Motor Mountain USA – Off-Road on Route 66 in New Mexico [Video]


What is the highest drivable road in New Mexico available to the public? The Motor Mountain USA (# MMUSA or #MotorMountainUSA) epic road trip is about the adventure and learning the highest points across the United States, and New Mexico is second on the list.

Motor Mountain USA is a celebration of all things American and the road less traveled.  Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme are driving a 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Hard Rock across the country to visit the 50 highest drivable mountain tops in all 50 states. Along the way they will visit locations off the beaten path and the American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s top tourist destinations.

This is trip is also about involving you in the adventure. This is why TFLcar has commissioned 50 commemorative silver belt buckles, one for each state. We will leave a belt buckle somewhere in the state and will tell the coordinates, so that you can find it. The first person to find it, keeps it. The only requirement is – you need to send us a picture of you with the belt buckle. You can tweet to us @TFLcar, Facebook us at TFLcar, use the #MMUSA, or #MotorMountainUSA hashtag, email, or all of the above. One hint for the New Mexico belt buckle location – it’s a part of an old route.
