I got my Ballooning Magazine today... the editor's column posed a question that I want to ask all of you... Who (or what) inspired your love of flying?
As for me, I'd have to say that I really do think I was born with this need to be above the world flying (go figure with a name like mine!) I remember my very first flight of any kind... I was 18 or 19 months old and my parents took me and my very new to the world little brother on a plane ride to visit relatives in…
In March I was lucky enough to attend a safety seminar that had a presenter who's entire segment revolved around the idea that back in the day we (the balloon community) used to talk about flights we had.

I have been flying special shape balloons since 1989. My love for shapes has made it such that I am always looking at items thinking how cool they would look flying overhead.

The Little Bees were my first and second and the Eagle my third owned shapes. Prior to that I had flown the Famous Footwear shoes,… Continue
