Gail and I will be leaving Riverside early Wednesday morning, taking the desert highways through 29 Palms and Amboy and then slipping into the cafravan as it passes the National Trails Highway/I-40 exit east of Essex. If we miss you we will catch up in Wiliams. Regarding dumping, we alternate where we camp so we can usualy dump every fifth day or so.

You almost had it right for dumping at home. We stop and dump in the neighbors front yard whether they are home or not! Okay, they did put a clean out on their sewer lateral behind the curb. They even have a hose bib for the blackwate flush fitting. We are planning a backyard workshop and will put in a convienent clean out so we can dump at home in the future.

Are we driving together (but not together?) to the first location?

And btw, where do YOU dump when boondocking? The nearest campground? Truck stop? Behind the Albertson's? The neighbor's back yard at 3am after you get home?

Just wondering...

The big event is less then a month away and it is time to start putting the final pieces together for the trip.

We will be meeting up with the "Hot Air Express" at Little America in Flagstaff. It is located just off I-40 on Butler Ave. It is a major truck stop and had parking for many rigs. What time on Thursday morning will the group be there?

Is anyone else going from Phoenix on Thursday? We could meet for the trip north or you could park at my house (street) if you need to.

Do we have a location / time for everyone to meet near the fiesta yet?

What is the status of the meals? Pot Lucks what nights etc....

Thursday in Grants

The first night we get together always seems to end up with appetizers, margy ball, snacks, wine, etc. or a bring your own chow to the margy ball ....at least that is how it seems to play out with the California contingent.

generally speaking from california, arizona and nevada experiences, the Str8s are right on... our only planned group activity is happy hour(s) and a pot luck on saturday nights. anything else is arranged on the fly (in the southwest i enjoy indian tomb looting and driving around drunk shooting the windows outa old buidings for sport).

but what do i know...

I can attest to this gas powered, highly efficient drink making machine. You'll know when its happy hour by the sounds eminating from the rally area.

Richard, was the reference to the Hot Air Express towards one of our members in the California caravan (who could it be) or to the event we are atending?

Tomorrow we load up and pull out early Tuesday morning. Final destination is the balloon fiesta. Spending some time in Summit County CO before heading to NM.
I'll keep watching this site for updates as I haven't seen a meeting time for Friday morning in Albuquerque (Camping World was a possibility) to hook up with the group. We're spending a few days in Santa Fe before we come in on Friday. Do we have a time and place to meet in Albuquerque or should we go directly to the Fiesta camping site?? Any idea of ETA?
