Today was a good day. The the weather was good, the wind was good. The winds have been merciless. the gusts calmed, a bit thurmally, but not out of control, so I flew my pawer paraglider around my new house we are building and rode. My Friend Sweet Pussy Frank started working with Contour and sent me out a goody package of POV HD GPS CONTOUR cameras. I haven’t figured out the GPS part yet, but I strapped them on my toys and documented the day.
Here’s one of my flights I took with my PPG. How I got this perspective was a thing Eddie Romans friend sent me called a Broomstick360.com. I got this right before I got hit by that semi truck, so I’ve been dreaming of ways to use this. Here’s one:[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIl-B18O_wk’]
I strapped it on different parts areas of my bike and I rode some vert:[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT6URiNIgkk&feature=youtube_gdata_player’]

… and it wasn’t even my fault this time! IRONIC. I got broad sided by an 18 wheeler that ran a stop sign. I was knocked out and it destroyed what was left of my shoulder. It’s taken me over 3 years to get partial movement back to my shoulder. With the help of a few surgeries and a modified shoulder brace I’ve been able to get back in the saddle. Maybe not at the same level, but life is good to be back in my favorite playgrounds, and who knows, adapting my new body to my bike may lend itself to the need for new variation. The sun is coming out, I’m gonna go ride….
