IN THE MEAN TIME, HERE’S A FEW FOR WATCHING…
Seven years ago I sat on the cliffs of Iceland dreaming I could fly. It was just a fantasy since the reality of that could never happen… until it did. I learned to fly at home and a friend organized a tour to be the first ever to explore the depths of Iceland on a paramotor. The ultimate dream had come true. The ability to go where there are no roads — particularly no tour buses— blesses us with a humbling advantage. Over volcanoes, lava fields, and skies untouched.
Arrived by air. I can’t tell you how awesome this is. I do enjoy backpacking and love summiting mountains… but being able to fly into a far remote site is a flavor of awesome in its own.
I flew out to a remote location at the Glamis sand dunes with a crew of guys and I had to find a good enough spot that was both far away enough, and allowed me to be able to take off from the next day. I spotted this place and circled it in the air a few time just to be sure there weren’t going to be any surprises and then committed. I got set up about 20 min to sunset and played around on the dunes. No reception in this valley as it surrounded me with tall sandy slopes which I had to jump off, of course. The night was totally calm and enjoyable.
By morning there was a breeze out of the east which meant I had a slight uphill launch (in sand) so I was a bit nervous but the wind scooped me up in a reverse launch and I was back at the base camp by 6:45am to drop the gear and go fly with the others again.
It’s finally here. Enjoy the full length show. Approximately 23 minutes. It was nice to also have to opportunity to score the music for this piece as well (with a cover song at the end). Thanks to all who have helped in the making of this tribute. For Jeff.
An adventurous trip in Monument Valley, UT through Navajo land. It’s quite surreal to be able to fly to a place where it’s questionable if any human has ever been to. With light weight and compact gear we were abler to carry it with us on our paramotors and enjoy this thrill.
A review of 2014-2015. Not all are personal adventures, in fact, most of them were filmed with work but it’s a wonderful taste of the places and people I was blessed to visit and film. The 2015-2018 recap is in the works.
Here’s a quick recap of some of the locations and projects filmed in 2012-2013. There’s no way to put all the locations and people I want into this but it reminds me of the wild ride it’s been over the past 2 years.
I met up with the Fly Halo guys in Glamis and at the Salton Sea Fly-In where I got to fly along side them while they threw down this eye candy. If you’d like to get into the sport, I highly recommend checking out the pros at flyhalo.com.
