Tennessee Treetoppers have a great site. I wish my flying experience there was better when I went for Team Challenge competition last year. I hope to make another attempt... Gotta see that valley from high above .

#HangGliding #Tennessee #teamchallenge
Flying season was progressing nicely. New sites, new challenges. But I haven't even thought about any sort of competition, especially not while flying a Falcon…. I don't remember already what made me look. Probably people discussing who signed up this year. But I checked the rules for Tennessee ...

competition can easily cloud my judgment.... It was fun... now that I survived it :-)

Competition. Morningside was celebrating its 40th anniversary on Columbus day weekend. Plenty of activities were planned including some friendly competitions. I am not into competition much, but I decided to give it a try. The first one was a spot landing competition, and one can always use more ...

Great composition, Max!  Love the translucency of the water, very subtle.

My longest flight to date 3h38m - Labor day 2014 at West Rutland.

This was a pure joy of flying. Days like these make all the wait worthwhile.

I spent Labor Day weekend at Morningside. I got there Saturday afternoon hoping for a tow or two, but it was too windy for any kind of flying. Some people went to West Rutland, and it was pretty windy there as well. A few people who launched earlier did fly, but reported rather rough conditions ...

I really wish those of us in New England would permanently stay on daylight savings time. Laterally, we are in Atlantic time; but some dimwit warped the boundary to Eastern time instead.

A well-lit morning is wasted on the vast majority of U.S. citizens, who wake up indoors (to artificial illumination), scurry off to work or school in vehicles that are also artificially illuminated, and don't get to smell any roses until lunch - or perhaps our coffee break or late-morning recess.

More light later in the day makes it possible for children to play and explore more. It makes it easier for adults to do all the things that need to get done after work lets out but before it's time to make dinner.

The most oft-cited reason I hear for "standard" time during the winter is that children can walk to school in the morning when it is light out. Fantasy! The bureaucratic nanny-state around here will sue parents for dereliction of duty if they dare to let Junior walk to school. Nooo, here, everybody must take the bus - an artificially illuminated bus.
