Today again out in the Brooks area and we have a PRIVATE flight today for the Manning’s that was purchased by there daughter. We are short on boots so Ron jumps in to give us a hand…Thanks! We get the balloon out, pumped up and ready for the passengers to join me. We are off the field and drift to the south toward the Powerland. The passenger start to settle in as we cross I-5 to the east. I stay low to take off some speed for a bit then we cross I-5 again and I have the gang move to the ball field parking lot for the first shot at an LZ this morning. I set the shot, the gang makes the catch and we are on the lot. We get the balloondeflated, tagged up and the passengers do the “sit” for us.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.
