I do. I think the problem still is low fuel efficiency. Difficult to carry enough to fly for more than a few minutes.
A modern version is that you use water pumped by a jerkski (sorry, jetski) to keep you aloft: http://www.gizmag.com/zapata-flyboard-jet-pack-watersport-boots/20772/. If you have a good enough water supply, this would be possible. You would also keep your vegetables thoroughly watered, right down to the bedrock. It's how Noah made the Grand Canyon, you know.
