Generally, the scenery, the food, and the history. Other than that there are a shit load of sketchy places in NM. The hitching is hard, and the yards are even harder.

But I like the state. Never been to the place you mention. I cant stress the scenery and ability ot get away though

Its very beautiful in northern part. A well known place for travellers to settle, like buying a cheap piece of desert and living on it. Taos Mesa is kinda like a permanent slabs. I live in taos now, so if anything feel free to come say hello

Shit tons of mountain town sax.
Huh? Mountain town saxophone? Mountain town sex? Both sound potentially scary.

NM is pretty, and has many old hippies, Indians, and Mexicans, and excellent Mexican food.

i had very good luck hitching there in May, and a Navajo dude who picked me up literally forced me to take a $10 bill from him. If you have alcohol on the reservations, the tribal cops will confiscate.

As to what @Coywolf said, i think there are lots of sketchy ppl in most places there, mostly cholo gangster dudes, tweaker rednecks and cops, but i had no trouble avoiding all 3.

Actually hung with 3 cholo gangsters and their Caucasian disciple, all four fresh out of prison, on the bus into NM from Texas, and smoked weed with them (theirs and mine) at an endless bus layover.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
