"Invite them to the hotel, drag out the Margarita machine(s), board games, puzzles whatever and see what happens. Oh wait; can't invite the whole crowd so scratch that one! (GRIN) So I will step back into the shaddows and see what others have to…"
Saw my first balloon in the early 70's and it has been a love affair ever since. Marriage, raising kids etc interupted it for awhile but both are now gone so I have been "back in the saddle" pretty heavy for the past 5 years or more. I crew, score and recently took ground school. MAYBE some day I will be PIC.
Welcome to the site. It is a fun way to pass some time, looking at all the pictures and talking with everyone. You are correct about the weekend. I never planned to or would fly in those conditions. In fact, the only reason I chose to stand the balloon up was for the hometown crowd that had been waiting all weekend to see balloons. If it was a different event I would not have even done that. Talk to you later, and enjoy this site.
Hey Megan!! I really enjoyed crewing with you in Battle Creek! I am looking forward to doing it again soon. Dan (my regular pilot that I crew for) flew last night so that's 6 in 3 days for me. Tonight it is SLEEP!!!!!!! Take care of that spautula and let me know what oyur niece's reaction was to you bringing my date home to her (Tony the Tiger)
Well actually it was last June, so I was of age, lol, and it was real. Also aged 5 years. I got it my first year with Paul Quandee at the Elkhart 4-H Fair, I waited 5 years only to have all but a small glass dumped on me..... Yeah it was worth it... Lol!
Good eye ! Roadie is an Aussie, and the color is officially blue merle with both eyes blue. He is in the ALPO web video. www.alpo.com (promotions , airlift crew ) He loves to fly and be in control on the ground. Thanks for asking, Carl
