Yesterday, I got the opportunity to cross something off of my “Bucket List”.
Thanks to Hunter and Lady H I got to go up in a glider.
I got up at 7AM and drove the two hours to Sylacauga, Alabama. It was a rainy day but we were optimistic that it would clear off. We chatted and compared Blackberry Apps and headed to lunch, after lunch we went to the airport and after a couple hours it cleared enough to go up.
The video below has the first part of the first flight, From my seat in the cockpit. I have footage from the ground too but it isnt yet captured.
Give it a look and I will write my thoughts in the next post, along with more video.
