Pictures coming...

Made it home this evening from Kingman after 1,060 miles of driving from ABQ beginning at 10:30 yesterday... Sorry to hear about Time Machine and his Yellow Turbo Soot Blaster, but glad AAA came through with tow to Grant's.. We heard from Ron and Deb that tow was on its way.. We honked as we rolled past Meteor Campgrounds on way to Kingman, as we saw silver flashes from high-speed contingent of California group already checked in. Hundreds of pictures still on memory cards for both cameras, and no time after parking and unpacking and unwinding from the drive.. Will try to upload some tomorrow..

Again, out thanks to Ken and 4CU for setting up and hosting the event, and hope next year's event is larger and even more fun. The site was incredible, and the event is just hard to describe even with photographs...

John and Dianne McG

The Balloon Rally continues...kinda

Although the Fiesta is over for the Rally group, the California contingent is still in party mode while on its way home.

The caravan (minus Timemachine) stopped at Meteor Crater and enjoyed additional overbeveraging prior to Tuesday's visit to the crater. Str8strm, Kevbo10, Bamcamper and Babeebloos then moved on to the Colorado River in Needles, where rumor has it, that they continued the "shot glass testing" of Kevbo's ultra special, crystal bottle of Patron.

As for us, Corley Ford in grants replaced Big Yellow's intercooler (the side blew off, no, it wasn't the hose) and we pulled out of the KOA last night and skipped over to Railside Ranch in Williams.

We will be catching up with our California group this morning in Needles.

So, the Balloon Fiesta is still going strong for some of us...it aint over yet.

A birthday party! & Balloons landing next to us!
We had to ssay goodbye to our friends.
Mike and Tracy - We will see you at the 4CU New Years party. Hope the fix to your generator was a simple one. Thanks again for the great DVD Tracy!

Finally the long trip home with a great view from my mirror!

Sitting in the tastefully equipped waiting room at Cummins/ONAN in ABQ(leather couches!)...spent the night in their parking lot, eating left-over Mexican food(yes, it WAS just as good)...
What a great group of people to share time with...Ken, G R E A T JOB, sir, so, when you start the next year's list, put us down as there, already.
We look forward to New Year's at Picacho, and Dead Horse(Richard&Jan-found the registration and check-it will be in the mail).

At the Fiesta Patti told me about a T-Shirt that they have at Meteor Crater RV Park. We had a rally there last month and I never saw it. We stopped on the way home and found that they had a few left. Thanks Patti, it was great to meet you and Tom. We look forward to seeing you again.

A Hot Time at the Fiesta ...

Luke, Donnarita and I caravanned 450 miles back to Colorado and arrived in the Denver Metro area under cover of darkness. We, along with Patti & Tom Reed, all had a superb time and enjoyed meeting many new-to-us enthusiastic Airstreamers.

The Rally location was excellent, a hop, skip and jump away from the heart of the Balloon Fiesta. This enabled everyone to come and go as each pleased, from pre-dawn darkness to after sunset. No busses or waiting in gridlock traffic for us. We were in the front line of all activity. And as Richard mentions, the Fiesta also came right to us: on Tuesday morning a few ballons landed in our camping area, allowing some to earn their spurs as balloon wranglers. Candles have two ends, and I for one burned from both, leaving the Rally as a spent puddle of wax.

Congratulations to Ken Johansen, the FCU officers and organizers for an excellent Rally in a can't-be-beat location at a World Class event. This is what Airstreaming is all about, jumping into fascinating local activities with both feet. I look forward to many more FCU events.

Ken J,
Did we ever decide who the long distance attendee winner was?

Jerry,
I think you won the shortest distance. Most of the balloons flew futher then you had to travel.
