Boise Idaho: Sunday Time Change

Two O'Clock

 

It’s that time of year again!

The law requires that you set your clocks back one hour at precisely 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

The USTCA (U.S. Time Change Agency) will be patrolling with black helicopters and MRAPs, using infrared detection, to see inside your home and ensure compliance.

It’s probably best that you comply ¬†:roll:

 

 

2014 Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival

Yesterday was an eventful day for me!

After serving as a crew member for the RE/MAX balloon at our annual Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival for the past two years, I finally got my long-promised ride on the balloon yesterday morning.

We arrived at 6:30 a.m (still dark) and learned that the RE/MAX balloon had been chosen to honor two hot air balloon pilots who had passed away since last year’s event.

We took off before sunrise with the sun just starting to peek over the Boise foothills and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd as we lifted off with all of the other balloons lying on the ground in silent tribute to our fallen¬†balloonists.

It was truly an honor to be a part of this memorial ceremony.

Here are a few photos of our incredible hour-long flight from Ann Morrison Park as we floated above the beautiful Boise skyline at sunrise with my good friend and pilot, Darren Kling.
