  4. Peter so not a figment of your imagination then. What a great day. Not for the farmer though if you made a mess of his field.

  9. What a fantastic flight - and those views! A nice end too (the champagne I meant... not so much the digging out !) :D)

  10. How exciting, Peter. Wonderful flight and stunning pictures. I envy you for the flight. Due to my back problems I don't have the guts to make a balloon flight. I certainly would have enjoyed it. Greetings, Joke

  11. One of the things I'd like to try some day.

    My father in law did one several years ago...they landed in quite a breeze.. hit a creek, got dumped right out of the basket and everybody got bruised ...but, nobody was badly hurt... the champagne at the end may have helped.... but, he wasn't totally impressed with the end of a pretty amazing flight....
