i might be heading down there this weekend. My wife is making me go to this

http://www.historiclongbranch.com/balloonfest/index.htm

anything close-by that would be worth bringing my knobbies? anyone willing to guide a quick 2-3 hour ride? i've heard many good things about the area but not sure how far it is from the above link or from winchester, which is were i'd be staying.

thanks
kevin
