Hatch chiles?

Hatch is a small town in south central NM. It is located in the center of our chile growing area and the location of the annual chile festival. The name has been appied to the chiles grown there and in all of the surrounding areas.

New Mexico food flavored with Hatch chile makes most "Mexican" food from Texas, Arizona, southern California and yes even Mexico seem a bit bland by comparison. I know this will start a debate but it is true that once you have eaten our Hatch chiles for awhile, you get a bit addicted to them.

Symptoms of eating Hatch chiles are first a tingling of the tongue. If you continue, you can expect your nose to run and in advanced cases, your eyes to water and your forehead to perspire.

Hatch chiles while flavorful are not especially high on the Scoville scale of chile heat.

Let's get some California chatter going on the back channel regarding our caravan to this Balloon extravaganza.

Are we driving together (but not together?) to the first location?

And btw, where do YOU dump when boondocking? The nearest campground? Truck stop? Behind the Albertson's? The neighbor's back yard at 3am after you get home?

Just wondering...

str8s,

i was afraid, w/ the exception to ms bam, and the times, that this rally or "fiesta", was missing in action... wait... there's the other 345 w/ the funny pink chickens (and high spirits i might add)... so there would seem to be some "gas", in the bag...

is anyone else attending?

there was a rumor of a (regular) coors beer drinkin CPA... but i'll believe it, when i see it...

Gail and I will be leaving Riverside early Wednesday morning, taking the desert highways through 29 Palms and Amboy and then slipping into the cafravan as it passes the National Trails Highway/I-40 exit east of Essex. If we miss you we will catch up in Wiliams. Regarding dumping, we alternate where we camp so we can usualy dump every fifth day or so.

You almost had it right for dumping at home. We stop and dump in the neighbors front yard whether they are home or not! Okay, they did put a clean out on their sewer lateral behind the curb. They even have a hose bib for the blackwate flush fitting. We are planning a backyard workshop and will put in a convienent clean out so we can dump at home in the future.

The big event is less then a month away and it is time to start putting the final pieces together for the trip.

We will be meeting up with the "Hot Air Express" at Little America in Flagstaff. It is located just off I-40 on Butler Ave. It is a major truck stop and had parking for many rigs. What time on Thursday morning will the group be there?

Is anyone else going from Phoenix on Thursday? We could meet for the trip north or you could park at my house (street) if you need to.

Do we have a location / time for everyone to meet near the fiesta yet?

What is the status of the meals? Pot Lucks what nights etc....

Thursday in Grants

The first night we get together always seems to end up with appetizers, margy ball, snacks, wine, etc. or a bring your own chow to the margy ball ....at least that is how it seems to play out with the California contingent.
