No thanks, not for me.
Sometimes it bothers me that I am fearful of certain “adventure” activities, but mostly I am okay with it, especially when I see stories like this one:
The caption to the photo reads:
A hot air balloon on fire is pictured north of Richmond, Virginia, May 9, 2014, in this handout photo courtesy of Lynn Shultz. At least one person died and two were missing after the hot air balloon hit a power line and caught fire over Virginia during a festival, police said on Saturday. Authorities said they had found the remains of one person, and were continuing to search for the others missing after the Friday evening accident 30 miles north of Richmond. <link>
I am sure there are some impressive statistics about the safety of these crafts, but I have always been uncomfortable with the idea of dangling from a balloon in a little basket.
