These are the various “Enterprise” paramotorhomes. Life’s short, live high, leave people better than you found ’em!

Powered paragliding has provided a life-changing interest in flying with mankind’s most portable aircraft. So much so that on December 31, 2001 I bought a motor home with the intent of traveling the country in two years. It would be a test—if I liked it, I’d keep traveling. Obviously, I liked it. Two motorhomes later, the trek continues, now with Tim, my human for life.

The original Enterprise is pictured below in front of “Enterprise B”, a Gulfstream BT Cruiser. It sleeps the same number of people but has twice the room and much greater “lingering” capacity due to larger tanks. Solar panels reduce most generator use and an inverter powers the AC outlets to feed the sprawling gadget collection.

As an aside, if anyone asks what goes in its lavatory, you must answer: The captain’s log. Sorry, blame that one on Dave in Panama city.
