As you can see (see attached schedule of events) on Sat and Sun night they will have a balloon glow and fireworks right out your front door!

There will be not waiting in a car to get in - they charge $10 for parking and $6 per person to get in, but it will not cost you anything because of your 4 admissions included in the $65 camping fee.

Cool huh!

True...but I was also looking at it as extending an olive branch to Regional...if you know what I mean.

I have 17 on my list (if you have not signed up on the forum, please do so) and a couple that I've received private e-mails. So we have ourself a rally.

We are required to pay 1/2 now ($130 each site) and the rest is due by August 31, 2007. They do have a refund policy of $10/day if you decide later you cannot make it.

So if you all can please send me your deposit made out to the Four Corners Unit and send to

Ken Johansen
P.O. Box 1554
Tijeras, NM 87059

I'll need to send them money within the next couple of weeks - I'm going to tell them we are taking the 20 spaces I reserved and see if I can hold more.

We are going to have a great time!!!!

Ken J.

Whens you birthday in July - I'm a July baby too - the 18th - I want a generator too. And yes this is my excuse for a generator - btw Honda has a booth there every year - so you can buy one there - we will all help you pick one out

Will figure out a place for you to park Thurs night - lets see how many we have coming in on Thurs - will get something figured out....

Soo from Socal?

What is a good halfway spot to camp overnight....and when should we avoid hitting the Phoenix area? Or is there a good alternate around the traffic?

Ron and Debbie,

We are going to take I40 across and stop at Meteor Crater on the way to the rally in NM. The campground is right off I40 (200 yards) and real easy to access. We stayed there before and found it worked great for a one night layover. The drive to Albuquerque is no problem from here, which is just a bit past Flagstaff. We should consider a caravan.

John

John,

"A bit past Flagstaff" Our oldest daughter went to undergraduate school at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, we made the trip many times. From our house to Flagstaff is about 500 miles to Alb about another 250. Williams is a little over 400 and about as close to halfway as you can get.
