Default Trek to Eloy, Arizona

Hello VAF?ers, There is a long time lag between our treks to getting the video posted due in part to poor WiFi and too much fun-having doing other things. Roy and I have been having FUN here in the Arizona sunshine, including taking advantage of clear, calm air, and exploring the neighborhood. We recently went to Eloy (E60) where there is a HUGE sky-diving center, complete with restaurant, swimming pool, massage studio, and gear shop. Food was good - not great. The real fun was watching people jump out of perfectly good airplanes.
I hope the video shows the highlights.
(Disclaimer - I?m new to the Go-Pro thing, and its a bit of a learning curve.)

I Love Eloy! I have, been there several times. Next time, sign up for a few minutes in the wind tunnel! What a blast that is!

If your first video is that good I can imagine what comes next. Good job!

Hey All! Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback on the video! Incentive to keep going, and I appreciate that.

Tom, Roy took a photo of the wind tunnel. I’ll take a closer look when we return.


Next up... Nogales... :-)
