Today is the day that the balloon will be shipped to Frankfurt, Germany. Our Pilot, Jon and all the crew and support staff have been preparing for this day. The crate will reunite with us in Frankfurt where we will meet Alfred and Renata who have been wonderful balloon friends over the past several festivals. We utilize their basket, tanks, burners, fan and great trailer. Then we are off for the long drive to Chateau d' Oex. We will all be ready for a good nights sleep after an all night flight and 7 hour drive.
