There's no way I will be able to get a shot with a hot air balloon around here, but will you accept a blimp picture instead?

Current normal: Gas station employee posing...
Current difficult: Hot air balloon, preferably grounded?

I'm thinking you have a blimp somewhere easily accessible. I would say yes.

A.k.a blimp? But you seem to be an aeronautical guru so I am sure there is a difference.

Meh, aeronautic/Archer joke, obviously you don't understand the core concept.  I believe a blimp is a form of rigid inflatable.

Since parking next to one seems to be impossible I will accept a picture of your ride with a rigid inflatable or hot air balloon in the background, in flight or grounded. Just not a fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft.

Ha on second thought I'll swing by there tomorrow, it's like an hour drive in traffic and its almost rush hour. I think we should have a meet at a K1 or Dromo One indoor gokarting place, sound good?

Technically, no. That would be a dirigible, I believe, like the Hindenberg.

But "Rigid inflatable" opens up all sorts of possibilities, and we're not talking aeronautics...

I missed some of the posts above. A blimp is a gas bag with a suspended gondola.

A dirigible has a metal frame inside the gas bag. I think the Goodyear blimp is frameless...

But who knows- I'm just a hot air bag myself...

I'm not a fan of clowns, I just want to see this done.

Juggalos count, provided they are wearing face paint.  Then kindly remove them from the gene pool after the picture is taken.

CRAP!  Beat me by 20 min, or roughly the time it took my computer to crash 3x while trying to get my antique digital camera to sync.

Re: The Official Saab92x.com Picture Game v2.0

IMHO those are lame.  2nd one better than the first, but when you need a gigantic red arrow to point out the balloon you haven't really accomplished the task.  facepalm

I had the opportunity to take a similar pic with the balloon over Navy Pier, but thought a white blip in the background would not suffice.
