This was one of my all-time favorite adventures! From seeing first-hand how the balloon is set up, to bringing it down and helping pack it away, it was genuinely perfect!
A storm off the East Coast affected the wind as far in as Charlottesville so our May morning flight with Rick Behr of Boars’ Head Ballooning was cancelled the night before our scheduled flight. Rick offered to reschedule for the day after in hopes that the wind might calm. We said yes! Cancelled again. After that, we had only one more day in Charlottesville but no opportunity for a third try as Rick was completely booked for that day. Didn’t look like we were going to get our balloon ride. Then Rick offered to check with another balloon pilot in the area; a competitor or Rick’s. Our last day in Charlottesville proved to be perfect weather for hot air ballooning so off Rich and his balloon-basket full of students went, soaring skyward towards beautiful puffs of clouds. We watched them ascend from the perch of our own already airborne balloon. Thank you Rick for making it happen!
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.
