Great footage! My stomach is in a knot. Thank goodness he did not, like the mythological Icarus, fly too close to the sun. He's certainly capable of it.

Hey, Dan... I couldn't do this myself, but what freedom!

George, it is a breathtaking video, isn't it? I admire people who can develop that much fearlessness. They are farther along that path than I.

Hi, Robert,

Yes, this is well past my ability. But I can imagine how much fun it would be to navigate the air currents with so much abandon and freedom.
