Richard and Mary were visiting us from the Raleigh area. They had spent the week camping in hammocks, relearning how to hoop dance around a bonfire (hula hooping), and learning how to hang glide. They and Mark (down from New York) had a great week of training and it paid off. The photos of Mark and Mary’s first launches are in the last post and this time it was Richard’s turn. Saturday morning, in calm conditions, Richard had his first mountain flight. He flew great!
We love when the new mountain pilots come back up to launch after their first flights with a triumphant smile on their face, “I did it!”. Richard was ecstatic. Congratulations Richard, awesome flight!
Richard’s first flight
Sky (very appropriate name) Jones, 16, and his family came and spent a week with us last week. The goal was to teach Sky how to fly. He did great! As it turns out, Sky and Gordon had some things in common. Sky goes to St. Andrew’s School in Delaware, the same boarding school that Gordon graduated from (some years back). We all got a kick out of looking through Gordon’s year book and seeing some photos of him from his high school, unicycling days!
Sky had his first mountain flights this past weekend. I believe he had four mountain flights by the end of the day on Sunday. Congratulations Sky!
