Very cool - we are at our max of 70 units - we always have some cancelations, so let me know if you want to join us... will see what we can do...

Just a heads up - I have deposited all of the deposit checks as of today - You should have an e-mail confirming the final group today, a couple months ago I sent an e-mail to those in the first group of checks that I deposited.

OK

I just got a little nervous as your post came right after mine about our reservation in Grants. Thought that perhaps, for some reason, we got dropped from your list.

Is anyone coming from the east on I-40? I am coming from Memphis, TN. I will probably leave the Monday before and plan to be in Amarillo, TX on Wednesday. I was thinking of finding a place in abuequerque on Thursday or close enough to the east that it won't be to long a drive to the meeting spot on Friday morn. Felicia will be flying in and out of Albuequerque so I will be making the drive alone. Let me know if anyone want to caravan.

Our Route & Plans - I-10

We will be leaving Austin, TX Wednesday morning and traveling I-10 (south of your planned route of I-40) and staying in Davis Mountains State Park Wednesday night. Then driving in to Albuquerque on Thursday and meeting up with some other Four Corners Unit folks at Enchanted Trails RV Park Thursday night. If your plans change and you decide to take I-10 let us know and we would be happy to caravan with you.

Just curious ... why did you choose I-40 over I-10?

First Timer Here

It's about time to start making plans to travel to Albuquerque from Indiana.

It would be helpful if us newbies got some info from those in the know. I've seen that some may stay Thurs. night at Grants KOA and others may stay at Enchanted Trails RV Park. Since I am coming from the East, Enchanted Trails makes more sense (if that is really a meeting place).

I have taken my Trade Wind to P & S to have a gray tank installed and a streetside ZipDee window awning. I have bought a Yamaha generator. My 63 has been restored and virtually all mechanicals are new. Is there anything else I should do?

Can someone post probable activities and customs. What should we expect in the way of pitch-ins, happy hours, etc.

Thanks, and looking forward to meeting everyone.

Mike & Mary

Frank&mike, I will look at enchanted trails tomorrow, thanks for the tip! I am going 40 since it is a strait shot due west on 40 to Albuerquerque from Memphis where I am now.

Traveling I-40 Westward

Dave,

I, too, will be traveling I-40 to Albuquerque. I am still planning my start so let's stay in touch. It is very possible we could travel together. I am leaving from Anderson, IN.

I have a single axle Trade Wind so I never exceed the speed rating on the tires of 65mph. I usually drive 60 - 65 mph and 300 - 400 miles per day. I am no longer in a hurry to get anywhere.

Mike

I believe we will all be getting more details on meeting place, etc after Labor Day when KenJ meets with the Fiesta folks...last year we gathered at the Camping World on I-40 just west of ABQ (and right next door to Enchanted Trails RV park...that's where we will be Thursday night)...we have yet to get confirmation that we will be meeting at Camping World again this year. We have to meet somewhere large enought to handle the 70+ rigs attending...the balloon folks like us to arrive at the field together so they can park us more efficiently..so we will caravan into ABQ...it's quite the rush. We were at the rally last ...it's very laid back...there will be some pot lucks and morning coffee, etc...and happy hours, of course (!) ...most of the balloon events are in the AM and evenings, so the days are free to do whatever you want.

Some of the folks coming from the west gather at the Grants, NM KOA on Thursday night and travel to the rendezvous site the next morning. You need to make reservations at Grants KOA or Enchanted Trails if you intend to land there before the big day.

Look for more details soon from Ken!

Yup - that is all correct - you all will be hearing a lot from me after I talk to the fiesta folks after Labor Day Weekend - soooo stay tuned!

I have a few who had not paid their final payment, I will be notifying those soon - we can't promise any refunds after Labor Day Weekend.

I may be able to take a couple of very last minute folks, but after Labor Day weekend we will not be able to take any more sign ups..

Mike,

Sounds great. I will send you my tentative plans tomorrow. I have them at work on my computer. The milage and speed are exactly what I do. Never more than 65 mph.

My only planned stop is in amarillo, tx at an rv park right off of 40 to visit some friends. Other than that I was going to plan stuff out next week.
