It's almost that time...

The big event is almost here. This will be our 4th 4CU Balloon Rally and each one has been fantastic.

If you will be driving I-40 from the west you are welcome to join up with Jan and I as we travel to the KOA in Grants, NM on the 30th of September. We will be headed to Albuquerque the next morning for the meet up and and caravan into the Balloon Fiesta Park.

Our plan is to meet up between 9 and 10 am in the parking lot of Little America in Flagstaff, AZ. Little America is a truck stop just off of I-40 at the Butler Ave exit which is just West of I-17.

A trip across I-40 would not be complete without a stop at the La Posada Hotel in Winslow to tour the lobby and enjoy a lite lunch at our favorite restaurant in the area, the Turquoise Room. There is plenty of room to park our trailers in front of the building and I think you will enjoy the stop. The hotel owner's wife is Tina Mion and her unique artwork is displayed throughout the hotel.

Let me know if you will be on the journey and we will keep an eye out for you. We can make as many stops as people want, we are not in a hurry. If you have a FRS radio, bring it along and we can keep in touch while we travel.

Richard; question, isn't Little America on Butler Ave just east of I-17?

Either way, we will be there.

Good morning fellow Airstreamers,
Four of us were set up to take two Airstreams (one rented) to the balloon festival this year. However, on Sunday afternoon, I broke my leg in a bike accident and had surgery to repair the bone that day. Unfortunately, that means we won't be able to go to the balloon festival. The Airstream rental company gave our brother and his wife a year to use the money they paid. But we still have the money that we paid for our spot with the Four Corners group. If anyone would like to take our places ( $340 each), we would be thrilled! We would even be willing to give a discount of $50 each, allowing a trailer to go for $290. So there are two trailer spots available, each for $290. Is there anyone out there who would like to make a last minute trip to Albuquerque? If yes, please let us know!
Hal, Terri, Dan and Cathy

Sorry to hear that, Hal. Hopefully you can make it out next year.

That is a really great deal - anyone? Since we are closed on our registration, and this is last minute - that is a screaming deal....

Generator 2' off ground

I am truly puzzled. I can't figure out how to get a 70 lb. Yamaha 2400 generator 2 feet off the ground. I have never seen anyone do this before.

I don't tow with a truck, so I don't have room to bring some large contraption with me, but even if I did, I don't know what it would be.

I appears dangerous to me to elevate a generator. The vibration caused by the motor might walk it right off an elevated platform.

Any thoughts out there? I hope I don't have to cancel because of an ordinance that I can't comply with.

We don't use our generator except for the microwave a few minutes at a time and for our espresso maker. Hopefully those of us who tow with trucks will be able to park near enough to our trailers to leave the generator in the bed of the truck.

How about it Ken?
