in our neighborhood. We did locate a 20 ft Globetrotter. 1967. We purchased it in July and had work to do. Now it is winterized and waiting for Spring and short trips. ENJOY.

Those white sided RV's are everywhere, including on the side of the road. :-) During a recent trip to Heron Lake up by Chama we saw one that was literally all over the road in itty bitty bits. That RV was destroyed. I am so very thankful to have an AS, bet they don't end up in pieces. It would be great to get together with other NM streamers. Bet there are quite a few of us around. Up here in Northern NM we see AS in yards, many look like they have been their for years, unloved and unused. At times, we want to ask if they are for sale, but we already have two. Not sure if you can have too many though. Every one of them is unique after all--- ;-)

New Mexico Airstreamers

Hi HOG-I

Welcome to the world of Airstreaming and the Airstream Forums!

We live in Albuquerque. My wife and I own 2 Airstreams, a 95 and a 61. I have been busy these last few weeks polishing the exterior of the 61. Boy is that a lot of work!

You have at least 5 other Airstreamers in Las Cruces;
Argonaut20
Don/Dawnita
MickeyB
Mike.G.
seedylc

There are a lot of Airstreamers in New Mexico.

The existing WBCCI New Mexico Unit #69 has about 50 members but only about a dozen or so participate in rallies. Most of the members are older. They like to have card parties in various members homes. When they do go camping, it is generally to commercial campgrounds with meeting rooms. They are a traditional unit, i.e., they like to have meetings, wear the jackets, etc.
Their web site is;
Airstream Association of New Mexico, WBCCI Region 11

Some of us have wanted something different and have petitioned WBCCI for the formation of a new Four Corners Unit. Presently we have about 24 interested Airstreamers. You can learn more about us at;
Four Corners Airstream Camping Unit
Check out our rally schedule and join us if you wish.
Jerry

PS: Don't forget to stick in your pin on the Airstream Forums Members Map.

Thanks everyone for the welcome. To Mike, we may well have met as I have been to the Rally in the Rockies (formerly Iron Horse Rally) since 99 and have been to Farmington HD a couple of times. Eubank, I have also attended every Red River Memorial Day Rally since 99 and plan to attend next year. Hope to see you NM types on the road. HOG-I

Yes, the Red River thing at Memorial Day is quite a big deal. There's spill-over all over the area (Taos, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, even Cimarron). The folks we get here in Angel Fire for the RR event are primarily bike-riding Vietnam veterans, a bit older, wiser, and quieter for the wear (and here because of the memorial up on the hill).

My wife and I newbies as well. We're interested in NM forums and places to visit in NM and the southwest. We don't even have a vehicle to tow the 2003 22' CCD yet, but I'm hoping to get a Tundra this spring. In the meantime, the trailer sits next to our house on our 40 acres with views of the Manzano Mountains (east slope). There's snow on the Manzanos at the moment and the view is great. We lived in our Airstream while the house was being completed. I placed our pin on the forum member's map. Hope everyone has a great New Year!

Thanks for the welcome John. My cousin and her hubby live in Madison and he has a bike shop there. You wouldn't happen to know Eugene (Gene) Rafferty, would you?

Dang! It is a small world. His wife, Suzy, and I are cousins. I haven't seen her in years. I last saw Gene when I was in Madison several years ago. Got a tattoo in a little shop. Mentioned that my cousin lived there and the quy asked who she was. He knew her and said, "Gene works next door". Went over and chatted with him a bit. That's probably been 10 years ago now.

Anyway, thanks for the response!

Welcome HOG-I;
Don't forget you also have a few friends and neighbors here in El Paso which is only a stones-throw-away from Las Cruces.
Where exactly is "the Owl"? I make the trip to Albuquerque quite often and have never seen it.

Get off I-25 in San Antonio (NM) - route 380. It is not 1/2 mile off the highway. It looks like a dump, though - don't be fooled. Awesome.
