While we sit behind our lappies, blogging and tweeting, it’s nice to know that there is real life out there. Not just real life but real adventure. Take Mike and James. Two South Africans. They’re flying around the world. So what? Not sitting back, slukking on a Chardonnay, in First Class in an Airbus, people. In a Sling. A “light sport aircraft”.
That means logging into turbulence, not Twitter. That means not being able to do a piddle whenever your bladder takes you (I hope). That means nibbling on an Ouma with one hand on the wheel (I imagine). Think about it. This is Howard Hughes behaviour. I love a tale of derring-do. I sometimes take a walk down to the beach. Fifty metres there. Fifty metres back. I know what it’s all about.
But Mike and James are on a whole new level here. Yes, literally. Over to SA Rocks for the whole story.
Yowzers. I like that. That’s SA-positive for you. And how cool that one of our daredevil pilots is the uncle of fellow blogger Jason Bagley?
Nice. Now, I know you want to keep track of the globe-circumnavigating (doesn’t that sound so dramatique?) progress of Mike and James as they dodge meteors, Airbuses and large flocks of albatrosses par avion to Wisconsin, US of A. While eating only Ouma rusks and not taking a swazz. You can do that right here.
Always at your service, Hatpeople.
