Me flying a hydro-powered jetpack

I’m backed up on the blog.  A lot happens, quickly, and I should share more things from my curious and wonderful life with you fine internew browsers.  Below, check out me on a jetpack.

This is Tim Pickens‘s creation.  It works by condensing the thrust on the output of a jetski through a 300’ tube that channels it through two nosels.  Rotate the handle bars to change direction.  Thrust is controlled by the jetski.  Awesome lake toy.  And a really fun day.   Rocket science in a bikini with fighter jets in the background:  Huntsville, Alabama.
