Lake Livingston! Launch Happened 18 May 2013 at 8:00 AM!
Thomas KT5TK and Bill WA5VQH are Ready to LET IT GO! Positive lift is only 30 grams, so this will be a serious "floater" or at least a very slow riser!
THE BALLOON IS AWAY ED! THE BALLOON IS AWAY! Winds were picking up rapidly, so we launched an hour ahead of schedule.
