    Did you happen to get any pics of the goodyear warehouse in York?
    There is nothing left of it. It burnt down to the ground some time ago. They said it was from poor electrical wiring.


    joossa,
    The trip was around an hour long.


    Hydrotropism,
    Landings = controlled crash. LOL


    I knew I posted pics from a balloon festival some time ago. I dug up the post, back in 2005. LOL

    I think it would be really neat to launch with a bunch of other balloons like the festival pics.
    The fourth picture, top right hand corner was the balloon we where in.

    The company is Windjammer Balloons. He is the gentleman that sets up the festivals here in York.

    That's impossible because I wired it.

    I remember you telling me that. That's why I said it.

    LOL, I knew I must have told you since you said that, because I have never had anything burn down. I had a big explosion in a walmart once, but it didn't burn down.

    Great photos!

    I went on a hot air ballon ride at Jackson Hole, Wyoming with a friend of mine. We were only about 500 feet up when she spotted a red fox running through a field. He was running like crazy trying to get away from the big bird in the sky. With the Grand Teton Mountains as a backdrop, it was spectacular.
    After we landed, the pilot set up a traditional Champagne and cheese snack while the "tenders" packed up the balloon.
    I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Wow...that is awsome. I don't know if I could do that though. I'm not keen on heights but it kinda depends on the situation.

    Great photos!!

    Thanks for the comment.

    Lauderdale,
    When we came in for our landing, we scared a bunch of deer out. They did not know which way to go. LOL
    It is customary to have the Champagne and cheese snack afterwards.

    Does that mean that you did electrical work there? Only a matter of time.
