The world famous Hot Air Balloon Fiesta starts on Sat.
We have traveled a great distance to get here and are really looking forward to this event! 200 Airstream rigs will be staying on the Fiesta grounds organized by 4 corners unit and I think another, which I do not remember which. They have apparently had this arrangement for many years. Maybe you will see us on the grounds on the news. Just look for the silver trailer

I went to the commissary tuesday to load up for the Nor Cal Forum Rally next week. It was only open because of the perishables that would get wasted. then it closed wed. One day into the FUBAR, like that's gonna make a difference. None of the employees were thrilled about being out of work for who knows how long. I'm getting tired of the c- students running the country.

Don't know about National Parks, but here's what Corps of Engineers has to say about their campgrounds:
Quote:
Campers who are on site prior to the shutdown going into effect will be required to vacate campgrounds not later than 8 p.m. the following day. These campers may elect to leave their campsite reservations open for possible use after the shutdown is lifted. Campers will receive a refund for any unused portion of their reservations.
Customers scheduled to arrive while the potential shutdown is in effect may cancel their reservations for a full refund. These customers may also elect to leave reservations open for possible use after the shutdown is lifted and request a refund for any unused portion of their reservation due to the shutdown. To request a refund please contact the reservation customer service at 1-888-448-1474 (TDD 1-877-833-6777). The reservation service will automatically cancel reservations after a customer’s scheduled departure date during the shutdown period if the park is closed and the customer chooses to do nothing.

You can find these on the CampWhere app, which has all public campsites.

We love it.

Apparently Campwhere is only available for Apple devices, not for Android. I get by just fine with Allstays on my droid tablet.

It strikes me as odd that when open how often do you see law enforcement on these public sites ?? But now that they are closed they are present and visable to keep US out.
For example: The WW2 memorial. Been there several times and never saw any Rangers but they are front and center to keep the WW2 VETERANS out. I presume the same situation exists at the nearby Vietnam memorial. I'm not there but if I was I would have been arrested.

Thanks, my RANT is over. If I was there I, of course, would have gotten there with my Airstream in tow.

Please try hard to keep off the political drumbeat. We've deleted several posts, and we're watching. However, it's hard to keep track of everything (and live a reasonably normal life while polishing an Airstream), so we rely on you to practice some restraint, too.
