Launch Site

It is still a bit early, but a flight prediction I made today shows the balloon going primarily to the north for 15 miles. 

If so, we may want to launch at the Idaho and Oregon border on US 95. It would take about 45 minutes, I believe, to drive there from Nampa. 

We definitely do not want to land in the mountains, even in the Owyhees which are south of Nampa. A balloon flight from the border would fly over the mountains and then land and farm land south of Nampa and Kuna.
