Wintering in New Mexico

My favorite wife and I will be pulling our White Hawk to New Mexico from Michigan in January 2024, staying till early April. We'll probably start in Almagordo, using that as a hub, before moving on to another hub. We're seeking tips on places to stay, things to see and what to avoid. We will let the weather be our guide.

I would try to avoid the other wives when they find out they are not the favorite.

That is good advice, thankfully the non-favorite wives were not campers.

Reminds one of the old toast, "here's too out wives and girlfriends! May they never meet!"

Visit Las Cruces, some cool museums and great restaurants.

Highly advise to not cross the border into old Mexico.

White sands national park is a nice place to visit and very close to Alamogordo. Less than an hour away is Ruidoso, nice place to visit and has a great horse race track. All the small towns in that area have a lot of history behind them.

You might want to check out the “ Alamogordo zoo “ it opened in 1898. If you are at the lion Exhibit and you don’t see the lion, Look up! It’s a little expensive— $2.50 for seniors. The National Air and space museum is pretty cool. “ Ham the Astrochimp” is buried there ( first chimpanzee to go to space ( 1961 ). The exhibit in front of the museum is pretty impressive. I would avoid Albuquerque NM. the traffic is absolutely no fun.

If youíre a vet, check out Holloman AFB, they have dispersed and hook ups on base.

I am in High Rolls, just up the mountain from Alamogordo. There are lots of scenic places up here, and beyond in Cloudcroft. If we have good snow, there will be good tubing at Ski Cloudcroft (there is rarely skiing there anymore). Burro Street is worth a walk for the little shops. Lepree's has amazing food, as does Mad Jack's Mountaintop BBQ. If it's unseasonably warm, there may be live music at Cloudcroft Brewery.

The Haynes Canyon Overlook near MM 2 on Sunspot Highway is quite lovely near the end of the day. Sunspot Observatory is a bit farther, and occasionally has tours.

The Space History Museum is right there in Alamogordo, as is the Military Veteran's Museum.

The "world's biggest pistachio" is up US 54 towards Tularosa.

A word of caution: although Alamogordo is in the desert, it's high desert (4300 feet). In January, you CAN have hard freezes. Mind the forecast.
