I was disappointed to land, but Id gotten enough out of the ride to be happy.
We touched down and the basket pretty much stopped moving, I think, but the balloon kept going, so we bounced up into the air again a few feet-whee-and then touched down again, and maybe once more before coming to an easy stop. There had been hardly any wind gusts once wed gotten over the initial shaky takeoff.
I see why its so hard to run from a police helicopter. We could usually spot the chase vehicle, since a road was never far away. Most people just stared, but some of them waved and said hello.
We approached several deer and had to scare them away with the burner. We always shouted back, and it was easy to hear each other.
We floated over a lake and could see the reflection of the balloon in it.
The best part about ballooning is being able to see all the stuff thats on the ground so well. One guy looked up from his garden for a bit and waved.How could you most easily find this book in the library? Locate the author card for the book in the card catalog. Locate the title card for the book in the card catalog. Locate the subject card for the book in the card catalog.] D.The sun was out and the weather was absolutely perfect.Behind us we could see the skyscraper apartments of Kent, and further out, especially when we made a short trip to 1000 feet, we could see many buildings in Cleveland, way off on the horizon.We spent most of the time about 100 feet off the ground, except when we had to go over some high tension lines, which we made sure we missed by plenty of room (you cant see the lines, but you can see the towers).They gave us a short talk about landing and taking off and being jolted around.The balloon was filled up part way, but gusts of wind started blowing it around too much so they stopped for fifteen minutes or so and waited before trying again. Dad helped out with the balloon, and Mom and I took pictures. You need to write an essay about hot air ballooning.You know you've seen a good book on this topic, but you can't remember the name of the book or the name of the author.Somehow he knew when to fire the burner before we got too close to the ground. The effects of the burner (us rising up again) wouldnt kick in until almost a half a minute later, and by then we couldve been crashing into some trees or something! Dad waved to two little kids standing in a huge driveway and said to them “thats a lot of cement.” We went over corn and alfalfa fields and could see their relief in lengthening shadows. We were basically traveling by all these people down there on their farms and old country houses (we didnt see any cities or developments), and they would stop and say hi to us. We saw ducks in a pond, beautiful horses, birds flying over a lake below us, small flower beds or gardens like an oasis in a desert of green grass, old barns, tractor patterns in the fields, and countless backyards few people ever see.We went over a couple horse pastures and were careful with the burner not to scare them. One horse started trotting away quickly and then looked back and almost sat down to look up at us, worried, and then grazed for a second and then started nervously trotting some more. The first time I looked down at my watch after we took off, it was .
