Maybe they have smoothed the road since I went up there two weekends ago, 'cause I never had a problem last spring but the Prius couldn't make it on either road this time. Hope it's okay for you guys this weekend, but the forecast looks more like SDR.

don't worry, real slope nuts don't drive with a Prius (to the slope)
(No) punch intended.

Actualy my various weather forecast predict a mixed bag, but does it matter,..
somewhere there will be flyable conditions anyway

Can someone please get several photos (and maybe approx. measurements) of the LZ taken from different angles?

No, because LZ will be good for vertical landings anyway.

on a more serious note : can you please advise on ISO , preferred shutter speed and conversion factor imperial to metric, to provide accurate data

Cheers

Tri cities ...Where is everyone staying?

We will try to leave on Friday. We might try the new RV site out on Sunday night. Shower and swimming pool look inviting in the heat...

Looks like Eagle for Monday and SDR prior.

Looking forward to seeing those that can make it.

What is the name of that new RV park? I tried to find it a few weeks back to no avail, as they say.
