I haven't been here in 20+ years, curious about camping/squatting close to town in Taos. I know the Mesa is wide open, just wanting to explore town a little. Any stories, suggestions?
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I don't know what you mean by 'close,' but there's a beautiful, tranquil, free campground just past arroyo seco, in the opening of the ski valley. It's the first campground on the right and I thiiiink it's called lower hondo. It's a short hitch to town, or you could even walk, if you're a beast. You could *definitely* walk into seco. There are usually a few people camping out there, and I've had luck just hitching rides with my neighbors, but also, I've had no trouble being left entirely alone. If you go, kiss it for me! I miss that place so much.

    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.
