Up, up, and away…

Went for a balloon ride this evening with a friend, courtesy of Becky Petrehn with Balloon AD-Ventures.  We took off from the Jo Co Executive airport at 151st & Pflumm.  Once aloft there was very little breeze so we moved pretty slowly to the ESE.  Maximum height was about 2300 feet, I think.  We came down very gently about an hour later near 159th & Metcalf – only 5 miles away.

The flight was an interesting experience – something everyone should try at least once.
