Me, I wouldn't try anything like this. The thought would make me pee my pants. Lawn-chair balloonist drifts from Oregon to Idaho. # Kent Couch in third bid to fly from central Oregon to Idaho by lawn chair Gas station owner travels at 20 mph; each balloon gives 4 pounds of lift Couch pops balloons to control height with a BB gun, steel dart blow gun Wife says: "It's never been a dull moment since I married him Would you ever pull a stunt like this? Do you know anyone who would? http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/07/05/lawnchair.balloons.ap/index.html

That is nuts! What if he popped too many balloons because his aim was off? Aye Que Caramba! Well, at least he got his story covered by CNN.

That is not something that I would want to try. I don't think I know anyone who would be willing to try it either.

That is absolutely crazy as you said and in no way would I try it. Knowing my luck all the ballons would pop and I would die. He is surely brave indeed.

Let's just say I wouldn't want to be up there and have a bird with a sharp beak land on my balloons? LOL! Why do people insist on tkaing such DUMB risks?
