Happy Birthday!

Where can you do this around here?

I know you can go on helicopter rides at No County Airport, but I have never seen balloons around here before.

I have at least 20 hours in hot air balloons.... you'll love it. We used to do "splash & dashes" while flying over ponds...we'd come down, touch the water and ascend again. We'd do the same thing to treetops and railroad tracks. Cool stuff.

Railroad tracks??? Dude... That's like asking for an epic fail.

One of the things on my to do list is to skydive from a hot air balloon, I've jumped from planes and hellicopters but no balloons or base. :cool: YET:evil:
Happy B-Day

...it's a lot of fun with high-tension transmission lines, too...

It's awesome. The dead-quiet completely still air upon exit of the gondola, and falling away in pure, quiet peace is an experience worth having. Go for it! :cool:
