8/27/11. La Garita Creek, CO - Life here at the Balloon Ranch continues to be great, but itís due for an interruption. Next weekend, Iím heading back to Nebraska to work at the same nuclear plant as last spring. No, Iím not going back to fix all the things I broke. Theyíve been waiting all summer for the flood waters on the Missouri River to recede before they can start back up. I imagine they need people to do maintenance and shovel a lot of mud!
Next April, I plan on hitching up the lads to a refurbished wagon and taking them out for a little one year spin around the west.
In order to improve the quality of my photos and to start taking some motion pictures, I bought a new camera. Sandy and I went for a ride today and I gave it a try (I still havenít mastered the video).
