Passengers: Barb Underwood, Matt Selby

Winds have returned to normal so I call for one of the Brooks sites and the pi-ball (test balloon) confirms that this will work. We get the gear unpacked and the cold pack is started then Cecil adds some heat and I call for the passengers. I will take Beth’s daughter, Mackenzie along for a crew payout ride. We are off the tarmac and drift slowly to the south for a bit as the passengers get use to the “magic” of what we do. The gang catches up with us in the bottoms as we will stay down here for the rest of the flight. We cross over Clear Lake and are into Zielinski Farms and the gang move to a clean field for our landing spot today. Once over the sprinkler I se the shot and we are down and do the pack and bag the balloon for the trip back to the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

Barb: “Holy Cow! We had a great time. First balloon ride and will certainly do it again! Jim and his crew were wonderful…God Bless you.”
Matt: “My grandma and I had a great time! We’ve been planning a balloon trip for 14 years and now Jim and his crew made our first experience a great one.”

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