Kent Couch decided to spend a bit of time in his lawn chair Sunday. Click the link to read the whole story. He's from Bend Oregon and had read about the lawn chair guy (Larry Walters) in Los Angeles all those many years ago. Bend, Oregon. What a beautiful place to float away from.
Now if I had an extra $5000 for helium, I just might try this myself. The closest I've come to something like this was last year on our helicopter trip over the grand canyon. What a blast. I recommend it to everyone. Well, except kids under the age of 5 or 6. The grandeur is wasted on that age. It was exhilerating, yet surreal. You're floating above the canyon yet feel completely safe and awed.
