My love of the sport of Soaring

I first earned my Private Single Engine Land pilot rating in the early 1970s.
Until a couple of years ago I had not flown for about 21 years and was missing it.
Back when I was about 16 years old I had taken a couple of flights in a glider and liked it.
While stationed in Hawaii with the Navy in the early 70s I went up once more in a glider at Dillingham.
A couple of years ago I was speaking with a childhood friend who had taken up the soaring sport several years ago.
I became quite interested and decided to give it a try.
To make a long story short... I fell in love with it and earned my Glider add-on rating in the fall of 2013!
I hope to share with you some of my photos and videos from time to time.
