We were headed to Flagstaff Wednesday morning!

Also, I'm sure glad we stayed until Tuesday noon. Phoenix had a big hail storm Tuesday afternoon and early evening; and if we had gone home on Monday, our truck and Airstream would have been damaged. What luck!

Now, my wife and I just have to sort through the 800+ photos we took!
We were headed for Prescott via Williams on Wednesday morning and began to hear the weather reports as we neared Flagstaff about the tornados, overturned semi and derailed train west of Flagstaff and that I 40 was closed....We stopped in Flagstaff near a gas station with an cover and waited one hour of the two hour tornado watch that was issued. We decided to go south on I 17--drove through some pretty heavy rain--stopping once under an underpass.....then on to Prescott out of the storm. We were wishing we had the Oregon Scientific Weather Station with us at the time.....we have now ordered one. We were very worried about hail but we were lucky......paula

Great photos Charlie......

We ordered the Oregon Scientific WR 602 Portable Public Alert Weather Radio. Emergency Public Alert Radio (WR602) :Weather Emergency Alert Systems : Weather: Oregon Scientific

I ordered it yesterday (800-414-8655) and it was $44.95 + shipping....today's link is more $$--not sure why. I was all prepared to order the "WB603" unit but the person I spoke with suggested that the WR602 would be easier to operate as it has a travel mode that the other one does not have. Have not used it yet so am no expert but sure would have liked to have had it last week. p

OMG, all those balloons and me without my pin

Great photos. What a sight for you folks who were in attendance.

Any Airstream balloons planned for next year?

Hi All,
I'm finishing up the first draft of the Airstream Life Article on the 2010 Balloon Fiesta. We took hundreds of pics and there are some real keepers in that bunch. But I was wondering if anyone who attended this rally has a particular pic that they are really proud of that they would like to see included the magazine article. I can't promise you that it will be published (I don't have the ultimate say), but I will submit it with the article If I really like it. If your pic is published, you'll get full credit in print. I already have one great shot--Richard's Dawn Patrol pic. You can either post your pic here (please no more than one) or you can notify me via PM.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, I've got a zillion, just like everyone else. I particularly like a photo of Lewster and Julie cooking on Pat's grill Sunday night. But when it comes to the balloons, the thing I especially liked is that they let the common folk down on the field.

Thanks for Attending the 2010 4CU Balloon Fiesta Rally!

A big thanks to one and all for attending the 2010 Four Corners Unit Balloon Fiesta Rally...it was quite a memorable event this year with 67 rigs (that's a lot of aluminum)....and hundreds of balloons floating over our heads and Airstreams each day!

Many of you are members of other Units of WBCCI... We invite you to become Affiliate Members of the 4CUnit so that you will be on our mailing list to stay current with what the 4CUnit is doing. WBCCI members just pay our Unit dues of $1 and you're an Affiliate!

We also invite attendees who are not members of WBCCI to consider joining the 4CUnit of WBCCI to become part of this great group of fun-loving, diverse and easy-going Airstream campers. Our main objective is to have fun camping with one another ... The Balloon Fiesta Rally is one of a full schedule of great rallies we hold throughout the year.

Download a 4CUnit Membership Application or contact me ... and begin another phase in your personal Airstream adventure! Let us know if you have any questions or if we can be of assistance. And we hope to see you around another 4CUnit campfire real soon!

Many thanks to the Four Corners Unit, and especially Ken & Ellyn, for hosting another fabulous balloon fiesta. We enjoyed meeting members from around the United States, making new friends, catching up with old friends, and participating in this outstanding international event! See you next year!
