Gee, 80 shooters just to practise a recipe - all I can say is "WoW That dedication"!

I'm assuming we are in as Ken asked us to send $$ with the forms - so sending $$ is normally a good thing (right)....lol
Anyway, Sharon and I are very much looking forward to this Rally. It will be our first opportunity to get involved and meet a few people in the Airstream community.

Very Much Looking forward to It.... might even bring a camera along to see if I can get an image or two.

Cheers
Doug & Sharon

I stupidly listened to my friend, who told me to make two big boxes. Dumb. Now I know, just make the practice batches with one small box.

Gonna distribute them to some of my neighbors.

Thanks for the welcome Mona - we are always good for a smile or two....
I'm sure we will have a ton of questions between now and then on what to bring etc as this type of stuff is totally new to the both of us.

Thanks again

Doug

Orange - I go through the registrations once a week - so have not gone through this weeks batch yet - if you sent it last week I'm sure it's in this weeks batch - we are very close to full -

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 in! First timers and looking forward to it! We'll be bringing ukuleles; this is not to say we are any good at it, but the more adult beverages, the better we sound

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.

Thanks! I am developing a plan ... We will bring our guitars, just in case they are called for.

We've got a uke too. Guitar, fiddle, uke, and might bring my flute. The more adult beverages, the better we sound too!

Will do!
Got another couple questions: My husband will be in his busy season, he travels a lot for business this time of year. What's the internet situation out there? Good 3G? 4G? ATT? Verizon? Local wifi hotspot? We've got plenty of electronics, we just need a strong signal.

And will their be any public facilities anywhere within walking distance? Or is it strict dry-camping, bring it and leave with it?

I'll have my tenor guitar with me. Had a couple of nights of good jamming with it at AlumaFlamingo last month.

I'll be coming in as part of the Texas Highland Lakes Unit caravan of 25 rigs.

We are gonna have some fun times jammin'!!!!

It's looking more and more like this will be added on towards the end of our cross country trip. And then after this rally, we'll finally head home to San Diego. Not sure where we'll be coming from. Only thing for sure is that we will not be coming from the west.

In 2012, both AT&T and VZW (my personal and work devices, respectively) were well-covered at the fiesta grounds and around Albuquerque. LTE with Verizon, I don't remember if AT&T was LTE or faux-G at the time, but I'd expect it to be LTE by now. Of course, when the crowds come for the balloon launches and such, there is contention for RF bandwidth and performance takes a hit, but at those times you should be watching the balloons anyway.
