KennyShumate! He is the crazy guy that got us into this ballooning thing! We went for our first flight in 2000, And that was that, we were hooked! We crewed for him when he came to town for the Wellsville Balloon Rally every year. We bought our first balloon in 2005, followed by our second in 2006. My husband is a commercial pilot, and I am a student. We are very good friends with Scott and Tony Saxton who have been very instrumental in my training this year.
