Routing in NM help

Hello,

Anyone familiar with US 82 from Artesia to Alamagordo New Mexico? Please advise if that route is suitable for a 40' with towed. I am comfortable with mountain routes. Ultimate destination is Las Cruces. Thanks for any knowledge.

Two lane, with curves, drop off the mountain out of Cloudcroft to Alamorgordo. Slow and you have to put up with the traffic. Good views. 4 lane from Almo to Cruces. I have done it many times, no problem.

Great road...

...just be leery about elk and deer, they really come out around Cloudcroft near sunset. And the change of scenery, with the change in elevation, is really pretty cool.

I didn't think about the deer or elk thing. I usually try to not travel thru there early morning or late evening. I spend a lot of time on the motorcycle in that part of the country.
A little bit about places to eat. Big rigs are going to be hard to find parking in some locations. As you hit Mayhill, the Mayhill Cafe and Hotel is on the right side of the road, just good food. In Cloudcroft, near the Allsups convience store is a good place to park, if you want to walk around Cloudcroft. Just stay out of the Tourquiose Shop, east end of the town strip, if you want to save a few $. Give Carol, our best and she will treat you right. My guess you will be staying near Mesilla. Andele's is a super place to eat, true NM Mexican. Double Eagle in Mesilla is also nice, a little more upscale. Green Chile Cheeseburgers, Dick's Cafe, Valley Drive. Mesilla Valley Kitchen on Lohman for breakfast. Ranchway on Valley Drive, Mexican and BBQ. Just a few places we visit. We usually hang out at the smaller local establishments. Most places know me, that could be bad. Just mention my name, and throw in Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association and they will know who we are. There are plenty of national chain stuff in the area as well. Enjoy your stay in NM. Spend lots of $$$$$. Jim
