Yap. I am not kidding. Two training sessions ago Herman had his PPG epiphany and from then on he is unstoppable. Last night he simply flew his ass offf. I have never ever seen someone do more then 15 flights in one session. Herman did 20 – then I stopped counting.

Graham came to get new prop for his machine. This one produces way more thrust. At one pint, his dog started to pee on Herman’s glider… it was very funny to watch Herman with the helmet still on trying to chase away this peeing dog… ha ha ha
When I was ready to leave, I got in the car and tried to turn key in the ignition but nothing happened I couldn’t turn the key at all. I have tried to wiggle the shifter, the parking brake, put my foot on the brake pedal, hit the key, I squirted WD-40 into the keyhole but nothing helped. I was stuck. Luckily Herman was still around so I thought maybe he can give me a ride home. I looked in the rearview mirror and I noticed him walking towards my car – great I thought, he noticed I have a car trouble. He stuck his head into the window and said Andre my battery is dead, do you have starting cables? Crap, so we have one car that can’t move at all and another one that has a dead battery – unbelievable!
Well, we got lucky, we were able to push Herman’s car close to mine. Then we used my battery to start his car and then he drove me home. I was up early in the morning to move my trailer using my friend’s car and then I had my car towed into a dealership.
By 3 o’clock car was fixed and I was back up and running. Crazy last 12 hrs!
