parapenting from Aspen sure gets the adrenaline going. Paul can
be seen here with tandem instructor just after a rocket style launch.
We had an excellent thermal and ridge lift that catapulted us into
the air after a couple of steps. It was pretty brisk floating around,
but the view was great.
and instructor go over the launch. When the time comes you really
have to have your act together. Running through the snow can be
run, run!" It's launch time during an excellent cycle. Once
the canopy is inflated, level and straight - getting airborne is
important. Floating away on an express elevator sure feels great!
