    Might buy a hang glider

    Some chick I know inherited a hang glider from her ex who abandoned it on her farm. She says she’s willing to sell it to me. Or she might have to toss it out.

    Ive gone hang gliding once in my life and it was amazing. I wasn’t the pilot though; I was a tandem passenger. But oh my god it was incredible to go flying in such a maneuverable motorless aircraft!

    if I did buy it. I’d have to take a training course and figure out how to work it the right way. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do again.

    Here’s a photo. (With a snowy mountain in the horizon)

    her options are to sell it or toss it?

    sounds odd

    if she's willing to toss it she should just give it away

    i try to avoid deals that dont involve the real owners

        Ah I would love to try hang gliding. Actually I think I decided I preferred the idea of a paraglider but I don't remember why.

        Sidenote.. When I see new thread titles I try and guess who the OP is before looking and I was correct on this one

          I do the guess the OP by the title thing for the Piranha Pit only. I'm on all a roll so far.

        Sounds cool. See if you can find a way to steal it from her. That way you get it for free.

          I like paragliders too, there's a little more substance around if things go bad. Might be nice to have a small backup engine.

          A crosswind might screw up a good day even worse hang gliding, it seems anyway. But I'm no expert haha.
          My luck, I'd end up briefly feeling like Wile E. Coyote.

            If you tape it too the back of your car, it would make an awesome spoiler

                Just meet her near the top of a cliff, just to "take a look at it", and then when she looks away, you're gone.

                  In the ravine most likely. Seems a hobby that shouldn't be done on your own, unless really well prepared and with enough experience

                A dangerous sport if you don't know what you doing.
