THE CHASE IS ON FOR BLT-45!
KEEP CALM AND FLOAT ON!
Why do balloons pick the strangest places to crash? This place looks SERIOUS!
Are you feeling RISKY Dude? Barbed Wire to the left of them...!
Over the River and...
Through the Woods!...
And of course, the payloads were in a tree, temporarily out of reach...
Andrew KE5GDB, Landon N5AET and Andy W5ACM were part of the chase and recovery team this time!
Mike WA5TWT talked dogs with the land owner and Bill WA5VQH did camera duty.
Back at the entry gate, John AB5SS coordinated with Doug WB5TKI and Jimmy W5ZTX.
About a 30-mile direct-line hike, but a bit more by roads!
We were There on August 20?!?
