In the center of Sequatchie Valley, a 65-mile long valley in the Cumberland Plateau region of the Appalachian Mountains is “Hang Gliding Capital of the East” Dunlap TN we went to a place called the” Club House” were the Tennessee Tree Toppers hang out , very welcoming to new comers a hang gliding community of pilots and friends, not really a business setting but these guys love their sport whether it be Hang Gliding or Paragliding this is their passion and their place. We meet our Instructor their and got all our gear together went to the ramp and did what they call a foot launch off, awesome we are soaring , instructor lets me make a few left and right turns then prepares me for making the landing, To land the hang glider, you have to stall it. As I approached the ground, I pushed the control bar as far out as I could. This tips the glider nose up, slowed the glider down and eventually stalls it to landing. I am glad I finally did it, was an awesome experience “get off the path” this place is Adventure Bums Approved
