After a few weeks of only local airtime, I'm ready for some real flying!
Just accepted a Moyes mission to compete in the last stage of the Brazilian Hanggliding Nationals.
The first stop from Vancouver is the Moyes glider factory in Sydney, Australia, to build a new secret weapon. Well, that and surfing. Then to Rio... and a long drive to Andradas.
The comp is in a part of Brazil that I haven't flown yet; I'm looking forward to the adventure of this new playground. From what I've heard, it's a semi-arid part of the interior, with rolling hills.
The Brazilians are fast and super-confident in their own country; it's going to be an intense time!

About 60h just to get there... lots of time to think. It'll leave me smelling of Eau de Boeing, for sure.
Still have a couple of days to pack.
