Thumbs up Moving to Timberon

nmthorell: I envy you. Timberon would seem to have the most perfect climate in NM, as far as I'm concerned. I hope to ride my motorcycle out there next fall to look it over. High elevation at southerly latitude sounds ideal. It's fairly isolated, but I think I could live with that.

Catman,
It is a lovely community. Its great watching the wildlife, and sit on the porch and listen to the breeze blow through the trees.
I just talked to a friend there and she said there were people moving in from CA, TX,MI,and AZ. And those were just the ones she knew about.
Come out for a tour.
Jane

Default I can hardly wait to visit

I certainly will, Jane! It sounds wonderful. Is access to Alamogordo very difficult from there, just in case one needs to go to the 'big city'? I suppose you have to go up through Cloudcroft to stay on pavement. It doesn't appear that there is any easy way to get to El Paso from there (although I might not want to).

I hope Timberon doesn't get too popular! Otherwise it will turn into what I want to get away from.

Catman,
Alamo is about1 1/2 hrs drive, 70 miles of paved road, but very curvy so you can't go that fast. El Paso Just add another hr+ on the trip.
I would not worry about Timberon getting crowded. 9,000 acres of "town" and about 340 residents. Summer there are a few more, but nothing you can't handle. Let us know when you are planning on the visit.
Jane

Thanks, Jane. I'll let you know when I'll be out there. I tentatively plan for September. I looked at Timberon on Google Earth and did notice that the homes aren't jammed together on tiny lots, which suits me fine.

Catman,
We are in the process of closing on a house there right now and it is pretty isolated but sooooo nice and peaceful.
My boyfriend has a motorcycle also and is concerned what it would be like on a gravel road. We will be a couple miles off the paved road. He is a good rider but wondering how his bike will be on the gravel. I heard the thing to do in Timberon (From Jane) is to get an atv.
Do you ever go to the bike rallys in Ruidoso?
Peace,
Cheryl

Catman, Some of the lots are close together, but not that much building on them. Most lots are 1/2 acre or more. Cheryl, Nan and I live in the same area of the town. So that will be fun.

Cheryl as for the bike, your BF will just have to take it slow and easy till he knows the roads. But the paved road into timberon is so pretty and I love seeing the turkeys, elk and cattle on the trip in. And during the summer you will have to watch out for cattle on the road, its free range on parts of the trip.
Come up and enjoy Timberon.
Jane

I know I am causing thread drift by changing the topic here, but I LOVE to look at New Mexico on Google Earth... I type in the name of a town, and suddenly I am flying over the mountains to the town. I guess I will go to Timberon tonight.

Back to the topic....

Towanda, while you're flying over Timberon, check out Sunspot NM (it's near Timberon) - you can see the Solar Observatory buildings.
(I love playing in Google Earth too )

I heard from Jeremy that Nan and family made it in to Timberon today. Trip took a little longer than they thought.
I am anxious to meet her, which should be on Friday. Its going to be a busy week-end in Timberon,
Jane
