  1. Catching up here... US Hwy 60 from Vaughn, NM, to I-25 was a piece of cake. Road surface was good the entire stretch, light traffic, and good shoulders. Thanks to those that offered to share their experience. Not much there so any future travelers... be sure to gas up before driving the stretch.
  2. Thanks for the affirmation, Rob.
  3. We travel thru El Paso a couple times a year: Going East on I-10, get off at Anthony Hwy 404. Continue east to Hwy 213 - turn south there... continue on traveling south to Hwy 375. Turn east on Hwy 375 there, following it south & east until it loops around to join I-10. These are good roads, negligible grades,
  4. Joel, THANKS for pointing out the 'color' changes in 1309. I just dusted off my laptop for Holiday toad travels back to Texas/Pennsylvania/Michigan... and in catching up on updates I installed 1309 - and then saw your comment on utilizing colors in the cursor... and it works wonders for 'aging eyes'. I am even trying out some of the color Filters to change the overall background of windows... Good stuff.
  5. Thanks, podwerkz, appreciate the Mountainaire info... and the heads-up on Encino - US60. I think there is a similar turn like that close to Vaughn, where US54 heads South. We missed it once... We will be going this route next month, so this is quite helpful. Thanks again! Jim
  6. Thanks, 2gypsies... and JRP... for the information & experience sharing. I think we will give it a try in a few weeks. We have always taken US-54 in the past (Alamogordo), but it has some rough areas, and congestion. Thanks again, Jim
  7. Doing a little trip planning for this Fall... we are looking at traveling on US Highway 60 from Vaughn NM, to Interstate 25. This looks pretty desolate on google maps. Has anyone ever driven this stretch before and be willing to share their experience? Good? Bad? In-between? Thanks, Jim
  8. Thanks for the update, Ellaine. Now we know for sure.
  9. Followup: Drove by Spotted Bull Eatery today (Saturday, May 11,2019, 4:00 PM), traveling eastbound on I-10. The adjacent parking lot (listed in Days End Directory) had 5 tractor-trailer rigs parked... but no cars parked in front of the Restaurant... and a big sign on the front entry door (visible from Highway but not readable). By all appearances I think Spotted Bull Eatery is closed for business... but the parking lot is still being used.
  10. Thanks, folks, for trying to help with this question. Appreciation to all! It's not a major issue, all things considered, so I think I will skip Vail this year, and just keep going on to Benson. I know we have options there for overnight boondocking, including an SKP park. If I should come across any further information to update this question, I will update this post... as well as the Days End Directory. Again, Thank You!
  11. Thanks, Kirk. Mystified as to why no response to phone calls & emails... I'll keep checking... great overnight boondocking place with good food.
  12. Will be traveling thru the Tucson area soon... and over the years we have boondocked at Vail Steakhouse... lately sold, and renamed "Spotted Bull Eatery" However, in trying to contact them I have had zero response to emails and phone calls. AZ, VAIL: Spotted Bull Eatery, huge pkg lot. No facilities. Free. Owners welcome O/N. I-10 x279, go N, TR on frontage rd, follow sign to restaurant. Easy turnaround. Truckers also use Does anyone know if they perhaps have closed down? Thanks, Jim
  13. Done, Kirk. Results will be interesting. Thanks!
