90th Birthday Ballon Ride, crossed off bucket list!
I had the opportunity to ride in a hot air balloon with my best friend, her brother and their Mom for her 90th Birthday! What a blast! Rick Behr, owner/operator…made sure conditions were perfect, and when we got the call that we could go up we hit the road to Charlottesville! We helped get the balloon ready, climbed in and then lifted like we were floating on a cloud! The beauty and peacefulness of it all was surreal… We landed effortlessly, in fact the birthday girl said, “When we landed it felt like we were just bouncing lightly on a bed!” I will look forward to when I can get back in the air with Rick at Boars Head Inn!!!!
Best adventures of our lives
Rick Behr of Boar’s Head ballooning took me and my two kids up and over Charlottesville on what turned out to be one of the best adventures of our lives. The kids absolutely loved seeing the sights from a bird’s eye view. I’m a little scared of heights, so was a little worried, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out the flight is so smooth and serene, it turns out not to be scary at all. Rick was amazing with the kids and kept them engaged, while skillfully manning the balloon. He has so much experience and is very attuned to safety which was incredibly important to me since I was taking my kids. It was one of the main reasons I chose Boars Head ballooning. The champagne toast and gorgeous pictures from our photographer/chaser were just icing on an already delicious cake.
Amazing and Inspiring!
My parents’ friends bought me and my husband of two days a ballooning trip as a spirited and symbolic send-off following our wedding. And what a send-off it was! Beautiful, inspiring, super fun, and exciting, we saw my hometown from a vantage never experienced before. We absolutely loved our experience and our time with Rick. Kind, extremely knowledgable and calm- what more could you ask for from a man taking you a couple thousand feet up! Mille, mille grazie!
