FC: Our Hot Air Balloon Ride April 18, 2009 Lancaster, Pa. Celebrating 25 years of marriage

1: We were instructed to arrive at 6:00. We thought we would just walk into the balloon's basket but this is how we found our balloon. Boy were we wrong!

2: The basket was on its side. All eight of us were told we would lie on the ground and scoot into the basket. | There would be four in the top section and four in the bottom. We would have eight passengers and the "pilot", Dar.

3: Finally we are all loaded in. Now we hope for the propane tanks and the fans to get the balloon inflated as soon as possible.

4: We are almost there...

5: Airborne!

7: We floated above the treetrops then rose up to about 1000 feet. We glided for about one hour.

8: Taken by our new "very close" balloon riding friends.

9: As we started to land, Dar asked a Menonite farmer if we could bring it down in his field. Everyone came running to see us.

10: The landing was slightly bumpy. Now it's time to deflate the balloon. | With a long rope and the help of many people on the ground, it collapsed in no time.

11: The children of the farmers loved helping pack the balloon into the truck. .

12: The ride is over | and the sun sets.

13: cheese & crackers... | the balloonist's prayer... | Life is good.... | Champagne toast...
