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..

Ken

Last year, there was a fellow at the Fiesta who did work on various AS's. Is he going to be there again this year? I have a little project I'd like to talk about with him. If so could you have him contact me.

Fiesta plans.

Charlie & Dorothy

Have you finalized your plans yet? We've been on our way to Albq for 3 1/2 weeks now, with a few side trips. A week in Hamilton MT and 1 1/2 weeks in Glacier NP (east & west sides). We're now in Yellowstone & Teton NP's. Next week we'll be at Mt. Rushmore. Etc, etc, etc.....

We stopped in Las Vegas, at the Oasis RV Park. You had recommended it on another thread. Great place to stop.

We'll be approaching Albq from the Northeast. So we've booked the 30th at Enchanted Trails. See you on the 1st.

Lyle & Margie

Lynn and I are very excited about this, our first, Balloon Fiesta.

After talking with Ken J at Salida, we are looking forward, not only to the balloons, but perhaps some kite flying, wind and space permitting.

What do you think, Ken, should folks bring their kites?

Lyle & Margie; Yes, our plans are to stop at Williams, AZ, two nights and train ride to Grand Canyon. Then on to Grants NM the night prior to heading into the Balloon Fiesta. Looking forward to seeing you two.

Jim, there have been folks flying kites on the field during the day when there is no flying. Big open space - all you need is the wind.

Yes, I got your e-mail about the Buick. How about a photo pr two?

The kites are in the truck. We are in Crescent City CA for a Labor Day kite fly.
Next stop, home for a few days, then on to Santa Barbara for a unit rally, then on to the Balloon Fiesta.
This should be a great time.

For those interested, After we left Salida we went to the Washington State International Kite Festival where, among other things, we were part of a world record setting Revolution Kite mega fly. We joined 62 other fliers from around the globe to set a new world record of 64 kites flying patterns together. The old record was 54, set in Bristol England in 2008.

On the Road to Albuquerque

And so we have been on this road, this destination since April 1st..

.as we sold our home and began ful timing this has been our destination for this leg of our journey..

When we arrive at the Festival we will have logged some 30,000 miles of exploration total......and only 12,000 of that with airstream in tow

We left Bastrop, Texas headed for Arkansas to celebrate my Aunts 96th birthday...our plans set in jello but somewhat directed at heading back to New Orleans and following the Mississippi river upstream to its source....
and we did make it to its source...but only in a round about way

First detour....as we headed to Eureka Springs and then into Missouri and then Indiana and then to the Midwest rally at whittington woods.. ILL

Then to Ohio to spend Memorial day and a few days with friends at Barnesville OH....

Then to friends to courtesy park with Lou and Larry at Lagrange, OH
Then to White Pigeon, MI to coutesy park with Bud...

then off touring Michigan and to the UP and fell in love with the Great Lakes and Lake Superior in paticular....

but then it was off to Wisconsin to the origin of our English Cockers , at Two Rivers
Then into MInnesota and a treck to gunflint pines and back to Duluth for a great stay at the boat basin....

A treck across North Dakota..beautiful state..across US 2...then to Montana and the Glacier NP and into Washington and Yakima, Olympia, Seattle..

.jumping onto the US 101 and a tour down the Oregon Coast where we now sit...ready to slide down the US 101 in California....

All headed for the Festival...................

If you are interested, we are going to Williams, AZ on Sept 28, take the train ride to the Grand Canyon on the 29th and on the 30th meet up with a group from AZ near Flagstaff. From there lunch at the La Posada Rest in Winslow, AZ and then on to Grants NM, KOA for the night. On Friday Oct 1, early departure for Albuquerque and the rendezvous point to head to the Balloon Fiesta. You will need to make your own reservations for the train/RV park in Williams.
