    You should try for some real high altitude. That way you get to use both!

    Still very much diving - What set me off was a diet my wife Kim got me on - She started and I followed 4 weeks later. Already lost 20lbs+ and Hang Gliding is a great way to keep up the exercise...

    Actually started Hang Gliding in NZ - Flying all the local sites around Wellington. Just a simple nasal cannula and a small O2 bottle for altitudes greater than 13,000'... Where I have been once before in New Mexico.

    That thing looks very cool. Never done it, but I had some thoughts about paragliding.

    Cool, Dwayne. When I was young, I've thought of doing sky-diving too. But, now, age is catching up - I'd say, so mind is willing, but body is weak. Lol...

    Cheers

    I have always thought about hang gliding, but just never got around to trying. However I will think about you the next time I am hanging upside down at the top of a loop in my Citabria! Kind of amazing how many divers are also into flying in one form or another.

    A paraglider is certainly easier to haul around and somewhat cheaper. Just make sure you have a harness with very good back protection.
