I live in Morrison, CO just up against the Rocky Mtns. My wife, 2 daughters and I have been here since May ’07 and have been in heaven ever since. We like hiking and being outdoors in general. I swim, or Mtn Bike often to get rid of nervous energy and the biking here in Willow Springs is phenomenal. Gwen and I had sold our 2 Camp Bow Wow Dog Daycare/Boarding businesses in 2007 and are thankful to have the extra time to enjoy life. I’ve been focused(obsessesed) with hang gliding since the Summer of ’02. First it was just to get up higher and higher, then to stay up longer, then to go farther. I don’t know when the passion will let me go, but I’m loving it.
About that, we live 15 minutes from a fun flying site in Golden, CO. It’s a 1000ft thermal site and it really makes you work hard to rack up airtime. When the steam from the Coors plant blows into launch, the conditions are great to launch, and of course it smells like Hopps. Pretty great place.
