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.

Thanks Brad, for the directions to the OWL. The New Mexican and the Mexican food is AWSOME in this part of the country. I will stop by the Owl the next time I make the treck to Albuquerque and that famous Green Chile Cheeseburger. I hope they get their chilis from the Hatch, NM area (chili capital of the world) and I hope its Hot.

Geeez, small world. With all these NM owners I would expect to see an Airstream around every bend. We call Sumner Lake home (16 mi. north of Fort Sumner). We're listed in the WBCCI guide as having parking so if you are in the area please visit. Cheers!

Jon,

Thanks for the post and the offer of parking. Linda and I know the northwest corner of the state very well, but we're pretty green when it comes to the rest of the state. We're looking for places where we can camp. She's especially interested in places where there's also a body of water- doesn't have to be a big lake or anything.

Just need to get that two vehicle this spring! Can't wait until I have my Tundra.

Thanks again!

Jay

For AZTLANCO, expect to receive your fries before the burger arrives. Also of interest is the dollar bills tacked to the walls by travelers. Every Christmas they take them down and give donations to various needy organizations. Usually amounts to a couple thousand dollars. The chile (NM spelling) is usually hot and from Hatch.

For John HD, I have a 2004 VROD now. Had a hip replacement in 2004 and Surgeon suggested I get a lighter bike (like I needed an excuse to get a new bike). Wanted a VROD since I saw the first one at the HD display at Sturgis in 2001 (we were allowed to look, sit-on, listen to the motor, but NOT ride). Prior to this, (I have had many metric bikes over the past 30 years) I had a 93 Sporster with 26k, and sold my 97 Road King with 97k on it prior to the VROD which now has 28K and adding more. Hope to see you on the road, either riding on ASing.

What is it about Airstreams and Harley Davidsons? Seems like everybody and their cousin have one . Maybe one of these days,, we will meet at one of the Christmas Runs, either El Paso or Las Cruces at the barn. I'l be driving my 65' Panhead (purple) on a ridgid frame, old time springer frt. end and 3" open belt drive.
Keep the rubber side down and the shinny side up!

i think people who have either recognize the qualities of both.

here is a snap of my unit after the fork rebuild. it was a balmy 35 with clear roads so i took her out for a test run...

Welcome Quicksilver

We also have a Quicksilver and travel a lot to Colorado and New mexico. My
husbands sister lives in Sante Fe so we have a fun "camp" on the way to Texas to visit children in Waco and San Antonio. When in Texas you should seek out Corp parks they are usually on water and we have always enjoyed
them. Our Bambi is in storage until mid March so I envy you travlin around. Our first trip will be to NM and Texas. Do you have a lot of "Lookie Loos"? People stop us all the time, and young kids love it...always say "Coool Trailer"
We travel with two Kerry Blue Terriers and folks are amazed at the space we
have. Hope to see you on the road and Happy ,Trails John & Betty
