Hi again. Thanks for all the help given in my original thread.
I know for some this will seem like we're moving a lot, but we rarely stay in the same campground for more than 3-4 days unless there is a ton to do close by. We prefer moving the RV a 100 or so miles, to driving the Jeep that far for more than 1 day to do things. We spend a lot of time on unpaved roads, which can make for a long day.
So, with that in mind, I'd love your thoughts. And especially need suggestions for places I've not made reservations yet.
Here's what I've got:
Oct. 20 - Leave Mineral Wells SP, TX and spend 2 nights somewhere between Roswell and Oliver Lee SP. (Would like to just make a long day of it and push on down to Oliver Lee but no open spots. Option would be to see if we could push our dates at Mineral Wells to the 20th and 21st and add 2 days elsewhere in the trip.)
Oct 20 & 21 - overnight ??? maybe near Ruidoso and go to Sunspot from there rather than from Oliver Lee (?)
Oct 22-24 Oliver Lee SP
Oct 25-28 - Leasburg Dam SP Doing stuff in all directions from here.
Oct 29-Nov 1 - City of Rocks SP (non-electric site) There's a lot we want to do in the Gila NF and Wilderness. Would we better off to get a hook-up site in Silver City?
Nov 2-4 Several places to go/things to do between Socorro and Datil areas but have no idea where to stay. (Valley of Fires is farther than we want to drive every day in addition to the other driving we'll be doing - mostly slow-going on unpaved roads.)
Nov 5 - Valley of Fires SP
Nov 6 - Brantley Lake SP Have been to Carlsbad, so not going there. Staying here to go to Sitting Bull Falls and drive Guadalupe Backcountry By-way.
Nov 7 & 8 - Guadalupe Mountains NP (if we can get a spot)
Nov 9 & 10 Davis Mt. SP
Nov 11-13 (or 14) Study Butte area for that side of Big Bend NP and Big Bend Ranch SP
Nov 14-17 (or 15-17) Rio Grande Village
Nov 18 - start for home
If we cut out the 2 days between Mineral Wells and Oliver Lee, they'll go somewhere after City of Rocks. Suggestions?
I know this long, so thanks in advance to those who have gotten this far.
Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
