New Mexico Rally!

I am putting together information for a May, June, July, August, and Sept 2015 Rally for Fiberglass campers in New Mexico and Southern Colorado. Come join the fun. I am thinking of three day weekend trips to the PECOS, Cochiti, Chama, and other beautiful locations. Sites book quickly so let's plan some dates. Please respond if you're interested in joining. And....EVERYONE is welcome regardless of your current location, I am just suggesting this area because this is where I am located but if you're planning on passing through this area during these months, please let me know!

I would love to do this but need to plan a trip like this much further in advance. I hope you are very successful and this becomes an annual event. New Mexico would be a great destination.

Hey John. I will be in N M sometime in late June. Have you ever pulled your Burro to Chaco Canyon? I have been before but just for a day trip. The road was like a wash board. I also have a 13 ft. 1982 Burro. Would probably have to drive the 20 miles in very slow. Thanks, joe

Hello Joe, no I haven't but I have camped there in a tent. There is a long 16 mile dirt road but they keep it in EXCELLENT condition. Let me know when you'll be in town. I'd love to meet up! I think I may be in Yellowstone the last two weeks of June but you never know!

Sounds great, but this year is booked-up for us, but perhaps next year.

I beg to differ. The road is awful, unless they have moved some huge amounts of gravel and graded it superbly in the last twelve months. We love Chaco and visited it for the third time in spring 2014. Entered on the southern access road which was "OK", exited on the northern road, which was an absolute nightmare. Have you ever driven on sixteen miles of bedrock? I spent 45 minutes fixing/securing stuff that broke loose when we returned to the paved road.

We are in VT but travel to CO several times a year, a rally in NM sounds interesting!

Hopefully I can see Chaco Canyon without taking a trailer. Was told it is a fantastic place and that I should go there for sure.

Chaco Astronomy

Look the place up before you go, to see when they do their stargazing parties. There is an impressive astronomical observatory there. It is a neat place in many ways.

It ranks right up there in the middle of no where as one of the worst washboard roads. I know a guy who drove that Chaco Canyon road. His Scamp had a brand new Dexter axle, wheel, brakes, drum assembly. Screws came loose in the brake drum, halfway to Chaco. Things bound up inside, friction and heat drained out all the grease in the bearings. He's lucky he got the thing to the campground, but now he's thirty miles from the highway. Said he got help from a ranger who was a mechanic.

(No, it wasn't me.)
