One of our favorite things to do when flying to MYF is taking the crew car (we always use Gibbs) and driving to Torrey Pines Gliderport to watch the hang-gliders/ paragliders/ RC gliders. It's a gorgeous setting and very cool to watch those guys fly. I got so enthusiastic about it that I've decided to start some paragliding lessons myself. Yet another hobby I don't have time for! :D

Brian, we have a saying in Hang Gliding: No frame no brain! Hang Gliders have rigid bones (read a frame) and para gliders maintain their shape by air pressure alone. I flew hang Gliders for 30+ years and never had a "collapse". Check out hang gliding! Duel instructional "rides" can be had at several sites around the L.A. area.
Now back to your regular scheduled thread... ;-)

Marc, do you still hang-glide? We should meet up sometime. Or better yet, fly down there together and hang out. =) Email me so we're not hijacking this thread. LOL
