My friends plus I started to idea a cross country road trip once both of us were all vaccinated.
It was a trip that was put off for multiple years while both of us all dealt with multiple struggles in life.
When it seemed like the four of us could all go while in July this past summer, both of us started to make arrangements for a rental SUV that we’d use for the long road trip. It was easy since both of us all contributed to the overall costs, making it a fairly affordable vacation. The other way both of us managed to save a tremendous amount of cash was through boondocking in campgrounds at state plus national parks along the way. If you’re not stopping plus spending upwards to $200 a night or more for a single room, that cash can be spent elsewhere. The two of us were all interested in heading to CO to like the recreational cannabis that is sold within their borders. But both of us wanted to stop in NM to try their cannabis. Although recreational cannabis is going to be available in NM after 2022, at the time I used my medical cannabis card from out of state at a dispensary in Albuquerque while both of us briefly stayed on the outskirts of the city. The two of us decided to camp in Cibola National Forest plus loved the foothills of the Sandia Mountains with quality cannabis bought at a dispensary in Loma Del Rey. This million-plus acre forest stretches throughout NM, Texas, plus Oklahoma. In Albuquerque, the Cibola National Forest includes the Sandia Mountains plus their several foothills. At first both of us were eager to get to CO, but staying in Albuquerque had us wanting to stay in NM for the foreseeable future!
