And I think I may even have been the one who asked for this....... What a feelling of power
But just to add a little glider content I'd like to ask if anyone besides me finds a lot of parrallels between gliding and fishing.
In fishing you toss your lure into the water not knowing what is down there. Wtih gliding we lauch our models into air that holds many secrets.
With fishing you sense a bite and try to set the hook to trap the fish. With gliding we react to jostles of the wings and try to hook the lift by centering our models.
With fishing you play the fish to achieve the most sport using light lines and knowing when to give or take. With gliding we learn to play the thermal so as to get the best climb rate and circlling, widening, tighenting all to center in the core or, for light stuff, to grab as much as we can out of the small, soft bubble.
In both gliding and fishing we both hold long skinny rods in front of us.....
In both gliding and fishing we both know the joy of hooking that elusive prey and getting the most play from it.
But at least with gliding we DON"T GET WET...........
Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Be sure to try the nachos....
Free flighters go that extra mile...... then we walk back and do it again.... and again..... and again....
