Power Paragliding In A Bath Tub

The Tub

The Tub

On-going project around a normal bath tub. Sailed 800k alone on the Amazon river, so now plan next May to power paraglide this bath and me from the source of the Amazon river in Peru. Arequipa volcano El misti 19000 ft and follow the river 4000 miles to finish on the coast near Belin in Brazil.

Power paragliding is the only way for me to finish this challenge from above the water. If interested in story, more info available. Not a mad joke! If you google my name (Robert Dowling sail). I'm open to any advice other than "don't do it you are mad!"

Bigger picture here with the river children. I am very motivated, spent $35000 over last four years on this darn bath :-) See also amazonquest.net. No man is an Island.

Yet another 'well thats different'!

Thanks Robert. At first glance wondered whether your submission was at all relevant. Since you intend to power paraglide in that tub, I guess it is! All the best for your unusual quest, and hope you raise plenty for the orphanage you are helping.
