I finally got a chance to look through some of the video I shot during WeaselFest. Here is a clip that was taken just as the wind picked up early Saturday afternoon.

It was so fun to toss into a group of Weasels rippin' it up in great lift... flown by such talented pilots, including, Weasel designer and Dream-Flight owner, Michael Richter. It doesn't get much better than that.

We had a similar session on Sunday. Fun! Long live the Weasel!

P.S. It was crazy to see Doug Montgomery's GoPro equipped EasyRider flying through the fur ball. I was surprised he wasn't "taken out."

That was the biggest concentration of slopers in the air at once I've ever flown with...it was awesome. Was surprised at the relative lack of mid-airs. My thanks to the Santa Barbara folks for their hospitality. As usual Dawson nails it with his awesome flying and video presentation.

Dawson that was an awesome video and it was nice to see Doug's camera ship in action as well. Good lash-up with the song too.

Until next year

Great video Dawson. It fills in what I missed on that day since I ended up at the Ruins. If I'd known it was that wicked I'd been down the hill in a flash. Perhaps I didn't hear my phone with the alert .

I didn't think I was going to be able to have a proper maiden for my Fish so I put off my departure, day by day, 'til I called Andy on Thursday to meet at Ellwood, about one thirty, and it was "on" thankfully. We had a really fun hour or so which completed my trip. Thanks Andy!

I left SB after Ellwood and got home at noon Friday. Great drive back with a 4hour nap near the half way point. A quick "howdy" to my wife and off to the barn for some horsing around .

All told, another wonderful Fest and a spot is cleared for another 2000+ mile trip in '14.

Nice to see the faces/families old and new. Thanks to Michael and everone who keeps the Weasel spirit alive.
