No I have never ridden in a hot air balloon and I don't want to! LOL! I would be plastered to the bottom of the basket. I hate flying! DH and I went up in a helicopter in Pigeon Forge one year. I swore when we landed that I would NEVER do that again! LOL!
I am a firm believer that if God had wanted us to fly he would have given us wings! However, I love to look at the ballons, they fly over a lot here.
