Ballooning Information
Allright, we're the first to admit it -- we're almost fanatical about this ballooning (and safety). In fact, we've been called "Balloonatics" more times than we can count. But the good news is that, as Balloonatics, we can tell you just about anything you want to know about ballooning. Just click on any link below to get more information, or to find other Web sites that have hot air ballooning information.

Joining the Chase

Are you one of the wonderful souls who sees us in the air and can't resist following along? Bless you. Thank you. You make it so much more fun. Ballooning is a terrific personal experience by itself, but when you join us as we land, it becomes a social event as well... Feel free to just watch, but be aware also that most balloonists (there are exceptions to every rule) are thrilled to see you for another reason: landing a balloon and packing it up are chores in the "more the merrier" category. Like an old fashioned barn raising- it's a lot of WORK (and a lot of fun)! Everyone is needed, everyone contributes, and everyone has fun. If conditions are right, sometimes we can "tether" the balloon (fly to a controlled height with ropes attached to vehicles or people on the ground) and give rides to all the helpers. If you see us, please join us!

Balloonists Prayers

The Winds have Welcomed you with softness.
The Sun has blessed you with his warm hands.
You have flown so high and so well,
that God has joined you in your laughter,
And He has set you gently back again
into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

The author of the Balloonist's Prayer is unknown, but it is believed to have been adapted from an old Irish sailors' prayer from long ago. This prayer is commonly used as a toast after balloon flights.
