Jim,

The gathering at CW will most likely occur around the noon hour, but Ken will be posting all of the details shortly.

The fee for the rally was listed for two persons because fiesta provides 2 admission tickets for each RV parking in our area. You may be able to find someone traveling solo in the group and get an extra ticket from them. If not, you can always purchase a single ticket at the gate in the morning. No tickets are required to be in the RV area (just off the field), only to go down to the launch area. During the day (after the morning launch) the gates are open and no one is checking passes.

The price of a daily admission ticket is $6.

Jim... We know that Julianne from Phx (JulianneJ) and Sandy from Utah (sandygd) are both traveling alone...maybe you can work out something with one of them. Looking forward to meeting you at the Fiesta, by the way...

Our reason for Tucson next is, I want to see the Air museum. We won't be able to stop on the way back because we need to be in Monterey, CA on the 8th for the sports car races at Laguna Seca.

Any Tucson recommendations?

Tnx Lyle
Well that's a good reason... Don't hold me to it, but I THINK you can overnight at the Pima Air Museum (on the SE side of Tucson) ...but I'd call to check for sure.

I think the nicest RV park on the East Side is Rincon Country RV Resort, and it's a Good Sam park... Rincon Country RV Resorts - Your RV Resort in Tucson, Arizona

Mission View looks nice, too...it's on the West Side... also a Good Sam... Home Page

These are just a few... look at Travel Life on line for more... Explore RV Camping, RV Parks and Travel Guides | Trailer Life Directory

If you want a public campground in a beautiful desert setting, I'd highly recommend Gilbert Ray Campground (Pima County run) on the west side of the Tucson Mountains...easy to get to even though it's on the west side... Elect, water available but not at the sites... dump station... very close to the Desert Museum, Old Tucson and the Saguaro National Monument West... NRPR - Gilbert Ray Campground

When you head east to pick up I-25 north...you can take the highway 26 cut-off at Deming to Hatch, NM to pick up I-25 north and bypass Las Cruses...it's an easy road and will save you time & miles. If you want to overnight in NM somewhere...try Leasburg Dam, Caballo Lake or Elephant Butte State Parks on the Rio Grande along I-25...

Or you could go north on 90 to Silver City from Lordsburg and take 126 on to Caballo to pick up I-25 ... (We have not driven the road between Silver City and Caballo, but it looks interesting, and we might come home that way.)... There's a pretty nice RV park in Silver City that we've stayed at a couple of times... Rose Ranch Valley RV Ranch (also a Good Sam park)...almost right in town... Official web site and home page for Rose Valley RV Ranch, the newest and best RV facility in Grant County.

Enjoy, and we'll see you in ABQ!

The race should really be heating up by then .

Then on Monday morning we head to Tucson. I was thinking by staying in Tempe or Scottsdale we could avoid some rush hour traffic.

I was wondering if you and/or the other folks from the Phoenix area, on this thread, could recommend a place here we could stay?

Tnx Lyle
We live in Scottsdale and there is this little hidden trailer park near our store in old town Scottsdale.

Thx for the suggestions. Silver City to Caballo was the route we are considering. I hope the road is good.
Karen & Jay
Thx for the input. Is the Scottsdale Trailer Corral your store or the RV Park?
Thx Lyle

Stay tuned.....

We have a much larger group this year - which is good - and we are working out the final details - I'll be in touch with everyone next week after I settle things with the balloon folks.

Bobz Hog will be meeting us in Visalia. We will be traveling together on the 29th to Needles (get the long and boring behind us). The 30th we are going to Flagstaff, probably the KOA (my mom's boyfriend owns it), then Grants the next day.

Anyone following something close to this track?

If we get out late, we will do two long days (Visalia - Kingman - Grants).

Charlie M, CaQuilter, our neighbor and ourselves are meeting in Williams, AZ at the Railside RV Ranch Wednesday afternoon/evening. Will likely go out to eat in town. Leave Thursday morning to meet AZflycaster in Flagstaff at the Little America about 8:30-9:00. We will caravan over to Grants from there. Will likely stop at the La Posada in Winslowhttp://www.laposada.org/awmdata/dot.gif for lunch.

Your welcome to meet us in Williams Wednesday or to meet up with us behind the Little America in FLagstaff or in Winslow for the trip to Grants, NM.

BTW, we had an excellent lunch last year at the La Posada.

FYI
I am trying to put together the 1st Annual Estancia Pumkin Chunkin Rally the weekend of 10/16. Some folks going to the Balloon Fiesta said they might be interested. Estancia is a bout an hour from Albuquerque. There is a description in the forum rally listings. Send me a PM if you are interested.
