Ep. 225: On the Trail of Billy The Kid | New Mexico RV travel camping Lincoln Ruidoso

Avatar admin | October 20, 2021

There's actually a coincidental connection between this episode of Grand Adventure and our most recent travel episode from Silver City, New Mexico https://youtu.be/HkbYCBrw4i8, but it was here in Lincoln County that famed western outlaw Billy The Kid's life of crime blossomed, and suddenly ended with his reported death at the hands of the famed Sheriff Pat Garrett at the young age of 21. In this episode, while camping in Ruidoso (and being visited in camp by a herd of wild horses) we're going to follow in Billy's footsteps, visiting the scene of some of his most memorable moments in the quaint western town of Lincoln, including his participation in the Lincoln County War with the Regulators and jail break from the courthouse, as well as historic Fort Stanton and elsewhere in Lincoln County, New Mexico. While in the region we'll also get to meet Smokey Bear in person, hike in the Sierra Blanca Mountains to Monjeau Lookout, and marvel at the beauty of St. Joseph Apache Mission in Mescalero.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.

We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
