Quick Balloon Update

I’ll have a more complete writeup later when I can slow down and wrap my head around things, but for the moment here’s a quick update. Our first balloon lost tracking about about 20k feet. Not to be deterred, we quickly put together a second balloon from spare parts and sent it up. It landed a few hours later in Rocky Mount and we spent 4 hours getting it out of the tree where it landed about 65 feet off the ground! Once we did, it turned out to be well worth it as we found some great pictures!

Also, we ended up on the front page of the News and Observer today! Here’s the article.
