Celebrating 6 years in the desert by going above and beyond. Thanks to 4 production companies that courted me for some reality TV in the past year (all of which I blew off in the end), I am indulging myself with a rather extravagant Christmas present. Just ordered a Fresh Breeze Simonini 122 paramotor and an Edel Power Atlas paraglider. Hope to schedule training at TFL in March or April. The really good news is I think I am now blacklisted by reality TV producers due to my silly demands of wanting cash only, wanting final approval on what would be aired, and not allowing my rights to be signed away "in perpetuity, throughout the universe" (actual wording on one of the contracts they tried to get me to sign). I will only allow them rights for 5 years and on Earth only. Forever is an awfully long time and I need to keep my options open in case I get a better offer from extraterrestrials.
