Sterling & Kristina Emerson

Topeka, Kansas

SS Journey


In 2011, Sterling and Kristina Emerson along with three of their seven children got involved at the Huff 'n Puff Hot Air Balloon Rally crewing for GPBC member Jack Neal in Rainbow Rider. In 2012 they traveled to many out of town rallies where they enjoyed crewing for several different balloons throughout Kansas and Oklahoma.

Having fully been bitten by the ballooning bug, in December 2012 Sterling got his student pilot's license, and just a few short months later they purchased S.S. Journey, a FireFly F7 over a 4.5 basket.  You can not miss the red puzzle piece placed on the skirt to help raise awareness for autism spectrum disorders in honor of their two children who live with autism. It also helps Sterling figure out which end is up!

They now enjoy sharing this sport with their children, grand children, family and friends.
