I soloed a plane like shown below on March 30th, 1945.

in Mazatlan
Kayaking the
North Carolina

The photo on the left shows me landing on the beach at Mazatlan, Mexico after parasailing out over the Pacific Ocean. It was a fun trip while up but the landing was kinda scary. I was afraid my legs wouldn't hold me up upon landing --- but they did.

The photo above and on the right, shows Jim Grove, Jackie Taylor and me taking off on a trip down the Nantahala River in North Carolina. The river had some class 3 falls but, all in all, was an easy trip. The Ocoee River, near by, is a different stroy. It was used for recent Olympic kayaking events. Needless to say, I didn't attempt to run the Ocoee but Jim and Jackie did and had to abort before the end of the run --- just too rough.
