We meet at the next exit up N from the Fiesta and they take us to where we take off. Anyone had any experience with them?

Even though I live in Los Alamos, NM, I would attend; however my Airstream does not arrive until January, with hopes of joining you in 2014.

On Oct 4th we will be arriving and setting up, so no planned activities - just hanging around till about 5pm when we do our meet and greet and announcements - so by then we will be a sea of Airstreams !

Weather is looking perfect ! Low 70's zero percent chance of rain and no wind ! Could be best year ever !

The Balloon Fiesta better get here soon. It was 26 degrees at our house this morning. The temperature was confirmed by:
1) Bird baths frozen solid
2) Hummingbird feeder slushy (4:1 solution freezes at 26-27)
3) Frost on the truck windshield
4) The flowers all turned brown
This sucks, and all of my winterization tools burned in the fire which also sucks!

But, not really a surprise, living in Colorado at an elevation of 7,017 feet at the end of September.

According to the local weather people (and the extrapolation between Colorado Springs and Palmer Lake of -10 degrees) this should be the last night of hard freezing temperatures between now and 03OCT2013, when we hit the road.

We did leave the furnace on in the Sovereign, so all plumbing was fine this morning.

Sorry to be such a downer, but the sun is out, the sky is blue and it is already warming up.

Have a great day, and get your campers packed!!!

Ken, questions about the Friday fixin's. Will the enchiladas be meat and cheese or will there be separate vegie cheese ones as well as meat ones? And, will the chili also have a vegie version and a meat version? And, thanks for working out a meal for everyone.

Yes, thank you for setting up a meal on Friday, we are newbies to the Balloon Fiesta. I've waited 20 years to see the balloons and New Mexico is one our favorite places so its a real win for this Texan. I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of your group this year.

You are welcome - we are not making any special arrangements for food needs - there will seperate cheese and meat trays, so some I'm sure will want meat only and others will want cheese only - green chilies are ummm a vegetable they are one of the NM major food groups -

Wow Ken, awesome surprise about Friday dinner. Thank you and everyone else involved in making this a wonderful experience.
We left WI at 9am Sunday morning. Doing some of Route 66 along the way and other sightseeing stuff. If day 1 was any indication of our 3 week trip (not one problem), we are in for a great time.

Hi everyone, I'm on my way to Albuquerque. Until I was on the road, I was afraid to even say anything for fear of something falling through as it often does. Plans to attend this rally have been in the works for over three years, and this year it has finally all come together. I'm way way way past Memphis with the Tradewind and there is no turning back now. See you in a few!
