For more than two centuries the camino real was New Mexico’s principal line of communication with the centers of government and commerce in Mexico, and subsequently, with Spain. Everything New Mexicans needed and could not produce locally had to be transported over this vital link to the outside world. This presentation will review how the caravans were organized, what goods were transported to and from New Mexico and how this famous route was described in the years just before the railroad arrived (which included descriptions of Los Lunas and Belen in 1876).


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
