Life is too short to sit still

===> Due to the pandemic, ALL paid rides are Cancelled for 2020 <===

My name is Gene, and I've constructed this site so you might   that there is MORE to life THAN what is in your NORMAL vision.  (look inside to see why "ClipAway" came to mind).

Example: Most people have seen Hot Air Balloons on TV or in a magazine, BUT how many know they can participate in this sport and even earn a free flight???  (Please send a note via the "Contact Us" link on the left)
I've attempted to balance the following pages with some interesting hobbies and links. Please feel free to explore my world (and come back now and again to see the changes).

P.S.-- Thanks to my friends (I count my crew among them) for all their support.

Check inside to see ClipAway flying in the New Jersey area or at Balloons over Bristol, Ct and other events!
