Oh,wow! I'd forgotten Id commented on this thread ages ago! Shortly after, my new girlfriend made me delete my account to prove to her i was committed...she was crazy self conscious & had numerous mental issues & was hooked on adderall She only just left me & my heart was broken because i really cared about her....but i guess she did me a HUGE favor by leaving me because she would have just dragged me down with her....though i am pissed the she stole two bags of my Q16s that contained at least 40 balloons. but i forgive her! I hope her & her new boyfriend enjoy them! I regret deleting my account...it was for all the wrong reasons...but im so glad to be back amongst all my balloon friends! Everyone here is so wonderful! It feels like i never left!
Wow! That felt GREAT to get out! Sorry for getting so personal & off topic But now that I'm free, being that she took up every single moment of my time, I can get back to all the balloony stuff i used to do! & first on my list is definitely going out to my lake & having some fun floating on balloons!!!

After seven weeks of keeping my shoulder calm after surgery, the urge to go out on the balloon was simply getting too much. I'm starting regular training tomorrow so I thought that it couldn't hurt to exercise a tiny bit on the balloon.
I was already in my latex catsuit so I packed the balloon and pump and took on my fleese suit and my Hydroglove latex drysuit and my wetsuit boots.
I walked to a nearby lake. It was quite a walk and I got a little warm in my suit.
At last I got to the right place at nine pm , but it wasn't too dark.
I was able to inflate the balloon and wade out and sit on it. I had blown far too much air in it, but I eventually found the right balance.
I floated for about half an hour near the shore because my shoulder is still weak, but it felt good floating in the dark.
I got ashore and walked the long way home. When I got home I was soaked under my latex suit, but that's just one of the charming things of wearing latex
.

My Christmas balloon journey
I just got home after taking a nice long floating trip on my blue GL 1200.
I started out at home donning lover part of my zipperless Eurocatsuit and over it my Spy Cycling latex suit. Then I put on my fleese suit and at last my Hydroglove latex drysuit. I grabbed my bag with the balloons and off I went. I was in such a hurry that I forgot to put on my wetsuit boost, but I had my Clocs on so they would have to do.
When I got to the lake it was quite windy and I really had to hold on to the balloon when I blew it up. When I waded into the lake the wind made the balloon airborne, but I managed to step over the balloon and I quickly found the right balance.
At first I had to padle quite much just to get out on the lake, but I eventually got free from the shore. I paddled further out on the lake and eventually the wind began to push me in the right direction.
The wind picked up more and more and the waves got bigger and bigger. I bounced up and down and I could really feel the wind pushing harder and harder on the balloon.
After about an hour I had been pushed all the way to the other end of the lake.
The waves was really big there and I really bounced on the balloon
When I was ten meters the shore I was thrown of the balloon, but an elderly man managed to grab it before it flew off.
He asked me if I was cold and I said no I felt nice and warm in my drysuit. We talked a bit about my suit and he went off. I tried to get out on the lake again, but the waves was too big so I decided to go home.
Writing this I'm still wearing my latex suit and my balloon and drysuit is drying.

I know that I have been writing a lot in this thread, but I simply have to share my experiences.
Today for example I drove to the usual lake and blew up a clear GL1200. I really had to fight this one to get balanced because it was a little bigger in the neck end and I had to let air out, but I eventually got to work for me.
Today I wore my cheap neck entry latex catsuit from Thailand, my fleese suit and over it my Hydroglove drysuit.
I managed to get just the right amount of air in the balloon, maybe a little too much because I was thrown off a couple of times, but I finally found the right balance. The balloon really had to be braked like a wild horse.
The balloon felt absolutely amazing between my legs. The area I sat on had just about five to ten cm of air under it so it really felt like it trying to lift off from the lake with me sitting on it.
It was the most amazing feeling and I really had to concentrate to stay on the balloon, but it was all worth it.
I don't think that I have ever felt so much like flying on the balloon before and still it's also a really good way to train up my shoulder.
Wearing the latex suit also gives me an extra kick and its supports my shoulder nicely. The lake was totally calm and I was sitting on the balloon in my suit and getting a boner.
So all in all one of the best balloon experiences I have ever had.

Hey scuba!
Dont apologize for posting your experiences. The best part about these forums is being able to share
& wow! What awesome adventures! Im super jealous, lol! I wanna try ballooning on a lake so bad it hurts! I love how you said it almost felt as though the balloon was trying to lift you out of the water with you on top!
Some day I'd love to go on a balloon adventure with you! Nice & casual; as if floating on a lake with balloons in front of people is the most innocent thing anyone can do! That would be super fun!
I always look forward to hearing of your new experiences!

That could be so cool :-P.
It's actually a bit of a dream for me to introduce my new "sport" to other people.
You know just show up at a crowded lake beach and blow up a bounce of GL's and offer anyone who is interested to experience it for a small fee.

Oh, yeah! Now THAT is definitely one business I'd gladly invest in! I think that would be crazy awesome if lake-ballooning take-off as a new sport!
