Passengers: Tami and Robyn Braun

Today it is another Birthday flight, it is Robyn’s day and this couple has traveled up from Big Bear CA to fly with us, thanks! I call for our site in Keizer as the winds are forecast as light and variable. We get the balloon out and filled, then the passengers get on board and we are off the ground. It is off the park and we drift off to the south over Keizer. The sun pops up and we have light winds that move us all over the map. I drop down for a winds check at tree top and get a hook that sends us to the east. I set up for a track to Weddle School then realize that school is in session and that will not as my first choice today. Over the Parkway is an open field next to the Kroc Center that was owned by a “balloon friendly” family, the Staats. I’m almost sure they have sold it but I will use it today even though it is now gated up. I set up for the shot as the gang move in and we park on the field and wait for the “boots” to get us out. There is a brand new road into this area and the gang tow us there for the deflate and pack up. It is closer to the road and will make the haul out a bit easier. We get the balloon in the bag and head out to City Hall for the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

PASSENGER COMMENTS:
