Hey Dopamine,

I occasionally watch paragliding videos, but try not to too much because they make me sad I haven't pursued this dream yet.

Anyway, today I was watching "Speed Flying PARTY Soboba" and saw your cannabus featured at 0:58!
So I thought I'd drop a link and share the video here.



Keep on keeping on!

I swear some day I will join the club, maybe not "low and fast" speed flying though, ****'s a little too crazy for me.

TAOLIK- Awsome first time seeing this video, that is no doubt my cannabus ha. That is pretty much what i was thinkink when i discovered flying, why didnt i start flying in high school. but i would probably be dead by now with the lack of maturity at that age, which is very important in the sky. But it is one of the greatest inventions on earth so i will see you in the sky's someday.

Looks like a real kick in the a$$! Never tried the chute thing but used to get a similar low & fast rush in a little Pitts S1A.

Speed is relative and getting close to stationary objects definitely amplifies the speed effect. A couple of hundred mph at 5000 feet is a yawn. In between trees at 25 feet...it's a whole nuther feeling.

Then there is that upside down thing...

Yeah...I finally found a hobby more expensive than racing motorcycles. Aerobatics were worth it though. It's easy to get hooked on that kind of fun.

So i been procrastinating alot latetly just saving up & planning out my 2 week road trip. I just layed alittle bit of electrical, if it wasnt for my dad i would have no clue on what to do. Started on rear compartment box but ran out of bed frame angle

My brother from another mother has very sticky fingers so when they were building a walmart near by he was working on he five fingered alot of stuff for me, i bailed him out of jail long ago & he has been getting me supplies ever since. Best things in life are free. 20lb fire Extinguisher, 7 tubes of silicone, butyle ruber rolls, special metal they were gunna use for their restroom. F**k walmart.

When the buses became compartmentalized in 1977 and the full width divan seat in the back of RE buses were eliminated it pretty much took away any desire on my part to fool around in a school bus.

For three years we operated a Greyhound connection. On Fridays I would usually try to run the coach on the run because there was a Job Corps facility that would have a LOT of kids going back to the city. One Friday one of the kids came up to the front because the sounds of passion coming out of the restroom was more than a little annoying.

I suppose those kids considered themselves members of the Mile High Club, ground level edition.

All I know is the restroom on most motorcoaches tend to smell like a Forest Service outhouse. Even when I was the most motivated I doubt I could have stayed up to the challenge with that smell.

Got stuck in flaggstaff first night, underestimated the ditch. Will be straping on a high lift jack, a shovel & a winched front bumper forsure. The only thing that snaged me up was my rear protestor draggers & the rear bumper, after diggin for over an hour with rocks, sticks & hands i decided to quit till the morning, started to lay down when the third truck that passed actually stoped in time for me to jump out & ask for a yank, luckily it was a king ranch dually that had a strap. Bad night shot sorry.
