Glad to finally put a face to one of my favorite posters. And the last poster is especially good.

Thanks to Gene's timely prompting (whether he meant it or not) I called Enchanted Trails and got one of the last sites for Wed and Thurs. Whew!

If Lewster will agree, there will free entertainment at my site while he installs a new cat heater for me. (Free for you guys, that is). If he doesn't agree, we'll have to move our chairs and coolers back a bit. No heckling and limited helpful suggestions. Perhaps we can pool them the way reporters do, and offer them at less-delicate moments.

Pat

Pat, I'm sure you know that the 'fee' increases with every pair of eyes that is gathered around for the 'entertainment'.

Looks like Pat will pay us not to watch and help.

We haven't figured out what to do after the balloon festivities. Since my birthday is 10/4, I am asking for a Porsche 911, but I have asked for it for decades without any result. I guess we'll go to Santa Fe on 10/4 and stay for a few days.

We're in the loose-schedule boat ourselves. We'd like to go back and visit Santa Fe - perhaps we'll just take the train (if it still operates). I also have a weakness for observing how the bones roll; I understand there is an opportunity to contribute to the Indian economy at the same time.

Lordy lordy...I'm in big trouble now. Better start saving, I guess.

Looking forward to meeting you, Greg.

The train, the Rail Runner, was running last winter, but the new governor is not in favor of it. It's is still running though: new mexico train - Google Search

We are still contemplating SF and/or staying in a NM state park, or something. Someplace we can mark my Porsche 911 Carrera S, red, if you want to take up a collection— think it'll be about $120,000, but Airstream owners are all millionaires, so it shouldn't be a problem.

As for weather info, I use 'wunderground. com' and get previous years data for a location. Still no guarantee, but tells you what it was before. Go to local weather,history data, ABQ, and last years dates. Interesting stuff.

We decided to go to Santa Fe for two nights afterward and we are staying at Trailer Ranch. They charge a premium during balloon week, but I imagine everyone else does too. After SF, 2 nights somewhere, as yet unknown.

Right, that IS the final rule. A cold adult beverage at the end of a long work day is always appreciated. I'll try to have some of my favorites on board for this trip. <grin>

Likewise. We Virginians should lift a glass while in NM, and I'll be glad to host. See the post below about the "final rule" and libations! This will be FUN! How about starting things at the Virginia Commonwealth Rally in September? Our Wally Unit 149 is hosting.
