USA RV park in Gallup? I would not go near that place. From posts I have read, the owner will toss you in a heartbeat if your dogs wet the ground anywhere except the dog area. You are supposed to transport them to the dog area and not let them walk to it. I have read dozens of reviews of the place and all are the same.

Here's the scam on that.

You cannot pick up any pieces of petrified wood in the park at all. They are very serious about this. You can however buy bags of the stuff from many "trading posts" and the park even sells it. You just can't pick it up for free.

Last time there I had my girlfriend chat with the on guard Ranger while I palmed some some prohibited free petrified wood.

Good practice for your scheduled artifact looting.

Should be Saturday...evening-ish...not sure what time...I think happy hour starts at 3 or 4 am, although it may carry over from Friday at camping whirled...we should be easy to find...look for all the emergency vehicle lights, SWAT vans, BIA officials, and circling news helicopters on the other side of a big pile of burlap bags...we'll be the ones under the EZ UP, watching multicolored flames in the unlicensed fire-pit...there may be some weird, ceremonial-type dancing, and there will be lots of animals...rumor has it that there will be a couple of hot air balloons next door.
Look for the flamingo between the rainbows.

Did I miss anything...?

OK str8strm,

We are right behind you.

The first group of the California caravan to the Balloon rally has arrived in Barstow at the Calico KOA. Kevbo nailed the timing, we arrived just about 1:00PM. So far there is Babeebloos, Kevbo10 and Timemachine.

We will be going to Calico Ghost Town in about 30 minutes when Bamcamper arrives, and then tomorrow we will he heading to the same Railside Ranch in Williams that the str8s are leaving from today.

So far no bail required, but kev is already on his second beer and a third is coming soon.......and he's tthe one driving to the Ghost Town...or not.

So who is gonna try and hook up with us between here and Williams and who is coming to meet us at Williams?

BTW, the WiFi here is top notch, best I have ever had on the road.

Time

Str8strm caught us. We had spent the day at Petrified Forest. Boy - that stuff is some kind of heavy. Thirsty work. Rangers even helped us load. Daytime, you know.

Anyway, we arrived back at our happy camp, and guess who's parked next door? None other than the what may be one of the CA lead elements!.

Page and I had a nice dinner at the El Rancho (home of the movie stars). Hotel lobby ranks with the great railroad hotels, imho.

We'll leave tomorrow for El Morro and sneak into Grants the back way, a day early. Str8strm is going to sightsee around here and arrive Thurs as planned.

Pat

We would like to post but Chauncey and Bob have had way too much to drink.
All the women have been perfectly well behaved.

Just sayin'...
