    Hi all! Living just north of Atlanta originally from Northern Virginia. Been flying models and gliders most of my life. Spent 35 years as a news videographer, now retired. Now putting the two talents together to have some fun and make a little money. These pics are 1983 so yeah, I'm older! ;) Best, Rich

    Welcome, I recently spent some time near Blairsville at a little campground called Choestoe Falls RV Park. That is a very pretty area.

    If you ever return you should check out the Chilhowee Gliderport Glider port it's just a bit north of Blairsville.

    Website?
    You might have seen the ad for "FlyhighUSA". That's Ralph Rigdon and he's great. Just took delivery on one of his Extreme battery mods and hoping to test it out in the next couple of days.
    Cheers,
