Today we have some west winds so I call for the church site on the west side. We get the balloon out and start the preparations for the pumpof the balloon up. Soon it’s full of cold air and it’s time to add the heat. I call for the passengers to join me and Luke has a special “surprise” a bit later for Bekah. They are in the NW on vacation and he plans to “pop” the question today in the air. We are off the parking lot and the adventure has begun. They settle in for the flight then Luke decides it’s time to go to work and get ur’ done She said yes and he gets the ring on and the “yahoo” kiss is done. We proceed on the flight and are into central Salem heading to the east at an easy pace. I spot the landing spot for today the State Hospital and one of there parking lots. The gang is there as I clear the trees and they make the catch. We deflatethe balloon and get it tagged up and in the bag. Congratulations to you two and may your journey that you started with us today be very successful.
A BIG thank you to today’s Crew (I can’t get in the air or back on the ground without’um) Cecil, Richard and JR
