Default RE: Who has taught themself?

This fall marked 6 years since I taught myself to fly. Bought an LT-40, and headed to the clubs new flying field. It was a gorgeous day, and my friend was going to meet me to take it up the first time and trim her out for me. As I was taxiing around, waiting, the LT-40 suddenly became airborne. I throttled back, and let it land in some tall grass on the other side of an irrigation ditch. Luckily there was no damage. When my friend showed up, he did take it up for me, but i finished the flight and landed. He left, and I had 4 more flights that day. Been hard core addicted to building and flying ever since.
