Jan and I plan to be on the road before 6am, we'll see how that goes. It's about a 2 hour drive for us and we are expecting you and your group to arrive between 8:30 and 9:00. We will be parked in the back area of the lot, our numbers are 7513.

You should have my cell number, I have yours from last year, it is the same? It ends with 44?

Got your cell and mine is unchanged. Expect to be waiting with three others if everyone gets to Williams tomorrow afternoon.

We can't get breakfast here at our RV park until 8AM so we probably wn't be at the TA until 9:30 in case you and Jan want a little more time to get to Flag.

Grants, NM...

Greetings from Grants.

Here in Grants today the weather is windy and warm with WIND!!!

50 MPH has not been uncommon since we arrived this afternoon.

The good news is that this should be gone come tomorrow;well, that's if you have confidence in the folks who forecast (guess) the future weather.

We are really excited about seeing all the balloons at the fiesta and are looking forward to meeting everyone.

Jim & Verna

Hmmm...wind is not good for the balloons, hope it is calmer in ALQ. Too windy = they don't launch.

We head out tomorrow morning - driving straight to ABQ, staying at Enchanted Trails - right next door to the Camping World.

See you all Friday! Travel safe ~

Shari, it's pretty windy in NM, too, but it's supposed to be settling down as this storm exits to the east.

Hope you have a great rally. We sure did enjoy it two years ago. We'll return someday soon. Have fun and safe travels.

Travel safely everyone - the winds here have been fierce the last couple of days. This morning wasn't bad but they kicked up in the early afternoon and have been blowing non-stop. Hopefully they'll clear up before Saturday.

Rod and I won't be at the rally but we'll be at the park Sunday night for the evening glow. Hopefully we'll run into some of you.

Pretty empty, but that's not surprising: It's the season to be empty.

I wish we could come by, but we've got a bunch of work to do here, all delayed stuff. Once we're caught up, we're outa here! (At least the Airstream is ready to go.)

Bobz Hog (Bob and Phyllis) and us are at Flagstaff KOA this evening. Aside from my truck problems (see my blog below), all is going well. 100+ in Needles yesterday, supposed to be 32 tonight. Quite a change. Going to try to do La Posada on Thursday but will be in Grants in any event.
