New Weather Stations

weatherA new online learning option is Liberty Balloon School. Bill Hughes found how to tap into a giant network of government weather stations that aren't part of our aviation system. He put together a narrated course on how to find and use their data online. His free online course is at:

www.libertyballoonschool.com/ROMAN/

You'll have to decide which is more impressive, Bill's course sharing the subtleties of using the RAWS system, or the weather data itself. It does hint at what's possible for more online balloon training. It's pretty cool, adding hundreds of government weather reporting stations in most states.

Liberty Balloon School also has several additional free programs available, plus their online balloon ground school.

I heard that http://www.balloondepot.com offers hot air balloon tours. Does that sound like a cheesy date idea or do you think a girl would enjoy that?
