    Ya, so I’ve heard lol

    Also heard there will be folks offering up spaces that morning, so I’m not too concerned. Worst case, I’ve got the right gear to camp without issue

    Unless you’re going to make a habit of camping on the bike, no point in spending a bunch of money on a tent. Especially if many of the places are going to be indoors. Pretty much any tent is going to get you through the week. Then if you decide you like it, you can take the experience you gained and decide what features you need.

    And do yourself a favor, get a 2 person tent. I’m all for packing small, but I also like to be able to turn over and sit up. If you’re getting a 1 person, you may as well just get a bivvy sack lol

    Also, if you’re going to spend some cash, make it on your sleeping pad. Nothing will make or break a night of sleep quicker than a good/bad pad.

    Thanks Steve! Great info!

    Thankfully I’m used to “camping” in Iron Butt Motels (Sleeping on a picnic table at a rest stop) so I can sleep pretty much anywhere.

    Looking at rooms in Angel Fire now. Prices aren’t too bad and they have a pretty liberal cancellation policy, so I think I’ll book a couple while I flush out my plan.

    Based on your info, I will likely plan on camping the rest of the trip. THANKS!

    Any stops you would NOT recommend camping? Looks like the NM stop is one, given the dicey weather

    FNG here, taking the central route ALL THE WAY! Will be jumping on the camp and get a room every couple nights bandwagon. Experienced motorcycle traveler/camper.

    Good to know some places are inside and you can just throw out your bed roll.

    Look forward to riding with y’all!
