So, you are going to keep everyone suspended till then Ken? Everyone will be basket cases while waiting. Expectations will balloon.

I just couldn't help myself .

Thats good - next year will be even better (although have not figured how to do that yet...but will come up with something). So save your pennies, and plan to have a GREAT time!!

The only way it could be better is to hold off on the rain. had a great time this year and hope to be back next year. It will take more than penny saving to make it again.

Hi, Ken. My wife suggests that you have the pancake breakfast twice instead of once; Or better yet every morning. The famous "Pancake Breakfast" was a big hit with us. Don't forget the Blueberrys.

Hey,........ how about four more pictures?

Weren't those blueberrys incredible!! If Richard and Jan are cooking, I'll be there....

Maybe in addition to the trailer trash queen - we could have the best pajamas contest....

Something I've noticed: in every picture the men are all so much older looking than their wives. Do the women of Airstream land retain their youth and beauty just like the trailers, while the men age like the TV's?

Wait a second - I resemble that remark

I tell my wife all the time if I dyed my hair I would look 10 years younger too - don't know why I get this certain look when I say that...

If I dyed my hair, I'd look like an old man with a dye job...I've earned every gray hair I've got, and all those I've lost

From some of the pictures I'd have to say that having hair to dye was a scarce commodity on the TV side of the unit. And from the look of it the few guys who do happen to have hair blend in nicely with their Airstream.

Looking forward to 2009, we have 30 spaces reserved and the good news is the balloon folks have not raised camping fees, so the price will be the same as this year - expensive, but very well worth it!

Look for an announcement in Feb 09 - will need to get deposit checks to the fiesta folks around that time. I cannot promise a spot much after March - at this point we can have more than the 30 spots I reserved if we find we need them.

So tune to this channel in Feb! I will close this thread at that time and open a new one.

Yippy! Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Ken J.
