All great pictures, but I dare say no one has as good a set of pictures as these. For a guy coming from Atlanta, not a bad beer refrigerator now with some new (to me) entries. Thanks for the beer swap! I haven't tapped in to my new friends yet, but look forward over the next few months.

Yeah - I mean, keeping food cold is overrated :-)

Love that the fridge is jammed to the gills! :-)

But it IS food. Haven't you heard that beer is liquid bread?

Watch here for an new thread announcing the 2014 fiesta sometime early to mid Feb - we are confirmed for 200 spots and they do go quick, so the sooner you reserve, the better after we announce.

Talked to fiesta folks and they may be expanding the parking a bit for 2015 so we may be more than the 200 we have now !

Price will be the same ($350.00) and if you look at the RV section of the balloon fiesta site you will see a picture of one of our Airstreams! We are quite a hit with the fiesta folks and so we really look forward to doing this great event !

We are wanting to do this next year. How can we get on your notification list? I have already made reservation at the dry camp area before I saw this great thread. We are really looking forward to it.

You can contact the rally host, Ken J, here on the Airforums ... or email him at BalloonFiestaRally@hotmail.com. Let him know you'd like to be kept in the loop for announcements, etc for the 2014 gathering. Details and registration for the Balloon Fiesta usually begins in February.

Stay tuned to this thread and Ken will announce a Balloon Fiesta Rally 2014 Thread when it's time...

On a very small scale in a different place far away, this is the daily daybreak seven ballon ride launch over the thousands of temples and pagodas built from the time period of 1100 to 1300 AD in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) on 11 November 2013.

Hundreds of tourists from all over the world come to see the temples and the launch and a few lucky ones with reservations made months before get to ride in the ballons at $300 per person.

Hey Zeppelinium & Ken J, your trailers are in the March '14 edition of "Trailer Life". On page four in the table of contents and p22 in the "New Mexico's Enchanted Sunrise" article. The photo is of the NW corner of the Airstream contingent. Check it out.

Any news on when non wbcci and 4 corner members can sign up for the rally?

We are full-timers planning our fall schedule and would love to get in early before it is all sold out.

Thanks..
