Welcome to Lilo's World
Went to Llanberis mountain film festival recently with trish and stayed in a nice B&B in Nant peris.
Our favourite films were "Cranked Revolve" about really radical mountain biking off cliff edges and over high level runways/ramps doing loops and gravity defying feats etc.
and "Birdman of the Karakorum" which is John Sylvester's paragliding film in the himalayas, catching thermals with his tandem partner who was filming the whole thing. and was scraping the cliff edges trying to find lift into unknown places. flying around 25,000 feet.
I was fortunate enough to speak to him at the show having previously met him at the paragliding world championships, Verbier swiss.
