1.Get a circular piece of wood and grill a hole big enough to vit a tube through it!
2.Get a thick black blankety thing and drape it over the sides.
3.Get a leafblower or another blower thing and stick the tube in the hole in the wood and the turn it on. HOLD ON TIGHT !
WAHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! "

"This kind of craft is actually a standard of early scifi stories. Back in 1964 Jack Vance had two such vehicles in his book The Star King: "Gersen hired a car, a small surface slider, and skidded south over the broad white turnpike, the inevitable dust puffing up behind him." "Gersen dressed himself in an airsuit, left the ship. Opening the forward hatch, he winched down the little platform flyer,... set out...skimming low to the ground,the thin atmosphere keening over the windshield.""
