Once again we had a GREAT time at the balloon fiesta. This was our second year and plan to be there again for 2016. Hope everyone enjoys the trailer cookies. Will be looking for pictures.

That's so true, Atomic, Though we helped check-in and park the Region 11 Balloon Fiesta Rally, We saw more Airstreams than ever before in the standard RV parking south of Alameda. My wife and I were just discussing at dinner what a major event this has become in our lives each year to watch all the Airstreams come rolling in. It has come to mark the end of summer as profoundly as any solstice.

Hi all,

Thank you Four Corners Unit & "Pat's Group" for taking us in/on, Todd, the girls and I very much appreciated it!

Much Airstream love,

We would have had a great time had we come alone. But we didn't. We came to a rally on which a lot of people put in a lot of hours and I thought to thank them. No more, no less.

I'm sure Ken J will respond as well, but the "other Ken" would like to say you are most welcome, and we look forward to seeing you and your "entire" group again next year, whether it be 11 or 22. Thanks for your patience during the staging, caravaning, and parking process.
Happy Trails,

We had a great time as well, despite not parking with the other Airstreams. we managed to get over there twice and met lots of great folks. Need to add some features to my FC so we can dry camp next year :-)
