Dave - that video is in the sand pit across the street from Balloon Fiesta park - no problem for us - that is one of the reasons why we pay extra to be in the VIP area - the other reason is we are right on the Fiesta grounds where the balloons take off.

I attended the first event. I can't believe it was 40 years ago! Boy would I love to go again, but probably not this year.

We made the trip in '07 and ran into a wild and crazy bunch of Califorinjuns. Any chance you guys will make a return pilgrimage?

Peter - wow you were at Balloon Fiesta #1 - that one took off from a shopping center parking lot - you won't believe it now - has its own huge field and a really museum - its really a beautiful site they have for their very own now.

Pat yes at least some of them are return - but it won't be the same without you!

The lady in the video with the white dog (Mr. Zax) and her husband are kite maker/flier friends of ours from Costa Mesa, CA. They are the ones who made and uploaded to video to YouTube. They were camped a couple of spaces from the RV that got stuck.

Hope we can come this year; we have a relative who may (very inconsiderate or our needs, imho) be scheduling her marriage for that weekend. (Priorities - pah!)

We are in again for this year. We had to cancel last year because my wife broke her leg in Jackson, WY. My brother and his wife are coming too.

Pat - how inconsiderate!!!! - Anyway, hope you can make it, we so enjoyed you a few years agon

H - Bring your bikes! We will make sure your wife doesn't break her leg - the bike path that goes all over Albuquerque starts right out our door.... So glad you can make it this year - I know last year was kind of a bummer for you...

Yes, Ken.... And in a VW microbus! Life is good. It was an amazing site then and I bet it still is! I can't wait to see it again. Maybe next year.

sempi - it depends this is a buddy rally - we have allowed some limited SOBs to travel with Airstreams - otherwise an SOB should register directly with the balloon fiesta folks - its the same price if you register directly, but they would not be parked with us.

Peter - you would not believe what it has evolved into!
