Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

My favorite Disneyland ride is Mr. Toad's Wild Ride which is, well, about what it sounds like. My brother John went hang gliding recently and had a flight that fits the description of a Mr. Toad's. Below is the GPS map of the flight with the color of the track indicating speed of descent/ascent. Check out the solid red lines... at one point he was going *up* at 1,500 feet per minute. Wow!

Yes, I'm going to fly at the same site in a couple of weeks, and I hope that I don't get quite that much excitement.
