  • Scott, Just a note to say thank you again for the FANTASTIC balloon ride last Friday!

    It was certainly worth the wait, John and I both enjoyed it!

    Thanks for the pics as well, it is something that we will never forget! We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family!

  • Our balloon ride was everything we had imagined and even more. Thank you so very much!!! We got some great pictures and after we look at them again today we'd love to share with you. When I awoke this morning, our neighbor had sent me a few he'd taken. There's a priceless one of the grandchildren and me...the expressions of awesome joy of their faces when you gave them the "ride" and I look like I have a few tears of happiness. I was saying to the family that a fall color flight would be beautiful. Thanks again for a wonderful ride and experience.

  • I have many good things to say about the balloon ride- it was the best. It was something I waited 15 years to do and it was worth waiting for. I do believe God had a helping hand in it allowing me to take the balloon ride with a very special person to enjoy it as much as I did. I would gladly wait again to have the same experience. I would love to do it again! Thank you again for the wonderful experience- I even made a scrap book out of our hot air balloon flight!

  • Scotty: This really is a "hot date" idea. Nancy and I had a blast. It was so cool to talk to people on the ground flying overhead. Then meeting all those nice people in the sub was way beyond anything we could have expected. Wanna trade jobs!

  • Hey Scott!

    We had the best time last night on/in your balloon. The sights and sounds were way beyond our expecations. I can't believe how many dogs were barking in South Lyon! We'll be back!

    Craig & Cindy
  • Thanks for the wonderful time we had with all of you yesterday. It was our first hot air ballooning experience and we both loved it very much. The whole experience from preparing the balloon for take off, launching it, floating in the beautiful Michigan countryside, watching the other 2 balloons going up and down, landing in the hay field, guiding the balloon towards the church with help of the kids and neighbours, folding the balloon with assistance from the very helpful and excited children and celebrating with champagne, was fantastic. We hope that we can do it again in the future. Bye and thanks again for the wonderful time
