Passengers: Florence Woodcock, Jan Rosenthal, Hailey and Heidi Leslie

Day three and we are still at our west launch site with the winds on the surface being nonexistent. The “gang” gets to work on the balloon as the sun creeps up over Mt. Hood, again it is on fire. Starship comes awake with the cold air being pumped in, then some heat and we are ready for the passengers to joins us. We have a similar track today, off the lot then across Wallace and slowly toward the river. A visit to the condos and then into North Salem. We cross over the “new” office building at or gang members (EriK) Church and I spot a neat little “theater” they have added. I’m looking for a LZ and down wind I spot North High’s baseball field and have the gang move in for the catch. Mother Nature is friendly and gives me just enough steerage so we drift right into third base for the catch and OUT! We start the deflate and get the balloon ready for the bag. The sit is done with style and we load up for the trip back and the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

Heidi: “Had such a blast. Great experience and so much fun!”
Hailey: “I had such a great time! Thank you so much.”
Florence: “This was a wonderful experience, beautiful day and gorgeous balloon.”
Jan: “Thank you for the wonderful experience, it was magic.”

A BIG thank you to today’s Crew (I can’t get in the air or back on the ground without’um)
