I am in, hopefully for both jumps. I have a small scheduling problem though. I need to be on the first load if I am going to do this. I am trying to get out of town and need to get on the road ASAP. I'm not trying to cut in line or anything like that, but I would love to jump... it's just a scheduling thing. If that can be worked out I am DEFINITELY there! Let me know.

"Big M" (Movement?): I'm jumping with you on that first load, so bring your "B" helmet.

ReLLiK: I am pretty certain it is a go for landing Barton; just waiting for the e-mail return from Garr/Install CDR to guarantee it. On your list, count me for two jumps, at least.

If "B" helmet means my Bonehead Flat Top Pro... well, the batteries are charged and the flash card is empty! Be sure and smile REALLY big!!!

Alright...This is the list. We're going to have 2 balloons. 4 jumpers per balloon. $100 gets you a 10k jump and a 5k jump. We'll need to meet at 6:30 am on Dec 3rd. We'll check the winds and figure out the launch point. I will send out specifics of exactly where we'll meet in Augusta a few days before.

The balloons will launch together but will most likely separate on the way to altitude. The balloons will have chase crews and will have radio contact. Once we get to altitude and find a place where we want to land, we're free to leave the basket. We can use the chase crew to verify the landing area. When we get down, we need to do quick pack job. We'll hop in the chase vehicle and go to meet the balloon. The goal is the have packtime+travel time=baloon decent time. Then it's back in the basket and back up for the half altitude jump.

Should be a damn good time! And if the weather is anything like the past few weekends, it's going to be beautiful.

Lauraliscious...just need you to verify that you're definitely in for 2 jumps.

Sorry for the delayed response, but like I said in my last post I'm still in for both jumps. :)

Thanks for putting this together...I'm excited! I guess I'll owe :D too, it'll be my 1st time jumping a balloon.

What do you vidiots need to be able to copy footage on site? Laptop computer? Since this is my first balloon jump too (I know...beer!) I definitely want to take advantage of you guys with cameras strapped to your head and get the footage of this event.

Also...I'm surprised that I've got no takers yet on my offer of a place to crash the night before! We can have a little pre-jump party and then all pass out! :ph34r:

No video camera, but I do have a laptop which I can bring.

Now some important stuff:

I've received payment from 4 people. That means three of you still need to send money by this Monday. I've actually got a waiting list for this, so if I haven't recieved money for the remaining three slots by Monday night, I'll open the slots to those waiting on the standby list.

Bottom line is if you really want to do this, send in your money ASAP :)
I'm pretty surprised I ended up with a waiting list which means that if these balloon jumps work out and everyone has a good time, maybe next time around I can grow this a bit.

BTW, I still have three rooms avail if anyone wants to drive to Augusta on Friday and crash instead of getting up early Saturday morning.
