New Mexico Newbie

I just found this site thru Airstream Life. We bought our Bambi 16 Quick Silver in late July. For died in the wool hotel/motel types we have really gone, head over heals,for the trailer life. After a couple weekend trips for familarization we did a three week trip to Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota, Colorado and home (Las Cruces). We are not much into cooking so the 16 fits our needs without giving up a lot of space to kitchen. Our two Yorkies have given their stamp of approval. Just when I thought I was getting pretty good at the arrival and exit routine I forgot to close the release valve on the black water tank and when I took the cap off I REALIZED my mistake - ugh!!. Should have learned from my Harley riding that you never get TOO good to make a mistake. We did a week and a half seeing some of NM and Airzona a month back and are planning a trip to Big Ben in Janurary. I can see I have a lot of reading to do to catch up.

Welcome! We were just in your neighborhood in the last few weeks (on Rt 380 between Quemado and Tatum) going to and coming back from Death Valley. You live in a beautiful part of the world - can't wait to get back and grab another Green Chili Cheeseburger at the Owl.

There are some posts on Big Bend - we were there last Thanksgiving, and it is spectacular. There was also an article recently in Airstream Life about Big Bend.

Smile Thanks for the welcome.

My vehicles automatically turn off at San Antonio and head for the Owl Bar. On your next trip, especially in late fall or early spring, a trip 10mi. south of San Antonio to the Bosque del Apache is a real attraction for bird (big birds) watching. Snow Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Golden and Bald Eagles, etc. They number in the thousands. I've been to Big Ben on the bike twice but my wife has yet to see it. We will probably stay in Terlingua as they have a nice RV park. Everyone needs to come to NM as there is very secnic country from North to South and East to West.

We call NM home also - Cow Creek which is in the mountains near Santa Fe. We strarted with a 16' CCD Bambi, loved it but needed more space, then moved up to a 22' CCD, needed more space and now have a 28' CCD and love it. We have been up the west coast and down through Yellowstone and Brice Canyon. At the end of this year we will have been in the twinkie for over eight months! We have fallen in love with Airstreams and can't get enough of life on the road. Have fun!!

Welcome Hog-I----Greetings from Farminton NM ----We possibly have met---I was the service Mgr of the Harley shop here in farm. from 1990-2001 before retiring. You'll find many similarities with HD'S and AS'S. Both identify with their origin and still retain a modern product. Lots of history. Like Pecos Pete we've done the trade thing several times. Started with a Bambi {sporster} traded for 25' Classic {super glide} then to a 30' Classic {electra glide}. We spent nearly 6 monthin ors last year and plan to go full time come spring.pieman

Hey, let's get a whole New Mexico thing here

Airstreams seem more scarce here than in other places. I just don't catch as many glimpses of silver as I'd like.

Any yeah, long live the Owl!

Welcome to the forum! We New Mexicans are getting to be fairly numerous. I'm sure glad to see that! When we first moved up here (Angel Fire), we felt a bit, well, blinded by the light of a gazillion ugly, white-sided RVs.
