I'd really like to see him go 30,000 feet like he said it will if he didn't pop a balloon every once and a while.

Thats still a badass way to travel! I do worry that we may now get illegal immigrants floating in over the border.

This was Couch's third balloon flight. He realized it would be possible after watching a TV show about the 1982 lawn chair flight over Los Angeles of truck driver Larry Walters, who gained folk hero fame but was fined $1,500 for violating air traffic rules.

This nut lives near me. He drives a Corvette with an automatic no less----has got to be gey. I parked along his route out in the Oregon desert with my 30-.06 but couldn't get a good shot.
