When the Army experimented with the paraplane, I got the opportunity to fly this type of contraption quite a few times. Aside from being heavy and off balanced, it was loud and smelly. to expensive to just bury in the desert or throw away.
        "ULTIMATE SKI GADGET"? I am so glad this is not my mode of transportation!
         I love my slow paced, old fashioned, getting back to nature lifestyle

Avid outdoorsman? My son and I snowshoe and winter camp with a four season tent and no stove. When my daughter comes along we drag sleds holding the campfire style tent I made and my military style Yukon stove. We canoe and kayak long trips in the early spring till Thanksgiving. That's my son's and my last float of the canoe season as we celebrate his birthday.  My daughter more than my son loves climbing. My sore neck!
Along with the tent, I've made packs,paddles and the poor man's RV from an 18' boat trailer. It now carries our canoes, kayaks, mountain bikes, camping ger and the TeePee pole
