The caravan from the west arrived yesterday in Grants. We had a great trip across I-40. We had coffee with Terry and Marie who caught up with us in Flagstaff on their way to California. After they headed west we headed east.

We have 9 Airstreams at the KOA and we will be headed to CW later this morning.

Well Mike if you don't make trailer trash queen - I nominate you for president - or at least vice president!

Well, I'm feeling much better realizing that I'm not the only one who isn't there having fun with the crew.

Now just remember you are not required to provide the gas for every balloon in attendance so go easy on that chile, eh?

Whew!!! The spots in front of my eyes turned out to be balloons...no flashback, after all...last night's chil-whatever was really gas-tronomical(maybe that should be -traumatical)...I noticed that the septic truck circled our area TWICE this morning. Really nice evening...thamks to R&J's fire-dancer(and margi-ball). Another 4CU rally is already kicking the charts...here's to you guys that couldn't make it in person...

Thanks for tipping a few for us. Maybe that's why I was a little tipsy last night.

Post some pix so we can keep in on the action.

Yes Brad, a 4CU smile that you'd be willing to share with the rest of us would be great. I'm hoping that was your intent at least.

And thanks to the onsite crew for the headache this morning. And I can't figure out why it is I feel like I've eaten several bowls of hot chili but............ I doubt it had anything to do with the chili we had in sympathy at home last night given it was virtually spiceless and definitely meatless (should that be meet-less?).

I suspect there will be complaints from other balloon'ers about the 4CU group releasing gas well before the balloons are supposed to go up. I was just wondering what the fire hazzard is like there.

Great balloon launch this morning. It's a little windy this afternoon. It looks like the long distance race has been pushed back a day or so. We had a great chili cook off last night, I came in second! The moosetags won with a moose droppings chili. They were all great. Next event is the TTQ and then the pot luck tonight. This is a great event.

BTW, The FCU is buying a hot air balloon, one bottle at a time...

Gosh...wish we had been able to do this trip! ...but that 4-letter word ("work") got in the way this time... Looks and sounds like you're having a blast! Keep the notes and pics coming for those of us who couldn't make it! (I like chile, too, dang it!)
