I started ballooning in 1989 when I crewed for the first time. I received my private pilot cert. in 1996 and my comm pilot cert. in 1998. My goal is to fly in every state of the union then retire. It might take awhile! Last year, I flew in Japan (one flight) which was way cool. The best part of ballooning for me is all my friends that I have all over the world!
damnit. I want first class...I am crewing for Nick. We are flying out Sunday as well at 10:45. We should all get there close to the same time. I'm sure we will run into each other somewhere at the hotel. See you next week.
