I was on a "recharge my batteries" trip to Honolulu and did several things on my bucket list. Gliding was one. The gentleman who picked me up was so nice, good humor, pleasant and treated me to a stop at a nearby beach since we had time before my gliding appointment.
Met the woman at check in and she was salt- of -the -earth nice. My pilot, as it turns out, is a neighbor of mine and we never knew each other till we met at the plane. It was overcast and had been raining but skies cleared enough to soar. He was not able to keep the plane up the full 30 minutes that I paid for, so landed and declared to another pilot, "that was junk ride. Can you take her up again?" He did, and we were luckier with the winds and thermals or whatever keeps us aloft. He showed me different spots than I saw earlier and we landed after 30 minutes or so. It was fantastic to feel like a bird might feel. The sights were stunning and throw in a rainbow! These folks rock. Do this!
