Officially a rally - Yipee!

Ken J -

Thanks for the clarification on the fact that the BFR will be an official 4CU rally. Terrific!!!

CANNOT wait to see all the Cottonwood folks again! Can't wait to meet all the other folks as well.... new friends I haven't met yet! I'm SURE we'll get along famously....

Will Kevbo be the official greeter again? Can't imagine why he wouldn't be, what with all the $'s to be made... "Dude!"

Waitin', just waitin'...

You see thats why our dues are so high ($1.00) - its because of the big bucks we have to pay Kevin as the official FCU greeter

M&T - you are in Austin - what a great place (or at least it used to be a gazillion years ago when I lived there)........

I'm on board Goin(s)...

I like balloons, new and old friends, AND Margi-balls.

Perhaps with enough hot air we could launch an empty Margi-Ball or two.

Does anybody know if the electrical problems will directly affect our group?

P.S. It kills me to wish for the end of Summer but I'm really eager for this trip.

I read a thread about electrical problems at the balloon rally.

But we have Airstreams so we can boondock if we have to.

My recollection is that in exchange for a great down near the take off field camping spots we don't get electricity or other hookups, i.e. we boondock! Gail and I are ready, our solar will keep us charged long after our water is empty and our other tanks full!

Someone read the previous posts and tell me if I am wrong.

We will have none of the above. This is what I understand; We will have water truck service and pump out service. Battery(s) can be topped off if needed with a generator. I will bring my EU1000 if anyone needs to use it.

Local electrical issue not expected to be a problem to our rally.

The local electrical issue is in the campground, located on the south side of Alameda, across from the park.

Our campground and all the other Balloon Fiesta facilities are located north of Alameda.

Our campground has no hookkups. What azflycaster says below is correct.

We are right on the grounds where the balloons take off - if we were any closer the balloons would be taking off from the top of our trailers

This is soooo cool - I got my computer fixed last night so I can now respond to Airstream Forums on my work computer!!
