Looking out between the clouds (from my paraglider) a couple thousand feet above the ground!

Today was an amazing day of flying! A few of the competition pilots have arrived, and I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to chase them around the sky for the last couple days. The conditions today didn’t look that great initially, but once we launched, we realized we had an epic day on our hands. Perfect clouds were popping everywhere, and the flight was *almost* too easy! I flew for three and a half hours (and had to pee for three of them), and made it 71km (just over 44 miles). A couple of the guys made it to the lake for flights just over 80km. There is nothing on earth that can be compared to floating in and out of clouds thousands of feet above the earth! I’m definitely in love with free flight, and am working on arranging my life to make time for even more. 🙂
