If you guys plan on parking near each other at the Balloon Fiesta you would be wise to rendezvous before staging at Camping World (if it is held there this year). With 200 Airstreams it could be a walk from one end of our area to the other carrying alcohol and chairs etc. Enjoy!

In anticipation of the Big Big Birthday Party, I was practicing making those jello shots today.

Good suggestion made earlier about trying to camp near each other. I'd love to camp near some fellow musicians too. Who else is bringing instruments?

We are driving an MH and would prefer not to tow on this trip. Are bicycles a good way to get around the festival or should we rent a car when we get there?

Well aren't you all Martha Stewart? Lovin' it! I still haven't heard if we're in...


Oregon unit sounds like it could be trouble....in the best of ways, of course!

If by "Martha Stewart," you mean, "Able to mix jello and vodka together in a bowl," well, then yes, I am Martha Stewart!

By the way, the shooters turned out a bit too "college" tasting (knock your sox off, tastes like straight booze). I found another recipe that sounds more civilized. So, once the 80 shooters I just made are gone, I'll try another recipe.

You won't really need a vehicle to get around the Balloon Fiesta itself. The rally site is just outside a gate into the balloon field. There's some stuff to do within reasonable bicycling distance from the rally site, but Albuquerque is a typical sprawling southwestern US city so the majority of destinations outside the balloon fiesta would be more convenient with a vehicle. The last time I was there I went off the fiesta grounds a couple of times for meals in a couple of well-recommended places.
