John Paris hang gliding 1973

John Paris

I remember my dorm-mate John Paris. He had a silver tooth in front -- very unusual for the time. I helped him carry his hang glider (rather heavy) about a mile or so to a remote part of campus, and watched him practice. He would laboriously carry his hang glider up a small hill, run to pick up speed, and glide for maybe 5 seconds. Then he'd repeat the process. I still have dreams today about gliding like that. (Just dreaming -- I have never flown a hang glider.)
