Hang gliding over Lake Pepin
I interviewed Dave from Eagle Hang Gliding in Lake City and he invited me to go on a tandem hang gliding flight with him. He launches the glider from a cable on the back of his boat, flies over Lake Pepin, and then lands in the water on pontoons he has attached to his hang glider. He has created an incredible system and the flight is a new way of seeing the Mississippi River valley. I'll be writing two articles about this - one on how he created the equipment necessary to launch from and land on the lake, and a second article about the experience of flying with him. These articles will be part of a special magazine published by RiverTown Multimedia in May 2020.
