Have you ever ridden a hot air balloon?

Yes. It’s overrated.

It’s just a nice, calm trip that’s really, really hot. You just float and, if I recall it was either $330 or $350 (over 2 decades ago). That’s a lot of dough just to float, IMO. It’s just not that thrilling and for that much money, I want something more.

It’s hot and noisy until you start drifting. From that point, it’s kinda boring.

Yeah, I’m happy to have done it to be able to say I’ve done it and know what the experience was like. But, unless I had that much money just laying around to burn... not worth it. EB hit the nail on the head with the “kinda boring” assessment. You can go hang gliding for less money and that’s waaay more worth it, IMO, at least for those who like a bit of a rush like I do. 😁👍🏼

Once when I was very little. It was just a straight up and down trip. My aunt took me. I was so freaked out that my knees were knocking loud enough for them to hear.

Bucket list. Haha, pun intended!
