So you mean there’s no engine?? Yes, sir, that’s correct. ISSUE: Glider Plane.
Hmmmmm a plane with NO engine, sounds like a GREAT idea.
Let’s do it.
That’s basically how the convo went with the lady at the front desk of the Glider Plane Club called Skylark North Glider Flight School. Which is right next to the RV Park I am currently holed up at. She asked me the flight package I wanted and then I was booked in. When I woke up the next morning I was giddy with anticipation of flying over the mountains in a Glider Plane. I smoked a big ol joint and then strolled over to the private airport and got some awesome footage before even flying. I walked in and the lady with her insanely massive fake eyebrows asked if I was ready to go. “YES” I replied with some gusto in my voice.
There was no form to fill out or sign, I hadn’t paid yet and I am now walking towards this glider plane laying on its wing on the runway. I thought to myself……. Well, at least if I crash and burn to death I won’t have to pay for it.
What happened next was a thrill of a lifetime. We went up to almost 6000 feet, pulled some G’s and I got to experience “weightlessness”. They even let me pull the lever to release the tow plane which was cool and took over the controls for a minute. It really was a huge rush and the views were so incredible.
If you have never been on a Glider Plane and have the opportunity to do so…. do it. It ranks right up there with the other adrenaline-junky crazy things I have done. You only live once and there is basically nothing I won’t do unless it involves SNAKES!
Happy gliding kids.
