wa3pnt: Well said. I think the aluminum trees are pretty, too. Not to mention all the good that can be done with them. They may well end up helipng the communities that they are in.

wa3pnt: You did say it well. I have helped in a tornado disaster where the ham radios were the only things that would work. But those that have not "been there.done that" situation do not realize the help you all are. And besides once a tower is up, you look past it and it is not a solid wall to block the view. I would welcome you as a neighbor.

Chilegal....your always so friendly to everyone and always welcoming ...so if i make it up to Timberon i'll have to say hey to everyone there. I stiill remember the Timberon Lodge if i'm correct of the name and place as its been years since i've been up there before they paved the road to Sunspot. It's so remote and peaceful there and not the daily grime of the city life where i'm at now or other large cities i've lived in the past around the good o'l USA....

Heck who know's maybe a fellow illiniosian (is that correct term) like yourself and i.e. ....Steve-O ......maybe he'll come down to visit you guys over there....lol.....

harry......

Thanks Harry,
Timberon is wonderful, you would enjoy it up there. And the road is paved all the way now! But I am in Alamo a lot also so let me know when you come down. Just wish I was there right now but am back in IL with grandson due to arrive this month. Mom will need the help.

We spend a couple of days in Alamo and kind of liked the place. If I needed work after I retired I would really consider the town. If you want to know about the roads to the mountains check out 6"3's video. If you want to know about nightclubs I cannot help you because what little drinking I do is at home. That being said wherever there are more than 200 people there is a bar and a night drinking/entertainment scene. For example there is a bar at the junction of Rt 23 & Rt 26 west of Las Cruces.

They were a little squidly, but they were just having a good time, not flipping people off or anything. Probably they were celebrating not being stuck behind an RV. They weren't exactly cruising...they were making time.

Can someone recommend a RV Park in Alamogordo? We have two miniature Daschunds, so Park must allow pets.

Thanks for any suggestions.

By way of background, My wife and I have a home in Yuma, AZ, which is on the market, and are moving to Alamogordo. If we cannot find a suitable established Site built Home, we contemplate building.

Some of our requirements for the new location are the ability to park our RV on the property, the ability to put up my 89' Amateur Radio Tower (self supporting, no guys), .5 to 2 Acres lot size, and access off of a paved road.

The cost of raw land development (Well, Septic, Electric, etc.) pushes us in the direction of a subdivision, but the above requirements may dictate otherwise.

Plans are for a 4 bedroom home approximately 2500 SqFt, with garage. The ability to construct an outbuilding for a shop and possible RV Storage would be a big plus.

My wife remains at our home most of the year, but I travel extensively providing Scoreboard and Sound for Rodeos throughout the west. In fact, we plan to go to Alamogordo on about 2 October on our way to Las Cruces to do the Sound at the Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo the 5-7th of October.

Of course the selling price of our home in Yuma will dictate the funding available for the Alamogordo end.

Other locations in the near vicinity of Alamogordo such as La Luz, Tularosa, and Three Rivers are also an option providing that they are similar to Alamogordo with respect to climate.

Okay, comments please!

Thanks,

George & Carolyn
Your handle (WA3PNT) looks like an Amateur Radio call sign from the Middle Atlantic States; might that be correct? KN3TFM
