If you have the money in the budget, consider satellite internet.

Rodney,
I have looked into satellite internet, but everything I've found indicates it doesn't play well with VPN. Otherwise I'd have it.

Last time we took that road was more than 20 years ago. I assume you mean the one that goes to 550 from Ophir. A high centered 2wd pickup could have made it then, certainly not for an Airstream. I doubt it is any better now.

Got you beat, Gene. I tried it in 1968 with my 1967 VW Beetle. Didn't make it and had to back down a mountainside a looooong way.

Thx. Thought it might be out of the question. Can't always tell from google earth! Just wanted to change up the telluride trip instead of back tracking through Dolores.

We just spent several weeks in NM and one of my favorite experiences was a trip to Acoma Pueblo (Sky City) about 50 miles west of Albquerque, but then, I'm a nerd and love history!!! Also, the petroglyphs were the best we've seen so far.

Trailer Ranch RV Resort in Santa Fe was wonderful. We stayed a week! Also, try breakfast at Tune-Up Cafe in Santa Fe (Diners, Drive Ins, & Dives). Chaco Canyon near Bloomfield is really "off the grid" but we parked the AS in Bloomfield and camped one night at Chaco in the truck. Again, Native American history and nerd!!! Loved it!

Regarding Airstream camping, I find that generally the better the scenery gets, the worse the cell reception. I also use Verizon and my solution to the reception issue is an external antenna plus an amplifier. To effectively use data on the Internet, a stronger signal is needed than what might suffice for a voice call. Wilson makes a number of suitable equipment choices.

How did your trip go? We are possibly looking at something similar way down the road in 2014.

MsRivet,

Our trip went very well.

We started off in Colorado Springs, headed up to Denver for Alumafandango, down to Great Sand Dunes, over to Durango, then down to Albuquerque, with lots of sightseeing in the areas we were. We typically pick a "home base" for a couple weeks or more and then drive around to enjoy the general vicinity before heading further down the road.

We blogged our trip, starting with this post.

We spent a good amount of time boondocking, State Parks, and private campgrounds last year in Co, NM, and AZ. We use an ATT IPhone5 for GPS and an IPad4/Macbook Pro for internet. Except in some of the mountain pass/ crevasses above 10,000k we very seldom lost connectivity for more than an hour or so and anybody who wished to contact us could leave a text message.While camping was great in all of the States mentioned, Flyfishing was good in the numerous creeks of Gunnison Nat'l Forest, CO and outstanding near Angel Fire, NM. We believe NM has the best State Park system of the three in terms of quantity, quality, and variety of attractions. I volunteer with Arizona State Parks so I know a bit about them.
