Alaska – one of the last great frontiers. Distant, intimidating, and wild, it has a population density of one person for every two square kilometres, and most of that concentrated in the capital city of Anchorage. So when you head into the outback, you’re truly going into the middle of nowhere.
That’s one thing that drew pro paraglider pilot Paul Guschlbauer to Alaska. The other thing? He had bought a plane – a 1959 Piper Super Cub – sight unseen. Of course, he’d have to head over to check it out. And once he was there, what would he use it for? To find more places to paraglide, of course.
