I had the pleasure of being a part of a hot air balloon crew. A very good friend of mine took a liking of hot air balloons and
got his pilots license and then ended up buying a couple of hot air balloons. He had been asking me for years to come flying with
him or to one of the festivals and I finally took him up on his offer.
After this one experience I realized I should have been going all along. It was an awesome experience. It was so great to be a part
of the crew that transports the balloons, sets up the balloons, chases the balloons and breaks them down.
