Just a cool moment

Recommended Posts

I flew with three folks on Sat. We were just having some fun and testing Reved's wiring harness, I have never called before and have only flown with a team 3 times.

The other folks are at varying skill levels and had never flown team. We were feeling a bit restricted on what we thought we could do. Our average time on line is probably a year or less. We had a lot of fun and stepped way out of our self imposed comfort zone. ..We had a ball with a burst etc.

When we were down and I was trying to figure our next move. I paused and looked left. Sandy, John and Karen were all poised in launch position, intensely focused and all with huge smiles pasted on their faces.

I just had take a breath and enjoy that image for a few seconds...that was so cool. I don't know if they noticed the extended pause. I have already enjoyed that memory a dozen times already since Sat.

Reved's wiring harness helped us achieve a beautiful day of flying.

A few crashes and few crossed lines and as J&K say...Big Fun!!

We met at a JB clinic and have hooked up a couple of times since then.

Karen stated "JB would be proud"

I think she would be right. If you have a chance to catch a JB clinic don't miss it.

We can't wait till he gets back to the NW.

We do not have the mic but share your experience with JB teaching us to team fly. Big smiles all around. We had a blast and can't wait to get together and work on our moves.

I had that exact same "feeling" once. It was really my second time on a line i think. i looked down through with a buffet of names....Berg,Comras,LaMasters,Dugard,Cory........gave me chills. Since then, i always take a moment to stop and admire the line and do exactly as you stated...look at the faces of each individual,their posture and stance....take mental copies ;)

AWESOME moments indeed :)

As a solo flier in the mountains of Virginia I look forward to perhaps a future memory. But for now....

"There's a high flyin' bird, way up in the sky. And I wonder does she look down here as she flies on by. Riding in the air so easy in the sky..i..i.

Look at me here, I'm rooted like a tree here. I got the sit down, can't cry, can't fly, gonna die blues."
