I keep telling myself that I’m going to fill out a dream journal every morning… but the hell I will! That very fact has held me back for too long, so I’m just going to enter stuff in when I can and avoid making something so simple into such an ordeal. This approach inspired by Rocket Surgery Made Easy!
On with the dream! I have many reoccurring dreams, as does any one else but I am fortunate enough to have a really cool one! In many of my dreams I do this thing called tracking, its something you do in free fall to propel yourself forward. It can be seen in many BASE jumping videos; with your legs spread, hands to your side, body arched with your head looking down, and some serious skill you can actually fly your body. Though I think wingsuiting is cool, tracking is way cooler! Nothing is more profound than flying with your body like that! In some videos skilled trackers can almost match the glide of wingsuiters! In my dreams I am often a tracking bad ass… If I were to trip on a steep mountain slope. No prob! I’ll just do some proximity tracking until I land in a lake down below. Very dream like, but very cool. My dream last night was a hoot, first lets set the scene. I was coming out of my high school(which was ran by my current college staff of course) to get something from my car. As a paraglider pilot(in real life)I am always monitoring the environment and seeing how air is acting, I’m looking for lift mostly. I realized in my dream that the parking lot was freaking on right then and with no hesitation dove into it assuming the position to track. It worked and I has so much fun! It was of course silly but none the less I felt like I was coring thermals with just my body and the feeling was warm and magical. I hope to track again tonight when I fall asleep!
