Hi Lynn,

Since I am on the 'Organizing Committee, I can say with some certainty that we will be parked in VIP West, as we have been since the first rally here. On the map in your link, it will be on the left side of that area in the first 2 or 3 (or maybe 4) rows. These are a stone's throw from the entrance to the launch field and you can walk onto the field from our spaces in a few minutes.

The view of the balloons filling at dawn is excellent while you enjoy your morning coffee!!

Cool! I'm thinking that the relatives will be at the "standard and premium rv sites" as they said something about taking a bus to the field. Fine by me!

Sounds like they will be at the "dust bowl" on the other side of Alameda. Not too far away, but nothing like the view from the front rows...

Dont worry Lynn, I am sure that with your better seating they will be visiting a lot. Like every morning at dawn for coffee and morning glow

Ugh! We're bringing the bicycles with us for this trip, so I may be doing morning coffee elsewhere in the field.

Sorry, bikes are not allowed inside of the park. There is a bike path that runs between the field and our parking area. Ken knows more about that...

Bikes are great and encouraged, the bike path that goes all over Albuquerque is right at our door step, but as Richard says, they are not allowed on the balloon field itself - ummm thats because it is fillied with balloons! Yeah!

Ah, I shoulda figured. Well, the bikes aren't the easiest means of carting around camera stuff anyway.

Ken - We have liftoff! I mean, we are onboard and the docs and check will be in the mail tomorrow (no, really!).

One thing, though - just between us: it would be helpful if you would let us have the site next to the pool. I don't want to say why that is important, however. And I hope that the Spam vendors are onsite.

I'm pumped. It will be great to be there, to see old friends and put faces to new ones.

Pat

Pat - do want to be next to the deep end (next to the diving tower) or that shallow end?

Lew - he just kinda disappeared - but we will be there!

I believe some time ago he was banned from the forum for being himself. I can assure you he still rambles in his Airstream and has not lost the wandering spirit. I will let him know you are thinking of him.
