Up Up and Away

Last Christmas Erin bought me a day of hang gliding lessons. Today I get to go! Thus fulfilling a life list item I’ve had since I was twelve years old and biking ten miles to the library every few weeks to check out the book on hang gliding. That book led me to eventually get my pilot’s license when I was in my mid-twenties. But as much as I love flying powered planes, I’ve always had a particular fascination for hanging under a big kite and drifting through the sky.

These first lessons will probably be more of the “run down the hill holding the contraption and try not to fall/crash” but I should still get a little air. I can’t wait!

Oh, and courtesy Patrick:
