So, I'm reading the Portland Press Herald this morning, and read THIS STORY!

:???: Apparently this guy wants to tie a bunch of helium balloons to a Portland Pudgy, and fly across the Atlantic from Maine to Europe. :eek:

"...A North Carolina man plans to fly from Maine to Europe this summer in a particularly whimsical way: in a Maine-made dinghy held aloft by hundreds of helium-filled balloons. The solo flight would be the first-ever crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by a balloonist using cluster balloons..."

Kinda like a movie my kids watched a while ago. :D

I wonder when he told his parents what his calling was?

"Mom, Dad; Please sit down... I'd like to discuss what I want to do with my life..." :mrgreen:
