We went to the last launch of the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic today. At ‘go’ all the balloons had to inflate, get going, and drop a sandbag on a target about 1/4 of a mile away. It was beautiful – the sun was just coming over the hills (this was EARLY for a day off – we had to be there at 7:15, since that apparently is the time the air currents are going the right direction) and there were probably 35 – 40 balloons going up.
I’d been meaning to go the last couple of years, and we always had something else going on. I am so glad it worked out today!
