The World Record hits the News Outlets!

WOW!  What a crazy couple of weeks since the big day.  Flying has been less than stellar, with very few flyable days with a lot of wind lately, but it’s been fun to see the news spreading around the world and getting in an attempt to Jackson Hole (blog post coming soon) and some fun acro hucks off Baldy in the evenings.  Red Bull picked it up first, followed by the Daily Mail in the UK, then National Geographic Weekend did a fun radio interview, then National Geographic Adventure ran it as the Extreme Photo of the week and then the Weather Channel did a nationwide cable broadcast!  I’ll have to go out and do more of this record stuff, fun to get paragliding in the mainstream!

Then the Daily Mail ran a huge piece, but with some glaring mistakes:)  I’ll let you pick them out…
