  12. BALLOON FIESTA HOP October 2-11, 2015 Balloons, balloons, and more balloons! Imagine each morning as dawn breaks over the beautiful Sandia Mountains; the skies are filled with bright colors as 600 majestic hot-air balloons, from all over the world, hover overhead. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is considered the most photographed and largest hot-air balloon festival and is the only location in the world where "the box" effect comes into play. The “box” is wind patterns that can help the pilots navigate the balloons in a box effect. It also allows the balloonists to land back on the launch field or right next to your RV. The dawn patrol lifts off first to observe the weather conditions. Upon approval, the balloons lift off in mass ascension. The “zebras,” dressed in black and white, coordinate the launching of the balloons. With 600 balloons in the air, it is truly a spectacular display of color. One of the most exciting ascensions is the Flight of the Nations mass ascension, where balloonists from each nation proudly wave their nation’s flag. The balloon fiesta will consist of the traditional shapes, but the most popular of the balloon launches are the special-shape balloons, which can be seen in all shapes and sizes. The most popular shapes are the cow, pig, clock, Noah’s Ark, stagecoach, and the sweetest mother, daddy, and baby bumblebees. The bumblebees have hands with velcro; when they touch in the air, it appears they are holding hands. This fiesta also hosts the Gas Balloons - America's Challenge race, which is based on the longest distance traveled. Track their progress on the Fiesta website. At dusk on the launch field, see the burners of the balloons when they are ignited and watch the evening sky fill with a bouquet of bright colors. The night will finish with a remarkable display of fireworks. Escapees will have boondock camping, a private tent for inclement weather, games, catered breakfasts and dinners. For the first time, Escapees will offer three options for the Balloon Fiesta HOP.

  18. South Texas Birding HOP April 13- 18, 2015 HOP Hosts: Steve and Kay Krasovetz #92265 South Texas is rich with piney woods, grasslands, lakes and rivers, making this location a prime area for migrating birds, and making Texas a major migrating corridor in the United States and a magnet for bird watchers. Each spring there are as many migrating birds as there are birders, which makes birding one of Texas’ fastest growing activities and truly a birder’s paradise. In April it reaches a fever pitch with the greatest numbers and variety of migrating birds. Some of the well-known birds that will arrive are Hummingbirds, Warblers, Swallows, Buntings, Cuckoos, Hawks, Orioles, Thrushes, Flycatchers, the Yellow-headed Blackbird, Green Jays, Chachalacas, Caracaras, and Waterfowl, just to name a few. Although birds are the highest-profile migratory species in South Texas, there are also bats, butterflies, dragonflies, and sea turtles migrating. There will be a considerable amount of walking; please bring comfortable walking shoes, binoculars, and a camera for those beautiful pictures of the migrating animals in South Texas. Escapees has secured a private gathering room for dinners, announcements, social hours, and meetings, in case of inclement weather. You will have a wonderful time, and the Escapees have a fun-filled time lined up for you at the South Texas Birding HOP. Come, go with us; we’d love to have you!
