March 18/04       Yet, another home made box coming...

This season I want to get out more. Instead of spending every weekend at the field teaching PPG I would like to spent some time traveling Ontario and New York State to enjoy flying in different areas. Frankly, I know the Sodom road field  so well that I could take off, fly over Niagara Falls and land with my eyes closed. There is no reason to tow my trailer on these trips as I only need one paramotor and couple gliders. So as you see I am building trailer hitch platform and plywood box  to house my Simon RR, Brontes, Golem and all the other things one needs to fly. Some would say "Why do not you put your equipment in the car?" Well after 4 years of dealing with paramotors I can not stand the smell of gasoline anymore!  Wish me luck, I will keep you posted on the progress.

March 18/04       Technical notice.
