A few people are planning a trip for a 2 week excursion to New Mexico this coming year (some of which may be on this site) using the routes on the NMBDR.

My father and I will be taking the 4runner on the 4,300 mile (approx.) journey in July - August time frame. As of right now, it will consist of 3 days travel to from Charlotte to Dell City, TX - a week long excursion on the NMBDR up to Antonito, CO - and a 3 day hike back to Charlotte, NC


I will be adding actual trip updates in this thread and will be adding all pre-trip and post-trip vehicle preparation in the '88 Runner grocery getter thread

Do some daily video blogs for us with pics. Come hell or high water, I will be taking my pathy on a long off road trip like this some day. Need to focus on buying a house for now though.
Since you lived out west, where abouts have you explored Rafael? Is there any areas on the east side that interest you? I feel as if the west to mid-west really hold the key but I also feel as if there should be a lot of areas right here on the east side. I am even thinking Canada would have lots to offer.


To actually do the excursion is fairly cheap, especially splitting the cost with another person (the only way to do it). But I think my biggest hit will be the 8 - 10 days of lost wages at work since my PTO is all gone. But if you had some PTO time, that could really offset the cost as well...


I plan on taking a trip out to Uwharrie sometime in the spring to get a feel for what works and what doesn't so I don't mistakenly bring unneeded items, and of course, the opposite.
