Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit…  | Paramotoring near Frederick, Maryland

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

 

Paramotoring is basically paragliding, except with a giant lawnmower strapped to your back. What could go wrong? 
 
I was briefly interested in this pastime a few years ago, but the engine is heavy, noisy and requires you to be able to do things like rebuild carburetors. It was fun buying aviation fuel at the Frederick airport with a Mazda miata though. I was literally in a line between two airplanes when I filled up my portable gas tanks. 
 

Thanks to my brother Darrel for letting me do this on his farm and to my friend Rich for shooting a lot of the video (with a Canon 5D Mark II). Thanks also to Wagner for the score. I did the editing myself in Final Cut Pro 7.
