Walked up and then made my first ever descent of a 3000ft+ mountain by paraglider - flying an 'Offchutes' Mirage - one of the early paragliders made in this country back in the days when such things were little more than slightly adapted parachutes. The flight down took about 5 minutes!
we timed it just right..the clouds where low in the sky when we got started, then opened up nicely by the time we got to the top. This was my son's 1st Munro. He was not going to let it slip through his fingers like Ben MacDui the year before.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
