I was training with Mike McGrath here in late March, 2000. It's near launch time. My French buddy and fellow pilot, Michel Theoilier took this one in early April, 2000. This is cool! I'm inflating a 310 at Sarova Base here. The heat is intense. I launched at Sarova Base Camp and landed near Fig Tree Road in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

The balloons I flew here were Lindstrand 180, 260, 310,000 cubic foot balloons. It was hopefull in a year they would upgrade my license to include the 400,000 balloon. It's the largest passenger carrying balloon in the world. As fate would have it, I was home in just over 6 months.
