    Dang... that was frk'n amazing! Like anything, that level of precision takes a TON of practice... but look at the payoff!

    For those of us who aren't quite there, there's a ride at Disneyland called "Soarin' Around the World" (it used to be Soarin' Over California), that will absolutely take your breath away!

    Or... come visit me in Yuba City, and I'll fly you around the smallest mountain range in the world, the largest earth dam in the US, and the highest waterfall outside of a national park in the US (weather permitting)!

    Cheers!
    Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.

    That is awesome. I can't stop looking at these paramotors and think how much fun they would be.

    Maybe staying close to the ground might be safer.
