Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 – Happy Birthday, Mom!

The “Cadillac Ranch” art project is located 1/2 mile from the RV park I stayed in last night so I decided to stop and take a closer look.  It is in the middle of a field right alongside 40 highway.  There are 10 half-buried Cadillacs.  They were buried in 1974 and people are encouraged to bring spray paint and paint all over them.  So I can say I have seen them now.


I left Amarillo about 11:00 and had a nice drive into Albuquerque (285 miles).  I arrived at Balloon Fiesta Park just before 5:00pm Mountain Time (Time Zone changes when you cross into New Mexico).



STANDARD: $40.00 per night (dry camping) (South RV Lot)

BOX VIEW: $50.00 per night (dry camping) (South RV Lot)

PREMIUM: $95.00 per night (30Amp and water connection)  (South RV Lot)

VIP West/East: $100.00 per night (dry camping, adjacent to the Launch Field with 2 general admission passes included valid during your stay.)

PRESIDENT’S COMPOUND :$250.00 per night (Sites on a bluff overlooking the Launch Field with city water pressure and 30-50 Amp RV Hook-up, this site also includes 4 general admission passes to the Launch Field valid during your stay.)


I checked in my South RV dry camping lot and a volunteer guide found a small site to put me in.  Below are views from my site:


I settled in and went out for some dinner.  My generator worked great.  I can only run the generator until 10:00pm.
