Albuquerque, New Mexico- October 5, 2012

This morning Tom  filled the water tank and then had the propane and fuel tanks filled in preparation for today’s move to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta.  Tom had made a reservation to stay on the Balloon Fiesta grounds but we would be dry camping.  We left Gallup a little after 9am and after 155 miles a little past 12 noon we arrived at the Fiesta grounds in Albuquerque and were soon parked with hundreds other RV’s.  The Fiesta officially starts tomorrow, Saturday.  The pads on the nose rests on my sunglasses had come off so we needed to go to a Sam’s Club to get a repair done.  But before going to Sam’s we stopped for lunch at brew pub.   We then returned to the motorhome.  And then Tom remembered that he had forgotten to empty the black tank this morning.  We are only 1/3 full and maybe we will be okay-if not, there is a service on the grounds for emptying tanks that we might need to use.

A little about the weather – today it is warm in the mid 80’s with a breeze.  The wind is expected to increase tonight and tomorrow and temperatures are to drop into the 60’s by Sunday.  The wind could be a negative factor with the balloons tomorrow.
