Map of the flight


Finally, after a long dry (er... wet) spell, we got the new envelope out for its maiden flight.

The weekend forecast kept changing all week, with enough rain early in the week to cause flooding in New England. The sun finally came out for the end of the week and we ended up with calm winds and partly sunny sky for Saturday morning.

The launch site has a small problem with soggy grass. Seems the leach field below has some problems. We had to inflate on the parking lot. Good thing we have a tarp to help protect the new balloon.

Lifted off about 10 min after Rudy's balloon and followed them north, eventually finding a nice cul-de-sac off RT27, north of RT2A.
