Today we are again in the west site as the winds have shifted around and we will go north today. We have a low ceiling as we get to work on the balloon. We get the balloon up and the passengers loaded in and are off the lot on our way to the north at a easy pace. We head into farm country after clearing a few houses close to Wallace. We get into some tree hopping so I can collect a leaf or two for Cecil. We get a bit of a hook to the east so we cut across the grass field and head for the river. Once over the river I drop down and we find some “lookie loos” on the beach and I decide to try a shot at a “dip” on the river. We are on the tree line so it is time to climb out and pop over the trees into Keizer. The drift carries me toward a good LZ (landing zone) at Cummings School but get shoved off to the east so I will look for another. I have the “gang” move over to Orville’s store as it looks like a possible next shot. The boys are there and the line is dropper as the post us to the open end of the lot. We get the deflate started and then it is “sit” time.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

Roger: “Great flight, the sixth one with you for me!”
Heather: “Excellent – first time and very impressive.”
Nichole: “Wahoo! It was amazing! Can’t wait to go again.”

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