Couldn’t resist posting bout this, when i came acroos a version of my sunset pic here above tonight, then i got carried away watching a few vids of my fav flying guys on the planet 🙂


floatin over tha marriot!

Most Extreme an Kewl vacation i ever took in my life; was when i went to visit an internet friend in Peru i had met right after my lady at the time passed away , i seriously needed a break frum life…was one of the most incredible eye opening adventures i have ever had in my life for many reasons besides the daily flying an trying to interpret an communicate in a language i halp hassardly understand an speak..This post is jest bout the flying….In one day u can have a lesson an be flying there, Mikes dad took paragliding an hangliding to the coast some 20+ years ago, an he was raised there paragliding an is a great awesome pilot with thousands of hours flying, these guys jest love to fly, flip em 25 bucks an ur up for an hour ..more money more time is al there is to it,,,some days i would spend 100 bucks going for all day flights. etc etc,,,is a blast when the conditions are correct..After spending a month down there i almost up an sold everything i had but my ultralight an took it to Peru an stayed there so i could have the ability to fly every day, an jest take American vacationers on rides etc etc, but well, my faith in my spanish skills was not good enuff at the time, an I feared if i left the united states for that log well, i would never come back, one of those lifes choices i guess..an i had a fear i would not be able to make it eventually an get stuck down there …so i stayed here in Colorado… Sumtimes i wish i would have stayed there also…who knows maybe i’ll vacation there again, is the kewlest vacation ya can imagine an the culture of time passed they know an believe in down there is pert incredible …an the trade exchange rate is incredible also…jest watch out for the street vendors that exchange money ,,, that they give ya the correct amount 🙂 ..if ya do choose to go there ..more on Peru an da’ culture there another day! Outback an to the small towns an Peruvian wilderness an coastlines is another story another day Q..


PS: who says money don’t talk…Money did most of the talking for me a lot when i was down there, don’t need to know the language jest how to count LOL :).

An another perspective of flying thew same spot frum another angle….. i nevr got tired of flying here…flew almost daily for 3 of the weeks i was there.took lotsa old skewl video lol….

  1. Sorry about your loss, getting away at that time was probably the smartest thing you could do. As far as staying permanently that had to be a hard decision, but I guess we can’t live by hindsight. Al we would see is rear ends, or where we been. You are one lucky dude, with your flying and your very exciting life, part bird, part man can’t beat that.

    • yeahssssss…. only better spot to live fer me would be by the coast where flying is free every day frum the front yard, up here i need the engine power to assist..but i do love living in da mountains, so now i fly according to mountain weather rules lol.. .
