balloon fiesta part 2

I will be at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta for 10 days so I am dividing it up into several entries.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.  Each day started very early and everyone was out watching all the balloons with their coffee in hand.

This was one of the special shapes balloons.  When I got up close it was really huge.

This was a great pic of “The Breeze”.  The nice thing was that I parked it the very first day and haven’t driven it since.

This cat belonged to Jim and Gayle, who are also fulltimers like myself.  The cat enjoyed just sitting up on the dash sunning herself.

I had several upgrades done to my rig while I was there.  Here you see Terry replacing my taillights with new LED taillights.  They are about 3 times as bright as the old ones were.  They make a huge difference, especially when stopping, signaling or flashing during the day when the sun is very bright.

Mike and Lisa also did several upgrades as well.  They hard-wired in a surge protector that will protect my rig and all of my appliances from damage caused by faulty wiring in a campground.  It also protects against too low voltage, which occurs on a hot day when everyone in the campground is running their air conditioner.  They also installed a Sea Level II Gauge that accurately shows the amount of fresh water, grey water and black water in each tank, battery level and LPG level.  I love this especially since the old gauges were so bad.  Finally they did a complete routine prevent maintenance on all my appliances including my generator.  This was money well spent.

Finally we had a pot luck dinner on Wednesday.  Everyone brought a dish to share with the group.   Mike and Lisa were also invited and Mike was kind enough to answer questions from our group.  He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to RV’s.

It was a great get-together and we all ate well and learned a great deal about our rigs.  This was a very friendly group.  Everyone enjoyed getting together each night to discuss our days and have an adult beverage or two.
