KOA is north of Balloon Fiesta Park and West of I25 - probably about 10 miles away...

Where we are parking is on the north side of Almeda and West of I25 - there more more camping across Almeda (on the south side) but thats a sand pit and you have to walk across the street a ways to get to the events. We are beach front (and why its so expensive)

Yes meeting us at CW in the morning would be great as Richard says - Fri is a relaxed hang out meet/greet day.

Also, from where we are going to be, is it reasonable for us to meet with the group at the Camping World on the morning of the 3rd and, if so, where is it, and what time would we need to be there?

Thanx, Brian
Brian - when you come down I-25, don't exit at 242. To get on S.Hill Rd from that exit will require immediately getting over 2 lanes to make a left at the intersection. That exit can get VERY congested. (We live at that exit)

Go south to exit 240 - the next one down. When you exit, make the very first right on to South Hill Rd. Go north for about 3/4 mile and the KOA will be on your left. It will be much easier and there won't be any traffic at the exit.

Here's a map...
555 S Hill Rd Bernalillo, NM 87004 - Google Maps

Safe travels
Jim

This is what it looked like last year at CW and what it looked like as we started our journey to the Fiesta.

For Those coming South on I-25

We have enough space at the house to park 4-5 'streams before the start of the Fiesta. Can string out some electric. Water and a dump is available. We are off of exit 290 (on US 285) which puts us about 80 miles from Albuquerque and CW. Also 10 miles from downtown Santa Fe. Let us know.

We are about 45 miles North of I-40 for those coming from the East (exit at Clines Corners).

If you do not have a reservation yet, make one now since RV spots are few and far between during the Fiesta - draw a 100 mile radius circle around Albuquerque and it will be full!

Drop a PM or post if interested.

Pre-fiesta Idea.

Is there any interest in having an informal gathering about a week before the start of the Balloon Fiesta outside of Chama NM? The plan would be to be there about 9/26 -27 and leave about 9/30 or 10/1 to head South. While we were there it would be a good time to take the steam train from Chama to the high country where the Fall colors should be good. A good camping location would be Heron Lake State Park (Blanco Loop as first choce or Willow Creek loop) - $14/night with water and electric. The park is about 15 miles South of Chama. The state park reservation system will be shut down so it is grab a site when you get there.

One can take the train from Chama, NM to Antonito, CO (return by bus) or go to Osier (lunch stop) and change trains for the return to Chama. It is a double header from Chama to Cumbres Pass! The Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad contact information is 1-800-286-2737 or Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

Heron is a great place - we had a vintage rally there several years ago.

Tic toc

Wow, the time she is a flying - The fiesta is just over a month away. Have not heard much about events. What you think about a chili cook off? Rules: 1.Must be a dish that feeds several people and has the word "Chili" in the name.
2. Must not corrode aluminum.
3.Must go good with margaritas.

Chili dump - same rules, no prize

The way it's really spelled!!!

A cookoff sounds like a lot of fun. We would be up for it. However... in Arizona, Florida, Texas or wherever, you can spell it however you like. But remember, you all are coming to New Mexico. In New Mexico it's spelled C-H-I-L-E

I thought Chile was a South American Country. My entry will be Chili Verdes con Carne de cerdo and yes it will have beans.. I did look chile up in Webster and they indicate it refers to sodium nitrate, a chemical sometimes sprinkled on the food of servicemen stationed overseas.

Oh Kevbo - where are you when I need you?
