Balloon Fiesta ended with a very windy stormy weekend. No flights with the exception of a few folks who had lawn chairs, awnings and Slide Toppers blown away or off. This is serious stuff at this altitude!
On Monday the wind abated to allow us to move to the SKP Park in Deming, NM. This was a run of 250 miles thru some desolate country.
I’ve kept myself busy trip map planning for our upcoming pre-run of the 2015 Rally to Kino Bay in Mexico. There are 2 other rigs j4oining up with us for the trip which will take about 2 weeks.
Today we went 37 miles south to the border town of Las Palamos, our mission was to acquire visas and have a great lunch at the Pink House. We got the visas ($24USD each) and the photo tells the rest of the story. Can you believe I gave the waiter a $3 tip to take this picture?
About 10 miles north of the border there is a large Airfield/Private Condominium that has been abandoned. Kind of sad to see a few Million Dollars revert back to nature. The Bi-Plane’s prop is still turning to no avail.
Tomorrow, we will move to the SKP Park in Branson, AZ. We always find this spot entertaining and restful.
