August 1 – August 10
The Butauds and Manns drove to Ruidoso NM on August 22, 2016 for a mini-vacation and “exploratory visit” to see for ourselves what we might find “to like or not like” about Ruidoso. We were there Monday through Wednesday and found it not to be as touristy as we were led to believe. Weekends are a different matter as race days are Friday through Sunday.
On Wednesday morning, after visiting 10 or 12 parks on Tuesday, we booked a reservation for three sites (Baggs also wanted a site) for the first ten days in August. We figure ten days will give us enough time to decide if we want to book the following year for a longer period or whether this will be a onetime adventure – or, just a stopover on the way to Chama. Rest of the day was spent having lunch at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, checking out the golf course, as Don and Richard are avid golfers, identifying things to see and do on our next visit and visiting the casinos.
Anyone interested in joining our “2017 Ruidoso Evaluation” is welcome. Call the park (RV Resort of Ruidoso) at 575-257-2600 and reserve a site. Call soon because sites are at a premium during August.
