The wind looked pretty good for today's Second Sunday (November 13, 2022), but I only saw one hang glider flying.

When I arrived, there was no "greeting party". I could just walk right in. Amazing.

Compare that to the "line in the sand" that Gabe Jebb (backed by Robin Marien) had drawn in July of 2015:

That's at least one improvement obtained by calling their "Go To Jail" bluffs back in 2014 and 2015.

The lone hang glider pilot took off shortly after I arrived:

The tandem fees are now $175 for a paragliding flight and $225 for a hang gliding flight:

I don't suppose that helps people to choose hang gliding and have to pay another $50.   :roll:

Of course, that doesn't include what seems to be a nearly mandatory tip:

I assume the "Just glad you made it" tip is what you pay them to have survived the flight without a helicopter ride to the hospital.
