@codyscapes called me the other day with a once-a-decade story regarding a massive cock up by @ryandyar. I’ve personally witnessed many of his massive failures, but this one was Fruit Loops coming out your nose hysterical. *I don’t eat Fruit Loops.. I’m more of a Barbara’s Shredded Spoonful’s kind of guy, but if you’re going to spit cereal out your nose, you damned sure want it to be fruity.
At any rate, RyRy’s big concern (and rightly so), was that I was going to post the humiliation on IG). IN A HEARTBEAT, as they say. I was ready to pounce, but was just strapping in to go fly, so it would have to wait.
During the flight, I was literally giddy about regaling my legion of 18 followers with the story, but while composing what I was going to say in my mind, the hair on my back (which, thanks for that God.... I really love having hair starting to grow in odd places as I get older) started to curl.
I was taken back to this lovely area in the San Juan’s, and a GREAT trip from a few years ago with @ryandyar , his lovely wife @candacedyar , and @codyscapes. It was on this trip I was introduced to drones. This was my first opportunity to see one fly. It was also my first opportunity to see one fly away and never come back. 😂😂. But before it disappeared, I was given a crash course in the dastardly potential of drones in the hands of someone evil ( @ryandyar ). As you can see here; there are no trees. When *ahem* nature calls, the best you can do is find a large rock over a hill, dig a hole, and let the breeze in while you squat (in my 6’5” case) awkwardly. I was mid balance when I heard the buzzing. And then it rose above the rock in front of me like some damned Apache Helicopter stalking a terrorist. My “movement” was being recorded in full HD. A long slow drone circle made sure to get every angle and dimple. His timing was perfect, because there was no “stopping short”. It was then that I knew. That footage would forever keep me from truly being able to humiliate @ryandyar. Until someone ninja’s his HD. At which time I’ll GLADLY tell the story.
