The Balloon Story by Rhys

Imagine your most favourite spot in the world or a place you like to visit.

At this spot, you are waiting to leave with a group of people on a hot-air balloon.  Three of you all won a trip on this balloon.  As you step into the balloon with the other two people you accidentally kick the rope that was holding the balloon to the ground. It suddenly lifts off the ground without the person who was going to take the three of you on the tour.

“The basket floated higher and higher. The two guys and I in the balloon were freaking out. Once we all calmed down and realized we weren’t going to die I found out about them.

Bob is a 20-year-old trucker and Joe is 10 years old like me. We had been floating for days in the balloon until we crashed. We didn’t know where we were but we were surrounded by snow. We made shelter in the snow and waited for days but nobody came.

So we hiked and hiked until we came to an abandoned airport. There were no planes but there was an old truck. Bob drove the truck to a large city and we figured out it was Anchorage, Alaska. We quickly found the police station and went in. The police actually knew who we. We were all over the news.

The police got us on a plane back to Port McNeill. When I got back I hugged my mom and dad.”
