Good skills Glenn-o!

I remember the first time I met Noman, he drove his truck really fast at me while I was sitting on the ground, missed by not much... his first words were "You didn't even flinch bro!!!". Noman is, in fact, awesome.

I reckon Noman would get along well with our Thief (note the way the moving vehicle has to stop), come on down Noman, man-up:

I dreamed of being a fighter pilot as a kid. Apparently, I'm still dreaming. Laughing

About 0.75 seconds after I saw the first time a HG flying in real life, I decided "that is what I want". The image of it activated the flying genes I got from my dad. Thank you Daddy, even if you didn't like me flying HG at first, you are my biggest supporter now.

When I was ten years old, a friend's parents took us to the American Cup World Hanggliding Comp at Lookout Mountain. At 10 years old I knew this was something I had to do ... Sad that it took me 30 years to get my first flight but here I am ...

Life's goal is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body.
But rather to slide in sideways, totally worn out and broken, shouting
"Holy Crap, WHAT A RIDE !!"

There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties. ~~~Douglas Adams
