ABQ Balloon Festival (Albuquerque, NM)

 

First a Happy and Healthy New Year to all our family and friends.  It is now 5777!  We are having our holiday dinner here.  The Brisket is made and gefilte fish and horseradish ready!

As you may have noticed I have been using Facebook more and more to post where we are. 

There are too many pictures and videos right now to put it on Facebook.  So I am using the Blog. 

For the most part I will use Facebook and on occasion I will use the Blog for pictures.   If you want to keep up with Roan on the Road.  If we are not Facebook friends, please send me a friend request.  Thanks.

We are now at the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, dry camping with the Escapees Boomers group.  Dry camping for those of you who are not RVers, is being off the grid.  No water, no sewer or electric connections.  We carry our own fresh water and store the sewer water until we can dump it.  We have solar and a generator for electricity. 

There are hundreds of Balloons, of all shapes and size, from all over the world.

It all starts before Dawn.  We were up and on the field before 5:30AM!
