So looks like NM it is. We were thinking of going to Ireland and it is quiet funny that I ended up in copying a trip report from a guy in Chicago that is a DE for Dublin. Guess who I will ask questions when Ireland comes along maybe next year!!
So Keith - read most of it and actually downloaded it to One Note to take with me. I did read the first one in full and the second one about 75%. I am still learning One Note :(
Still not sure what all we will do - but we will get in the car and drive - first stop Carlsbad (maybe 2 nights) then maybe ABQ (maybe 3 nights) and SF maybe (4 or 5 nights - 2 might be in Taos). Then on the way back maybe Roswell.
The non smokers motel sounds like a good deal - so we might try that. Not big into B&B's - so have an eye on a few hotels / motels in SF. I am sure we will do less than half of what Keith accomplished. The earth ship thing sounds interesting (Taos).
Plan to leave around the 22nd - might leave a day early and stop in San Antonio. Although I will dread the drive out of Texas - the fact I don't have to go through an airport - can change plans at a moments notice - is worth it. Cost of gas will actually equal 2 tickets to ABQ. But will save on the rental car.
I guess I did not really have a question but at the same time did not want to bump up Keith's Trip report post - or maybe I should have done that LOL.
Lot of good information - thanks all. If I have any specifics will ask.
