Hang Gliding

I got to make a dream come true today when I went hang gliding near Lake Okeechobee in Florida at Florida Ridge Air Sports Park. Since Florida doesn’t have any mountains to jump off of, a small plane pulled us up to 2,000 feet where we then glided above farm fields and pastures with the big lake visible on the horizon.

It was quite a thrilling experience very comparable to skydiving, which I did 15 years ago. I can’t wait to go back and already have friends ready to take flight too. Check out the video below (make sure to click HD in the settings and view fullscreen):
