Would You Do It?

 Ride in a hot air balloon?

I won't, the idea of it scares the heck out of me.

But then, when I fly, I dress for the crash. LOL

The town I live in is known for hot air balloons, we have an annual launch weekend so we see a BUNCH of them all through the spring and summer...they are beautiful, and I understand the view is tremendous, but NO WAY.

What about you?

 I admire you, or should I say look up to you? Get it? Get my stupid joke?

:D

Just the idea of being up there makes my blood pressure go up. Not sure how I got this way, I think it was the kids.

I would love to, but it's expensive.

I have had a craft booth at the New Jersey Festival of Ballooning, a huge event that happens the end of July each year here.  I was there for the morning balloon launches (spectacular) and the evening launches (beautiful but not like the morning ones), plus the specialty balloons and the balloon glow.  I have some pics, I will see if I can scan them in and post them.
