RE: best non interstate route from Cottonwood to Albuquerque

You can go through Show Low or up through Gallup. Just put Albu in your google maps destination and Cottonwood as the origin. Then go to options and click on avoid Hiways. On the map Google puts you through to I-40 near Grants but if you stick with US 60 from Quemado you will wind up on I-25 in Socorro and be able to use old US 85 now NM 408 north to San Acacia then on I-25 to US 60 (exit 175) and then back on old 85 (NM116 and 314 after Belen) to Bosque Farms and Albu. The Google route up north of I-40 is reservation mostly and it is closed now so stick with the routes south of 40 or along the frontage roads of 40. Lots to see from the Very Large Array on 60, to El Malpais off of I-40, Grants is a bit of '50 s route 66 and reservation pueblos.

RE: Multiple blowouts in short time

Summer time ST tires blowout. ST tires cannot handle heat. Go LT and drive without blowouts summer and winter--as long as the pressure is right ;)

RE: Hwy 84 in New Mexico from I-40 to I-25

RE: Rewiring the brakes

The gauge of the wire for brakes is important. Thicker is better. At least the same gauge or thicker than original.

RE: routee from Flagstaff, az to cotter, ark though Forests

Not a whole lot of forest but Kayenta, Farmington, Chama, Taos, Eagles Nest, and east on 412 to Cotter. The "forest" will be mostly Juniper and Pinion from Farmington to Chama, then you have real forest to Tres Piedras and from Taos to Cimarron. From Cimarron to OK it is grassland, you pass through some of the Rita Blanca National Grasslands around the NM/TX/OK border area. BTW My folks were living in Cotter while my Dad worked on Bull Shoals day. His ashes are scattered in the White River under the Cotter to Flippin Bridge.

RE: Truck stops and RVs

Some of the TA truck stops have dump stations and my visa gives me 5% back on each dollar spent so for $2.5 fuel I get a 12 cent discount regardless of the brand. The cash discount at most truck stops will also save you a few cents.

RE: Vernal UT to Lake City CO.

If you go to google maps and click on the junction of 26 with US50 and with 149 at the south end, you can see it is a dirt road.

RE: Route 64 New Mexico

US 64 is a great scenic drive. From Cimarron it is a little slow and twisty up to Eagles Nest following the river, but is a good road. The next twisty, slow part is from Angle Fire down to Taos but again a good scenic road. From Taos to Tres Pedres it is relatively flat and mostly straight. From Tres Pedres to Chama it is a great scenic drive with long curves and some straight driving through valleys and over ridges. From Chama over to Shiprock it gets into dryer high desert mesa lands and follows valleys through the reservations. Still a good road. There are some open range areas on the reservations so watch for cattle, horses, goats, etc. and slow vehicles on blind curves and dips.

RE: Route from NY to NM

I am from NM and was stationed for 4 yrs near Baltimore. Basically I had a northern route and a southern route I used quarterly to get home. I-70/25 and I-40/81 both had attractions and negatives but very little difference in time. The I-40/81 route is a little more rural in the east but both routes have big cities and long stretches without any towns. Attractions are different for every one and in those days I was all for honky tonks. Today I look for fishing spots. I still enjoy hooking up and I was always an advocate for catch and release. Lots of good angling in Arkansas and Tennessee. Had a few good catches in St Louis, Indianapolis, and Columbus too. :)

RE: Caballo, NM----Silver City,Nm

Today ICY and always UP/Down & Twisty. A great motorcycle road but not much fun even in a sedan. If anyone is prone to car sickness this road will get them. There are a couople of 12'8" one lane bridges 5 and 7 miles west of Hillboro. Current conditions are icy. Check with NM DOT before travel https://nmroads.com/mapIndex.html?
