I'm sorry that the video posting system isn't quite as obvious as it might be.



You type it in with just the ID number between the "youtube" tags like this:

Sometimes I think it takes a little practice to get it down pat :srofl:

Nice video Tommy,
We should make a new check off for your rating card: RFZ = Restricted Flight Zone.
Keeping it above the cliff and below the cloud.

I too struggled with the video posts at first. After calling Bob K.
I then would “Preview,” my attempt and if it didn’t show up in “Preview,” I knew that it wouldn’t “Post,” correctly either. Next I would back space the incorrect attempt and try something else until I got it to show up in “Preview.” Then it was safe to “Post.”
This would hide most of my ineptitude from the general public with the exception of my chronic spelling disease.
I’ve developed an exercise to bolster my self image.
I stand in front of the bathroom mirror and repeat over and over,
“THE WHOLE WORD THINKS YOU ARE INTELLEGENT!”

I’m told that if a lie is repeated often enough it will be believed.
Wish me luck.

The Carolina’s draw good people.
The great people of the Carolina’s has stuck with me since my travels from Ft. Benning Georgia to Pennsylvania then on to Minnesota during my thirty day leave before shipping out to Viet Nam in 1969. I had a tow bar fabricated at a weld shop in Columbus, GA to pull my wife’s car behind my 67 Chevy convertible.

The tow bar started to pull apart at the welds somewhere in North or South Carolina. I stopped into a weld shop to have it repaired. Not only did the guy weld the broken welds, to my dismay, he redid all the other weld$ while I wa$ $tanding there watching him. When the guy finished he told me there would be no charge since he wasn’t about to let the fellow that fabricated this tow bar give the welding profession a bad name. This guy along with my dad also being in the welding profession may have played a part in my taking up the welding profession when I left the Service.
Have to go now. My beeper just went off. It’s time for my session in front of the bathroom mirror.

Here dear, hold my beer & have no fear.... for I'm going to attempt a video post :shock:



This is my private slope launch ( Alligator Rock ) that my wife & I purchased in 1986. I paved
a concrete walkway in the backyard that's 6 feet wide & 50 feet long. At the end it drops off 4
feet and the mountain slopes about 40 degrees to the 3:1 LZ. I was first to soar Sauratown Mtn
in 1981. Our home was one of only five on the ridge. I made my 8 hour 35 minute flight from this takeoff.

When someone ask's me "isn't that dangerous.... I reply.....

Tommy,

Looks like you got the video thing down.

Great looking flying site :thumbup:

Do you ever have HG pilots trying to move in with you there? 8-)

I really try to plan ahead.
USHGA life member in 1980 for $250. Now it's $99 a year :shock:
Bought the HG site in 1986, sold it in '96 for double the money & kept a life right to fly it ;)
Don't maintain it or pay taxes on it either!
Built my own hangar beside the pasture for my little 52 hp bush plane that I bought on line...
I have a pvt ticket & light sport repairman certificate too.
Just sold my sailplane because it was so heavy to rig. Sold both my topless wings too.
I like HG'n the WW Attack Falcon 2 better :thumbup:

That's great! Sounds like you are doing all the good :clap:

Can the Coyote tow HG?

I could probably tow a hang glider with my Coyote since it has flaps.
But I don't need the added stress & responsibility of all that at my age.
My hangar is 40 foot square and the door is 32 foot wide.
