    Remember the balloon flight ??

    If you remember one of my previous threads, I was due to go on my balloon flight yesterday evening from Rutland Water. Must admit I got the date mixed up and stated I could not make the East Midlands Meet which was today. (Good to see you all). Well after nearly 4years and many cancellations due to bad weather and Go Ballooning going into liquidation, I thought this weekend was going to be positive due to the excellent weather. Rang the weather line as required only to be told it had been cancelled yet again due to bad weather. And the best part? Cancelled flight due to bad weather as there were strong coastal winds - now I've heard of coastal erosion but that's taking the p..s!! Rutland Water must be at least 65 miles from the coast. Now getting very frustrated!

    Funny thing!, I was just driving back home down the A1 this evening and saw a big hot air balloon floating about around the Black Cat roundabout area. Thought to myself "Now that would be a lovely way to spend the evening"!

    Booked a balloon flight 10 years ago. Always cancelled due to weather conditions. Never had the trip. Think they are a rip off.
