Hello everyone, I am new to this board and I think that this will be a great tool in aiding my current road-trip. Well I have been on the road for about 2 weeks from Pittsburgh and am currently staying in Houston. The reason I am posting is that I am very interested in knowing some great off-beat places to see,stay,camp or explore on my journey through the southwest. I will be celebrating the 4th of July in Austin and my next stop will be Carlsbad, Nm. I plan on staying in El Paso after Carlsbad and the farthest north I will be traveling untill San Diego is Phoenix. I am up for all suggestions, as I have no time schedule. I am a roughneck traveler where I have been staying on couches of locals, hostels, camping, etc. so keep that in mind. I'd love to stop by ghostowns, and whatever else is exciting and interesting on my route. All suggestions are appreciated!!!! Thank You!
