Hang gliding

Well, after a brief two decades of thinking about it, I finally got around to learning to hang glide this summer. It enthralls me. When I was in Los Angeles last week, my brother and I went hang gliding, and I had my first big solo, from 2,300 feet. Below are some media from the event.

The last 2 minutes of the flight (it was about 15 minutes long):

Hey, with your hair like that, you look like that FTD florist guy? What's his name? Mercury? Squid

That's funny.

Hey, I'm just glad to still have some hair left, not matter what it look like!
