Remembering Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta # 5

Treky did his best to select a campsite close to the action.  I think he did a good job.

When a balloon pilot looks up, this is what he sees.  He cannot see another balloon above him so higher balloons must give way and dodge lower balloons.

This has been a very good year for our team (Ron, Tippy and Treky).  We have been on the road (that is away from home) for 181 days so far this year (2015)

We started the year at the Rose Parade.  In January, we went to rallies in Homosassa, Florida and Crystal River, Florida - - In February:   Silver Springs, FL, Saratoga, FL rally, Lake Panasofkee, FL;  March saw us in Myrtle Beach State Park, SC;  We were in Oak Mountain State Park, Alabama and a rally in Shreveport, Lousiana in April; In May, we went on a caravan going to Nashville, TN, Memphis, TN, Little Rock, Arkansas and Branson, MO - We saw 19 musical shows;  in June we were in Pennsylvania and West Virginia; We were at the exciting Oshkosh, Wisconsin Fly-in in July as well as the Upper Peninsular of Michigan; Green Bay, Wisconsin;  as well as a rally in Madison, Wisconsin;
August saw us spend time in Nashville, Tennessee attending a Roadtrek International Chapter rally - then on to a Solotreker get-to-gather in Hot Springs, Arkansas and finally to the Albuquerque, New Mexico Balloon Fiesta. In November, we spent our annual Thanksgiving holiday in Cedar Key, Florida. 

Now we are headed to Bushnell, Florida to spend Christmas week.

We'll  see you there.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
