You guys are THE BEST! You really make us feel like we know what we're doing in herding flamingos from the Camping World parking lot; pulling off a mega-potluck for 200 (with such an assortment of foods!) for which the Balloon Fiesta Parking Staff truly appreciated your generosity...and thanked us over and over. Thank YOU all for your kind words. I'm loving all the balloons photos, but would love to see more smiling 'Streamers! Please post more photos!

- The Balloon Fiesta Committee (Ken, Lew, Suzanne & Lynda + everyone else who lent a hand!)

Sue, Della-the-Dog, and I stayed for three more nights after the other Airstreamers departed. We got to know some of the volunteers on the parking staff. Sue commented, "You must really enjoy all the pot-luck dinners." They replied, "You Airstreamers are the only ones who treat us so nice."

You're very welcome! It was so fun seeing you both, and we're still raving
about the great time we had at this year's Fiesta. Hope you had a productive visit to Cortez, CO and didn't get any of that inclement weather. Wish we would have had more time with you and Jan, we always
enjoy seeing you.

Mrs. Charlie M (Dorothy)

Time Flies!

Hey Ken, the 4CU and everyone who helped organize this rally:

Thanks...., words cannot really express the great time & fellowship we had but not enough time to do all we wanted to. Natalie & I stayed until Thurs. to watch the character balloons, unfortunately none lifted off, and not too many got inflated. Now we're on our way west for more sites. None as great as the Balloon Fiesta. Hope to visit ya'll again soon.

Regards, Terry.

Steelgood, What happened with the character balloons. Was the wind bad? I see some are up in your picture. We were going to stay but decided to head east, we have 2,000 miles to home. The Balloon Fiesta was Awesome !! I am ready to come back!!! Airstreamhobo

airstreamhobo:

Yep, weather was the deciding factor! The Dawn Patrol never left the ground, but the officials decided to let the "Balloonist's" inflate their balloons. After about an hour, the officials announced that due to high winds, all balloons were to be deflated. However, we still enjoyed the one, short, hour we had to see them.

Save travels. Terry.

Thanks!

Well we just returned from part 2 of our AS venture (the snowy expanse of Angel Fire). It was a bit chillier than we anticipated, but at least we can say we've seen snow as we head to Christmas time.

The DW and I would like to extend our gratitude to Ken J and the crew for making our first rally a very memorable experience.

A couple of token snaps:

First, enjoy the vastness of it all. Second, get a load of our alternative tow method. Does make me think that there is room for an AS ballon in a future special shapes rodeo.......

Okay now, be nice. I prefer to think of myself as the Airstream/Gypsy of the weather for all things Airstream... :-)
