though you wouldn’t know it from our heat and humidity the last few days. Sure makes us miss those cool days and nights of a few weeks ago while out West. We’ve been spending time with friends here at home, catching up on all the news and gossip we missed the two months we were gone.. That’s one thing we miss about being on the road. The friends back home.
As the first cool days and nights of Fall come our way, our thoughts turn to our second most favorite thing to do. It’s time for a little hot air ballooning.
We have friends bringing their balloon to town this weekend to help with a fundraiser for a local church. They will be doing tether rides at a local park for a few hours. That’s a lot of hard work for the pilot and crew, but it’s for a great cause.
The middle of October brings The Great Mississippi River Balloon Races. Taking place from the bluffs of Natchez, overlooking the Mississippi river, it is one of the most difficult places to fly a balloon to a target, anywhere.
From there, we’ll be heading up to Arkansas for a little more fun and flying. As the next few weeks unfold, opportunities abound for lots of good food, fun, and fellowship.
Yep, you’ve probably seen it before, but last years shirts pretty much say it all……….jc
