hang gliding anyone???

I believe it's a little late to do it this year but is something i'm defiantly interested in doing. DETAILS: found a couple places in eastern shores that offer hang gliding. From heights between 1000ft-5300 (height depends on price) prices range between $150-$400. Looking to see if anyone would be interested in going and if anyone has already gone hang gliding I'd love to hear some input. Thanks

    Can I get an update of everyone still interested in hang gliding in September I believe the date is probably going to be the 20th

    August 6, 2014

    • Frank e K.

      [masked] if anyone wants to car pool let me know. I have room for 4. So far, two spots are filled.

      1 · September 19, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

      hang gliding today is at the accomack county airport.

      September 20, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Date is set September 20. Time is 10:00. Address is 33 Kerr St, Onancock, VA 23417. Continue to pass the word incase anyone else you may know would like to go as of right now we are around 10ppl and need 10 more to get the discount. Again I'll continue to keep everyone informed on what's going on and any changes that may come up.

    1 · August 26, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Ok have some good news just talked to Bill at Virginia hang gliding over at the eastern shore and he said if 20 people come and fly then he'd give us a discount, $100 per person for 1500' that's about a 15 min flight. I'm working with him on a date now, but it's looking to be in September. He seems cool and is willing to work with us on times so if some don't want to show up at 8:00am they can come a little later.He also has a buddy that does kayaking and said we could probably get a deal on that.

    August 3, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Yes this is a no go for tomorrow for 2 reasons one is the weather over where the flying would've been, 2nd is I still never heard back from the guy but I have a few other places in mind that I can check with accommodating a group this large I will continue to keep everyone informed on what's going on

    August 1, 2014

  • Irene

    Is this a no go for tomorrow?

    August 1, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Tried calling again today, still no reply. I'm going to try again tomorrow but if I don't hear anything back by tomorrow evening I think we ought to change date and location. How does the group feel about this?

    July 30, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    I'm trying to contact the guy down there and find out a good time to show up he hasn't called me back yet. I'm not sure if the tornado at cherry stone may have effected the ability for us to fly on the 2nd, I'll defiantly keep ya updated on any info I hear

    July 9, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

    I have to withdraw. I will be out of the country on 2 Aug.

    June 30, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    I talked to the guy today and he told me reservations are not necessary he's going to reserve the whole day for us also payments aren't do till the day of, due to the ability of not being able to predict weather the date may change if it rains or there is high winds that day. he also said a full day of flying normally consist of around 18 flights or so. We do have a large group going so I recommend getting there early. I'll continue to keep everyone posted as we get closer. So who has the next meet up idea, let's mark some bucket list items out :)

    Are there any meet ups before this? I am new to meet-up and have only seen this thread. Any other early August events or before?

    May 27, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

      Is there any zip line places in the Hampton area? In Richmond they have http://www.treetopzoo...­ also in August this year I fly ( indoor skydiving) should be opening up. Richmond also has an introduction class to white water kayaking that I'd like to do if anyone is interested let me know we can set it up

  • Valentine

    Hey Jimmy, how or when do we need to pay this by? Is there a deposit needed?

    May 7, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

      Nothing was said about paying in advance or making a deposit in the email that was sent to me. I plan on calling them and making reservations under the groups name "adrenaline junkies" then I'll post the number so everyone interested can call and reserve just so he has an account of how many people are planning on being there August 2. More info coming soon...

      1 · May 17, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Great news for everyone interested in the hang gliding trip August 2. I told him there were about 15ppl interested and he said that he would take $25 of everyone's flight if we get 15ppl to fly so a 2000ft flight just went to $115 or 2500ft flight for $125. Great job! More info to come....

    April 7, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

      Depends how far you willing to travel and how much you willing to spend. Skydiving, paragliding in nc, racing sports cars in nc at nccars, may is a GREAT time for white water rafting, in August indoor skydiving well be at va beach check out http://virginiabeach....­ .All in what you interested in whatever you decide post it up. -think outside the box and do something you've never done before, broaden your horizons

    I hate waking up at 7:00 on a saturday but this seems like an acceptable reason!

    April 3, 2014

    • Jimmy S.

      7:00 is a general time subject to change when I set the place I had to put a time in. I plan on calling the hang gliding center in the next few days and asking best available time for large groups once I get that I will update the time for everyone interested.

      2 · April 4, 2014

    If anyone knows any good places to eat down in the tidewater area, for after the trip, let me know

    March 29, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    The total number of people interested at this point is around 18+ people

    March 29, 2014

  • Jimmy S.

    Yes the Aug 2 date is definite I have told everyone that has said they were interested that even if nobody else can go I will be there Aug 2. However I'd love to see everyone come out for this.

    Best rates I found was at www.easternshorehanggliding.com they pull you up to 2500ft for $125. I work shift work so depending on the day we set the reservations I may or may not be able to go. If we can first decide on the month then I can tell y'all what weekends i'm off. Outside of this group I have about 8 other people interested we may be able to get group discounts if we have enough people going.
