Yankee1812's conversations

I was here at the 100th Anniversary back in 2003. They were trying to reenact the flight with a replica, but there just wasn't enough wind that morning. At the very minute, 100 years before, that the Wrights made their flight, I jogged at about 10ft/sec from the beginning of their path to the end, the same true ground speed the Wrights flew at. It's one of the greatest moments of my life, and I'm grateful no one else in attendance thought to do it. Heck, hardly anyone was even over by the historical path at that moment. The crowd was a couple hundred yards away staring at the rain-soaked replica 'Flyer' (which we all knew wasn't flying anywhere that morning).

This photo is of the bridge at the Songo River locks which are a few miles East at the junction of the Songo and Crooked Rivers.
