Thanks Richard for dog info.I had not even given it a thought since most RV places let you have your pets.
See you Thu.at the Grant KOA.

Jim,
You will get to Grants long before I do on Thursday. I figure you will be setup by noon and have a cold clamato and v waiting for Jan when we arrive. Could you remind the good folks at the KOA that we are together and see if we could park together? Last year we were all in one area near the field where the pets were walked.

bredlo.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the Fiesta. I'm sure there will be no issue with the pup. I would suggest that you have a rug for the dog outside the trailer. The area is packed gravel and there is no grass for the dogs to lie on.

Smile Head 'em up -

I'm loaded up and moving out in the AM. Looking forward to seeing those of you from last year and making friends with those who are coming for the first time. Have table, chair, and Zap who will turn 13 on New Year day.

Have a safe trip and we will see you at CW in Albuquerque. Jan wants a ride on your scooter this year again.

Modesty is a fault, and I have none...

Greetings,
As an wannabe-Airstream-owner, I'd love to come walk around all the Airstreams that will be visiting Albuquerque for our Balloon fiesta. I'm sorry that I've not read all the threads on this...but wondering where you'll be staying, and is it possible to come and visit? Thanks!

Please do stop by. If we are at the same location as last year (and we should), we will be next to the balloon museum which is located at the end of the field. With 30 Airstreams parked together, we should be easy to find.

Hey gang!

Hitting the road tomorrow at around the crack of noon!!!!!

I'll be headed thru Moab, UT on Monday with a late Tues. afternoon arrival in ABQ. I have some work on a friends new trailer scheduled for all day Wed at Enchanted Trails RV Park in ABQ, and on Thurs. Ken J. and I will be 'walking' the approach route to the Fiesta Park so there will be no lane challenges this year.

I WILL be working at this rally (primarily for Aqua-Hot, which is a hydronic heating system on the large diesel MoHos), so if any of you have Airstream problems that need to be addressed, let me know via PM.

Only a few more days!!!!

First of all - safe travels to everyone

I just have a couple of questions...

How many chilE chefs do we have for friday? For those of us who are making chilE, how much should we be making? What about bowls, spoons etc?

Is Saturday's potluck planned or is it a true pot luck??

Just to get everyone excited... the embroidery on the FCU shirts looks great!!

J&R - PopRivet is the chili man. He is bringing the stuff to go with the chili along with the cash prize for the winner. I am preparing my batch even as we speak. Mike (scarpirony2) mentioned that he has made some as well. I hope the breeze is blowing East right now so you can enjoy the aroma of my Baby's Breath Chili. Not too hot , but tons of flavor. All meat and no beans....

OK - so Rod and I were just talking it over and we'll do New Mexican Green Chile Stew. Somehow that seems appropriate.

Sorry to be jumping into the fray of conversation at such a late date. Luckily Mike and Tracy wrote and woke us up to the fact that it was upon us. Time flies! Living in one place (Phoenix) for 32 yrs. in a big house and downsizing to simpler, more remote and appropriate environs has been a (happy) challenge. I should whine; don't tell our full-timers who can merrily cram what really matters into their rigs. (True adoration and envy of them!)

Anyhow, we will come bearing Steve's chili so count us in as one of the suppliers of the goods.

We'll be sneaking in the back way from Camp Verde, AZ...across 260 and up 117 in NM to Grants Pass. Is there still room for us at the KOA? If not, we'll meet up the next day there for the Caravan in with you guys. Sorry that we haven't read everything posted to know the name of the KOA to seek refuge at. I'm sure I can look back and find it or figure it out, just getting a late start.

4 DAYS!!!

Reg

Glad to hear from guys. Life must be good in the Verde Valley. Here is a link to the KOA: Grants New Mexico Camping, Grants/Cibola Sands Campground in New Mexico - KOA in Grants
I just looked on line and they have a few spots left, grab one. If you can tell them you are with the Airstream group and hopefully they can get us together. If not, it's not that big of a park. C U in a few days...

We're parked in a closed weigh station just south of San Ysedro(sp?)...about 40-50 miles out...I only brought about 1 1/2 lbs of chile/i/ly...I left the chipotles out at the last minute...WAY too hot, this year...
