RE: New Mexico Rt.82, Artesia to Alamogordo ?

Basic two lane, almost no shoulder, road through high scrub desert, oil fields and then mountain pine forest, before dropping down to high desert again, in the last 15 miles.

RE: Taos in late April and May?

If you are going to Durango from Taos via US64-US84-US160 there is some high country between Tres Piedras and Chama. The road is good but ice in the shady places can surprise you on what is otherwise a sunny day. Beautiful country though. It can snow up there even in May so as suggested watch the forecast.

RE: Deming NM East Via CR-26?

54 From Vaughn to Santa Rosa is a straight shot with a few rolling hills. From Carrizozo to Vaughn it is hilly with some narrow shoulders, sharpish curves, and has frequent and steeper grades although shorter. I think it is more scenic from Carrizozo to Vaughn but requires more attention to the road due to curves, critters, and traffic.

RE: Deming NM East Via CR-26?

US 60 follows the easier grade but both 60 and 380 climb out of the Rio Grande Basin. 380 has more scenic and historic attractions but is more up/down and around. 60 follows the railroad tracks and is straighter with gentle grades but still has some long pulls. I think you will be better off on 60 from your description. Plus, 54 is a much gentler ride from 60 north than from 380 north.

RE: Route Apache Junction AZ to El Paso TX in October

If you are not in a hurry and want to see scenery, just stay on 70 to Lordsburg instead of taking 191 south.

RE: Streaming versus Broadcast TV

"block buster type of mega movies or newer current TV shows) Have not found any of those I want to watch. My grandsons watch "blockbuster" movies but not me. Evan they admit it is more rewarding if they read the comics first for the movies. Tubi for movies, youtube for current content, cartoonsonline for humor and Al-Jazera for news.

RE: Santa Fe-Taos and Flagstaff suggestions please

Between Santa Fe and Espanola are several RV parks and Casinos with RV parking. Pojoaque has Road Runner RV park about half way between the two. There are also several campgrounds along the Rio Grande between Espanola and Taos near Pilar. OhKay Hotel Casino North of Espanola is an option also. Best fuel prices in the area. The Temps in Sep will be up in the 90's and upper 80's and 50's at night.

RE: TX HWY 21

Agree that TX secondary roads are better than most interstates. I have driven 21 as far as College Station but use US79 most of the time from Austin (Round Rock) to Shreveport. I have relatives all along 79 :) I know 79 is a good road for RV and is 4 lane for a lot of the way.

RE: Driving through Albuquerque during Balloon Festival

Well, there is always to option to stay on US 160 to US 84 and down to US 285 and Santa Fe. I agree that 160 to 84-285 is an easy scenic route that will not take much longer to get to I-40 and is one of my favorites. However, it seems like you are in a hurry if a few extra minutes of traffic in Bernalillo is a problem. Time your arrival in Bernalillo and Albuquerque to avoid rush hours and it should not be a problem to go through even during the festival.

RE: Delta, CO to Durango via 550

It can be done but it is not recommended. If you decide to try it make sure you watch the weather on the mountain. If the top is covered in clouds when you approach Ridgeway use US 62 at Ridgeway to go south. I have hit snow on Red Mountain in Aug when the valley was clear and 90. Check your tires, there is no shoulder for many long stretches of the way if you have a flat. If you are in a gas vehicle you will loose power as you gain altitude. Weekends are the worst time for heavy traffic over that route. Often it is bumper to bumper, particularly behind slow vehicles like yours will be. It is a pretty drive but only your passenger should be watching the scenery. BTW I lived up there for 13 years.
