RV Park in Albuquerque, NM

We plan our first southern trip to NM in January. We have interest in Deming and Albuquerque. We see American RV park listed for Albuquerque. Has anyone any information on this park? Is there a significant difference in temperature in the two areas?

We expect to spend two months. Would love any suggestions for a NM trip.

American RV is Very Nice. We stay there when in Albuq. Deming is much warmer that time of the year.

RV park in Deming, NM

I was suspicious that it might be a little warmer in Deming. We found Deming Roadrunner RV park there that may work for us. Do you have any info on this?

American

Albuquerque offers a lot to do. American RV is proably one of if not the nicest RV parks we have. It is on the edge of town and on the west side. You will have to come through a construction zone on the interstate to get into town but as long as you arent doing it during rush hour you should be ok.

I don't know anything about what deming offers.

Abq is closer to Santa Fe if you plan on spendinf anytime there which is recommended. Just bring your Wallet. Santa Fe has much to offer and lots to buy.

Red

I prefer Red on most things unless its a breakfast burrito then green with Charizo is the way to go.

Don't forget the East side of ALBQ!

Don't forget!

There are plenty of places to camp on the East side of ALBQ also. The East Mountains are beautiful. And you can shoot straight up Rt 14 into SantaFe. Very pretty road. Scenic too and very trailer friendly! Also, goes right through the Artist village of Madrid - a place to visit of that is highly recommended. Usually MOBBED in the summer as there are lots of jewelry places and art galleries and rug shops and even a decent biker bar. Hey, it's NM!

Plus I-25 between Santa Fe and ALBQ is a crazy race track that has seemingly hourly wrecks that can turn a 1 hour ride into several hours within the blink of and eye! Rt 14 between Cedar Crest and Santa Fe even has a pyramid that you can visit! Think it is a monestary or something. Gorgeous rock formations at every turn too. Very nice drive and lots to see.

And if you come up Rt 14 and want red chili, green or the BEST DOG GONE SALSA up here I can personally recommend ChiliPenos restaurant, right before the Sandia Crest cut off ( NOT a trailer friendly road!). Best Salsa I have ever had - period. Burger Boy, in Cedar Crest, is famous too!

Heck, if you are coming up, through or past this way, send me an email with your info and I'll be glad to help you plan your time in this area. Lots to see, do and experience. Hey, in a week or 2 you could even ski here!

Hey, a little boosterism can't hurt can it? Can't wait to see you!

Ciao

Axel

Red, green....

Gen. Disarray -

Fraid not, the green is ALWAYS way hotter. Green Chili Cheese burger is one of the true GIFTS of the gods when doen right. Burger Boy on Rt 14 dos do it right. A true "do not miss it", IMO. "Make mine green, and ALL OVER IT!"

Huh... Red AND green, baby! Christmas style! Western Sky in Taos. Waitress saw me sweating and asked if I was OK. I just smiled and asked for more water. I was in pain, but it was a GOOD kind of pain!
