• Sure would I like to fly~I was a door gunner in the service! Heights don't scare one bit. Dec. 14
    • Ice man
      Heights don't scare me either, but my hat is off to you sir and I'm (Educated guess) going to guess you flew in a "Huey". That would have been a thrill and a half for me. In as much as I've flown in Sikorsky's - it just ain't the same. I was Navy. : )
  • Where I use to live we would see them regularly and I'm sorry I didn't pursue going for a ride then. The only time I've seen them in recent years is when I've been trucking out west, early in the morning.
  • I'd like to, but I've never been. Another thing for the bucket list.
    • Ice man
      Yes, exactly, once again thank you Bill. : )
  • I'd love it! Especially if I could catch a sunrise or Sunset up there
    • Ice man
      Sunrise maybe, but I wouldn't want to be up there after sunset.
    • Linda Joy
      Not much after. It might not be safe
  • 7-2-2017 When I was younger I felt like that was less excitement than I could stand. Now I don't have the patience.
    • Ice man
      They won't let you on if you don't.
  • Hell yes! Done it twice. It's just so expensive I have trouble finding others to go with
    • Ice man
      Cool, about the ride that is. How much did it cost you ?
    • AskingForaFriend
      The first time was around $200, and the second time was around $250 per person. That was 10 and 5 years ago. Both times was a shared ride with other people besides me +1
    • Ice man
      Thanks. I guess it's one of those things you have to do at least once in your life.
  • I have not yet, but it is on my bucket list!
    • Ice man
      Me too, but now I'm not sure I can afford it.
  • no thanks, ive heard of people getting hurt in them
  • Can I bring Linda with me ? How easy is it to accidentally push someone over the side ? Just askin'.
    • Ice man
      Sure why not. How easy is it to tip a canoe ? Just sayin' ..
    • Lilo Avli
      Depends on the length of the shaft and the thickness of the paddle, I imagine.
    • Ice man
      That's what Linda said too.
    • Lilo Avli
      Her memory ain't that good. The last time was during her tour in Vietnam, back in 1985.
    • Ice man
      It might have something to do with all that agent orange guy she was seeing back then.
  • I've never been attracted by the idea. My mother took one for her 75th birthday, though. She'd had the yen for several years, and my brother gave it to her as a present.
  • I totally would. I need to add it to my bucket list LOL
  • Hell no! That would tick both acrophobia and agoraphobia check-boxes.
  • I never have. I'd go. I am certain a hot air balloon ride will be a romance, going over the countryside.
  • I don't believe I would ever go for a hot air balloon ride. Terrified of heights.
  • I have never been up in a hot air balloon. I would want to check the maintenance log books before I went as I know of one very important AD concerning the out flow valve in the top of the balloon requiring inspection every few hours.
  • Been on a few hot air ballons. Its a great view its not scary you don't think its going to crash at least when the wind is light.
