... for ourselves. The last few ropes were clipped up and released and then effortlessly we were floating, quickly rising to quite a height and soon to cruising altitude of about 3,500 feet. The climb was serene and oddly silent. One thing I hadn't realised was that you don't feel the wind in the balloon, as the balloon is moving at the same speed as the wind - only feel it when the altitude chnages and wind direction moves until the balloon readjusts.
