what a great evening i had. for the first time i took the jet Luge out and showed the public. i took it to Sydney Speedway in Parramatta and not one person knew what it was. others would look at the board, then back at me, and back at the board, then just walk away shaking their heads with a grin.... i think they knew.
once people started to understand what it was, and what i am trying to do, they laughed and told me how mad i am. but, strait after that, it was followed with a sincere good luck and a hand shake. this is one of the things i like about living in Australia. it's the mate-ship you share with you fellow man. even if they think your crazy for attempting something dangerous, i think they understand it's something that is bigger than that one event and yourself and genuinely want to wish you luck.
i started one of the engines a couple of times and spent the night trying to keep people clear of the jet wash. by the end of the night i couldn't keep them away so the resulting video is what you get. it was the last run for the night.
