It's early for me, 10.30 am on a Saturday morning, and I'm only just starting to 'get it together' after a 'Dutch' super-coffee & my handful of medz. 6 hrs sleep, for once, feels like a 12-hr lie-in right now.
... and my very 1st post here, I *had* planned to make that my intro thread (I'm NO fora rookie!) but that will have to wait until later in the weekend. (I'm a sports-junkie so weekends tend to be long & late - this weekend it's soccer, rugby(England v Waless), F1GP - #GoLewis , boxing, NCAA (college) american football & NFL from 6 pm Sunday to 4 am Monday morning.)
But instead I find myself moved by this amazing challenge (esp at this time of year )
Yes, I'll be making a donation to this super-worthy cause - but it will be next Friday, when my next PIP payment hits the bank. £30 to get started, more to come later.
I'll also start posting about it on my social media feeds. I haven't worked out the timings yet, but on first glance it looks like I *might* be able to witness the flight for myself, either down the Cumbrian coast or the north seas coast on the eastern leg. Have to check the map better later for dates.
Hmm, think I'd best upgrade my membership here too, and soon.
My very best to the challenge team, and to every member who is backing this AMAZEBALLS adventure 👏
Time to give my wee support woofit his morning 'walk' now - only after you've met him (Merlin the Min-Pin, named after the engine NOT the wizard) can it be understood why it's funny so to apostrophise the word walk
I honestly think this is a worthy adventure and also something in the UK which involves a Paramotor and is super positive and most likely to be the single largest exposure of our sport / toys to the UK general public since the Bear Grylls Everest thing which was not a happy vibe expedition / edit.
Keeping this positive and showing our support as a community is I think a humble offering in return for the all round good I think it will be doing
Again, thanks guys..
Thanks guys. Engine failed due to extra thick winter clothing and neck warmer pushing into the electrics just behind my head and wire coming off switch. New AC machines have the switch at the side - I guess I now know why. I couldn't move initially as completely winded. I couldn't even talk to a helpful passer-by. He put everything away for me and I was taken off in an ambulance. Very lucky and I got off with just torn muscles between the ribs in my back. It feels just like broken ribs.
My paramotor frame now has a healthy leaning back angle. It hit the floor so hard the motor bent the top part of the frame down so the thrust is now a little more downward. Rather weirdly, this will help me as I can't stand up straight at launch!
