The Fiesta runs from Oct 1 through 9. During this time New Mexico will welcome thousands of visitors. From past disappointment, I can recommend having park reservations as you come to NM and depart NM (i.e. evening of October 4). Not unusual for Santa Fe Skies cg to fill with folks making day trips to Albuquerque for the Fiesta. And Harry's Roadhouse Grill in SF I highly recommend!

All that being said, you will love your spot at the Fiesta with the ability to come and go. Or stock up on food & beverage and avoid traffic and reality altogether. You will also appreciate the comfort and ease of stepping outside in your pj's, cup of Joe in hand, and watch the balloons from your Airstream if you wish. Safe travels everyone!

Will there be a special section for the 31% of men and 14% of women who sleep naked as presumably don't own pj's?

Coffee consumption is down—77% drink it sometime during the year and 54% drink it daily.

Maybe sections for naked coffee drinkers, naked tea drinkers, naked beer drinkers, pj coffee drinkers, nightgown or nightshirt grog drinkers….

I'd better find something useful to do.

We will be leaving Phoenix early on the morning of the 29th and over nighting at USA RV Park in Gallup, NM. If anyone wants to join us in Flagstaff, we will be stopping at Little America and then having lunch at La Posada in Winslow, AZ.

On the 30th it will be a 2 hour ride to the gathering point at Camping World in Albuquerque.

Are there any spots left? We'll be coming home to Houston from Steamboat Springs and would love to attend.

If there are any spots left - or if somebody can't go and want to sell their spot (if that's possible) please contact us here.

Thanks.
Kevin

Kevin,
If you don't find a spot with the 4CU, there are a few spots still available on the Fiesta site, especially off the weekend. We're getting in the morning of the 3rd and staying a few days. Let's park our 30' 1999s next to each other! Welcome to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

Candy,
We will definitely track down that other Iowa license plate at the rally! We were able to get a spot at Enchanted Trails the night before. Now we're trying to decide how far to travel that day; will be working our way down past Denver.

We're getting excited to hit the road, and have been checking our email for any rally updates, but haven't seen any more info yet--were there any recently?

I haven't seen any updates from Ken. Anyone else know? Since I might have missed something? We are so excited!! This should be a really wonderful trip and a fun rally.
Eileen, we are going through Colorado also with a stop for fishing and sightseeing in Santa Fe first.

That is correct - I took a little vacation last week and now I'm slammed with work stuff - plus out of town visitors - so I'll be getting something - actually more than you all can stand soon......... As mentioned above - I'm meeting with the Fiesta Folks on Tues to finalize our parking arrangements - stay tuned!!

rules for guests

As a 1st. timer at the Balloon Fiesta, I have a couple of questions.

1. Is it OK to have my daughter, son-in-law, & 4 year old grandson stay with us? Cramped quarters in a 24' Trade Wind, but we can stand it for 1 or 2 nights.

2. Can we purchase additional balloon field passes, so that we can all go out together?

Thanks
