This week we talk with an adventurer who recently drove more than 6,000 miles in 28 days visiting 14 states and flying in 11 of them.

Whitney Horky is a paramotorer - she tours the sky from something she has described as a “glorified lawn mower and a bedsheet.”

When she found herself “less employed than usual” this fall she packed up her paramotor and traveled state to state on a solo “recommended trail” flying with other pilots/hobbyists she met along the way.

Whitney tells us about her trip, what it’s like up there and what she thinks about when she is flying on this week’s episode.
