The Goodyear Blimp was in town this weekend for the UF/FSU football game. One lucky fan won a ride. I have ridden in many different aircraft - the most exotic being a powered parachute. But I have never ridden in a blimp. It is one of the things I would like to do. They fly very slowly - they fly low - they are fuel efficient - and they are a perfect platform for taking pictures. When Lulu and I were on on our honeymoon in Miami in 1971 - they used to offer rides to the general public. I thought I would have plenty of chances later in life. Times flies - and now it is very difficult to get a ride.
