More Birdman photos and video.

My Worthing host and official Birdman helper/photographer Michelle got chatting to Sara, wife of the flying crocodile, and they were stood together taking photos of our “flights”. Thanks to Sara, who forwarded these fantastic pictures:-

And here are Worthing Town Council’s videos of the fun from both afternoons. (Note: Compared to many of the “flyers” who took amazing running leaps, my sedate launch from a standing start looks a bit timid, but have you ever tried running in flippers?):-

I am writing this now in bed at 6am at my host Val’s house in Colorado Springs! Yesterday was a very long day. It is quite disorienting to wake up in Worthing on the south coast of England, and go to bed in Colorado 22 hours later. From Worthing I drove Martin’s car back up to London, got the tube to Heathrow, flew to Denver, caught the shuttle bus to the long-term parking, then drove the RV south to Colorado Springs, arriving here at abot 10pm Colorado-time, the equivalent of 5am the next morning back in England. Trains, planes and automobiles!!

I think by the time I got to Val and Brenda’s house and met them, my meeting-new-people skills had just about at the end of their tether, and we only chatted for a short while before I made my excuses and headed for bed. I managed a good eight hours sleep though, and am going to try for a few more hours right now, to get firmly back onto US time again.
