I will be arriving at the airport, and need to get to Las Vegas, NM do you have an airport suttle service?
And what would be the cost.
Hi I'm a female thinking to drive through New Mexico over Carlsbad to Ca in a couple weeks with my 16 yr old son and wonder if it'd be a safe trip for us. We'll sleep in the car either at national parks or TA , the closest to Carsbad being at Las Cruces .Any comments are greatly appreciated. This will be our first long distance car travel experience.
With the budget impasse, the park is closed until the government is again funded.
Are the sites accessible with the park closed? It will be a great loss to not have the visitor center and ranger guides, but it will be even worse to not see the park at all.
Hi, i am traveling to santa fe for 2 days with my elderly mom.. She walks with a cane, fairly slowly and cant walk very long distances. Would it be better to stay farther from downtown and just drive and park at the various areas, or try to stay right near the center of town and try to walk (slowly) to things. also, does anyone have a suggestion for a nice hotel/inn that would be good for 3 adults (my sister is traveling with us also.,) What would be something that we shouldnt miss while we are in santa fe? thanks, Maggiefoss
Planning a trip for the first week in November, is there usually snow by that time of year and if so how much? thanks
Hi, I have been to Albuquerque 3 times in the past year to visit my daughter and family. They moved there a little over a year ago. Two times we have driven there and in August I flew there. Every single time I've gone there I get very sick with diarrhea and vomiting. I mean REALLY sick. I had to go to the hospital in August due to being so dehydrated. No one can tell me why I keep getting sick. I don't get sick at home or anywhere else we travel to. If anyone has any idea please post and let me know. We are going to be going again Oct 5 and I am scared to death to go. Please help if you can. Thank you, Donna
Is there a bus tour to and through Chaco Canyon?
Hi. My wife and I are soon to be traveling to CC to do some of the ranger guided cave tours. We anticipate 5 or 6 of the tours, over a 3 or 4 day period. Some will be the easy ones, all the way up to the Strenuous tours. My question to any of you experienced cave explorers... Is it feasible to do say a moderate and a Strenuous cave tour in a single day (time permitting)? What are the pitfalls? We are both in better than average shape and being on our feet for 8-10 hours a day isn't a problem.
Also, given the White Nose Syndrome issue with the bats, how do we go about making sure our gear is cleaned? We're getting helmets, lamps, etc. from the ranger, but what about our clothes, shoes, flashlights, kneepads? Is there a washout area or what do we do?
Thanks a bunch in advance. Any other pertinent information you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
Where is a simple, cheap place to sleep just one night in each on way to Co?

Wife and I are in our mid/late 60s with knee/ankle arthritis. For trip over July 4th weekend, will we be able to do most of inter-site travelling by 4 wheel drive and keeping hiking to reasonable levels?
I'll be in Albuquerque area from June 3 - June 7, 2013, just wondering if there are any special festivals, parades, etc. during this time period. I already have a balloon ride scheduled, can hardly wait.
Arriving in ABQ towards late afternoon, with the next full day to stay there, but actually don't want to miss out on Santa Fe before moving on. Staying at Best Western Rio Grande. We'll probably go into the Old town after our arrival in the late afternoon; any ideas where to eat some good NM chow? Better to stay in the center or is there anywhere decent near the hotel? And on day 2: is it realistic to travel to Santa Fe via the Turquoise Trail, coming back via El Camino Real? What's parking like in Santa Fe? Is it better to eat somewhere on the road before getting there? We also want to visit a pueblo but they all look as if the journey north of SF would add on miles/time to our day, taking away from the time spent in SF. Are there any interesting pueblos west of ABQ which we could visit on our way out on day 3? Not ones with guided tours.
Bit of a broad question, we are travelling from Flagstaff to Santa fe. Think doing it in one day is a bit to much.
Thinking of stopping in Albuquerque to get up early and go along the Turquoise Trail. Thats still a big drive between Flagstaff and Albuquerque. Any other sugestions for somewhere to stay enroute so we are not driving miles and will we be missing lots of interest on the way?
Sorry for broad question but just worried about driving 400 miles Flagstaff to Santa Fe in one go.
Hope to ask more specific questions later so please be patient!

Wishing to do a Hoover Dam tour in a Hummer from Vegas. A few companies to choose from it seems. Anyone got any experiences / recommendations please ?
My husband and I are contemplating a two-week vacation in September – likely starting in Albuquerque and driving counter-clockwise through Colorado, Utah, and Arizona before returning to Albuquerque. We would appreciate any tips, warnings, recommendations, etc., anyone could offer us. Such as: What weather can we anticipate during that time? Are there some roads we should avoid (we’ll be renting a medium size sedan – not an SUV)? Anything in that general area which is considered a must-see/must-do (keeping in mind I’m 55 and my husband is 65)? Or anything else you’d deem that we should know before we go. Thanks for your help!
I recently graceless to Colorado and was looking for some horse hail pottery. The pottery in Colorado was very expensive. My dad always brought me back a piece of horse hair pottery when he went elk hunting in new Mexico and I know he didn't pay much for them. Can anyone tell me where at in new Mexico I can get some that is not so expensive.?

Okay... My plan is to go to Santa Fe, NM September 2012, but am trying to figure out what I need to plan for (I'm a freak about writing and rewriting and rewriting lists, ect)...
My main reason for going is Georgia O'Keeffe. I'm hoping to be able to go on the tour of her home/studio. The problem is that I don't drive because of a vision problem.. Is there a way to get from Santa Fe to Abiquiu relatively simply without personally driving there?
Looking to fly from east coast then drive to Silver City, NM to hike a couple weeks. Is there transport (bus, etc.) from any area airport (Tucson, Albuquerque, Phoenix) or cost-efficient 1-way rental from airports with drop in Silver City. (A 1-day rental to drive from Tucson to LasCruces (where I STILL need a ride) was215!!!
I'd appreciate advice on where to visit late March/early April '12. Two adult couples; guys like golf and the ladies like the pool and spa. Shopping not important. We'd like a "home base" where we could also enjoy day trips for sightseeing. We are concerned about the weather as we are coming form the cold north and want warmth. Thanks for your help.
