This is my secret dream.

To pilot a lawn chair 3 miles up.  I would love to…seriously.  A "Hat Tip" to Tom Herzog, where I first saw it on his blog back in July.  It’s the true story of the "Lawn Chair Pilots."

The original "Lawn Chair Pilot" was Larry Walters back in 1982.

  • Larry’s official website is here, complete with news articles, pictures & audio.
  • The Snopes (urban legends) research team found the story was essentially true here.
  • His wikipedia entry is here.

The next generation of "Lawn Chair Pilot" was Kent Couch.  (No, I’m not joking about his name.)  🙂

  • Kent’s official website is here, complete with photos & video.
  • The Fox News report is here.
  • His wikipedia entry is here.

I’m willing to be the 3rd generation!
