Wow, the forecast is big! Go get some Marty!
Was just watching old clips the other night, from Kepps back in -07/08, nice hill and good times.

Did you go? If I'd seen this earlier, I would have driven over. The Kinetic would have beat the hill record, sure.

I tried to fly on our little local hill, but there was so much dust blowing off the unplanted fields that I couldn't see more than a car length in front of me. Worse than any blizzard I've been in. So I turned around and went home.

it was BIG...i got there a little late. just before 5. it was 40+ and straight in. probably the cleanest and strongest i've seen up there.
i left the k-100 home since i had nobody else and our stalker pro is in slc anyway. i've kind of forgotten how many rocks are up there! yikes...no damage on landings and some pretty rocking speed!

Sounds like a FUN couple hours! Too bad there was no radar.
What did you take up there, D80 ?

Sounds fun! Glad you made it out. Can't let wind like that go unflown.

I have deep regrets that I wasn't there. Good that someone has flown that hill again in good conditions.

I was flying home from Maryland and didn't see this until now. I'd sure love to go when someone goes again. I didn't fly up there at all last year.

Please do! The excuse that an old friend is in town from waaaay back might give me cover for dodging some of my pile of responsibilities.
