Cool sure, right, what ever you say, count on it

Ken,

Didn't someone else already say "the check is in the mail"? In that case I will just say "you should be getting our check any day now". And not to be fuzzy, what day is it anyway?

John

Ken, if you said that if you didn't get a pm then that means you're paid? So does that mean that since I did get a pm that says I haven't paid then I haven't paid?

Huh?

Yes if you got an e-mail it means you need to send your second half - that is if you have not already paid your second half - in which case I did include a couple of folks who had already paid the full amount ($260). Now if you have not paid your second half and for some reason I didn't include you in the PM's, then you need to pay your second half.

Make sense..... ? Good cause it doesn't to me.....

Believe it or not I'm a CPA - pretty scary....

Sorry - I was teasing and having thought about it, realize that you're going to get lots of inquiries, so prob should have rethunk silly humor.

So what do you get when you put two CPAs together in one 'loon rally? I guess we'll find out. Hopefully before the others do.

Let's see if I have this right...you didn't, so we did, or we must have because you didn't have to...thanks for the confirmation.
If mid 70's are cool, to you, can you remind me what we might expect for the rally weather...? Also, is there anything we might bring to facilitate or enhance?

Pat - oh no need to be sorry - I thought you might be kidding and as you can see from my response - I tried my best to confuse you back You are a CPA - ohboy - we are a mess now.

Bob - what we are doing is putting folks across the street and then if there are any openings, we can move you over with us - you can join us for everything we do, just don't have any spaces left where we are - at least as of yet. PM me if you are interested.

Michael and Tracy - it should get upper 70's low even low 80's during the day - course it can also be in the 50's too - night cools to mid to lower 40's - in other words nice beach weather for those who live in Silverton.... Thanks for the offer to help - stay tuned - we will be talking about pot lucks, community activities etc etc - so we can start planning all that as we get a little closer. Don't plan on a whole lot of sleep time though - there is much to see and lots and lots of visiting to do.....

Mid-70's! Perfect, my trailer is Mid-70's.

The directions we got from the balloon company we are flying with said it would be cold in the early morning. I can't wait for that.

We had another day in the teens today, 114.

Ya it could be in the low 30's - in the balloon, however, you have a small heater.......

Aren't you nice - - - - - - a fine example of what a good husband should be..... hmmmm I should work on that one...

You should wait till the balloon rally - tell her you want to see what the inside of a gondolla looks like - get her in, start looking around, then all of a sudden someone lets go of the ropes and you yell out a wooooops! Happy Anniversary dear....

Do you guys think we will need to make reservations in order to fly (or float, as the case may be?)

Yes I would make reservations - the balloon fiesta official operator is Rainbow Ryders 1-800-725-2477.

Someone in a balloon should take pictures of our rally site, should fly right over it....

Yes. I booked our flight through Rainbow Ryders. They are the offical balloon ride company of the fiesta.

I will be snapping away. If each picture is around 2Meg and I have a 1Gig card in my camera I should get 500 pictures before I need to download. Should I get an additional card?

Don't know - theres lots to see....at minimum I would at least make sure the card is empty when you start....I tend to take a ton of pic's, then erase the one's I don't want.....

On the other hand I would think you want to make sure you have time to just enjoy the flight - not taking pictures - I think you'll be fine with what you have.

Balloon crewing & possible flight

Carol and I have been crewing for a local pilot for the past 15 years or so. He has one of the smaller balloons, "Double Flash" that can only carry 2 adults beside the pilot. He "pays" his crew with an occasional flight.
If you are interested, you are welcome to crew with us or you can look at the crew web site and sign up with anyone else;
