Passengers: Walt & Verna Goll, Carol Coley, Ron Boucher

I call for the Brookssite this AM as the winds are very light and out of the east and the pi-ball (test balloon) confirms it’s a good selection. We get the balloon out and pump in the cold air, when Starship is full we add the heat and it’s standing tall I call for the passengers to come on board. We are off to the east as the pi-ball tracked and we may cross the river too. We have very light winds at all altitudes and I maybe able to keep us on this side of the river. I hear a buzz off to the north and we have an ultra-lite coming to say hello. We are at the end of the hour and I spot a nice harvested grass seed field that will be our LZ today. I clear the tree line on the edge and we are down on the field. We get the balloon ready for the bag head back for the picnic.
I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

Carol: “Had A great flight with Jim and the crew! Beautiful day and such an enjoyable flight.”
Ron: “This is a great event, no fear, no problems and very relaxing. Thank you!”
Walt & Verna: “One more thing we can cross off our bucket list and it was AWESOME! Thanks for a wonderful, fun flight and loved your stories too.”

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