Let us know when you're willing to come down and we'll set something up for you.
People call or e-mail us and we usually set up some runs depending on how long they're here for.

Living in Cruces, I do not know where everybody is staying. I do know the Best Western on Ave. de Mesilla has been popular in the past. There is also another hotel right next to it.

That will give you about the closest you can get to the fairgrounds, and it is virtually right off the freeway.

Some others have also stayed at what is now called "Hotel Encanto" but location isnt the best for Chile Challenge. Also there is a Ramada right off the freeway on Univeristy Ave and Valley Drive.

Hope that helps.

thanks, thats what I was looking for just a general idea of better locations. Is there trailer parking, or do we drive to the trails? Probably be pulling a 34 foot GN with two vehicles on it.


one more thing...the application asks for plate number, and insurance info. My truck has plates, but the other buggy has an OHV sticker and is insured, is that OK or must it have plates?

I "think" there is plenty of parking at all the hotels for the trailer... might ask them when you make reservations. They all should know about the Chile Challenge and the need for trailer space. Depending on what trails you run, and how "street legal" your rigs are, you can drive to the trail, but there is also trailer parking (read PLENTY of parking) right at the trails.

I am not currently affiliated with LC4WDC, been out of country for 9months. Not exactly sure on the plate issue based on that. I think in the past they had you put your tow rig plate, if you were towing to the trails. Maybe Jeephreak can comment on that some more.

Any idea what trails, or even classes of trails you are looking at? Extreme's will be filling up fast!

To answer your question I am processing all your registrations as fast as I can input them. As far as the plate question is concerened we need either your plate number or your OHV sticker number because this year we need to prove to the BLM that all the vehicles are insured and at least legal in some way. Also, please be sure that if you do not have plates that you do not drive your vehicle on the roads if at all possible as they are enforcing that law heavily this year. We are also going to send out confirmation cards to all those who are registered before February 4. If you do not receive a card you will need to confirm your registration at the Registration Desk on site.
One thing that is different this year is that we will be performing a tech inspection as part of the BLM required washdown this year. Thanks!!

sent everything in a few weeks ago, should we be getting confirmation in the mail beforehand, or just show up? I know the checks went through, and this is my first one

love to know all is confirmed before the 650 mile drive

(I know you're working hard, not trying to pressure, just ask )
