Freeway balloning

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by nil_orally, Mar 21, 2006.

  1. Riding to work out of the city this morning, I saw 6 ballons at low altltude above the Eastern Freeway near Hoddle St. A really beautiful sight in the pre-dawn light.

    Two were particulary interesting. The first was the one shaped like a F1 vehicle. The second was the one slowly descending while the others were just hanging there. When I went past, the basket was drifting slowly between the top of the lighting poles, and the guy on the burner was clearly visible looking down then up and pulling on the burner control as hard as he could. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

  2. Somehow, just somehow if the balloon landed on the freeway I'm sure some car driver would hit it and still use the excuse 'oh my god, I didn't see you!'.
  3. You sure it wasnt the look of fear in the guy`s eyes as he was yanking on the burner cord,being so low :grin:
