Fulfill Your Jetpack Dreams In Lindstrom

August 25, 2019


COURSE IN THE COUNTRY, THAT’S MY VOTE. THERE’S A SPOT FOR YOU TO WRITE IN IF YOU WANT. SPEAKING OF GOLF. PART OF THE OSCAR DAYS IN LINDSTROM, THEY’RE HOLDING A GOLF TOURNAMENT THIS MORNING, A CLASSIC CAR SHOW, BEACH PARTY FROM TEN TO FIVE. GRAND DAY PARADE TONIGHT AT SIX AND THEN A STREET DANCE, AND FESTIVAL, A CHANCE TO FLY. MAYBE NOT THE WAY YOU ENVISIONED, THOUGH. THIS INVOLVES STRAPPING ON A HIGH POWERED WATER JET PACK. MARK WALKER THE PRESIDENT OF JET BACK MIDWEST, SAYS THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE ENTIRE MIDWEST WHERE YOU CAN WALK ON WATER LIKE NATALIE AND I DID. A LOT OF PEOPLE EXPLAIN IT AS A COMBINATION OF SKY DIVING, SCUBA DIVING, AND JET SKIING, BEING ABLE TO FLY WHERE YOU WANT, HOW HIGH YOU’RE GOING, HOW FAST YOU’RE GOING. AM I SQUEEZING YOUR HEAD? JUST MY EARS A LITTLE BIT. THIS IS SERIOUS BUSINESS. JUST TRY AND WIGGLE YOUR FINGERS A LITTLE BIT. JUST RELAX. LEAN TO YOUR LEFT HEADED OUT TO THE LAKE. GOOD JOB, MIKE. THANK YOU. HE DID REALLY GOOD FOR HIS FIRST TIME. THAT’S WHAT WE LIKE TO HAPPEN. I THINK IT’S JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT, ANOTHER WAY TO HAVE FUN ON THE WATER. YOU KNOW, LOOK AT ALL THE CRAZY STUFF WE COME UP WITH MINNESOTA WITH THE POLAR PLUNGE. JUST A WAY TO SPEND A FUN TIME. I’M NERVOUS. WERE YOU NERVOUS. WOULDN’T BE NORMAL IF YOU WEREN’T NERVOUS. YES, I WAS NERVOUS FOR THE FIRST TIME. ALL RIGHT. I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE. BRING THAT THROTTLE DOWN JUST A TOUCH. THAT WAS SUPER FUN. WHOA. NAILED IT. THAT WAS LIKE NOTHING I HAVE EVER DONE BEFORE. YEAH. TAKE A BREAK HERE. WELL, YOU CAN SEE WE OBVIOUSLY HAD A TON OF FUN. I’M STILL DELIGHTED JUST WATCHING THE VIDEO PLAY BACK FROM YESTERDAY. IT WAS SO COOL. I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS, LIKE, OKAY, WE’RE GETTING OURSELVES INTO ANOTHER SHENANIGAN, THIS WAS REALLY AWESOME. SO IT’S ACTUALLY, I THINK IT’S EASIER THAN I EXPECTED AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT REALLY HELPED A LOT WAS THAT MARK AND JASON WHO WERE THERE HELPING US, THEY WERE ABLE TO TALK TO US THROUGH OUR HELMET. THEY HAD A WALKY TALKY. THEY WOULD COACH AND BE LIKE MOVE YOUR ARMS AN INCH. THAT’S WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW SUBTLE THE MOVEMENTS HAVE TO BE, AND YOUR LEGS ARE GOING LIKE THIS, AND YOU HAVE TO LET THEM BE LIMP, AND YOU WERE OUT OF THE WATER WITHIN A MINUTE. AND YOU WERE OUT IN TWO OR THREE. IT TOOK ME A COUPLE TRIES BUT FINALLY GOT OUT. A LOT OF FUN. NOT CHEAP, BUT MAYBE STILL SOMETHING YOU WANT TO INVEST IN. PACKAGES START AT 59 — 159 FOR 15 MINUTES OF FLYING TIME. AND ALL THE PRICING INFORMATION IS AT WCCO.COM/LINKS, EVEN IF YOU DO IT ONCE IN YOUR LIFE, IT’S TOTALLY WORTH IT. I THINK SO, YEAH, THE CARL OSCAR DAYS IS ONE OF THE FOUR THINGS TO DO TODAY. THEN AGAIN TOMORROW UNTIL 4:00. FOR MORE ON WHAT ALL THERE IS TO SEE AND DO THERE, GO TO WCCO.COM/LINKS.
