Jonathan Trappe is off on an adventure in his floating house, just like Mr Fredricksen in Up!

Trappe was the first person to cross the English Channel with cluster balloons and this test run at the Leon International Balloon festival in Mexico was a warm up for his Atlantic crossing attempt next Summer.

The clever guy plans to fly the 2500 miles in a 7 foot lifeboat with 365 balloons … and so he can’t fail really. Perfect!
