Mr. PeeX2,

Unless there is a monsoon the Gas Bags will fly.

But let's ask our man Ken, he's a heckuva guy.

The important thing is, the Margiball never runs dry.

And this isn't a rhyming poem so I won't even try.

Rhythmically yours,
Wordy Wanda

same boat i'm sure as the rest of my fellow 'streamers...

sifted the clothes down to two racks, and several small containers.

need to travel light for this Gas Fiesta,

robbing ancient indian tombs requires extra closet space...

and need to haul extra ammo for the sunday drink n greet...

i have 14 folks down for the side trip. remember sun screen, a shovel, bucket, wire mesh screen, and a bagged lunch. bring ur own beer, bottled water supplied.

ms wanda,

i have a semi truck w/ a 50 foot trailer from my office follow me around.

it's sooooo much easier that way...

and it's green (the practice, not the truck, it's red)

that way, if you run outa something, my guys just refill it...

i keep an ice maker, dish washer and small power plant in the truck as well.

Thank you.

Hi there Ken.

Any word on what happens if it's raining (hard)?

Can soggy balloons still take off?

I'm heading to New Mexico come heck or high water...

Thanks.

Balloons and rain do not mix. See fun fact #5.

Quote:
Some Fun Facts about Hot Air Balloons....
  1. Balloon pilots need a commercial pilot's license (fixed-wing). They must have at least 35 hours of flight instruction, attend ground school for basic aviation training, pass a written test for hot-air balloons and have a flight check from a Federal Aviation Administration official.
  2. According to the FAA, balloons must meet air-traffic control requirements if they are in a controlled air-space, and pilots must have radio contact with controllers.
  3. There are no official safety requirements for passengers, but passengers should know with whom they're flying and their qualifications.
  4. Accidents are rare, especially in the Northwest. The only serious injuries for the area -- found in a check of National Transportation Safety Board balloon accident reports back to 1984 -- were a broken leg and a broken ankle, both from rough landings.
  5. Hot air balloons don't fly in the rain because balloon heat can cause water to boil atop the balloon, and boiling water destroys the fabric.
  6. Area balloon operators can carry from two to 10 passengers at a time, depending on balloon size.
  7. Children under 5 usually aren't allowed.
  8. Ballooning is not a silent sport. There are some quiet moments, but those burners are noisy.
  9. Balloonists dress like hikers: Pants, sturdy flat shoes and layers of shirt, sweater, jacket, for example. Carry cameras and lots of film.

Ms soggy bottom Bam,
Since Mr Kevbo has graciously allowed me the spot on the beach under the New Mexico state tree near the docks, reataurant(take-out or dine-in), with the prevailing wind favorable to no port-a-potty admingling of air, I am bringing the USS SCREAMING EAGLE, lest you had forgotten this early thread item...there should be room for all...mike
