25th Annual Spiediefest in Binghamton, NY

Saturday morning was foggy. I would have posted more photos, but mostly it was balloons leaving the field and disappearing into the fog. So, there isn't much to see except for a cloud with nothing in it.




Roy Caton takes off in the United Van Lines Balloon. He is such a trooper!





Barry takes off...




Barry attempts a landing. Not the nicest of landing spots. But, he was caught in a miniature box that didn't leave much for areas to land. One man on a mountain bike to the rescue to take the drop line to the ground. 


My favorite photo of the weekend. Lone man brings balloon through Caterpillars and posts to a safe landing. Sorry to the people that couldn't go down the road while we were packing up!

Saturday night. Gorgeous day, squirrely winds at take off time. We had intended to fly, but the field was closed at 7:30 and we had to let other balloons take off where we were laid out. We stayed on the field and tethered for a time.

Look back at our other Binghamton archives, you will see this young gentleman in every year as dedicated crew. Now he is taller than Barry. Cody, we love you!


So much going on here, so little space...


Creepy or cute? You decide.


Phil giving the thumbs-up to the crown line people to let them know Barry is going hot.




I probably shouldn't have been here for this shot.
