So Zach and I are riding in a powered parachute this morning over the Greenwood/Lees Summit area and you can see it on Fox 4 live if you wish. He's riding at this moment and I'll be going up in a few. He's taking a bunch of pictures for my newspaper venture and we'll share some of them later this morning.

As they come available, details and pictures here:

How is that newspaper venture going? What possessed you to buy a newspaper?

As you know, I'm a hobby writer. But the advertising for my construction business and the wife's mortgage business are the driving forces behind it since the newspaper isn't really profitable at the moment. Additionally, we already have the fatchatter discussion forums for which the newspaper will utilize to drive some traffic there as well. Who knows though - maybe it will turn into something bigger.

Kloster Holdings will one day be out of debt and able to hang out with Native African Americans like Rainman.

So I didn't get to go up today - some other time. But Zach was on SkyFox for some time during the 6:00 broadcast. Pretty cool stuff. There's one photo over at my site right now and Zach will upload more as he gets to it.

Might want to look into the local R/C groups and see if anyone wants to strap on a digital camera to a R/C helicopter or plane. It has to be cheaper than the cost of renting out a ultralight and qualified pilot. Have a buddy in Colorado in the process of this very same venture. The photos and vids I have seen have all been quality, even his one crash. Anyways, just a suggestion on what may be cheaper operating costs.

Thanks but the flight time was donated by a local resident.

Cool pics, but I think you've got some weird smudge that looks kind of like a "C" on your lens.

Seriously, though, that looks like an awesome ride. I'd LOVE to do that sometime. Of course, I want to go skydiving at some point as well, and that may be a while.

Yes! I am anxious to jump out of an airplane. Once one of my college buddies finishes the summer semester we're supposed to meet up and cross skydiving off our lists.

Will that thing fly right with a .30 cal mounted on it?

:hmmm:

What do you think Zach?

It's a 50' canopy attached to a 400 lbs cart. I'm guessing the .30 cal would do just fine as long as the ducks don't start fighting back.
