Just wondered who else lived in my beutiful unpopulated Desert state. I live in Santa Fe which is known for fine art, 350/days of sunshine per year. and Cholla Cacti.

Ahh...so that's the two who live there...

Actually, I've been to Roswell, the Four Corners area and Albuquerque. It was fun, I'd try going back with maybe a little more time on my hands. I got hassled by the Border Patrol near Las Cruces, that was an interesting experience.

I stayed in ABQ for 2 weeks. It was the most miserable trip ever. I could not wait to get home. If I had been there for pleasure, I am sure I would have enjoyed it, but it was for work.

My entire family is from the southern part of the state. My mom & dad went to school, met and got married in Silver City. I was born in Kingman, AZ, but we moved back to Silver when I was three. My Dad & Grandad are still there and I get back every couple of years. I also spent some time in the northern part of the state. For awhile my dad had a ranch just over the CO border, and Farmington was the nearest town of any size.

I attended UNM (main campus in Albuquerque) for a semester. It was an incredible experience considering that I'd never before been west of the Mississippi.

Some friends took me up to the Fiestas to get a taste of New Mexico's culture - and that included the Burning of Zozobra. Pretty much a "frying pan into the fire" experience for a newcomer! I also got to take a weekend trip down to Las Cruces for our football game against NMSU (I was in the marching band) and a day trip across eastern New Mexico to Lubbock for the Texas Tech game... So I have some idea of the variations in New Mexico geography.

Funny thing is, when I got back to Delaware, everyone either thought I had been in Arizona or in Mexico, the nation. Sheesh.  sarcastic 

It was a fun time, learning a lot of new things, made lots of friends with Hispanic classmates who dcompletely reshaped my idea of Hispanic culture and variation. My Zia roommate also taught me a lot about native culture, just by observing her; also on one evening when we watched a PBS documentary on Isleta together and she tore it apart! (Not the Isleta, rather the perspective and information of the documentary.) Pretty amazing stuff.

I've been to NM many times.... I love it. I would like to live there. And for 'pure' skiing, Taos Ski Valley is hard to beat. I like ABQ as a city, and the wilderness desert and sage brush areas of the state are amazing. Santa Fe is a bit too arty for me, but I can see its appeal for many. Viva La Tierra de Encanto.

I almost live there. I live down in Texas, very close to the southeastern corner of New Mexico where it sticks into TX. I can drive to NM in just a few minutes.

Although I live in Florida, I consider the 505 to be my home.

Born in Albuquerque and lived there until college. Moved to Florida for college, and am still there for work. But I would love to get back to New Mexico. I miss the desert, I miss the mountains, I miss the culture, and a really miss green chile.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

Yep, dealt with it all my life. But I'm just as bad, only in reverse. Every time I see a thread about a new Mexican carrier, my immediate thought is, "Somebody is starting service out of ABQ?" Big grin

Glad to know I'm not the only one that thinks that.  relieved 

Some of the things people say whey you tell them you are from New Mexico are truly idiotic. For example:

Wow, you speak English really well!!!

That's next to California, right?

Is it safe to drink the water there?

Do I need a passport to visit New Mexico?

You are aware that the UN classifies that as torture, don't you?  Big grin

A regular feature of New Mexico Magazine is "One of our Fifty is Missing." As you probably guessed, it includes stories, always humorous, about peoples incounters with the "geographically challenged."

In this month's issue, a retired couple were relocating to NM and telephoned the Social Security Administration to have thier SSI checks sent to thier new bank. The operator informed them that thier request could not be fulfilled, as SSA does not deposit money in foreign banks.  gnasher  After several attempts at trying to educate the operator as to our status as a state, the retiree gave up in frustration. She did, however, recieve a phone call the next day from SSA informing her that her request would be fulfulled. So at least somebody in SSA nows how to read a map.

Slightly off topic, but back in the early 80s I once had a DC staffer call me to ask what currency we used in Alaska, her boss (a congressman) was coming to visit the state.  Wink

Send me a bag or 20! The only way to get decent enchilada sauce up here is to make it yourself. We usually have my granddad send us a box to last us through the year.

I grew up in New Mexico - primarily in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but lived for short times in Farmington and Artesia (south of Roswell). I've lived in Boston for 17 years now, but I miss fresh green chili terribly.

There's a reason the car license plates say "New Mexico USA" on them.

Green chilies are addictive! Funny the first time I was asked "green or red" was at the village inn on juan tabo in ABQ. Now when I go out there a case of hatch green comes home with me, those little things give you a head buzz! NM is one of my fav spots, sandia, santa fe ski area,taos and red river to name a few. Great time is when everybody is roasting green chilies, good stuff.

I'd never noticed that until a few years ago when one of my college roommates pointed it out.

Nothing beats the smell of freshly roasted green chile. Making me drool just thinking about it.

Your post also reminded me of the trouble New Mexicans had trying to get tickets to the Atlanta Olympics. The office in Atlanta wouldn't sell tickets to people in New Mexico, because they though it was part of Mexico. They were telling everyone to call up the office in Mexico City to get tickets.

Yeah, unless of course, you manage to spot a tornado from twenty miles away, and enjoy being a weather junkie for all of 2 minutes out of twelve hours in the entire drive.
Oh yeah, we also had to drive through an amazing thunderstorm on our way back over the Sandias... At one point lightning struck very close to our bus, and everyone screamed because the entire bus lit up like it was daytime... I remember it was like there was nothing but white outside the windows for that brief moment.

Ahhh chilis. I got caught twice before I learned that if salt is the essential ingredient in the midwest, chili or jalepeno are in New Mexico. The first time was at the band's opening banquet, and I bit into a piece of cheese (which I thought was dill cheese, never again) and ended up sputtering for the rest of our director's remarks. I had to go home sick from marching drills in the afternoon because I had such a violent reaction to my first encounter with jalapeno. Then a few weeks later I saw hamburger macaroni casserole the dining hall and having grown up with that as a family favorite, I heaped it on my plate only to have my mouth catch fire when I sat down to eat. After that I learned to assume that if something green was in it, beware of chili or jalapeno - and even if there wasn't anything visible, take a small bite first!

I have so many fond memories...  Big grin
