Naw, bring the boat, there's lots of big reseviors to launch it in. Small ones too. The only stingy places where you might not be able to launch are on tribal lands and they aren't many or any near Roswell.

Good!!! That makes me EXTREMELY happy! I just gotta get a hitch lock so it doesn't get stolen, I suppose.

Thanks a ton everyone!

There's lots of good places to fish here in Texas that aren't too far from Roswell too!

LawmanRiley,

Whenever I used to go to Roswell -- usually during their annual UFO Festival -- I always had to be super vigilant in order to better avoid being abducted by aliens.

Be careful out there, especially when on those back roads late at night in the desert...

Hahaha I love it!

I'm thoroughly excited to experience New Mexico. Are there good mountain biking trails down there? I know people can hike everywhere, but I haven't been able to mountain bike since I left California!

I don't know Roswell that well as I usually pass through, and when I DO stay there visiting, I'm in the center of town so I can't say where trails are on the outskirts of Roswell...you'll have to wait for a local to come by here and answer that one. There are no "mountains" there, just lots of rolling hills, sagebrush, mesquite, arroyos, mesas and such...typical NM/West Texas geography.

I CAN say there is PLENTY of desert/wilderness area in NM -- it's a big, sparsely-populated and wide-open-space state -- but that's kind of deceptive in a way because a lot of "deserted" land is occupied by cattle ranches with barbed wire fencing, gates and posted (no tresspassing)...even though you see no houses/people anywhere -- just meandering dirt/gravel roads going way out there for miles -- all the way to the horizon. So I can't say where public access lands/trails would be. I know of some biking/hiking trails in Albuquerque, but that's nowhere near Roswell.

Crime and its prevention are not a priority of the City Council. They want folks to retire here, but treat our law enforcement like dirt. For a policeman, the pay is low and the risk is high. The city has even defied court orders to pay the officers more. We have a huge gang problem for our population density. Personally, I feel the cops do a very good job with what they've got, but they should have so much more.
