I don't remember seeing any RC gliders while I was there - but then I wasn't exactly looking for them either - given the <ahem!> nature
of the scenery, so-to-speak.
I do remember that the trail was one hell-of-a climb. I sometimes walked down that steep road on the south end. There was an old VW Beetle that couldn't make it back up the hill sitting off the end of the road.I heard that it was still sitting there in the 80s. I remember lots of other stuff from there as well, but most of it's not the sort of stuff one can discuss on here... Ahh, yes.....those were the days...
When I was there in 06 a guy landed his sloper down on the beach and walked down. The people that had it had "rekitted it" and threatened him with bodily harm as well. I hadn't heard of it being quite that contentious prior to that. I was careful to stay in the main lift bubble the entire time
