No damage done. Got a new tire in Flagstaff by three and continued on.

See you all on Thursday.
Did Charlie have his floor jack with him? That saved me some work when we were traveling with them from Albuquerque to Fort Collins last year.

We arrived in ABQ this afternoon after attending the 4CU Heronm Lake Rally 15-20 Sept, then exploring the Jemez Mts (which were beautiful...stayed a a couple of great campgrounds)...before heading to ABQ... We're now at the Enchanted Trails for a few days of regrouping, restocking and full hookups before the Aluminum Convergence at Camping World right next door. We know there a few others here already as well...we haven't had a chance to say "hey" though... Two sets of friends/attendees from TX will be here Thursday afternoon, too... We're going to have such a great time! Can't wait to see you all!

Ste spot, Jim Foster and Richard

Suite Spot we are across the street from you #208. Met your hubby yesterday. Jim, glad you got a tire, see you Thursday in Winslow. Richard, yes I had the big floor jack, but Jim used plastic blocks to jack the tire. However, I had the trusty compressor and Honda 2000 to get the spare up to pressure.

Train ride to the canyon today, it was fun. Met some new Airstreamers in the RV park here, all are heading to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta.

That compressor is nice.
Thanks again Charlie

The blocks were easier than having Charlie unload a bunch of stuff to get to the jack. I used them at the tire shop as well. Had the trailer up, spare dismounted and put away before they even got started replacing the blown tire.

See you all tomorrow at La Posada.

Good morning from Grants, NM

We had a nice ride across I-40 yesterday and pulled into Grants around 6PM last night. This place is full of Airstreams, about 2 dozen! Meet with some old friends last night and made some new ones as well.

The KOA even had the Airstream turkey diner special on the menu last night.

We will be moving this show to Camping World in Albuquerque this morning and then on to the Fiesta.
