  • Took phoebe indoor skydiving

    Phoebe was a real trooper today. she was all excited about joining me this afternoon at I FLY HOLLYWOOD Universal city walk, indoor skydiving.


    Phoebe took the 15 minute training class and then went into the wind tunnel with the instructor to fly for 1 minute. not bad for a 3.5 year old.

        not enough wind on this earth to loft a big plumber with a pocket full of cast iron pipe wrenches.

          I've got the pics. Rick has always been into indoor skydiving. I'm waiting to see him do the real thing.

            I've done the real thing. Probably 20 years ago in California City. Just outside Mojave desert. Did the accelerated free fall. 8 hours of training and 2 instructors. Too windy to jump afterwards and had to come back the following weekend. 110 miles each way.

            Better off with tandam, 30 minutes training and you're done.

              It's not always about how fast you get it done.

                  around our place to day all one would have to do is put a harness on phoebe tie the harness off on a fence post and she could do that only horizontally. no wind tunnel needed, just mother nature,
                  just to walk across the drive way she would need rocks in her little pockets,

                  looks like she had fun, and really today is not pleasant out around here winds up to 50 mph,

                  drove through he wind farm near the farm here, and two of the turbines were busted up, do not know what took place,

                    BHD, It's easy to figure out what happened to the wind towers--they were not built to handle all that marijuana smoke!

                        Probably a controls issue.... the controller didn't feather the blades when the wind picked up and they self-destructed.

                              Rick, you've given her the gift of weightless flight, enough! At this rate what guy will ever be able to impress her and outdo "Daddy"? Leave a little for Prince Charming
