Dressing for your balloon rideMonday October 27
One of the most fun and exciting things to do in Idaho is visit one of their Hot Air Balloon rides. Seeing the beautiful mountain sides from a hot air balloon is an incredible and unforgettable experience. While ballooning is a fun thing to do, it can become a nightmare if you are not properly dressed for the occasion. There are enough things that you will forget before you go on your vacation, so don’t let this be one of them.
If you are going out for a balloon flight in the summer, keep in mind that while you will be up high in the air, you are going to be next to giant flame. it will still be warm while you are floating amongst the clouds. The flame does produce heat, however in the fall flights it is not going to be enough to keep you warm. Bring items like a scarf, wool hat, gloves, thick coat and even double up your socks. The high altitudes and wind can chill balloonists to the bone, so you might even consider wearing thermal underwear. Remember, you can always take off layers, but you cannot put more on.
So when you are about to go on your balloon adventure, do not just think about it being a fun thing to do in Idaho, think about the proper clothing you will want to wear. Proper dress will help you weather the weather the weather and enjoy your vacation.
