Before taking off, though, they prep students for the risks of getting airborne by covering risk assessment, proper gear handling, weather interpretation, and landing under emergency conditions such as high winds or raining meatballs. In addition to helping customers commemorate flights through photos and video, Just Fly Paragliding provides the means to fly with beginner and intermediate gliders by Ozone, Shoo'ka, and Flying Planet.:m]]

  • Lengthwise
    Grab a local brew, and take a seat. This brewery has everything you’ll need for a great night out. Try the Centennial Ale (6.5% ABV), which takes the traditional IPA and turns it on its head with a spicy hop flavor. If you’d like something a bit stronger, the Zeus Imperial Ale (9.7% ABV) is aged to perfection in empty bourbon barrels to add a unique, smoky flavor. Why not grab a bite with your brews? A full menu of delicious entrees are available. Check out the Stinky Chili Mac n Cheese, which is a spicy all-meat chili on top of a layer of homemade macaroni and cheese, covered with the house specialty Stinky Fries.
