Bottom line, bring clothes/equipment for all seasons.

Update - we have been given 10 more spots - and 4 of them have been taken already - so we will have 100 trailers this year. Thats a 50% increase over last year. In talking to the balloon folks, we were only able to get more because they had some folks cancel - so once we have a 100, thats it - so if you are thinking about this great rally, you have one more chance. And to think our first year of doing this, we had 20 units.

Being the 40th anniversary, there will be more balloons and events going on.

We will be by far the largest group at balloon fiesta this year.

Gas prices are coming down, so come on out!!

Ken, I have been reading the various threads and not sure where to reserve—here, there or everywhere? We would have to have a place to stay the night before so we could get to the assembly point the morning of the 30th and I'm sure Alb. RV parks are already booked up, so we may have to stay in Santa Fe, although it may be the same there. I just found a place in Alb that has a few spots and have said "yes" on the sign up sheet. What now? Send money to you?

Yes - send the sign up sheet and money to me - I think Vickie at Enchanted Trails has set aside some spots for us - just mention you are with us. If you don't have the sign up sheet, PM me with your e-mail address and I'll get you one

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Ken: We're up north at the Wally Byam Birthday Bash in Baker City, Oregon (great rally!) and we've met some folks who have signed up...Dave & Debbie from Washington (hopefully you'll have a chance to see their vintage rig which they both tackled successfully!). We might have those last few sites spoken for by the end of the weekend!! 100 is a nice round figure...well done!

Since everyone in Alb. will have trouble remembering who is whom, I thought it a good idea to post some pictures so you could know who we are. Most of us will have grey hair, walkers, and all our trailers look the same, so I hope this will help.

1. Me. Do not anger me!
2. My wife when she first met me.
3. Our dog. He will also eat anything.
4. Some friends we will bring. Don't worry about dietary restrictions, but they do like fresh brains.

And our trailer is distinctive as are our tow vehicle(s).

1. We sold our truck to save on fuel. Our new tow "vehicles" only need to stop by the road from time to time and munch some grass.Our trailer.
2. Our trailer.

Can't wait for Albuquerque!
