Everyone is out of town for July 4th, but we managed to find enough crew to be the only balloon.

Took off SE across the airport, dropping into the cross runway. It didn't take much above tree tops to move at 5-7mph. We did get to drop into Flagg Hill Pond before continuing across Stow center to play around on the back side of the cemetery SE of RT 117 and RT 62.

Found Crow Island on the river, then spotted Collings Foundation in our flight line so we headed there. Came down a little early and turned left across the house into the parking field, part of which was being watered. Decided to walk the balloon beyond the original museum building to drier grass for deflation. There is a new museum beyond to original, on the flat ground to the left. The new access road also departs in that area.
