I have lived in Southern New Mexico my whole life and my husband and I might be moving summer 2013. I am interested in finding out what moving up there is like. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats, one vehicle, and will probably take a small uhaul trailer. I have done some searching online but have come up with minimal information. Is it easier to drive the entire way or go on a ferry? Any extra advice for a desert country girl?
