Top Texas Hang Gliding Spots
You might think that you need a mountain to hang glide. Nope. Just need a rope, and something fast.
I'm pretty sure the "Powers that be" flip a switch in our DNA when ever the population gets a little out of hand and we're all suddenly looking to test the boundaries of our insanity.
One thing that's truly insane is hang gliding. When I lived in Wyoming there was a hang gliding platform on the mountain behind the city. I never jumped off of it, because I didn't have the proper paperwork proving I was nuts. I thought that I wouldn't hear about hang gliding again, now that I live in Texas. I was wrong. It seems you can hang glide in Texas, as long as you've got someone that will treat you like a kite.
P.S. It seems the World Record for Distance in a hang glider was set in Texas. 473 miles. It seems the "up drafts" are bigger in Texas as well.
