Nothing Bill. I only suffer withdrawal symptoms (I've been deprived of kite for nearly 3 months!)
OK -- a bit of an adrenaline rush here :
You use to Fly ----
I watched when you loaded a VW van with HG's loaded up top .
Ya loaded on a Big Boat.
A Boat headed to an island off the West coast of Africa.
Ya then Launched off a "HUGE" cliff with your hang glider.
Your Woman cooked Ya food when you landed.
You had a GOOD Day That day !!!
Last Sunday a Guy from Colorado, lent me a new PG and carried it up a cliff
near Vegas.About 15 Pilots from across the pond and the US had launched ahead of me.
1/2 went Down 1/2 went Up.
I "Suck" at flying a PG, about as bad as Kite-boarding.
Launch went fine but Nature pressed me Down towards the unlucky pilots that had landed before me.
75 ft from the bottom," and totally ready to land ----I got Lucky". It happened After i had let go. I'll deal
with what's Dealt. Let nature take it's coarse. A calmness went through my Body.
10 minutes later, ((and after i had caught a thermal 75 ft off the deck)) I found myself at 2,000ft over. 1,500ft
higher than the highest PG below me.
Did i mention : "I SUCK at flying a PG" ? ---- Really, i'm Not joking ; i can't fly those things for Sh*t !!
Just got Really Lucky !!!
It was a "Good" day like yours, Also !!
The POINT ? :
Let the "SUCKEY" days just Slide past Ya ... ... ...
