I am thinking of driving my son from basicaly Dallas to Socorro New Mexico as he has been invited to an open house at New Mexico Tech. I was looking for advice from any New Mexico members on the potential weather there. I am not sure what the elevation is so do not know the potential risk of any mountain snow. I want to drive the quad but would do it in the Avalon if I have to. We would be there the weekend of 11/06/10. I hope it is early enough in the fall to avoid any issues we would be driving out 380 the whole way.
