Hot Air Balloon Ride With Skydiver

  • Rise up with the sun, gently wafting thousands of feet above the waking earth. The burners roar at liftoff, but soon you're overcome by the silence and tranquility of drifting with the wind. The San Bernardino Mountains rise out of the mist (hopefully) to the north, and the Moreno Valley stretches below. But set your shutter speed to 1/300 because some crazy fool is about to jump out.

    Our hot air balloon holds 10 passengers, including the skydiver(s). Liftoff is
    at the ungodly hour of 5:15 AM to catch the still of dawn so we'll be departing San Clemente at 4:00 AM. My van holds 7 and you can all sleep on the way there. Cost is $120/person with surcharges for folks over 220 lbs. Make your check out to Dan Horst Pilot Services, our licensed balloon pilot, but mail it to me at:
    Peter Shikli
    P.O. Box 4393
    San Clemente, CA 92674
    Be sure to do that within 1 week of your RSVP.

    Yes, this will be an adventure!

    Bummed to have to cancel. Time-wise won't work for me that weekend. I do hope this experience might be offered again.

    Excited to knock this off my bucket list. Used to be a glider pilot eons ago before having kids grounded me. Looking forward to the adventure!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
