Jeff writes "Kent Couch, an Oregon cluster balloonist has flown a lawn chair above Oregon at an altitude of 13,000 feet using helium balloons. The AP reports he received rope burns trying to hang on during a bout of turbulence having forgotten to buckle his seat belt.

Couch, 47, is the latest American to emulate Larry Walters — who in 1982 rose three miles above Los Angeles in a lawn chair lifted by balloons. Walters surprised an airline pilot, who radioed the control tower that he had just passed a guy in a lawn chair with a gun.
Snopes confirms the Walter flight but has no entry yet for Couch."
