Chris Page flew TFL yesterday morning. Chris has been coming to the Big Bend every year for the past 17 years to ride motorcycles with his buddies. He has been a paramotor pilot for 12 years and has even produced two documentaries on the subject - Into the Wind (2006) and Into The Wind II (2011). Nice to have some time to hang out with such an experienced pilot to inspire my efforts. 68,74,41,0,B
Been meaning to get some new TFL merch available for awhile now. What has really been putting me off is the hassle of keeping track of orders and packaging and shipping them out. Decided to explore the online options of print and ship on demand. Going this route cuts into my profit margin a bit but I don't expect to get rich off merch anyway (but I do need to pay for my "affordable" healthcare). Trying out galloree for a test run - they are located in my old hometown of Charlotte, NC. Had an image of Chupa rendered as line art from fiverr and got the finished product emailed back to me overnight for only ten bucks. Did the rest of the graphics myself and uploaded the artwork and ordered a coffee mug and Tshirt from them to see how they look. If all goes well, people can just order directly once I set up my store there and Galloree handle it all. Working on a Ben design as well. I won't entirely be cutting my friend Rick from Bullshirtz out of the loop as I expect to do more screen printing through him for local sales. 63,71,39,0,B
