Balloon festival in NY
« on: September 14, 2013, 11:12:41 am »
For those of you that might be in the Lake George, NY area this coming weekend, there is a large balloon festival.  We plan on going up there to it with some friends of ours (the Parsleys).

We will be staying at :  http://www.kingphillipscampground.com/?gclid=CJjukfKfy7kCFQ3NOgodGAMA8w
The festival info is at:  http://www.adirondackballoonfest.org/

My understanding is that all the dry camping spots at the airport are taken.

We went to this festival back in the late 1990s and had a great time. When our friends said they where going because it was on her mothers bucket list to ride in a hot air balloon, we jumped on going again. We will be lunching on a boat on Thursday. Upper crust types. heehee.

Sounds like alot of fun!  That's my neck of the woods. Originally from Connecticut, I spent many a day/night camping in the Adirondacks (Long Lake, Forked Lake). Can't wait to get back there, and we are envious!  Are you really going up in a balloon though??

Not me. I can't stand to leave the ground.  My friend Jane's (mid 60s years old) mother (age unknown, maybe in 90s) wants to go up. I think she is crazy. (WH)

Aww, Tom, You only live once. I'd do it in a heartbeat... and I'm afraid of heights.
