You can immediately tell at your first handshake with Captain Jeff that you're in for a special event. His passion for, well, his passion is evident from the start. We were fortunate to have a small group of just 4 plus Jeff. A quick orientation off to the van and we were in the air within 40 minutes. There were a bunch of other balloons leaving from the same field and it as Iike watching a cattle car load up. The must have been 16-18 people in the gondolas and you have to wonder what sort of experience that was. We loved the personal attention and direct interaction with Capt Jeff. The champagne toast and breakfast afterwards were equally good. What a magnificent experience with a very gifted pilot!!!
