    Hot Air Balloon Adventure

    Oregon is strange and beautiful. That makes it one of those places where you've just got to go with the flow. Let the wind carry you away on this scenic hot-air balloon ride over the state's burgeoning wine country. You'll be enthralled by the scenic Willamette Valley below and mountain vistas all around as you float languidly along. Since hot air balloons work by becoming lighter than the air around them, balloon rides are gentle and turbulence free. This makes for a serene escape that will leave you feeling inspired and rejuvenated. This opportunity is also the perfect chance to add some stunning aerial pictures to your photograph collection, flying low over the Willamette River and many vineyards that populate the fertile lands on either side. If you're looking for an genuinely thrilling experience, this is one adventure that isn't over inflated!

So you want to get back to the basics? Well you came to the right place: Navigation clinic. Discover the way of the... well, just the way, when you take this great introduction to navigation. You'll gain confidence on all future hikes, and you'll never wonder where north is again. You'll start with nomenclature and plotting. From there you'll hit the trail, navigating point-to-point, where each member of the group will conduct a navigation checklist, calculate distance, read the terrain on topographical maps, plot coordinates, determine pace count and estimate time. Throughout the day you'll practice route selection, circumnavigation and doglegs. Furthermore, you will experience the lost art of triangulation, where you will calculate the lines of position. You'll learn a bit about GPS's, such as how to use them in the field and how to conserve battery, and lastly, you will hit topics that include stick and shadow and celestial aids to navigation It is as the ancients say, "One can lose his or her lunch, but one can never lose his or her self.
