10/7 OMG 5am comes early….lol. This morning it was dark and cold, 45 degrees. We dressed in layers, something we haven’t done in quite awhile. I did remember a hat but I forgot gloves. At 6am we took the shuttle bus to the balloon field. Some of the balloons were already inflating and the field was filling up.
We got back to the RV and finished watching the balloons going over or landing at the end of our row.
Since I got up so early I laid down for awhile. We were going to meet another couple to play golf. Well it ended up that I felt awful, i was so cold, I was shivering. David I’m glad went off to play golf.
At 4 pm we made our way over to the Hospitality tent. There was a Mariachi band that played for about an hour.
At 5 pm dinner was served and tonight was enchiladas, taco bar and all the fixings. Sopas with honey was dessert.
We were going to the balloon festival to see the gas balloons launch. These balloons are entered in the America’s Challenge Gas Balloon Race. It is a distance race so the balloons can often go for 2-3 days. The pilots sleep in 2 hour shifts. Very exciting!!
