Albuquerque, New Mexico – Breaking Bad, Old Town, Nuclear Energy and Sandia Peak

November 7, 2019


– [Robert] In today’s video, we are going to visit Walter White, and Los Pollos Hermanos as we explore Albuquerque, New Mexico. Also, the National Museum of
Nuclear Science and History and the Sandia Peak Tramway. That and more coming up next. ♪ I’m riding, riding, riding ♪ ♪ Riding with my RV ♪ ♪ My RV ♪ ♪ Wherever I want to be ♪ ♪ Because I’m free in my RV, yeah ♪ – Well, hopefully, today
we’ve done a little better planning than yesterday
and the first thing I’m going to go to the
Old Albuquerque area, maybe have some breakfast, and then we’re gonna do
some Breaking Bad locations, and then we’ll see. (upbeat guitar music) Here we are, Old Albuquerque. Let’s find parking. Well, once again, it’s dead
here early in the morning, so we’ll go back later. Although I was getting kind
of hungry but I can wait. So I stumbled upon the
Visitor’s Information Center. What a concept, right? And I spoke to the very
knowledgeable, very nice lady there, and apparently nothing
opens here in downtown, or Old Town, rather. – [GPS Voice] Take the next right on to South Plaza Street Northwest, then turn left onto Rio
Grande Boulevard Northwest. – ‘Til like 10 or 11 a.m. so okay, that’s that, so what I’m going to do now
in the morning, I’m going to. – [GPS Voice] Turn left onto
Rio Grande Boulevard Northwest, then turn right onto
Central Avenue Northwest. – If she lets me talk I’m going to do the Breaking Bad locations. Another one that is really far away in the middle of the desert, because it’s like 40 minute drive and I know 40 minute drive usually turns into an hour, two hours, but I’m going to go to like Los Pollos Hermanos, the car wash, Walter White’s house, and then I’m gonna come back here to the restaurant that I was going to come to anyways, which is this church. – [GPS Voice] Take the next right onto Central Avenue Northwest, Route 66. – And she recommended that, yeah, this is the oldest restaurant in town. So I’m gonna have an earl
lunch there probably. – [GPS Voice] Continue on
Central Avenue Northwest for one mile. – Around 11-ish, and then
there’s a post office, I have to mail a sticker to England. So I’m going to mail it from
there and then we’ll see, there’s so much to do. There’s the Nuclear Energy Museum, there’s, of course, the
Sandia Peak Tramway, there’s Nob Hill, although
she says that Nob Hill is under construction so it may not be the greatest experience, so
we’ll take it from there. (upbeat guitar music) By the way, she also had a map of all the Breaking Bad locations
and I was even considering taking a tour, but you know, I made myself a little bit of a tour here. I saved some of the locations in the, in Google Maps and I’m just
going to, you know, explore. Ooh, by the way, if you’re
not really into Breaking Bad, feel free to skip ahead
about three minutes or so, and we’ll continue exploring
the rest of Albuquerque after that. Here we are at the infamous
location of Los Pollos Hermanos, which is Twisters Burger
and Burritos fast food chain here in New Mexico and Colorado. Let’s go inside. I’m not gonna eat, I just want to see it. Of course, they have
a Pollos Hermanos sign right by the entrance. Hi, good morning. Let’s make sure that we don’t
have any GPS trackers here. All clear. We’ll be on our way. We continue on our Breaking
Bad locations tour. (upbeat guitar music) I know, old Kia is kind of
filthy and in a bad need of a car wash, but that’s
not why we’re here. This is the car wash from the TV series. I was tempted to do a car wash, you know, patronize the building, the business but, but let’s continue towards
Walter White’s house. How about that? (upbeat guitar music) Hmm, I guess they got
the same idea as I did, or maybe they’re cooking
meth in there, either or. Ah, yeah, the new owners
have put up fences and cones. I don’t think they are
thrilled with the idea of having a famous house. They have a sign that says take your pictures from across
the street, do not disturb. I won’t disturb them. I just want to throw a pizza on that roof. Leaving. Let’s find another, oh by the way, the guys in the RV, I think they were taking
pictures of the wrong house. Okay, let’s go. Actually, if I owned that
house, I would decorate it just like in the TV
series and offer tours. But then I guess I would
have to license the rights. It might not be worth it. Anyways, I’m not going to
spend my whole morning on this, so last but not least is one
of my favorite locations, Hank and Marie’s house. You know, the cop brother-in-law? And it is located on the
foothills of the Sandia Mountains in the very nice Glenwood
Hills neighborhood. That’s the one. Down the hill we go. By the way, there was a trail head at
the end of this street. Maybe we can do it some other time. The next time we come
to Albuquerque for sure. So the idea now, I’m
going to take a historic Route 66 into town. I don’t know how long
that’s going to take, but sounds sensible and then
we’re gonna have breakfast at the Old Town. (upbeat guitar music) This here is Central
Avenue, which became part of Historical Route 66 back in 1937 when the road came through here. And we’re going to be approaching
here a neighborhood called The Nob Hill, which is
supposed to be very lively with this eclectic mix of
locally owned businesses. (upbeat guitar music) Well, might as well make it
all the way to downtown, right? This here is the Civic Plaza, and apparently they do
concerts and special events and when it is not in use,
it is a great spot for the homeless to charge their phones, I hear. What does this building remind of you? It’s like the InterAmerican Plaza in Miami. We are back by Old Town. Let’s check out Old Town
here in Albuquerque. We’re back here. This place is supposed to
be right behind the church. Now I am really getting hungry, so let’s go to that Church Street Cafe to have an early lunch. Yeah, I think that’s it over there. – [Woman] Hi, how are you? – Here we are. Church Street Cafe. I start with a coffee because I thought it was going
to be breakfast, actually. This is apparently the
oldest house in Albuquerque. Then I changed my mind to a local IPA because you know what? It is almost noon. This is the combination platter, some bread and everything. Tamale and enchilada and I forgot. I think it’s a chiles rellenos. That is fantastic. A bit pricey, but it was really good. And, well, you know, you
are in a historic building after all. Wow, that was a very, very good meal. Check it out. (guitar music) – Bye bye. – Bye. Well that was very nice. By far, the best meal
I’ve had in New Mexico, so I’m very pleased. And it supposedly the oldest
private residence here in the city, as I mentioned. Owned until 1991 by the same family. (upbeat guitar music) Alright, let’s continue exploring Old Town a little bit here. All these shops here in the back. This little alley here. I am back by the Old Town Plaza and the San Felipe de Neri Church. Here’s the official historic marker. And we have these cannons. And Native American crafts. Let’s check out the church. 1793. This here church is the oldest
building in the whole city, and the only building here in
Old Town proven to date back to the Spanish Colonial era, although it did go through some
remodeling after 1817, like the bell towers and
the pitched roof and the interior decorations, those are newer. (whimsical music) Well, I think we’ve seen
enough here for today, so I’m just going to slowly
walk back to the car, admiring all this adobe
style architecture, the chili peppers ever-present everywhere. (drumming music) Here’s another restaurant I was
considering for lunch today, although I think I made the right choice. Here’s the main entrance
to the Old Town area. So it’s Don Francisco Cuervo Y Valdes, founder of Albuquerque, April 23rd, 1706. The plan is we’re going to
go see some nuclear weapons. Nuclear, or nu-cu-lar, how do you say it? Anyways. Saying goodbye to old, I don’t know where I am, Albuquerque. – [GPS Voice] Take the
next left onto San Felipe Street Northwest. – Thank you. Check it out, Old Town. – [GPS Voice] In 300 feet, turn left onto Mountain Road Northwest. – See the church? Yeah. We are going to transition here from colonial Spanish
history and old Mexico to a much more recent
time period, the Cold War. Our next destination is The National Museum of
Nuclear Science and History, which I am really looking
forward to because I grew up during the Cold War, and I
was stuck on the other side of the Iron Curtain, kind of. So it is a very interesting historical period for me, personally. Here we are. Adult admission is $12. In this first section, we
learn about some of the people involved in the study of the atom, and Einstein’s letter
to President Roosevelt. World War Two, Hitler and the Holocaust. And the Nuclear Threat. And then we get to see some
artifacts from the era, from the different countries involved. The Manhattan Project
that involved the design, assembly and testing of
the first atomic bomb in nearby Los Alamos, very
close to here, actually. Fascinating stuff. (upbeat music) Here’s a replica of Fat
Man, which was the bomb detonated over the city
of Nagasaki, Japan. This flag flew at the site
of the first atomic test. The limo that transported the scientists of the Manhattan Project. Gadget, the first atomic
device ever tested. The Nagasaki aftermath. The Soviet section, perhaps? Ever wonder what a fallout
shelter used to look like back in the sixties? Yeah. There is so much stuff here,
I could make a one hour video of the museum alone, but don’t worry, I’m not going to do that. Here’s a section about nuclear medicine. You see? It’s not all war and doom and gloom. There have been, actually,
many contributions to the advancement of medical technology. There’s another section on radiation, they even have a Geiger Counter here, measuring the radioactivity
of different materials. Electric power, and of course, a pretty substantial section
about atomic pop culture. There is, of course, a famous DeLorean, and something called a Flux Capacitor. Great Scott! Well, as I said, we
could spend hours here, but before we go, let’s step
outside into what they call the Heritage Park. As I step outside, a museum
docent, a very nice guy follows me around everywhere
and explains everything, actually, like the fact that
this F16 would be carrying a hydrogen bomb under its
wing and heat-seeking missiles and yeah. Here’s a B-29 Super Fortress, just like the one that
dropped the atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And it was from a tower like
this one that they tested The Gadget, the first nuclear bomb, at White Sands. Actually, on the next
video, we are going there. Here’s a Nike Missile. We saw one of those at the
Everglades not long ago. This, of course, is the legendary B-52. I recently had a chance to see
one of these up in the air, and all I can say is, what a sight. This thing is majestic. It is almost the size of
the whole museum building. And that’s where they kept
the hydrogen bomb, down there. This here is the B-47 Stratojet, nicknamed The Widowmaker. Wonder why? It looks to me like an
oversized fighter jet, and according to my guide,
the pilots used to say that once it was up in the air, it actually handled like one. We move on to the rockets, the intercontinental ballistic
missiles, but at this point, it’s information overload. I believe this is the Titan II, a staple during the Cold War,
always ready to be launched, pointing at the Soviet Union, of course. – [Guide] This one’s
called The Peacekeeper. – The Peacekeeper. – [Guide] This is a four stage. Special type of epoxy. – Let’s see. Kevlar. Here’s, once again, the
Titan II, which was designed so it could fit on a truck on the highway, and under most tunnels. Pretty cool. Now we go to the, to the Tramway, to the Sandia Peak. Well, yes, we are going
to do one more thing today before we turn in to the campground. And there is another one of
the top ten things to do here, the Sandia Peak Tramway. There is actually so much
more to do here, really, but I only allocated one
day on this particular trip, more like an overview of the city this is. You can bet we’ll be back
here sooner than later. We’re going north on
Tramway Boulevard here, which actually hugs
the eastern city limits and eventually will
take us to the Tramway. Hi. – [Ranger] Hi there, how are y’all today? – I’m doing great, how are ya? – [Ranger] Great, it’s a beautiful day, I’m on the mountain. – Yeah. Yeah, it’s very good. (laughing) – [Ranger] Have you been before? – No, first time. – [Ranger] Where are you from? – Miami, Florida. – [Ranger] Miami? Woo, well it’s lighter there. And lower. Been there, it’s a nice town. – Yeah, it’s good. – [Ranger] Well, two whole dollars. – It’s two whole dollars
to go over there, right? And then how much is the tram? – [Ranger] $25. – 25. – [Ranger] 20 if you’re a
senior, but I don’t think. – No, not yet, not quite yet. (laughing) – [Ranger] Just follow this road around. It just landed, you may
be able to catch it. – Alright. – [Ranger] If not, the next
will be down in 15 minutes. – Alright, perfect, thank you so much. (upbeat jazz music) Well, let’s take the Sandia Peak Tramway. (bell ringing) – [Woman] Thank you, Robert. (whistling) – [Man] Watch your step. – [Woman] Thank you, coming through. – The 50 year old tramway goes from 6500 feet above sea level all the way to 10000 feet,
along 2.7 miles of cable. As we ascend, we’re going into
the Cibola National Forest. Passing Tower One now. From here up, the Tramway was
constructed by helicopter. 5000 helicopter rides it took. – [Announcer] Mount Taylor’s Mountain, about 75 miles to the west
there, it’s about 1000 feet higher than we are, and
it is a dormant volcano. Just to give you guys an idea
of how big things really are from the Tram, on the right hand side here,
we’re passing Fish Rock and then right out back
there on top of that hill, there’s a big boulder perched on top, looks curiously like a cannon,
we’re real imaginative, we call it Cannon Rock,
it’s about the same size as this cabin, so things
on the outside of the Tram are much larger than they appear. You can see Cabezon from here,
too, if you look out to the Northwest on the horizon
out there, it looks like an outie belly button sticking
up out of the horizon. That’s the, that’s El Cabezon, that’s
the hollowed out core of an extinct volcano. (whimsical piano music) – There’s the mark from a lightning strike that looks like a face, or a skull rather. (string music) – [Announcer] At the very
tippy-tip-top of that mountain up there, there’s a little
small square granite cabin called Black Window, and
the longer you look for it, the easier it is to see. I know that sounds weird,
just totally out there, and it’s right where the
sky meets the tippy-top of that mountain up there. And that was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It was built to house
workers that worked up there a long time ago, but they don’t
use it for anything anymore. It’s just a national monument. But you all can hike there,
it’s about a three mile round trip hike from upper
terminal to Kiwanis and back. – We’ve made it to the top. Well what do you know? There is snow up here. No drones, why am I not surprised? Here’s the view looking
towards the other side, to the East. So beautiful. There is our tram car going back down. (whimsical music) There is pretty good wifi
here in upper terminal, so if you recall, I did
a live video from up here back in February. Such a commanding view. Ready to head back down. Not many people going down
now because a lot of people come up here to see the sunset. So it is coming up full and
going down nearly empty. By the way, Sandia means
watermelon in Spanish, and the mountain, at
sunset, due to its color, it kind of looks like a
sliced watermelon, I guess. Yeah, I kind of see how it could look like a sliced watermelon. I’m actually glad that the
tram is coming back down nearly empty because it is so much better to take in the views. There comes the other car. – [Woman] There must be
tons of people going up because they want to see the sunset or? – [Announcer] No, usually,
like we usually get busier at this time. Here is gonna be a swing and a miss. (laughing) – We are almost back at ground level. Let’s drive back to the campground, as the day comes to an end. Oh, by the way, did I mention
that there is a brewery right next to the campground? Yeah, I think it’s through here. Where is the brewery? And there is the brewery. That’s people in there. What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be in Key West? I am eating Buffalo Frito Pie, and an IPA, of course. Well, it is our last sunset here in the West. It’s a beautiful one. Well, for sure I am
going to miss having the Sandia Mountains in my backyard,
but the show must go on. Well, I’m about to take a
shower and I always wanted to have one of these. It’s a microfiber towel,
supposedly they dry up really, really quickly
and this was sent to me by it’s called Country Bound, and in the spirit of full disclosure I didn’t pay for it, but
I’m gonna test it out and, wow, this makes a lot of noise, huh? I’m gonna test it out
and I’ll let you know at the end how it is. Let me show you, it comes in this nice bag that could probably
reuse for something else. And thank you, we appreciate. For 25 off your next purchase visit www.countrybound.com/offer. I’m gonna put a link in the
video description to this but check it out, it’s two towels. Three, four towels. Hmm, very interesting, and it’s very thin. This is the large one
that I’m going to use. I mean, if you’re a woman
you could use it as a skirt, to go to the beach. So very nice. Squeaky clean now and let
me tell you about the towel. It’s a different drying experience than with a regular towel. There’s more of, a bit more
of a friction, you know? I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. Maybe you’re supposed to pat dry yourself, it didn’t come with
instructions, so I don’t know. But the good thing is, and
especially here in the RV that sometimes we are inside
and we hang the towel inside to dry, it dried up way
faster than a regular towel, so yeah, thumbs up to the microfiber towel by Country Bound. They give you three towels in this package and I’m gonna put a link
in the video description if you wanna get ’em. And tell you what, I think
it is time for us to put a New Mexico sticker, so I’m
gonna do that right now. Here’s my remaining
stickers here on my map. Let’s put up New Mexico
and then I’ll tell you what I intend to do here. By the way, a lot of people have asked me where I got this map. And you know, it’s the store
that we all love to hate. Camping World. I got it at the pop up
store that they usually have at the Tampa RV Show. I got it the same year that
I got my travel trailer. 2015, and, 2014 actually. And let me tell you about,
actually January 2014 we got it. Let me tell you about my
map and what I intend to do because as you can see,
I’m about halfway done with The United States, I think
I have like 25 states left exactly. So now in the fall, I’m gonna cover this whole area here. Because I’ve driven through
many of these states, but I haven’t actually been in any of those states
and my premise for this map is I either have to sleep
or do something significant in the state, and I kind
of cheated with Alabama, because all I did was
have lunch at a rest stop, but I didn’t want to have
this gaping hole here in the South. So that’s what I did and I kind of cheated and for some reason I
haven’t done much in Alabama, maybe because Alabama gave
me a bad first impression back in 1996 when I was
driving through here and on my way to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. And we just stopped at
a gas station and it was muddy and dirty or dusty or I don’t know, there was something about
it but definitely have to give Alabama a chance. Apparently on this next
trip, on my way back from New England, maybe, we’ll
have to do something there. And then, I want your suggestions about doing the rest of these states in early 2019 and what route to use because
I still have this whole area here in the middle. I have Wisconsin and Michigan up there, and then I would like to, maybe I can do the Lewis and Clark Trail, the Oregon Trail, I don’t know. Do comment below or if you
know which is the best way to tackle all these states
in a couple of months. Maybe we’ll do, yeah early 2019 because my
goal was always to do the lower 48 before I turned
48 and time’s running out. I’m about to turn 47 right now. So, let’s head south. I am leaving Albuquerque and I’ve been going back
and forth, you know, changing my plans. Originally I wanted to go
through Amarillo, Texas, to take a part of Route 66 along the way, but it doesn’t look like
that’s going to happen. Let me stop real quick, I think I forgot to close my basement. Or storage, whatever it’s called. Okay, I closed it but I didn’t lock it. Let me, I’ll be right back. Well, as I was saying,
there’s a storm coming and, a winter storm, it might even
rain here in Albuquerque so I have to head back south. I’m going to El Paso,
Texas, once again and then I’m gonna take I-10 east all the way back. The one positive thing about. – [GPS Voice] Take the next
right onto South Hill Road. – Thank you Google lady. The one positive thing about
this is that I might be able to stop for a few hours in San Antonio which will be cool because I’ve
heard it’s a very neat city. This is where I stayed, Bernalillo. ♪ Riding ♪ ♪ Riding in my RV ♪ ♪ Wherever I want to be ♪ ♪ Because I’m free in my RV ♪ ♪ Yeah I’m riding,
riding, riding, riding ♪ ♪ I’m riding in my RV ♪ ♪ My RV ♪ ♪ Wherever I want to be ♪ ♪ Because I’m free in my RV ♪ ♪ Yeah ♪ Let’s fly the drone here one more time. (upbeat music) – [Drone Voice] Landing. (beeping) – Well, yes, this is
when the drone decided to land by itself on the
other side of the highway. – [Drone Voice] Stop landing. Stop landing, stop landing. (beeping) – I was able to take
control and bring it back as fast as I could. But it was a scary moment for sure. (futuristic music) Well, this is breakfast
here at the rest area, I’m heating up some, made like
a wrap with ham and cheese with those new tortillas
I bought in New Mexico. And here we are at the rest area. I am going to head back
south towards El Paso as I make my way back to Florida. Actually, I want to make
it back by Valentine’s Day, so I must rush a little bit. But before that, we’re going
to explore the White Sands and spend a couple of hours in San Antonio so stay tuned for that. If you have enjoyed traveling with us, make sure you are subscribed

    Your travel video makes me want to return to Albuquerque again for at 3 day visit. I went there when I was much younger about 20 years ago.  I would visit my mom there either for Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays. Never really got to see much of the actual city. We either went in to town for shopping or to a nice restaurant for dinner. My mom lived up in the hills and she had a real nice panoramic view looking out over the city.

    Loved the Breaking Bad tour! The Nuclear Museum was fascinating! I'm a cold war kid too. I remember all those drills diving under desks and covering our heads. Also a nurse who appreciates nuclear medicine. So much to see there! The tram provided fabulous views … worth every penny of the the $25 admission. My kid is going to San Antonio for the first time next week … will be looking forward to your footage! This video was a great Mother's Day present Robert …Thank you! And Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's that follow your channel!

    Robert! Greetings from your newest subscriber and I am interested in the solo RV experience. What do you think of the Lance 1475 travel trailer? It resembles your trailer and instead of a couch it has twin Laz-Y-Boy style chairs with a little table. I just finished watching your videos on the way to/from Quartzite and loved all the scenic views. Another question is how has your Kia held up as far as towing the trailer? Thank you Robert and I hope to see you on the road some day perhaps if I should ever get a trailer myself. Oh, almost forgot, the reason for my question about the Lance 1475, is that is the one I am thinking of buying. Thanks Robert!

    Hi Robert, I live in Montana and if I were you I would plan to stay here for at least 4 days because there is so much to see and I would spend most if not all of your time in the western part of the state. Aside from the more well known places ie Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, there is a MUST see drive over The Beartooth Highway. It starts from the NE entrance (or EXIT, depending on which direction you are coming from) of YS Park in Cook City, MT and ends in Red Lodge, MT. It is the closest thing I have come to feeling like you are literally on the top of the world! There are many, many high mountain lakes right along the Highway and the Mountains are unbelievable! Red Lodge is a neat little town and Cook City is also nice but very small-not much there. The drive up Hwy 93 starting in the Bitterroot Valley) is one of my favorites (I live off it ). There is Flathead Lake, (the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi), north of Missoula. Hwy 93 goes from the Idaho border to the Canadian border. I am a travel Nurse and drive all over Montana. Contact me if you need anymore info when you prepare to go. Safe travels!

    Thanks for another amazing video Robert! ABQ holds a very special place in my heart; it was the first place I ever visited in the USA from the UK and although it's kind of out of the way for most visitors to the US I absolutely adore it and have been back many times in the past to visit friends there. And of course, when Breaking Bad became the incredible show that it did I went and did all of the filming locations too! Although unfortunately it was before I made videos on YouTube… So I'll have to go and revisit them for a video for my channel some day!! 🙂 though I do actually have videos from things like the Sandia Peak Tramway on my channel from way back in 2004…!

    Mackinac Island is a must see in Michigan. We stayed at Straits State Park which has a great view of the bridge. Also, I think you would really enjoy Door County, Wisconsin. It is the part that sticks out into Lake Michigan up from Green Bay. Your map is really coming along. Thanks for taking us along.

  • Reply Kat Callahan May 15, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    Glad you enjoyed my hometown. My mother lives fairly close to the car wash. I was back home from Tokyo for Christmas and did midnight mass at Old Town. The issue with Nob Hill is the new Area Rapid Transit (ART) Bus station installation along Central. Let's just say most Burquenos aren't fans, and neither am I. It's kind of the worst of both worlds. None of the advantages of light rail, all of the disadvantages of busses and street cars. Those are the weird art deco sort of median installations you filmed. My opinion is that we should have just built light rail. I love the Sandias and I've done the Tram ride several times over the years. The Church Street Cafe was a good choice.
