Passengers: Wes & Paula Holt, Alan & Shannon Elkins

Today is a “double day” as we have two Anniversary’s to celebrate. It is the 25th for Wes & Paula and the 7th for Alan & Shannon. It looks like we all picked a perfect day to play, I picked the airport site after being “fooled” by the weatherman and staying home yesterday. The gang gets the balloon out and hooked up, the air pumped in and then the passengers climb on in. We are off to the south as expected and over the hops for a few minutes then on to thewater at Knife Rivers gravel pit. We move on into the nurseries for a bit then past a friendly farmer whose front lawn we were on a couple of months ago. We are on the down side of the hour and the gang is staged in the Keizer Station area as that is the track so far. I miss the first shot and move to the second shot across Chemawa Road. I slip us over the fence and the gang catch the line and we are on the field with no bump at all. I think that the phone will ring today if the “horn honks” are any indication. We get Starship ready for the bag and head on back to Finney Lake for the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

PASSENGER COMMENTS:
Wes & Paula: “What a wonderful experience! Such an amazing morning, thank you.”
Alan & Shannon: “Thank you for the memories to last a lifetime. We will remember this experience forever.”

A BIG thank you to today’s Crew (I can’t get in the air or back on the ground without’um)
Jan, Tim, Cecil, Al T.
