Pushing the Envelope

Balloon terms I didn’t know: The Envelope, The Gores, The Crown, The Skirt, The Burner, The Mouth. There may be a story here, and a story with every balloon journey. A tale of adventure, of mystery. Secret communication (why else call it The Envelope?)
This tiny balloon with intricate lacing is less than 2 inches tall. Hovering aloft above the rooftops of the sleeping town below.

How far can you fly, floating on clouds, accepting the winds? As the balloon would tell you, as far as you can push the envelope itself.
