Flying with a parachute

On May 29th 2005 I had the pleasure of flying with a neighbor,Mark Zabel, in his para plane over the city of New London Wisconsin. He took me up and we checked on the four osprey nests in our area that we are monitoring from the ground also. I have never felt the thrill of being in the air on that level. It was like sitting on a swing suspended in time and space. It was so great. We had to go up two times because of fuel and the take offs and landing were a thing all of their own. I have uploaded some photos of the day,some are good others not, but I want to tell the whole story.
