Looks like we're going to have nice temps while you're all here in ABQ for the Balloon Fiesta.
According to the forecast, the conditions sound very good for Saturday morning's Mass Ascension - warm with light winds, a few clouds and no rain.

I hope you all have a wonderful time!

Hey Ernest! I did not know you have gone Fulltime -- WELCOME TO THE CLUB!

Let me know how the Festival goes - this is on our 2020 Bucket list (Next year is the Canadian Maritimes)

We survived the Alaska Highway this year and can heartily recommend the journey to you!!

What an amazing morning!!!!! Had over 500 balloons take part in a dawn lift-off...

It’s really hard to describe this event!!!!

It’s something everyone needs to experience at least once in their life...

Put this on your bucket list!!!!

Most amazing part was you could walk all thru them as they aired up and lifted off.....

WOW!!!!!

RV reservations open 9 days after the current event for the next year, so this will be on Tuesday October 23rd, 2018 at 0900 MDT. if you want a good spot, you better be early - also good spots are NOT Cheap:

STANDARD: $40.00 per night (dry camping) (South RV Lot)

BOX VIEW: $50.00 per night (dry camping) (South RV Lot)

PREMIUM: $95.00 per night (30Amp and water connection) (South RV Lot)

VIP West/East: $100.00 per night (dry camping, adjacent to the Launch Field with 2 entry passes included valid during your stay.)

PRESIDENT'S COMPOUND :$250.00 per night (Sites on a bluff overlooking the Launch Field with city water pressure and 30-50 Amp RV Hook-up, this site also includes 4 entry passes to the Launch Field valid during your stay.)

We have been told that the best tickets are the Premium unless you are good on Power management - I *THINK* they let you run your generator during daylight hours.

Ernest - chime in here buddy!
