SCARED IN THE SKIES! Man Takes Friend Who is AFRAID of Flying on Aerobatics Flight

Still my favorite if I need a vicarious thrill.

The Ferris Reel

SCARED

Antony decided to take his friend Josh, who has a fear of flying, up in the air. Because nothing cures your fear of flying like being tossed about in a tiny plane while doing aerobatic tricks thousands of feet off the ground.

A hilarious three minute video posted on YouTube simply titled ‘Aeros with Josh’ shows the man’s terrified reactions as the pilot pulls stomach-churning moves high in the air.

Since it was posted on Monday, it has gained nearly 765,000 views.

In Case You Couldn’t Be There . . .

Thanks to Toby for this video of the Fenn and Preston chat before the book signing:

 

 

The following are my opinions. I have, on more than one occasion, said and written that the event on May 18, 2017 caused a change in Fenn. He was already tired of the “activity” around the effort to find the treasure he hid. May 18, to me, was the straw that broke the burro’s back. […]

Discovering a real Jurassic Park

What a cool opportunity!

P1080035A ranch. Somewhere high in north-western Montana. We’re fly fishing in the baking heat, casting for trout, listening to the trickle of clear spring creeks and glimpsing sleek, fast-moving shapes in the shadows.

It should be relaxing, but I’m distracted. I discovered in a chance conversation with the rancher’s wife earlier in the morning that at least two dinosaurs are entombed in rock on their land and she promised a ride to where the university volunteers are digging – and spending the long scorching summer.

“Yeah, they’re all living up there in the rocks, right beside the rattlers,” said the woman with a  real life Jurassic Park on her land. “Someone flew over the ranch in a hang glider years ago and discovered the site and they’ve been working on it on and off ever since.”

The Jeep bounced, rattled and shuddered its way over a track more suited to cowboys…

Thank you, Jim.  It was unforgettable.   : )
