Beginning to unload the basket.
Setting up the support beams. The only thing connecting the balloon to the basket are very thin steel rods.
Looking through to the inside of the our balloon.
Me and my coworker, Wil, holding the balloon open so the industrial strength fan can fill it with air.

I like this shot. The white house down the main road is where we live now. And the kind of mushroom shaped one is where we used to live.
Listening to the pilot explain the history of hot air balloons. Everyone kneeling was previously a hot air balloon virgin. (I don't know the guy to my right, but on the other side is Wil, his 3 year old son and his wife.)
