Ah, now that's the kind of pic I've been looking for! Attached is the PP'd version!

We have a couple of Airstreams here from the rally, and we got to talk at length to them about the event last night. I think Maria and I made the right decision: Next year we won't be hosting a Raspberry Rally for DenCo so that we can make it to next year's balloon fiesta!

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.
We've been wanting to go to WSIKF for years but haven't been able to because of Rod's work schedule. We do get up to Ft Worden for the kite builders conference every couple of years though.

Loved the picture of the 64 fliers. It looks like they were all flying custom Revs

Thanks to all that attended - as usual, my only regret is that I was not able to get around and spend time with everyone - I think we all had a really great time.

There is serious discussions going on about talking to Airstream and either getting them to do an Airstream Balloon or giving the name rights to a balloon - either way that would be really cool - stayed tuned.

For those of you who missed this year - and you really missed it - watch the forums around the first of February for sign up information - the dates are Sept 30 - Oct 4th and next year is a biggy - its the 40th anniversary and so they will be doing some extra cool stuff.

See Ya'll then!

Thanks Ken

A great big ATTABOY Ken for putting this all together! As usual it was a blast.

With next year being the 40th anniversary of the Fiesta, will we try for 100 Airstreams in attendance?

Got home to Tucson today after leaving ABQ yesterday and spending the night at Caballos Lake State Park south on I-25... When the dogs woke us up this morning at 7:00 AM the first thing we mumbled was, "Where are the balloons??" Nice seeing old friends and making new ones.

How was your drive home, Terry? We hit some heavy rains late Monday between Sunset Point and Anthem. No hail or tornados, thankfully.

Mike...we had smooth sailing all the way...yesterday south through NM we could tell it had rained before we got there, but we hit no rain (a little would have been welcome to rinse off the Balloon Dust and Travel Bugs)...then today it was clear and dry...a little wind when we got to the AZ border, but nothing too bad... Glad you made it home safely!

Hi Brian, Claudia, Tyler and Dylan, Great photos! We enjoyed being right
next to your adorable family. Hopefully we'll camp next to you again someday.
