This is a video from a very early flight, probably my second ridge-soaring flight. For anyone who keeps hearing me talking about it and is wondering what entry-level paragliding is like. Just watching this video it’s amazing how much I’ve progressed since then.
Since I’ve just bought my wing, I’ll be spending the next month here in Bucaramanga paragliding.
The Bad News: For the next month, this blog will consist primarily of paragliding and massages.
The Good News: For the next month, my life will consist primarily of paragliding and massages.
Bought a lightweight wing, reversible harness (meaning it acts as a backpack) and full helmet. Will write it up later. Here is a picture of my helmet, with the living room as a background. Now off to town to sell a kidney!
Not entirely sure what just happened, but I seem to have gotten one of the best massages in my life for about $10.
Very pretty pink flowers carpeting the sidewalk on the way home, still no camera.
Decided to go back and get some more flying in. A local dealer has a wing to show me this weekend, so hopefully I’ll be set up pretty soon. Will be tripling the amount of luggage I carry, but I say it’s worth it.
