1. Tell us about the first airplane ride you took and do you like to fly?
I think my first one was around 11 and we went to New York (not city but rural western). And no, I absolutely hate flying. I sort of like eating in airports but I hate the actual flying aspect. The idea of plummeting to my death is not appealing. And yes, I know it is relatively safe but still.
2. Have you ever gone hang gliding and was it on the beach with boat power, or from a mountain with only the wind and your body?
No, I have not but I do think it would be cool!
3. Have you ever gone kite flying and with whom?
We have done it a few times with the kids, never with too much success. We have a good pic of Ash carrying Isaac and sort of hoping the wind picked up the kite. Either way, I know this was a fun time.
4. Experimental aircraft is quite popular as a hobby where Terri lives. Have you or anyone you know ever constructed a flying machine and did you ride in it?
No, that’s really not something I know about. The only sort of flying anything I am semi-familiar with is when Ash got into flying RC helicopters and then drones.
5. Another big hobby around Lakeland is Radio Controlled Airplanes. Have you ever seen them flying or tried your hand at it?
Ha! See above. I was not very good at it but I’d like to try the drone again.
6. Please tell us something about your week.
I may have had a bit of an anxious moment last night, at like, 12:15 am. Ash and I actually went up to bed early then we were talking for a bit but then I realized just how much stuff is about to change for me starting next week. And then, I have all these other things set up around it like the boys in flag football, Dakota’s girl scouts, my concerts – 2 in one week – and then Ash goes out of town for 6 days. So it all sort of hit me at once and I panicked. Not all out freak out, but like, quiet wonderment at the overwhelming nature of life. Surprisingly, I was not tired when I woke up, considering I only got maybe 5 hours.
