BALLOON FIESTA UPDATE:

Once again this year I am pleased to find out we have an extension on reservation requirements - I can now take reservations until June 1st - so anyone who wants to attend who has not yet signed up, just send me the deposit check AND your e-mail address.

I will be sending an e-mail to all of you who have sent deposit checks to this point - I will be putting those into the bank and sending the balloon folks our first check - my next deposit will be around June 1st. We will need to get our final check to them in early August.

Looking forward to seeing everyone - each year our rally grows a bit - we have more signed up this year than previous years - so I think will have a GREAT time.

Ken J.

Hi Gail & Bill; Great to hear from you. I'll post later (today I hope) with dates and train info. As for Grants many of the Airstreamers stay at the KOA the night prior, the party begins at Grants. It is only about 80 miles to Albuquerque.

The Grand Canyon RR has economy to deluxe, check out their Web site and let me know what you prefer. I think the Web site is "Grand Canyon Rail Road.com." We will stay at their RV Park it is walking distance to the depot.

Just a quick note: There are several RV campgrounds in Williams. We stayed at one on the north side of I-40, up the hill from the Holiday Inn and several other hotels (sorry, can't remember the name), and at the Circle Pines KOA, which is down the road a little bit; and both of these had full hookups and were clean.

For those unfamiliar with Williams, Arizona, it is a touristy little town that owes its recent grown to the Grand Canyon Railroad. It has lots of restaurants, shops and night life; and it's only a few minutes west of Flagstaff.

Williams & Grants

Susan and I like this plan so at this point, count us in also.
Will need to make reservations in Williams and the railroad. We did this with our son and daughter when they were young. They really liked the railroad to the rim....
Can we just boon dock in a field or something near Grants?
It may be time to start planning ALL the stops on our trip from California....

There is a Walmart in Grants that some folks have used. We will be at the KOA in Grants. It's a nice part with great hosts. It's your last chance to fill up with water and to empty your holding tanks.

The KOA also has home cooked meals that they will deliver to your trailer.

You have mail.....

I just sent out our first update confirming all checks received through last Sat - I will be depositing those funds this week and turning money over to the balloon fiesta folks.

Also, we still have some space left, they have given us an extension of time to make reservations (we can't always count on that) until June 1st.

At the limited risk of repeating myself(myself)...the Grand Canyon RV park used to offer a deal where you could stay with them for 2 nights for $61, or stay with them for 2 nights AND get a round trip ticket on the train for $63...m

Mike; The package deal I mention above is exactly that - two nights at their RV Park and train ticket for two coach fare to the canyon. Since we have the Golden Age Pass/ America the Beautiful Pass, with taxes the total was $216.00.

OK folks - we are nearing a full rally - I think I have 9 or less spots left, so if you are thinking of joining us, I would not think much longer

This will bring us to 70 units - each year we increase our number a bit so - to see how we can get lots of trailers on the field at the same time - so if this goes well (which of course we expect - after all we are professionals), we will again increase the amount for next year.

After the rally is full, I'll start communicating with everyone via e-mail - so please send me your ledgeable e-mail addresses
