93: Monkeys, Coconuts, Field Fires & John Denver: An Interview With Don Ingraham
Soaring the sky a glider pilot's Podcast
Don Ingraham was living in Minneapolis when he was bitten by the soaring bug in 1993 at age 39. Thanks to the tutelage of Bob Wander, by age 40 he had soloed, earned a PPG certificate and purchased a Jantar Standard.Over the next couple of years he flew the Jantar to more than a dozen MN State Soaring records and kept busy during the winters refinishing it in gelcoat (with much phone advice from George Applebay). Don started flying contests in it in 1996 and moved up to a Discus in 1999. His wife, Kathy, was always willing to track him down, trailer in tow, when he couldn’t make it home from a XC flight. He won the Hilton Cup in 1999 and got to make a dream come true - meeting top pilots and flying different gliders from the Hilton Ranch for ten days straight. A few years later, in 2003, he asked Kathy what she thought about the idea of going into business running a commercial glider operation. He explained the six-figure salary would be gone and there was a very steep and potentially perilous learning curve. And it would take a big chunk of money. And he had no idea how to do it. And they had two toddlers, Chase (2) and Ali (4). Kathy paused for a moment, then asked how he would feel, years from now, looking back,if he went back to the stable-yet-now-soul-crushing computer world and never tried to start his own business. Don said he’d feel like a frumpy cowardly wimpy loser. Kathy said she didn’t want to be married to that guy, so game on! Don and Kathy built a website, bought a tow plane (Socata Rallye 235E) and a glider (Grob 103 Twin II) and opened the doors of Cross Country Soaring in Faribault Minnesota in 2004. They now operate a second Grob 103 and a have a winch. He is beginning his 17th year in operation. Check it out crosscountrysoaring.com Bob Wander was a key factor in Don’s success in pursuit of life in the sky and they have remained good friends. Bob asked Don to write a book based on a talk he delivered at the Sport’s Aviation Conference in Minneapolis in 1996.That book is now available at bobwander.com for a song! It is called, “The Final Four Minutes - Landing Out”. Bob wrote the second half.

Charlie Rich whipping out his lighter, and burning the card announcing John Denver as the 1975 CMA Entertainer of the Year is considered one of the great moments of protest in country music history. But was his intent to protest John Denver's win, or something else?

9. John Denver (John’s in Denver), Keeping it in the Family with Matthew Campione, and our new Jingle for Inspiration Roofing of Dallas, TX
Pod Help the Outcasts
In This Episode: John has finally lost his mind and fled New York. Will he come back, ever? It’s not looking good. I have this feeling this will be the first of many more remote Pods. Please, no one think that John HATES New York. He doesn’t HATE it. He just LOVES mountains more. So, respectively, I think you could call that hate but IT’S NOT HATE. Anyway, he has to come back because there are lots of very exciting things coming in the fall and we have much exciting Pod content to bring to the world. OH. MAN. OHHHHHHHHHHHH MAAAAAN. I think it’s no secret that here on POD HELP THE OUTCASTS things can quickly turn into a bromance fest. This week, it happens way earlier in the episode than usual. Enter Matthew Campione and Inspiration Roofing. John’s younger brother Matt, the ‘fit and funny one’, owns a company in Dallas, Texas called Inspiration Roofing. They’ve been hit during the pandemic but luckily, for the most part, they have been able to stay pretty stable due to the nature of what they do. Social distance and roofing happen to compliment on another. He says they have seen a slow down, naturally, because of economy slowing, which is understandable. SPOILER ALERT: REALLY GOOD INSURANCE ADVICE. WE SHOULD BE CHARGING A SUBSCRIPTION FOR THIS ADVICE. What we love about Matt and his team is that they work with insurance on your behalf. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to go back and forth with condo board and insurance and it’s SUCH A PAIN IN MY BLACK ASS. The irony here is that Matt and his Project Manager, Kevin, look weirdly exactly like John and I. Whoa. Weird. Go to website and look. My mind just exploded a bit.
