Wow great information, thank you and Happy New Year.

Caution US 285 north of Pecos, Tx. is very bad due to the oil field trucks that pound the pavement into little bits. Find an alternate route if possible.

Carlsbad Caverns NP is always a great stop, stay in the town of Carlsbad as no RV parking in the NP. Nearby is Sitting Bull Falls and nice waterfall in the desert and a great hiking trail above it.

Roswell and the UFO museum if fun in Roswell, NM. There are some NM State parks in the near that good for RVers.

I agree the fudge in Clines Corners is great.

Santa Fs has many museums and shops. The Georgia O'Keefe museum is great and is the Palace of the Governors. A drive up to the Santa Fe Ski Basin provides some nice hiking options.

West is Los Alamos and the Bradbury Museum largely about the Lab's work on nuclear weapons, very good. West of Los Alamos on NM 4 is some great mountain scenery at about 10,000ft. You'd be in the bottom of a volcanic caldera.

Agree ditch I-25 and go north to Taos, similar to what Santa Fe was like 30-40 years ago. Yes, go north a few miles and walk out on the Rio Grande Gorge bridge on US 64. Perhaps turn east at Taos and continue on US 64 to Eagle Nest, then Cimarron and back to I-25 at Springer or near Raton, NM.

In Colorado Springs there are many things to see and do. The Air Force Academy, plan on being there at noon. The Garden of the Gods is a great drive. The US Olympic Training Center is there.

That's a starting point on leg one.

Have fun and be safe....
Thank you very much!

Thank you for your information. Yes we store the RV and Jeep and fly back home. We use a Southwest credit card for business and just about everything else and use points and a companion pass for most of the airfare. Itís a great way to spend the time you have exploring further away from home. Although, last year our RV and Jeep were stolen from a storage facility in Jacksonville, Florida that was gated and had electronic surveillance. We did get the Jeep back but that is why we have a 2019 RV. Canít say enough nice things about Geico insurance.

Clines Corner is a gas station, travel stop, that dates back to the 1950's and has been added onto numerous times, with everything from cowboy boots and decorative signs to fast food and fudge. (we stopped there on our way to Santa Fe in October) Overall 285 from Cline Corner to Santa Fe seems to be a good road, though we did see alerts about it being one of the deadliest highways in NM, which made no sense to us.
Thank you for the information.
