Sorry I've been remiss on keeping the blog current. But even the best of us need a vacation. Just returned from a week long vacation to the NW and Midwest. My wife and I took in Seattle, Port Townsend, Whidby Island, LaConner, Everett and Coupeville. Then a cross country train trip to Milwaukee. Followed by the MidWest Weasel Fest and side trips to Oshkosh, Greenbay and Cedarburg. Obviously it was a busy trip. Even though it's not totally RC related I thought I'd share some photos.

It was a blustery day out of the East. There a good crowd and lots of great flying. Several times we had groups of 4 or more planes flying in squadron formation rippin across the slope together. On the down side, Charlie lost his Mouton to a midair with a Gulp. Also, Larry lost sight of his eHawk 1500 and we found it pretty crunched up about 1500 ft downwind. Wayne wasn't up this weekend, so Ben and I ended up taking the pics.

Sorry I'm getting pictures up this week, but too many honey "do's" and not enough hours in the week. We flew on the North side above the power plant this last Saturday. Wasn't a spectacular day but lift was good nonetheless. Wayne was not around this weekend, so Ben and I took some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

For once we had more wind than we could use. Saturday had winds of 25 with bursts much stronger than that (35?). We were more worried about windburn rather than sunburn. As you can tell by the pictures nothing but serious slope planes were in the air, Moths, Gulps, Erasers. I was so busy pulling "half-pipes" that I forgot to take pictues. The only photog was Wayne, who shot most of his pictures before 11am.

Oops, one more Picture. Kurt, from Stuart, came down for a visit and brushed up on his slopeing skills.. Here's a shot of his F-84.

We had a break in our dry weather, It was an off and on rainy day. Nice wind out of the NE and when it was working, it was great. But the wind slowly shifted to the East and conditions declined. But by then it was 2PM and it was time for the Peachtree.
PS pictures are courtesy of Ben....Thanks Ben

It was a hot one today. Plenty of sun and pretty dusty. We flew on the South side and the wind and thermals were fairly good (15mph). But as the day dragged on the wind shifted to the East/South East and flying got tougher. We had a visitor from the Orlando Buzzards, Gordon (aussief3b), who came down to try out some slope flying. Unfortunately he arrived as the landfill was closing, so he had to settle for lunch at the Peachtree and some long tales from us about how great our flying was today!


PS Pictures are from Ben this week.....thanks Ben
