Cluster Ballooning, Pretty Wild Stuff

Posted by direwolff on December 27, 2007

Just when I thought I had heard it all, here comes a new sport (if you can call it that given that you’re just “hanging around”, pardon the pun), and it’s called Cluster Ballooning.

The history behind this sport is actually pretty interesting as there’s been some urban myths about this sport, though the reality is far more interesting. A great summary of this can be found on Snopes. The Cluster Ballooning site shows step by step pictures of how it all gets set-up. Definitely worth checking out.

If the links above don’t work for whatever reason, you can get to the Cluster Ballooning site at this URL: http://www.clusterballoon.org/intro/intro.html.  There’s also a QuickTime slide show here.
