I have truly been blessed. I learned to hang glide 30 years ago and I have spent almost every winter since then flying Mexico. I have seen this country as few gringos- or human beings for that matter- have ever had the opportunity. I have seen Mexico like the halcones and the zopilotes. But unlike our feathered friends- I got to sample the beer too. And sample, and sample and sample… Well, you get the picture.–
Or do you?
I am compelled to try and describe my experiences in an effort to share them with the millions of Mexico fans who will never get to huck themselves off a cliff and disappear into the Mexican back country. It has been an exciting quarter century. The results can be found at my new web site www.TalesFromTheWildBlueYonder.com
I would post a few episodes here if that’s appropriate.
Currently I am camped and flying on the beach in Nayarit.
Carl chimes in:
John, it is great to see your post but you forgot to sign your name… And please, don’t deprive us of further episodes or excerpts from your books. One of the purposes of this blog and our newly opened Talk About Mexico forums is to provide a friendly soapbox for other Mexico authors and bloggers. There is so much “fluff” on the internet about Mexico that the really good stuff tends to get lost in the crowd. Keep it coming! Adelante!
Here’s a link to John Q Olson’s WildBlueYonder website. John alsohas some very cool videos of flying along the beach in Nayarit, Mexico on YouTube.
I also encourage anyone interested in flying in Mexico to get a back-and-forth conversation going with John on the forum. I’ll copy this post to the forums and hope that John is able to pry himself out of his hammock occasionally to contribute some more of his experiences.
