    Lol, well Check does have enough for us, and 6 spares, so it doesn't matter if we wipe out on one or two :rofl:

    I want one!!! But they don't even list the price of the 2003 Hoverwing XR (the one in the video) which makes me think it might be prohibitively expensive...

    I want one!!!

    I'm in! Trip to Canada on hovercrafts...sounds fun! Can you imagine the sight of a group of a dozen or so people driving those over a snowy field or across a river? I bet there'd be alien sighting reports in the newspaper the next day! :rofl:

    Do they come in more colors than just yellow and blue? I want a red one! :biggrin:

    Okay Moonbear, we'll get you any color you want but when we cross Canada we all have to dress up like Star Wars characters. Just for effect. :biggrin:

    I've watched this video about twenty times now. :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2:

    I want I want I want... :tongue2: The plans are cheap.

    Okay...as long as I get to be Princess Leah!! :biggrin: I always wanted to do those loopy braid things on the side of my head (when Star Wars first came out, I tried, but my hair was too slippery to stay put that way). :rofl:

    ooooh, I want a baby hovercraft!!!!!

    My friend in Italy that recently went to that remote island with the Romanian Bikini models to shoot that calendar took a hovercraft. The problem is, if the sea is rough you're stranded until the sea is calm enough to return to mainland. :surprised

    I still think they would have a better effect skimming over snowy fields. I'll wear a white Princess Leah outfit to blend in...on my red hovercraft... :uhh: ...nevermind, I'll make that a red dress! :biggrin:

    I'm the wookie; well, unless Greg wants to come [He wouldn't even have to dress up!] In that case I would want to be Vador...of course, sometimes I make sounds like R2D2...
