Very nice! We'll be not far from there in a few weeks. Northern NM and Southern Colorado are hard to beat!

When we blogged our Canada/Alaska trip last summer we often posted from McDonalds along the way. Gave us a chance to get a coffee and a cookie at the same time!

Meanwhile, best wishes for a good trip. Have more fun than you thought possible!

Are we making a high tech joke here? Droll, very droll.

We go to Aspen Glade NFS Campground on the Conejos between Chama and Antonito and really enjoy it. Maybe about 4 hours from ABQ.

Oh, that's a 'go', thanks.

This spot is near the Costilla Campground but not in it. I have found that the Honda 2000i Genny is a bit taxed by the CoolCat A/C unit...so I have two of them. I can run everything else on a single unit, if I need the A/C I just hook them together with the little joining kit and VOILA! We have A/C! I run one generator all night because I use a CPAP unit to sleep. I have used the Honda 2000i genny many times in campgrounds and never had a complaint. It really makes a gentle, soothing sort of purring sound that is the perfect white noise to fall asleep to.
Fortunately, we have yet to need our A/C unit in Northern NM or Colorado, it's always chilly at night in the places we camp. I have used the furnace a lot of times, especially in the morning when you crawl out of a nice warm bed and it is 45 degrees outside...in August! :>} Camping out in heat and humidity with bugs is not my idea of a fun time. If it is too hot to sleep inside a warm sleeping bag, I'd just as soon stay home.
