everybody always asks me "what happens when the engine quits",well this is it. I was 2 miles out and across the Tennessee river from Riley creek airport,near cloud base around 5,500'msl when I cut the engine. I took this video in July, 2010 it was a hot and hazy day I wore a coat ,It wasn't hot where I was.I play this personal game I made up,I don't have an x-box. I motor my glider up to 2,000'msl and throttle back to zero sink and hunt for thermals to circle in and take me to cloud base(fly fishing). when I get there I cut the engine off and try to stay up,this wasn't one of those times (drilled repeatedly by sink). the video is uncut and you can hear the effect of the wind on the mic as I have an in air narrative.what stoked me was the mother of all spot of landings.
