Hi, you might not want to do this. This reminds me of when we were there in 2009, I think. I was eating my dinner and the wind started blowing. I heard a FLAP from the rear of my trailer. I immediately went to the back of my trailer and looked up. What I found was that the wind had blown my rear vent lid off. In my trailer, this vent is dead center over our queen bed. [ this would have made a clear view while lying in my bed] Lee Lee didn't understand my urgency to forget my dinner and do something with this vent lid. I was able to borrow a ladder from one of the group and duct tape the broken lid back in place. That night it rain stormed by the gallons, but we stayed dry. Now you know one of the reasons that I installed vent covers on my trailer. Gene, you don't want that view. The best view is from outside.

Make sure you have plenty of memory in your camera/s and never leave your trailer without your camera/s. This is a great group of people/Airstreamers and they gave us memories that we will never forget, not to mention all of the pictures we took. This will be the greatest experience that you will ever have in one place. We are unable to go this year so please post a lot of pictures.


Have a great time.

Airepotter - your question about bikes makes me wonder if you have received the numerous e-mail info that we have sent out - it mentions bikes and a bike tour we plan to do on Sat - - - - - -

Zep - I would bet that Uwe would have that latch - should be easy to find....

Which Airstream...?

I'll send a photo tomorrow if there is a question about what it looks like.

...you have so many. They are widely available, but expensive. You must buy the entire latch. The chrome plating on my first 1976 was so corroded from salt spray, I wanted to replace it. WHen I saw the price, I learned to love corrosion.

I am getting pumped about the big event—my birthday on 10/4. And it is jdthor's too. Unfortunately for me, I'm 10 years older than him. The celebration started last week when a friend down the road and I (we also share 10/4, but he is even younger) had a birthday dinner.

Any other birthdays during this other event? I am still hoping for the Porsche 911, but will probably be disappointed once again. If everyone there chips in just a little more than a $1,000 each, I can finally have the 911. I want the Carrera S in red with the tow package.

No birthdays here, but we're excited to be on our way. We've made it to Garden of the Gods campground in Colo Sprgs and will explore around here a few days.

After the collection for my Porsche, we can buy Lew a cane. It is a big one, but Lew's 11 years younger than me. Isn't anybody older?

I hate to tell you this, Gene, but with (your) age, sports cars get smaller and smaller. Get a convertible sports car. They're a lot easier to climb into and out of.

I'm spending the evening getting all of my eletronic stuff charged up for the trip: Pentax, Kindle, and laptop.

Once again, the DW gets to spend her B-day (sept 28) driving / to our vacation destination. She told me to hold the gift purchases until after she's seen the vendor possibilities at the fiesta......

Getting super pumped about this trip!

Lew, Gene and Mrs. Hansom-Man....happy to have so many 'balanced' Libras at the Fiesta...mine is the 14th of October. Gene, if you give me $1,000 toward my dream car, I'll give you $1,000....deal?! (ps - jammies ARE mandatory if you step outside your coach in the wee hours of the morning!)

Three parks in the immediate area...Enchanted Trails, American RV, High Desert and all are booked. This is a very popular event. There are a few casinos in the area. Ken, what is the name of the one west of town. It's out a ways, but drivable to get one to CW between 9-12:00. Also, there is a funky RV resort on the south end of the Turquoise Trail, anyone know the name?

Sleeping temps were perfect here in Albq last night. ET is filling up, but where are all the Airstreams??

It's going to be tough finding places in Albuquerque at this point. Widen your search to outlying areas, including possibly north of Santa Fe, south of Los Lunas, east of Moriarity, and west to Grants.

Fbg',

There are a lot of casinos between Alb. and Santa Fe along I-25. Some may allow you to park overnight while you lose all your money. There are some west of Alb. along I-40 also.
