That's not so bad. New York city and New Jersey are sending their human waste (turds) to Alabama and Colorado for disposal via railroad and have for years.
Little towns like Hobbs and Carlsbad will do anything for money for officials to spend.

WIPP made Carlsbad the suppository town of the USA. If you want to stick something up the citizens azz, Carlsbad doesn't care. Lol.
When the town of Carlsbad is swallowed by oilfield drilling under the town in a few years no one will care. After all it's a suppository town. Lol.

Well then, it is safe to assume from your opinion that C'bad is not the place to consider when making the decision to move out West. Where would one look to escape environmental hazards, clean water to drink, medical care that is affordable and state of the art, low violence rate, and affordable tax base?

Carlsbad is a nuclear weapon dump. The city is squandering their fresh water source away. The state government of New Mexico can't believe oil companies drill in Carlsbad's main fresh water source. One bad casing leak may end the water source. One more radiation leak may contaminate this area. Of course it will never happen here. Just ask the federal government. They never lie.

Very helpful, thank you. If I asked the feds anything at all, I would be accused of talking to myself more than likely, but I do agree with you. No lie.

I located a nice home in Roswell just now near a golf course at that! Not far from wildlife preserve as well. Thank you again. This will be one of my stops during my travels if the home is still available. I still have some virtual exploring to do in AZ as well, as it gets me a bit closer to Cali.

Roswell has good medical and lots of restaurants.
On, I believe 19th street are 3 gated mobile home parks for over 55. They are nice and they take care of yard work. Reasonable prices. They are near medical and restaurants.
Another is on University I think is backed up to nice park.
These are all nice and safe. Check them out.
Don't buy anything from coming into city from Carlsbad to 2nd street in Roswell. Some gang activity on south side of Roswell.
I believe you will like all the shopping there also.

You are only a one hour drive to Ruidoso from Roswell.
A lot to do in Ruidoso. You will enjoy.

How funny! I just read this and have to tell you I have chosen a beautiful home with a picturesque view in Ruidoso! Thank you so much for all of these leads you have given me! If the property is still available when I travel through the area next month then I will get a better perspective on the home, as well as the area. I am looking forward to it. Thanks again!

Huh? Do I remind you of someone? If that is the case, the answer is No, that is not my name. Again, Tinman will vouch for me. I trust him with my identity and my life.

Just a word of warning, don't fly into Ruidoso. Most flights are single engine or 2 engine aircraft. Tricky wind currents near the airport and have been responsible for a lot of deaths from flying in. Stay and dine at the Inn of The Gods operated by Apache tribe. Great trout fishing there. Casino, skeet shooting range, trap range and other. All on reservation. Interesting.

Nogal, a small community of artists is about 30 minutes out of Ruidoso. Interesting.
Prices in Ruidoso and Cloudcroft range from $200,000 to whatever, millions of dollars for housing.

There was one home in particular in Cloudcroft that I really liked, but it is a bit larger than what I initially planned on. It is located on Maple Dr. not a bad price and has only been on the market for 3 days, I think it stated.

Ever spent a winter up there? Well over 8,000 feet. Most people move up there and sell within 2 years. The Western bar and cafe will be your hangout.

Yes I used to have a home in Ruidoso. Loved it. Winter nights are cold but days are not bad. A lot of people live there and stay there. Had to move because of wife's health.
Try before you buy. Rent. You sound like a sorehead. We used to go to El Paso and other places close to visit while living there. Everything is open all winter. Don't listen to negative voices. Rent for several months. Deer, elk, and all kinds of wildlife. Cloudcroft is somewhat isolated and Ruidoso is not.
