Another New One from the Land of enchantment

I am also new to this site and am a long time resident to NM. We always look forward to getting out and going camping and hope to do more this year. We are always looking for groups to go with and camp with. We love the Ruidoso NM area and some good rv parks there.

If there is any groups in this area please let me know.

Steve

Welcome to iRV2. None of our groups are in NM. Start one up and see who wants to camp.

Ken

We spent a few months in Socorro in an RV park. I don't think there were any RVer's from IRV2 in that area. At least I never ran into any. But then we may have been lumped into the detestable "permanent residents in the old RVs" designation. There are several RV parks in Roswell. It's more of a destination area than the town we were in.

Welcome Steve,
Should I get out to New Mexico, one of the states I have not visited - well many years ago (39 - pulling a 15' Scotty TT) in my first wife time, in next year you can be my guide and we'll go camp. Maybe we can slip over to Arizona and visit the "Heart Attack Cafe" that I've heard about. Enjoy the forum.

Most states have local chapters of Good Sam Club, mfg'er groups, SMART (military), FMCA, etc ...some or more active than others. You just have to find the ones that are the active ones in your area.

I went to high school in Grants, but haven't lived in NM for many years. I do like to visit Albuquerque to visit family AND to enjoy the great bicycle trails around town ...both on and off the streets. In recent years, we have also stayed in Grants, Roswell and Deming. But we rarely do what we would call "camping" (been there, done that, in tents) ...now we're more "RVers" than "campers," though sometimes the different styles blend together some. Some differences we have noticed below...

Camper
- calls all RVs "the camper"
- goes to "campgrounds" / "campsites"
- seeks "campgrounds" with lots of activities, the more the merrier regardless of cost
- uses the camper on weekends/holidays/vacations/tail-gateing
- spends most of the weekend outside
- lots of "stuff" around the "campsite" and hanging off the "camper"
- eats most meals outside
- carries lots of people in "the camper", including lots of children
- loves large wood fires late into the night
- takes a pile of dirty clothes "back home" to do the laundry
- likely to have a trailer or small motorhome
RVer
- distinguishes between "RVs" and "Campers"
- stays in "RV parks" / "RV sites"
- seeks "RV parks" with reasonable costs, quiet setting, not lots of activities going on
- uses the RV anytime during the year
- spends about as much time outside as they would in a "stick" house
- not as much "stuff" around the RV
- eats some meals outside
- carries two, rarely more than four, people in the RV, occasional grandkids
- might occasionally do a wood fire a reasonable distance from the RV
- washes the dirty clothes in the RV or in the RV park laundromat as needed
- likely to have a fifth-wheel or motorhome
