Well, I sure have missed the old gliding days , and was wandering whatever happened to the old Alaska Skysailors Club from the 70's. It was very active and I was curious if anyone else remembers the early days. Wow has this equipment and gliders come a long way from the old 3.5 to 4.0 glide ratio days. Soaring, ridge, thermal, and Wave, took alot of work because of it and had to be be pretty significant to stay up for any period of time. In Alaska it was not all groundskimming and Mountain glides. Anyway hope you all enjoy the history of the early days in Alaska and the pics. Is there someway to archive this into another spot on the site for easier views and posting? God Bless, Merry Christmas.
