Ep. 375: Paragliding - Vol-Biv - Red Bull X-Alps and More - Nick Neynens
Paragliding! This one has been on our adventure bucket list for some time now. But can you imagine using your paraglider as your transportation method to new overnight camping locations and putting a multi-day trip together? That would be sweet! Nick Neynens is on the show today to explain what this "Vol-Biv" sport is and what it's like to soar up in the air like an eagle with the intention of landing to camp each day. Nick also talks about the Red Bull X-Alps which is an event where paragliders race across the Alps by foot and paraglider traveling a straight-line distance of more than 600 miles! Vol-Biv demands paragliding skills as well as physical endurance. For you fans of flying, this one is not to miss!
