They drift, while I watch with envy. Most times I pilot, but today I lead the chase team, earthbound. Owning the business, I have a job I love. Then there are these days.

Two ground crew personnel called in sick. Airborne, the expedition holds its own excitement. With paying customers, the events, food, and photos at the landing site are more important than the ride.  When the balloons reconnect with the earth, the focus becomes extending the experience, helping them re-live their adventure and develop the stories they will tell their friends.

Still, I wish I was among the clouds.


Keep on writing.

  1. I love the detailed thought process of the pilot – I’m sure most pilots, particularly hot air balloon pilots, do it because they live it 🖤 Thank you for joining us again this week 🖤
