Just take one bottle of wine up with you instead of two and you're good to go...

It's hardly worth leaving the ground with only one bottle. How about leaving the shoes, or the wallet, even the pants. Not the wine!

Talking

Lets see - I like the wine idea! If I take two bottles and drink one after I get in the basket but before we take off, we would be one bottle of wine lighter and all should be well

Question Balloon rides

Seriously now, I would like to have a ride during our stay. Has anyone done that at the event?

I've not done that - but rides are available - contact Rainbow Ryders, Inc 1-800-725-2477 or hot air balloon, Balloon Rides-Ryders Hot Air Balloon Company of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They are listed as the official balloon ride operator.

Coming in from the North

Been rereading the posts again. We are spending time in CO in mid-Sept, stopping in Taos and Santa Fe a week or so prior to arriving at the balloon fiesta. Any suggestions on places to stay in or around Tacos and Santa Fe? Looking forward to meeting everyone in Alburquerque. Anyone coming in from the North on I25 Friday morning??

I am not familier with anything in Taos

Santa Fe - the neatest place is Hyde state park - but is small and only has elec hookups - the KOA is ok and lots of Airstream folks stay at Santa Fe skys. Region 11 had a rally there last year -

Then there is....

Hello all -

Really am sad I won't be here for the BFR.... What an opportunity missed - for me.

For those that coming into the area a bit sooner and looking for nice places... Lynn - ASF member, has a campground in the area of Angel Fire..? Not trying to send anyone anywhere, but then ASF's is a terrific networking tool... and staying with a streamer sounds good to me. Lynn, can you help with info here? since I'm asking...!!!

If I were still in town then, I'd be there AND offering Courtesy Parking as well.... but.... well.... not to be.... have a bottle (or 2) for me, will ya?

Peace out...

Axel

Gail and I have our reservations for both the Wednesday Williams and the Thursday Grant RV parks with the FCU Will probably not stay in Barstow with the group but make a rolling link with the caravan some where along I-40 west of Needles.

Max says HI!!!!

Don & Gail -

How are you all doing??!? Hoping well.

We here are all well. Hectic as we prepare for a move out date on 7/13. WE pack the truck and then it is 'gone' - truly gone. Then we have only what we can carry - for cross country!

Naturally, there is SilverToy. So glad that we have the mobile appartment travelling along with us. Make life SO much more livable.

Max just shot by on his way to brushing his teeth and said HI! as he went by.....

All the best!

Axel
