A 'crashed' balloon being hauled through an ocean of Airstreams at this year's balloon fiesta in Albuquerque. Note that Darth also crashed (in the background). First day was rough for the ballooners...

Balloon pilots like to think they "land" their balloons, although it may seem more like a "crash" when one lands on your Airstream.

If this was in a Vintage Airstream area then it fits right in. That is one of the very early Raven hot air balloons. The tanks were used as seats. Long before wicker became the preferred type of basket material because it had some flex on landing. 70's era of Raven balloons.

Tin Crumpet might not understand the term "bogart" so I will answer for her. That is Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park on the north of the Olympic Peninsula. I know this because I took them to the lake.

It is not letting me attach photos. I don't know what is wrong.

Terrible accident here years ago at the Hazelmere RV Park (which is the home of many full-timers.) Don't believe it took out any Airstreams, but there was loss of life, serious injury, and a few incinerated RVs.

Your right Dan..I didn't
I Read in a flash..so perhaps needed further clarification
of the true meaning of Bogart.. Ive heard of Humphrey but
had no idea of the connection.. The meaning was described as
"keeping a joint in the mouth" ..and I even wondered "joint" being
you know...errr..druggy type things..coz thats what we call
naughty smokes over here..and deduced the drug effect could conjure up hallucinations of surreal views.... then.. I assumed the nice lady suggested we were insensitively smoking at the location and should not be ..we weren't but it doesn't matter anyway as it didn't mean that after all..The penny finally dropped..Humphrey did not share his fags or cigars whichever he drew on...so.. from that I conclude she means we were keeping the spot to ourselves ...ha ...funny...I wasted so much time up the wrong alley ....

For the likes of us ..Dan guided us to another world unlike earth..certainly unlike England....i'm wanting to peep again in the summer times when I imagine happy people paddling about..lounging on deck chairs and having a jolly good time

I have some degree of expertise in this area. You have to be old enough for the happy hippy days of the 60s and Humphrey Bogart reruns to understand, You will recall Boggie often had a cigarette dangling from his lips. "Bogarting the Joint" was not passing it around to your friends in a group setting. Country Joe and the Fish did a song of the same title with the line "Don't Bogart that joint my friend, pass it over to me".

It was exhilarating. Bears everywhere, one came within 20' of us. In this setting they are used to seeing small groups of people (6 of us) and don't feel threatened.
