My video from the iPod I had on my cap. Means more to people who were in the grid than the general public so I tried to include some notes for non-flyers.
Tough to squeeze it down to under the 15 minutes as there really are a lot of cool moments.
Some of the conversation was funny!
Bart, thanks for taking a video of my personal kite in the Megafly.
Guess that happened by accident when I flew in the column next to a very inventive videographer.
Interesting aspect of aging, I confused the three days (Thur, Fri, and Sat). I remembered being the first casualty of the 64 grid, having to set my Lime B on the ground when my eyes rebelled against the bright skies by watering up until I was flying almost blind. Very early in the flight, but I chose to wimp out rather than risk taking out other fliers.
However, that happened, luckily, on the first (Thur) Megafly. The biggie on Friday was fine for me - I found some dark clip-on sunglasses to go on top of my prescription sunglasses, which saved my eyes on Friday and Saturday. [Hint: Friday kite was not Lime.]
So your video refreshed my memory and allowed me to see my contribution to the 64 Megafly. Thanks.
I'm glad you found you were more comfortable in the Megafly than you anticipated (over-thought). Heck, you did a better job than I and a lot of other fliers.
It was a blast. Again, thanks to JB, Felix, Peter (no, no, that was Steven or Stephan), and Baz, and all the other master fliers who all were fantastically patient with, and even more helpful to, us bottom fliers. I can hardly wait until next year - 81 definitely, 100 maybe!
