Passengers: Dave & Pam Allen, Carinna Stanton, Joshua Seech

Again we are at the Brooks site with two couples, a birthday surprise for Pam and… a 4th try (weathered out) for Carinna & Joshua. We get the balloon out and pumped full of cold air, then I take passengers inside to take a look as the boys keep the throat open. We load up and get off the tarmac heading to the south toward the pond at Knife River. I decide that this “group” needs to get there feet WET so I set up a S&D in the pond. I kind of “snuck” up on the dip and some passengers loved it and others were caught by surprise…. Oh well…this is what I DO!! After the dip we head south toward Keizer. The gang has guessed (correctly) that I have a shot for that parking lot at the “Crater” and when I set the shot we get shoved to the east a bit. The next good LZ is at the School so the gang moves there for the second shot. As we approach the school the gang sees that we are heading for the practice base ball field so they move there for the shot. We slip past the trees and the gang is there to catch us as we drop into the field. We get the balloon deflated, the bag is sat upon and we head back for the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

Dave & Pam: “Thanks Jim for a wonderful Birthday surprise, the best ever!
Carinna: “Thank you so much for letting me experience this balloon ride. It was amazing! Love you & Shirley.”

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