Now it was time to fly.
I took off first and immediately wished I hadn't left the ground. To me, it was like flying in a tornado and wasn't comfortable at all. In all fairness though, it wasn't beyond conditions I'd flown in before, but it had been a while and I had forgotten how bumpy, lifty, and sinky conditions could be and still safely flown in. I flew for only about 5 minutes before I decided that I wanted to land again and watch them fly.
After Jesse got back, we headed off to his shop him and Marty did a complete tune up on Shaniqua - my Fresh Breeze Monster Paramotor. So, instead of getting a long smooth flight in, I got a thorough tune-up and I cleaned her up. Just wait till next weekend!
