I'm always afraid that stuff like that would quit working at the most inconvenient moment.

I have a buddy who has gotten into power paragliding pretty heavy. It looks like a blast but I have issues with strapping a gasoline engine directly to my back. The cart versions look much more intriguing to me though. I also find it odd that he finds a gas engine with a whirling prop tied to his back a good choice for a guy with a 3' long ponytail.

Murph the airport where I work out of has a couple of guys who trains folks on both backpack and cart type paragliders and I've seen several of the carts take some nasty tumbles whereas I've never seen any serious incidents with the backpack models, the cart models seems to always have issues with landing (usually too fast) while the backpack models have more issues trying to get enough airspeed to get lift in the parachute to get airborne. It can be quite amusing at times.

That's interesting Rick. Perhaps he is not as crazy as the whole get up makes him look. Hmmm, now that I am not off-roading anymore, I do need another expensive hobby.

Sec, phone is ringing.

"Hello Honey, why are you calling in the middle of the day? What? No way? It's impossible that you read about me wanting another expensive hobby, I haven't even hit [Send] yet!"
"No Dear, of course we need to save money for more 'together things'.
Yes Dear.....No Dear.....I was just....But I.....But.....
OK, I will. Buh Bye, love you too.
"

I'm sorry you had to hear that. \:\(
